Planar headphones
 |

Hello there I've been thinking of buying new headphones to replace/go alongside with my Beyerdynamic 770 Pro's (250Ohm). Most likely a closed-back set (sadly) as my workplace is pretty noisy and the sound would bleed through. Right now the Likely winners are the Monoproce Monolith M1060C's, but I'm open to sugestions. Price range is around 300$ US, and shoul dbe able to ship to Czech Republic, or at least to Germany (I can arrange shipping from there) I enjoy warmer/darker headphones, possibly V-shaped (hence the beyers) Thx for the help lads

I recommend Audio-Technica ATH-AG11x or Astro A50 Wireless if you consider the wire annoying.

Edit, i should have specified, not looking for a gaming headset, so no attached mic needed. Also, I'd prefer to go wired, they headphones will run on a Fiio E10K DAC/Amp. Any suggestions on planar magnetic options?

imo 300$ is way too much for a pair of wired headphones. btw why are you replacing Beyerdynamic 770 Pro?

Upgrading it fam, and 300$ is not much in the Hi-Fi world, the M1060C's are pretty much budget planars, there are options from companies like Audeze's LCD-X's that costs fromm upper 100's to 1000's of dollars

It's much especially if you are only listening to music/watching movies. I would buy a 300$ headset if I was a music producer or a professional music critic.

I get what you mean, but that's the way it goes on the audiophile world, you upgrade because you can, not because you need to. I mean, things like mechanical keyboards, 1000Hz mouses (mice? controversy) and high refreshe monitors (+G-sync/FreeSync) aren't really necessary, but they are just nice to have, it's about the user experience

Mechanical keyboards (versus membrane ones, and versus different switches), good mice (not talking about HZ, just sensor and shape) and monitors make actually a difference because they are actually better and you can feel the difference. But I get you, I also like to have good sound (I own the beyerdynamic 990DT pro), but there's a point where if your ears aren't sensitive enough to pick up the sound upgrade, you won't hear any difference in quality whatsoever (not talking about different bass or treble emphasis, just sound quality). Just my opinion, though.

Agreed, but there's still an audible diffference between dynamic drivers and planars, especiallyin the quickness of the response and accuracy due to the inherent differrences in the technology. It has diminishing returns, of course, and you need to be able to hear it, but when you can, i don't see the point in not going for it

Yeah, if you appreciate the differences and have the money, go for it. I would do the same. But I was just saying that you can't compare them directly with mice, keyboards and monitors because even a little difference in those is easier to notice than with headphones.

Fair enough, it's pretty subjective really :D Just curious, what DAC/Apm do you use with the 990's?

Not using them ATM because the jack connector broke somehow and I gotta repair it but I'm too lazy. Using my Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE right now though, and they are pretty good. And I have the same Fiio E10K you are using because I don't have enough money to buy a better amp :/

Mostly listening to music or watching movies. If they're good for gaming (soundstage, positioning etc.) then good, but it's not a criteria. I've go the 770's for that :D

Hello there

I use oppo pm3 and they sound very good and look really nice. Very comfortable. But they require a dac to have any bass. I use oppo dac.

They do look rather nice, but since they are designed as portables, i'd be worried about a higher clamp force, any info? Plus, flat response y'know, nothing against it, but i'd like something a bit more lively. I'll keep it in mind as an option though. Thx mate

They are comfortable to wear if that's what you are wondering.
