help me chose my next headphones

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so guy its time for me to upgrade my audio and I need your advice on what headphones to get keep in mind they have to be open back for that sick af sound stage and they have to have like really good imaging and im talking audiophile level headphones not a crappy headset so my budget is about 250 USD for a headphone and if needed an amp and or DAC I was thinking maybe the DT990 pro or the hd6xx or 58x but I heard those last two have very limited sound stage for an open back set

edit: I've never used these, but have heard nothing but great reviews. I have a pair of bose qc35ii for that sweet noise-cancellation, and also love the sound. I don't know how great of audiophile level you can get for 250 USD, but from reviews, these sennheisers are the closest thing

Paying the extra $50 for the 6XX is worth it by all means, much better than 58X. Anyway, if you really want the Beyer's then get the 880's instead.

If you're patient you can often grab Philips Fidelio X2s / X2HRs on eBay under $200 or they're $220 new on AliExpress.  They're only 35ohm so you can honestly get by without a DAC.
