The Audeze EL-8 comes as either an open back or closed back headphone – whichever you decide on you will be impressed! Behind the great looks and build quality of these cans is amazing sound. Very natural and effortless – you’ll be hard pressed to find headphones this good for the price.
Sennheiser really got everything right with the HD800. These headphones seem like they have come back from the future – with their lightweight space age design, extreme comfort, super soundstage and high resolution sound – it’s no wonder why these headphones are still flying out the door.
OPPOs flagship open back headphone really is something special. Before you even get to the headphones, the presentation box gives you an idea of the quality you can expect. The PM1 is a true hifi headphone – thanks to their planar magnetic drivers, they have the perfect amount of warmth, richness and detail.
These open backed monsters are the ultimate headphone. Everything about them is massive – their drivers, earpads, sound quality and even the bullet proof carry case. They do have a bit of weight to them, but that just adds to the experience the lcd-3 delivers.
