Hello mates,
I am planning to upgrade my headphones for fiio x5 iii.
Earlier was using AT ATH m 50 x and beyerdynamic Custom one pro with it without any amp or dac.
Budget for new HPs around 30k
Love detailing in music.
Don't want to complecate setup with additional amp or dac. HPs shd be able to directly drven from fiio x5.
Was looking for sennheiser Hd 650 or hifiman he 400i.
But hd650 300 ohms.
Confused. Plz guide.
Or suggest any other HP in above mentioned price range which will sing well with fiio x5 iii.
It should be available in india as not planning importing or hand carrying frm abroad.
Thanks and regards
Tigerwag.

Fiio X5iii is quite neutral DAP so most of the Headphones will work with it. I am currently using it with HD800, HE500, Symphones Magnums v4. At my normal listening level for HD800/HE500, I need to raise volume level upto 100-110 out of 120 steps, so I believe HD650 should be something similar.
Other HPs to consider: Audeze Sine, HE560, Audio Technica A1000z
