What Kind of Headphones Do you Use for DMB and Other Favorite Artisits?

I just got a pair of the Beats Studio 3 cans and am in love. I tried a few other ones in the past, but none have fulfilled my needs like these.

Very happy man here, !

    What Kind of Headphones Do you Use for DMB and Other Favorite Artisits?

    I rotate among these, depending on where am I:

    • FiiO F9 Pro in ears (just amazing) - when I move around
    • Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 Ohm (Carter’s Headphones) - closed
    • Sennheiser HD 660 S- 150 Ohm (Open )

    and, about DACs
    • Audioquest A960 Dragonfly RED Converter D/A (the best)
    • Audiolab Bluetooth portable DAC (the best on-the-go)

    Most of the time, I attach everything to my iPhone, and that’s it.

    Yeah, but I'm pretty sure an open air headphone is the starting point for the best fidelity and feel. I believe Grado makes an in ear noise cancelling one, though I haven't looked I awhile and I know you're not looking for in ear. But if anyone is gonna make in ears that sound glorious, it's Grado.

    I can't say enough about Grado overall. Their headphones blow my mind.

    They're fantastic for at home listening in a quiet room in solitude. Certainly they have fantastic sound!

    Best noise canceling headphones out there for the money.

    Beats are $10 chinese headphones with $200 worth of branding and literally have metal weights shoved in there to make them feel high quality.

    I really love mine. I love clarity. And they bring you clarity as good as any other headphone.

    Xcacel, you love your Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 Ohm? I am thinking of making that my next purchase. Need something a step up for my closed back headphone. Yes, I dig my ATH-M50Xs but they are pretty worn/uncomfortable and I'm looking for something a couple steps up.

    I had the AudioTechnica ATH-M50x before, and I also found those pretty uncomfortable. So, when I saw Carter & Dave on the WH, in November, I realized that Carter was wearing the Beyerdynamic, and I started being curious.
    Finally I got them (they are not so expensive, at the end), and I am super happy: sound quality is amazing (I love their deep sound, all around you.. even more than the Sennheiser) and they are very comfortable. The only thing is that they warm you a little bit, after a while (2 hours). They are very solid (unlike the Sennheiser) and I also love the design.
    Just another level compared to the bulky, cheap, plastic-made AudioTechnica.
    There was a reason why Carter choose them

    Great to hear you love the Beyerdynamic, those are definitely on my short list of what to buy next.
