headphone recommendations for Aune amp

I just recently snagged an aune x7s and it's a class a amp. It seems to have a warmer tone and rather high impedance. I was wondering if anybody has any good closed headphone suggestions that would have good synergy pairing with this amp?

Are you looking for something that is more neutral in sound signature?

What's your budget? I'm not much of a closed-back listener, but my experience is that what you're willing to spend on closed-back headphones has a much greater impact on quality when compared to shopping for open-back.

Idk prob around 200 or so. Ebay is an option and I have had good luck snagging deals there on normally way more expensive things. The headphones I have are already warmish sounding and pretty low ohm so they end up a bit overly so at times on this amp.

beyer dt770 250 or 600ohm, a bit brighter livelier headphone. Beyer makes a few other closed hogher impedance models.

Sennheiser hd250iis are 300ohm but might be tough to find and tough to find for cheap

zmf headphones are higher impedance but expensive...

Meze 99 classics and akg k550/k553s are vn closed hesdphones but lower impedance. could sound fine though.

You might want to try the latest PLANAR MAGNETIC Headphone technology....similar to Electrostatic technology, a very light Mylar Diaphragm [with a Voice Coil "printed" on it] is supported in-between an array of magnets, providing very low distortion, extremely fast transient response, flat frequency response (hence good imaging) and very flat Impedance Load. Most Audiophile Quality Headphones are Open Back, so there are only a few available with Closed Back in ANY price range:
https://www.amazon.com/HIFIMAN-Close.../dp/B01DZQT9UM [18-ohm, Open OR Closed Back, Edition S]
https://www.amazon.com/Monolith-M560.../dp/B01MSH781C [42-ohm, Closed Back]
https://www.amazon.com/Monolith-M106.../dp/B079YZF9YS [18-ohm, Closed Back]
For more info re P-M Technology, see my earlier post on this same subject:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/378-h...l#post57756180

Specs for Aune X7S Headphone Amp do NOT say what Max/Min Impedance limits might be....perhaps it's in your copy of their "Electronic Manual"....but all of the P-M headphones listed above should be well within optimal operating limits:

1000mw at 32 ohm 250mw at 300 ohm or 1700mw 32ohm xlr 1000mw 300ohm xlr.. so over 300 would prob need xlr mod to get enough power.

I have been tempted on dt770 250 ohm headphones but they apparently have a super bright peak in treble and little midrange...

yup, bright and piercing, you can eq em down a bit with equalizerapo if you're using a windows pc, or stick an analog graphic equalizer in front of the headphone amplifier.

I suppose the extent of that depends on your ears. I've always liked the sound of Beyer's headphones, across all price ranges. For your price range, I think you should give the DT 770 a try.
