Sony MDR-V55/BR DJ style Headphones

Basshead Bargain

Vero Golf Champ

Pros: Tight, punchy bass. Clarity. Sensitive. Resist distortion.

Cons: Limited soundstage. Cable doesn't detach.

Have had these for 3 months after losing a pair of Pioneer HDJ 500s. Preferred the look and build quality of the Pioneers, but the Sonys look ok and fold up nicely. The HDJ 500s didn't fold, but had one swivelling earcup and came with two detachable cables. From memory the Pioneers had a similar sound to the Sonys but with a bigger soundstage. Paid around the same for each (NZD $125) but the...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

“ (Disclaimer: This review was written while considering the very low price-point of the M50, and what you can get for that amount of money. It does not mean the M50 can go up against the high-end headphones that cost several hundred to thousands of dollars. My main headphones are high-end headphones, and the M50 is only used while I'm doing tracking or traveling. I wouldn't use it as my...” --Lunatique

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

“I've listenend to all the top offerings from Denon, Audeze, AKG, Hifiman, Ultrasone & Sennheiser and this is my personal favourite. It is a true reference class headphone that is very natural sounding, albeit leaning ever so slightly towards a darker tone. The sound is detailed, smooth and richly textured, especially drums come alive amazingly well. It has no problem spanning all the way...” --TwoEars

Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

“ REVIEW: Sennheiser HD 800Overview Reviewing a statement product is tough – especially one that was as highly anticipated as the HD800. There is already a huge buzz on head-fi about them, and many have already declared them the best dynamic headphone on the market. But most of these proclamations have been from owners, One potential difference between my listening to the HD800 and other...” --Skylab

Audeze LCD2 Planar Magnetic Headphones

Audeze LCD2 Planar Magnetic Headphones

“I felt extremely priveledged to be included in the first group of people to hear the long awaited and much anticipated release of Audeze's LCD2. Some history: I am not new to planar magnetic technology and have been an avid fan and disciple of planar magnetic headphones ever since I was lured into the murky waters by the vintage yamaha orthodynamic headphones. If not for the keen efforts of...” --dBel84

Sennheiser HD-598

Sennheiser HD-598

“Note: This is my first audiophile headphones so i can't compare them to any other headphones out there for the same price.   These headphones are well designed, fit your head perfectly and are extremely lightweight. They are made out of plastic but they don't look cheap. They are very solid in my opinion. You can wear these for a long session and never worry about them. This is the...” --revanxp

Sennheiser HD 600

“The Sennheiser HD600 is an open dynamic circumaural head-phone which Sennheiser market for audiophiles, and also state as ideal for studio monitoring.     Pre-amble (about me at time of writing) I'm a 44 year old music lover.  I don't say audiophile - just love my music.  Over the last couple of years, I have slowly changed from cheaper listening set-ups to my current...” --Brooko

V-MODA Crossfade M-80

“ So here's my first mini-review. Kinda late, but I like these so much that I had to write a review for them xD   Intro One of the reasons I bought the V-MODA M80 is because I wanted a portable headphone that has good SQ and yet has the ability to turn heads. I also wanted my portables to have very good build quality and decent isolation because I will be using them during travel....” --Kagelou

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

“ The HD25-1 has been my favorite (trans)portable headphone for quite a few months. I spend a few nights a week away from my home rig and the HD25 works wonders with my iBasso D10 and netbook. Hi-fi on the go has never been so rugged and simple. Best of all is their sonic versatility – though my backup portables, the AKG K181Dj, excel with certain genres and recordings, the Sennheisers perform...” --ljokerl

Sennheiser IE 8 In-Ear Headphones

“ I've been using Sennheiser IE8 for 2 years and its still awesome. sadly I lost it about 2 months ago. The first time I use it, it sounded ordinary but after several days of burning in I finally found the true sound that is so amazing. The sound is detailed, clean instrument separation, strong bass, and an awesome soundstage, and no microphonic... but after using it for a year I have to...” --QR2
