Sony MDR-V6 (personal fave), Creative EP-630 for portable use, JVC HA-FX33 Marshmallow's for throwing around.

I don't see enough people here representing the beyerdynamic DT-770's, I have the 80ohm pro versions and I love them. The sealed cans do a great job of blocking outside noise almost as well at the HD280's and the plush idk what fabric it is suede? is really comfortable. The pads also seal very well around the ears. The bass is on the heavy side according to some other audiophile types, but I tried several headphones out and fell in love with the nice heavy bass on these. The mids and highs are also very clear, much better than the similar AD700's or M50's from audiotechnica I think, also tried some HD595's.

I drive these with my Asus Xonar STX which btw I absolutely love, amazing card.. I would recommend this card hands down to anyone looking to drive headphones with a computer while not spending over 800 dollars in stand alone amps.

Anyways in the end you have to remember it comes down to more personal preference when talking audiophile grade headphones and equipment. Since each device will have its own sound coloration and you must choose which suits your tastes best or music styles best.

DT-770 pro80's FTW tho!

Hi Hi

I'm really lucky that my dad let me have one of his old amps. It's an Arcam Delta 90 from about 1990 but it's incredibly powerful. I've never listened to them with just a sound card but because mine are the 250 ohm version my e-mu doesn't pack near enough punch to drive them.

I recently had no money, and was selling stuff off (iPod, other headphones, pocket amp). But i couldn't sell my beyers because i love them so much <3

Indeed I'm also a big fan of beyers. But I've only had the pleasure of hearing the 880 250ohms version.

Saw your impressions on Hfi. Very nice indeed. I hope to get one myself but for the inflated price atm a RS1 seem more valuable.

I started using my Triple.fi 10's again (I somehow missplaced them). Anyways, the silicon tips kept moving out of my ear (which really ruins the music) and I ended up losing a tip yesterday. So I switched to my Comply tips and everything sounds amazing again.

Hi guys. I don't know if I should be asking this question here, but I guess you guys know a lot about headphones.

I found some headphones in my budget and just need to know which one is the best.
http://www.frys.com/product/2574581?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG
http://www.frys.com/product/5578890?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG
http://www.frys.com/product/2574601?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG
http://www.frys.com/product/6085128?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

And here another set of headphones that are a little out of my budget, but I might deiced to get one of these if I can wait long enough.

http://www.frys.com/product/120234?s...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG
http://www.frys.com/product/2574561?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

I will be using these to listen to hip-hop/rap and r&b.

If you have any other recommendation please tell me. I prefer to get them from frys or newegg.

Thanks a lot for your help.
