Best High-Impedance Headphones

more_vert
Looking for a amazing pair of high-impedance headphones, preferably 600 ohms. Was looking at DT990 600 Ohms or the Sennheiser HD800 but looking for alternatives. I have the Schiit Valhalla 2 Amp and the Schiit Biforst Multibit for powering the headphones.

I have the same rig. T1s sound great as Valhalla is good at mellowing out the brighter cans. HD650 pair well too, though I think they're 300 ohm. It comes down to taste, though.

What type of sound you looking for?
HD800 are great but some find they have too much treble and not enough bass. The Beyerdynamic T1 is in the same boat can be a little bright but has more bass. I like options like the AKG K240M which is the 600ohm version.
Never heard the DT990 but have owned the 770 and 1770 both have great bass and I really liked the sound for a closed pair of headphones.
Looking for a more bass heavy set but I'll settle for any 600 ohm headphones, just trying find the best one from the community.

Not sure I know of any other bass heavy 600ohm headphones, from the 600ohm headphones I have used they tend to be smooth compared to some of the lower ohm headphones it comes down to how easy the headphone is to drive really. If you want bass and high ohms I think the DT770 or DT1770 would be your best options at 250ohms or 600ohms for the DT770 premium.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
