Since I am stuck at home, started to download more high res music, and spending a lot more time in my office… as my wife is pregnant and can’t handle loud music in the living room… which is pushing me to getting a headphone (specially since with the baby, listening to music would be impossible).
I am also unemployed now due to Corona virus, so will be selling some items I no longer need to fund this, which probably affords me around $500 for a headphone.
So, having the background out of the way, what do you guys think/like? I had a Sennheiser HD600 for sometime, which was great but NOT too exciting to listen to. I am now thinking of either getting a Massdrop HD6xx, which essentially would be the same HD600 I had, OR, to spend more and get the Focal Elex headphone which has had great reviews AND I LOVED how the various similar Focal headphones sounded at AXPONA and they have amazing build quality. I even preferred their sound to HD800S. Other benefit of Focal Elex is that it’s relatively easy to drive being only 80 ohm headphone.
Any ideas? Other options?
