I'm glad you went with the premiums over the pros, the comfort is just... ahhhhhh~

So good.

Anyways, I'm thinking about picking up some K701s used for around $200 to replace my ultrasones. Anyone have any experience with them, and want to give some input?

You have external amplification right?

I have an STX, which seems to provide ample power for K701s despite their low sensitivity.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the headphone amplifier in the STX seems more than capable at powering the K701s, specs wise.

Was also considering an HD600 with a moon audio blue dragon cable v3.

Also considering a pair of HE-400s

Thoughts?

EDIT: Will probably be going with the HE-400s

Picked up my Beyerdynamic DT990 Pros 250 ohm today.
450
You can add me to the club! biggrin.gif

INITIAL IMPRESSIONS
-VERY light. I had to check to make sure they were in the box after I bought them tongue.gif
-Great build quality, feels very rigid
-Super soft earcups
-HUGE
-Very detailed sounding.

Don't have much to say about the sound as I only just started listening to them. They sound better than my Beats by Dre Studios already, and that's without an amp!

Now time to save for an amp. What do you guys recommend? I'm thinking Fiio E17 unless you can suggest something different. I'd like to have some portability so I can use with my phone the odd time.

Man, EVERYONE is recommending that. It just doesn't look portable to me and IMO the Fiio amps look nicer. Also the O2 says it supports up to 250ohm headphones while the E17 says 300. I kind of want a Fiio amp so I can get a E9 to dock the E17 or E7 or whatever I end up getting. Unless there's something completely wrong with Fiio... thinking.gif

it has much more power than the fiio and is a much better value, while not super portable it can be used portably for the odd occasion as you say, you wont regret it

Interesting. Say price isn't a factor here, which is more powerful, the O2 or the Fiio E7 + E9?

After listening to my DT990 Pros for a couple hours I now have a good idea of how they sound, and MAN is this unbelievable. Keep in mind I'm upgrading from a pair of Beats by Dre Studios. The quality of the 990s unamped is FAR better than the quality of the beats. I find it completely unbelievable that the sound quality of these can get better with an amp. Crazy to think that I got these for the same price I sold my heavily used beats for. I listen to electronic music (mostly trance), and take my word these are a perfect headphone for that type of music. The sound is at a perfect balance of bright and dark, and it'll only get better with an amp.
