If you prefer the sound of the bowls but the comfort of the HD414, do what I did:


Thanks, I think I'll give that a shot!

For the record, I don't dislike the sound of the HD555, I just prefer the two Grados I tried for most of the stuff I listen to, and if I were to own two sets of cans I'd go for something more complementary to the Grado sound.  The 555s are pretty dark and neutral, and aren't enough to make me want to take off the SR225i to hear something through a different kaleidoscope.

I myself have SR325i, and my alternative kaleidoscope as you put it, is the Shure SRH840. The SRH840 is heavy, but I find that it's different enough that it makes a good alternative. What is more, it's amazing for a closed can, so it's a good alternative for that reason too. Another point is, I sold my ATH-AD700 because SRH840's gaming performance was that good.

  • The SRH840 is my closed can, my neutral can, my gaming can, and my alternative.
  • The SR325i is my fun can. My "I want to listen to this album from start to finish" can. It's my favorite sound ever, especially with the 414 reversed quarter mod. It's THAT good.
  • The Sony MDR-V6 with my beyer DT250 pads is a special case. It doesn't do anything better than the SRH840, EXCEPT it's paper light. When I want the absolute epitome of comfort, I turn to my MDR-V6. Also, I can never lose these cans as they were a gift from my love and my first good can. <3

Me too, they are just so great that in their price range, they truly de-grade all other headphones out there.

I knew that. What I didn't know was that they made headphones.

However, what I found appealing (I bought the lower-priced one, many years back) was the high-output (which meant you could use it with a regular hi-fi setup, not requiring a special pre-preamp) moving coil from Ortofon.

I've decided the 280Pros are too uncomfortable and that the 555s spoiled me with their delicious velour love. To that end I think I'm going to sell both and pick up a pair of DT770s.

I bought the headphones anticipating a better amp but unfortunately that never happened. presently I'm using a Little Dot I+. It seems to suit me well for all my other cans, but not for these. It's better now with a higher gain mode and the right tubes but it wasn't meant for HD600's at all. More grados than anything.

Given that headphones usually come with male phono plugs, you certainly do plug your headphones into your preamp.

It's true that when describing a hi-fi system, sometimes one speaks of things in source to output order: Goldmund Reference with Koetsu Rosewood Signature Platinum into Quicksilver MC into Quicksilver Full into Krell Evolution e into KEF Muons.

But this is a hi-fi convention, not standard English usage.

I have the grado sr80i.  They completely changed my perspective on audio.  I really want a good pair of closed phones too.  I am most excited about the possibliity of customizing the DT770's through beyer's website, but that method starts at $299 (before shipping) and you can easily add $60+ in options.  They're the same as the silver ones you can grab on amazon for $179, but how can you pass up custom headphones?  I think that pro version is discontinued, which might explain the price jump.  It seems like they completely dropped that dj section from their website.

Correction: the DJ section is no longer blank and the pro's are listed there again.

I kinda fancy a pair of open headphones too, to go alongside my DT770s. The DT770s are fantastic and sounded, and blocked out noise a hell of a lot better than my friend's battery powered noise cancelling headphones which cost him around 60. However, I'd also like something open as I'm not too bothered about noise cancellation + noise leakage when I'm sitting in my room!

Just nabbed a FUBAR IV DAC + headphone amp when I found out my uncle grabbed me a pair of ATH-M50 phones. They are so hard to find in Canada (at a decent price) but more easily found in HK. Should be fun. Plugging into the computer audio jack just doesn't cut it.

Natalie Portman was amazing in Black Swan.

I still need to decide on a set of headphones but will prob end up with a closed set and an open set.  Most of the time I want to block out noise so I'm really leaning toward the Denon D2000's.  For open it would be Senn 555-650's.

Been focusing more on amps/dacs and sources lately.

Anyone ever tried Stax?

The quality on the one I got for Black Swan was the best i'd seen in a long time.  Then again, we're on a 36" CRT with XBMC/Orig Xbox as a source.  But it was definitely DVD comparable.  It's the one that's 1.x GB and the only weirdness is a brief watermark at the beginning of the film.

Been using Denon AH-D2000's and a FIIO E7 portable amp/USB DAC for a week now... LOVE IT!!!   FYI, the FIIO is scorable for $75 free ship if you make an offer to the US seller on ebay.  That's cheap.  So far I say it's worth it, especially as a USB DAC.  There are bundles with a E9 dock/desktop amp that can push high ohm cans for under $200 total online as well.  I'm waiting on that until I see what comes out from some manufacturers over the next months, including the E15 from FIIO.

But these headphones are amazing.  A great counterpart to my Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10vi's.  The Denons are actually pretty efficient and don't sound horrible straight out of an Ipod.  They sound fantastic on a home receiver.

On the headphone side of things I'm entering the mid to high end, but I'm not at the far reaches of space (HD800, T1, R10, Stax, etc). I have SR325i, and HD580. Which are already on the far reaches of space for normal people, but just beginning for headphone users.

I also have SRH840, and boy does it sound good but the build quality is just plain crap.

The headband is unnecessarily large, and too thin for how big it is. And it just falls apart. It was coming apart within a year.

Well.. in a quiet listening environment... with a headphone amp... and only considering sound quality... The Grado's sound better.

however...

I mostly use these during my subway commute and walking in the city.  The Beats have a punchier bass and sound really nice over street traffic and the rails :) (I don't like full noise cancelling because I need to be somewhat aware of my environment).

pros for the Beats:
- bassss
- collapsible

Question for you OPEN headphone owners, especially Senn 595-650's and Beyerdynamic DT880's and similar...

Can you hear a phone ring easily with them on?

Would the sound leakage annoy someone over a 6ft cube wall in a moderately quiet office?

I'm thinking of trying opens so I'm not so shut out at the office but don't want to annoy anyone.  If its at a reasonable volume (Milton) I wouldn't be concerned and can't imagine them being that loud since I don't like damaging my ears.
