    Thank me later.
    These but only if he is listening inside (open ear that leak a ton) and he has an amp (300 Ohms is a hard load to drive from a phone)

    Check this out Will:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01L1IIF1A/ref=emc_b_5_t

    Comes with a long cable and a shorter one.

    I have the Senn HD 596C's and they are pretty solid all around cans.


    if you are looking planar magnetic look here:

    https://www.amazon.com/HE400i-Full-s...xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==


    a LOT lighter than my Audezes though the cable on the HifiMan 400s suck IMO. They get you into planar sound for a cheap price. Easy to drive and sound pretty great.

    Sennheiser HD 25


    LOL at anyone who doesn't own these

    Used by most professional DJs and music producers (not due to sponsorship but because of actual audio quality) - best closed back headphones money can buy - can hear practically every nuance of frequency

    I have:

    beyerdynamic dt 770 80 ohm - closed headphones, better for bass, come in multiple ohm variations.

    Philips Audio Fidelio X2HR Over-Ear Open-Air - these are clearer but will leak some sound, sound leakage isnt as bad as I thought it would be, its pretty quiet. less bass

    For around $100, IMO, you can't beat Shure SE215.

    For OP, I second the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD6XX. I don't own them personally because I already have HD600s, but I always hear great things about them. Plus, I love my HD600 cans.

    I just put in my order for the Massdrops. They're apparently copies of the HD650's rather than the HD600's. Regardless, I'm much excite very anticipate.


    I was on the fence about ordering them, but too many artists i listen to are releasing albums (PartyNextDoor, Childish Gambino, Weeknd, etc). Plus there was a $20 off sign up offer. They came to $185 after shipping and taxes. Couldn't pass that up.

    Will bump thread in a week or two with initial impressions.

    Just went to amazon to check. The ones they're offering now are definitely upgraded from mine.

    In these stock photos, it's clear and obvious the cable is detachable. Back when I bought mine in 2014, they were not detachable at all. Mind nuked they lasted as long as they did.

    Not a gotdamn thing. Like i told a previous miscer, I'm not going down a rabbithole blowing money on pre-amps n chit. My M50s were a night and day difference to ANYthing I ever used and i direct connected them to laptop/iphone.

    If i have to start buying pre-amps and all this goofy chit to enjoy the massdrops, then i'll sell them and get the upgraded m50s (with detachable cable)

    good luck with your volume goals running it off a phone in 2020.

    The AT was around 38 Ohms, those Senns are 300 Ohms.
    But who was impedance??

    I mis spoke OP. I have the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. GREAT form factor and slightly more bass heavy than the Audiotechnicas. Certainly a better build factor. Thing is I kept my ATH-M50s for 6 years or so before they were worn out. I have had my Beyerdynamics for about 2 years and they are great



    Reason mine are 32 Ohms is because I don't use an amp but if you do they have 80 & 250 Ohms also available.

    Not a gotdamn thing. Like i told a previous miscer, I'm not going down a rabbithole blowing money on pre-amps n chit. My M50s were a night and day difference to ANYthing I ever used and i direct connected them to laptop/iphone.

    If i have to start buying pre-amps and all this goofy chit to enjoy the massdrops, then i'll sell them and get the upgraded m50s (with detachable cable)
    you are going to be very disappointed with your purchase without an amp. Its more than a volume issue, you will be lacking power for the drivers.

    https://www.schiit.com/products

    their $99 dac and amp is probably all you ever need if you think your old headphones are amazing. they do the job and have 5 years warranty. this is way before the rabbithole, this is just basic essentials.

    yeah those 6xxs need power, not really the choice for phone power

    schiit stack is $200 and solid but there were a lot of headphones you passed over that wouldn't have needed power

    philips shp9500. can get them for under $80 at newegg or amazon.

    used to have m50's until they broke. these are open back and use cloth for headband and earpads. m50's pleather started to peel very quickly, and hinges cracked after a couple of years.

    Reason mine are 32 Ohms is because I don't use an amp but if you do they have 80 & 250 Ohms also available.
    Hard to imagine a pair being more bass-tuned than the ATHM50s but good to note. Like you said, M50s certainly last a long time but they leave a lot to be desired in terms of quality-feels in hand.

    If you've never ordered from drop, they remove $20 off your first order.

    Don't really care about phone performance, my primary listening source is my MacBook Pro. If i'm salty about sound quality or sound volume level I will immediately bump this thread and say you guys were right. That said, i think your concerns are a bit exaggerated in this case.

    The best part for me is I'll be enjoy a nice new pair of headphones immediately and if i decide to get a pre-amp down the road, i'll have a pair that'll make the best of it. I was just trying to avoid researchingresearchingresearching, upgradingupgradingupgrading, then before i know it I'm looking at a fuking $550 setup when I could have just replaced my previous amazing pair for $150. These ain't the times to be lighting money on fire.

    the issue isn't using your device's power, the issue is the 6xxs are very high impedance drivers, in that they require a lot of power to function properly. you're basically trying to tow a semi trailer with a pickup. yeah it's gonna move but it's gonna work a whole lot better with an actual tractor. exaggerated but i'm trying to illustrate the point. it's not to say you're gonna be disappointed with them, it's moreso to say that there were better options when the intent was to drive it off device power

    That's an analogy that makes more sense. I'll look into potentially picking up an amp in May sometime while virtually every company on planet earth is offering sales to get income flowing

    you should have just listened from the getgo instead of doing incomplete research. The FiiO K3 is not strong enough to power your HD650s dude, you are still not experiencing the headphones capabilities
