Nice choice. Loved my HF-2's until I lost them somewhere in China :(. The sound isolation with foamy tips is amazing for long-flights.

Pretty. Never heard of them before.



I use Beyer 880/600 at home. Extremely comfy. Balanced sound.


Sold my AKG's and threw my Grados out the window.

AT ADH-A70O, Grado SR60 & Harmon-Kardon Premium BT in the basement; Martin - Logan Mikros90 on the main floor; AKG Q601 (with a Pro-Ject HP amp) and Bose Soundlink OE on top floor; finally Plantronics Backbeat Pro for commuting.

Sennheiser HD800 with an HDVD800 as my main setup. A few other pairs for various uses... Amperiors, IE800 earbuds, etc.

Just bought some Fidelio X2s, so far they are stellar, not even using amplification...

Got some Sony MDR-EX650 T the other day. The best sub $100 earbuds I've ever heard. Think they're Euro or Japanese market only or something.

At home on my PC I have Sennheiser RS 180 (wireless) and they're great.

I use an Audeze LCD-2 plugged into a Burson Audio DAC+Rega Brio Amp combination.


For portable use, Westone 4R plugged into an Astell and Kern AK100...

What else is everyone using in the $500ish range? I'm looking for something over-ear, closed, with minimal leakage. This will mostly be used with my desktop system with a Yulong D200 DAC / headphone amp. (Using Adam F5 speakers with that) Currently I have some AT M50s I've had for a long time, and Etymotic ER-4s for earbuds. Since this is mostly for my desktop, portability isn't a huge issue although if it's something I can take on the road (I'm a musician) it would be a plus.

I haven't had a chance to audition them but I'm considering things like the Oppo PM1, NAD HP50, etc. Any thoughts or suggestions?

You might want to try Bowers and Wilkins P5

Thanks, I'll try to give them a listen as well. I'm a big fan of their speakers (had some 602s for a while 10-15 years ago), but have never tried their headphones. Any thoughts on P5 vs P7?
post #130 of 141

People say P7 is significantly better than P5. I own a P5, Beyerdynamic DT1350 and a Thinksound On1. I like the P5 but I do use the Thinksound a lot too.

I found a couple of good comprehensive reviews of this price range:

Anyone tried the B&O H6? I sort of thought of B&O as more of a "designer headphone" but reviews seem pretty good.

This review was pretty positive for the Oppo PM-3 (mistyped and said PM-1 above, which is out of my range): http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-400-over-ear-headphones/

I've had an Oppo BDP-80 blu-ray player for 5 years or so and have been pretty happy with it, so I think I might give the PM-3 a try. Reviews seem pretty great and my personal experience with the company has been positive. I'll post once I try them for a while.

I've had the Oppo PM-3s a couple of days now. Used them for a music transcription/re-orchestration gig for about 8 hours today and they've been pretty fantastic. Definitely my current faves.

Got the new RHA T20i earbuds in black from the Apple store. Still breaking in but nice sound quality with the reference filters. Very comfortable and nicely isolating on noise.

I got some Sony MDR-XB500's a few years ago at an outlet for $50, only recently opened them. They were a lot better than expected, but when I looked to go buy another set as a gift I found that unopened ones go for $250+ on eBay now
