Since we don’t get a lot of threads, I figured I’d post this. I know some of you must have wired Headphones, DACS and, Amps. If not maybe this will give you some information to get in on it.
Wired Headphones can go into the $1000’s of Dollars. I have a few that retail for quite a bit, but since I shop for deals, I’ve never paid more than $400 for one.
My best headphone is my Hifiman HE6SE V2. The Headphone retails for $1799 but I got it on a huge clearance sale for $399. The Amp retails for $799 but I got it on a clearance sale for $288 (these were spectacular deals).

Next up is another Hifiman Headphone HE560 V4 with the HE6se V2 and Hifiman R2R DAC Amp. Again I got great deal on these.
Next up is a Sennheiser/Drop HE6XX. Its basically a rebranded HE650 and a reduced price, but not quality.
Lastly is a Sennheiser/Drop HD58X (a rebranded HE660S), Monorice M1070 and XDUOO MT-602 Hybrid Tube Amp.
Lastly the Balanced version of the above Amp - MT-604 with the Hifiman EF400 R2R DAC Amp.
I hope you found this interesting!
PS All the Headphones are Open Backs. Lastly if you look, good deals can be found.
