Quote from Ben61694 View Post :
Can't tell if you're genuinely serious, or just trolling. Beats are overpriced garbage. Let me rephrase in case someone thinks I'm just hating on the brand, they're "not garbage" if they were say sub $100, but for $300, I'd rather set my money on fire. I've personally heard the Solo and you couldn't pay me to keep those. It sounded so unnatural. $200 price tag and my old $80 modded 555's were beating them by far.

Pretty much any audiophile forum you glance at will tell you the same. All it is is marketing/name brand and jacked up prices. Not to mention, it's loaded with false advertising. A prime example would be: Studio beats are said to be studio quality, yet studio quality is supposed to be neutral, is it not? Then why is there an abundant amount of bass? They're not studio quality and are not worth the price you pay.

If you're really interested in figuring out the best bang for your buck, I suggest going to an audiophile forum such as http://www.head-fi.org/ or the likes and read up on price per performance for whatever your price range is. I personally like Sennheiser, but Beyerdynamic, Audio Technica, AKG, etc.

It's ultimately up to you to decide what you spend your money on. I don't go around bashing people who I see have beats or anything, but I do feel the need to inform them if they decide to ask about them in a potential purchase.
I really can't stand how Monster comes along and sells overpriced equipment and markets it as if it's the best ever. They pulled the same crap with their $150 HDMI "mega" "triple super duper" cables and all their other "superior" connecting gear. Then people realized the scam they were pulling and stopped buying, so they retooled and starting infiltrating the headphone industry with Dr. Dre "beats" as their distraction from the Monster name. Anything by Monster is always going to be almost all marketing and not a good value for the money spent. That is how they roll.

I wish people would stop throwing their money away on merchandise that is all marketing hype and is worth less than 25% of its actual retail price. But I guess that would be an alternate universe where the majority of people weren't complete boobs.....

OT - can i ask you headphone geniuses something;

how can I buy just such a cloth jacket (what are they called so i can google for it) that goes around the edge of the earcup (the part that comes in contact with skin around your ear) so I can use something like that on my own Sanheiser to cover it's black plastic. I currently use women's cotton toe socks that i slip over the entire can, but that's obvious a kludge.

Try ear cover or cushion on Amazon, quite a few options.
Mind you they not only add comfort, but change the sound signature of headphones. Hth

MADE IN GERMANY.

We have some real high quality cans here. I'd believe every spec down to the thousandth.

I wonder how they'd compare to my Audio-Technicas, LOL!

I own the DT 880 Pro (250 Ohm), and I actually feel like the E17 is a poor match. I obviously can't comment on how it would sound with the DT 990. My Audioengine D1 does a much better job with the DT 880 than the E17 -- much fuller soundstage and better mids and highs. Other viable DAC options in the E17's price range would be the Audioquest Dragonfly v1.0 and the Schiit Modi, both of which are often rated more highly than even the Audioengine D1. I do think the E17 is a good value, but I'm not sure it's the best option for the Beyers based on my experience with the DT 880.
I kinda agree, I own a DT880 myself and I use headstage arrow and it drives them pretty good. I wasn't impressed with E17 either but for the price it's a good value, definitely there are better options for beterdynamic headphones when it comes to amps than e17. Portable config has limited options but if you prefer a desktop setup explore head-fi forums for ideas.

Got these last week and love them. coming from hd-555 which I had for a very long time and decided to get these for 148 last week from amazon and it was worth the upgrade, bass is so much better, the build is much better as well.

I have it hooked up with my asus xonar essence stx and now I just gotta burn them in now. Gaming wise I find them better as well compared to my hd-555 especially in csgo.

I got these for 155 back in July of '13, they hover around 175 usually so it isn't that much off. They are totally worth 150 bucks and are the best headphones I have ever used. Please not you WILL need a headphone amplifier to enjoy them or they are useless.

I also own a fiio e09k desktop amp, I can hear a noticeable difference between the e17 and e09k, in favor of the e09k



E7 should do a good job powering these
Thank you...I ordered a pair to use with my E7! I didn't really want to have to order another $100+ amp Smilie

Currently have a pair of M50s so I wanted open cans this time.

Wow.. I really wish I had the money to buy these. I bought a new phone and several other things that won't allow me to buy more toys till next week,

WHEN I get a real nice set of cans, I also want to get a decent amp to hook up to the PC and listen this way.

Does anyone have any experience with these small vacuum tube headphone amps?

Well this is a great headphone, I got mine for more than $200....For the 250 Ohm, a AMP is a must, I am using a Aune T1, man, that amazing small tube just works!!

http://www.head-fi.org/products/aune-t1

http://www.amazon.com/Aune-T1-Upg...B00A2QJMRY

Yes I've used Aune T1 for 2 years, and it's worth every penny.

I am using the lossless WAV files, and a $100 German tube.

Noted. Thanks for sharing. I've been eying those little tube haedphone amps for quite some time. There are tons of generics from china, but I'd never waste the money on one of them no matter how good of a deal it seems. I just don't trust their specs.

Looks like an Aune will be what I get for sure. Thanks again for sharing your experience with it!

I bought this two weeks ago from amazon for the same price so I'm not sure of the slickness of this deal. I thought that open headphone would improve sound stage but realized that a non-silent room (computer fans) can negate the benefit.
