Best 5.1 Headphones - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
I found this compairing the Ultrasone Pro 900 and Denon AH-D600's.
"Ok here it is. As I sit here and A/B the Pro 900 and the d600 it is quite easy to hear stark differences. The d600 is far more engaging than the Pro 900. The 900 excels in just one area, it has a certain way of delivering bass that is punchy, accurate and addictive. Other than that the Denon simply demolishes the Ultrasone in musicality, presence, midrange and highs - especially the mids. That's not to say the Denon lacks bass. It just doesn't have as much and doesn't have that special X-factor that the Ultrasone has in that regard.

As I listened to the Pro 900 the whole delivery of the music was a bit thin, lacking body and weight. Voice and most mids were small with a rather tiny image. The highs were very smooth without the slightest hint of harshness. Very listenable headphone. But with the Pro 900 I was continually reminded that I was listening to music through headphones.

As I listened to the Denon d600 I felt much more engaged with the music and less aware of the pesky distraction of the small headphone stage of the Pro 900. Voice image was larger and more real. Mids smooth completely non fatiguing. Highs perhaps slightly subdued but this makes for a more listenable delivery for me. Very nice detail yet forgiving with less than perfect recordings.

In my humble opinion, the Denon d600 is a far superior set of cans. The long cable is a nice feature as well."

So now I'd really appreciate further feedback from you headphiles please.
What do you think between them?!

Don't count out Schiit products for amps: http://schiit.com/cart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=0&products_id=16

I personally use Beyerdynamic DT990 250ohm for gaming and they work great. Don't spend a bunch of money if you don't have to.
