    Re: QOTW: Which headphones do you use?

    Sennheiser HD650 is my go to for home. Comfortable, detailed easy listening but still engaging sound. Lacks wow factor but that is what keeps everything so balanced.
    Also have:
    HD58x - little bit less power hungry so good it i want to use a little bluetooth amp instead of full JDS Atom. Not as warm as the 650, bass goes a bit lower.
    Shure SRH1540 - not sure why I bought these as they are rather pricey, very detailed but not so fun and sometimes tricky to get a good seal. Nice for checking out high quality recordings, though.
    Hifiman/Massdrop HE4XX: Picked up on sale the other week, quite a different sound and more open and energetic than the others, good for metal/guitars. Not the most comfortable so wouldn't use for long listening.
    Sennheiser HD598: First serious headphone and I still like using them for watching films/video as they are very light and comfortable whilst producing a good spacial sensation.

    Have Tin T2 and Shure SE215 earbuds, the latter doesn't get so much use cos they aren't the most comfortable but both sound good.

    Sennheiser HD598 SE for gaming and any sit down listening (which is rare these days) and just the apple earbuds for listening on the move which sound OK but are slightly uncomfortable to wear for long periods.

    Most of my listening is in the car these days.

    Just changed from a set of AKG K240DF to Beyerdynamic DT880. Sad to let the AKGs go but they were getting pretty ratty.

    Welcome to Hexus! How do you find the DT880s? I wasn't sure which was best 770/880/990 so I just went with the bigger number lol, safe in the knowledge that the BBC give 770s to their visiting artists (often).

    Re: QOTW: Which headphones do you use?

    Audeze Mobius.

    The difference between these and the Astro I also have is unreal. The Mobius is much better at 7.1 surround, clarity, volume and the 3D positional system thats built in is an absolute Gem for things like watching netflix or hearing footsteps coming whilst playing FPS shooters or stuff like DayZ.

    I'm really suprised that Hexus have not done a review of these headphones.
