Which Headphone ?

Ok so, I fancy getting a new set of cans, Currently all my headphones are powered off an SMSL M3 external DAC/AMP, Powers everything I have nicely, Just nice clean audio with no colouring although I will be replacing that with another more powerful external DAC/AMP in the next week or so, So it's not a problem.

My current collection is -

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohm

Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250 Ohm

Phillips Fidelio X2HR 30 Ohm *the new updated version*

Sennheiser HD650 300 Ohm

I also have the Corsair Void wireless headset which is surprisingly damn good and I use that the most simply because ease of use being wireless and all

My budget is £300, Any......input... ......is appreciated.

I have a few sets of headphones. My current favourite is the bowers and wilkins p7. I got them from the recertified store for 259 and they sound great. They definitely need a dac and high quality audio

If you fancy a change try those. They're almost half of the price they were and they sound fantastic. Closed back too, so much more private.

I want a set of B&W P7, just waiting for the right price

If you want something coloured, Massdrop's TH-00's are an awful lot of fun. I love the Mahogany's rich mids, and the Purple Hearts; which has more sparkle in the highs and a deeper sub-base, but loses in the upper and lower mids.

Hifiman HE 400i? Not sure because for the budget I think you already own one of the best you can with the HD650

Yeah he does. Thing is all headphones sound different and suit different types of music better. Well, that's my excuse any way

No it's not an excuse that's really just how it is! Some people like bass so different types of headphones suit them whereas some people like very critical/Analytical sounding headphones or ones that are super warm, etc etc. I mean even different DAC/Amps effect how they sound so it's all about the right combination

I picked mine up for 220 in the B and W sale. Now they are worn in the sound is incredible. For closed back headphones they really are good.

I have tested them through a number of sources. I have a pretty good DAC/ headphone amp that shows the flaws in most headphones Alpha design labs espirit
