I’m relatively new to this hobby, I have some headphones, but recently started to dig deeper into this.
For reference I have the following cans:
Fostex T50RP (slightly modded, pads changed)
Hyperx Cloud Orbit (Audeze Mobius minus BT and head tracking)
Takstar HI2050 (pads changed)
Superlux HD681 (pads changed)
Koss UR40 (pads changed)
Taotronics Soundsurge 46 (for the NC)
plus a couple of IEMs, TWS earbuds
Right now I’m looking for an open back large planar as a next step. I’m about to get a Monoprice open back planar headphone, but it’s hard to decide between the following 3 options:
1060 (194 EUR)
1060C (to be opened) (220 EUR)
1070 (288 EUR)
I’m not afraid to mod any of them
I know that Monoprice is very polarizing, but I’d like to give them a try.
Your suggestions are highly appreciated!
Ps.: I’m in Europe, so no access to good price to value ratio audio gear like in the USA. Also, no Drop, or affordable Hifiman (4XX, 400i, etc) available (only with crazy additional costs that make financially non viable)
