@trevor I’ve only ever heard the 250. Reviews indicate that the others aren’t THAT different. The 250 requires an amp. Schiit Magni’s great.

@invisibledork If you’re sensitive to harsh treble, I’d investigate the M4U and HP50.

@invisibledork I agree that they *are* a bit harsh on highs, but they’re also a great value.

@wpbasti Yeah, Beyer’s “half-open” thing is pretty misleading. I’d call the 880’s “open".
13h in reply to wpbasti               
Marco Arment @marcoarment
@wpbasti I like many of them a lot, but they don’t address the portable-closed category well. Their open headphones are usually great.
