View Full Discussion Everything is changing and it is the era of wireless. For this price, I would say Hifiman Ananda-BT. I love it, the sound of Ananda is so nice. Actually it makes sense to get rid of wires and I have the freedom to move.
Most people in the audiophile world prefer wires, there is a reason many of the people buying 1000$+ headphones are willing to spend just as much on the wire, they don't want to get rid of wires, they want better wires.
U would need one heck of a good BT amp to power these properly.
Your comment doesnt make any sense. You say "for this price" but this is a 600 dollar headphone and the ananda-BT is 1000 dollars, nearly double the cost.
You also forget to account for a couple issues with bluetooth: You get no choice of amplifier. There is no replaceable battery so your headphones have a shelf life of about 2-3 years before the battery degrades to the point that its unusable. BT is useful commuting but these are INCREDIBLY open headphones that do absolutely nothing to isolate from the outside worlds.
For the ananda, there is no app. You cannot tell what codec it is using at any given time. So yeah, you are more than welcome to drop a grand on a headphone with an expiration date that you will probably listen to using SBC or AAC codec....
Also take a look at the actual driver and cup tuning included within each of these models. Find some side by side teardowns of them.
