Have a question for all beyerdynamics experts. Looking for a good pair of headphones in price range up to 300€ (360$). I almost came to decision of buying Proline 750 or 2500, but now I noticed that some 32ohm's versions of 880/990 came out. I never had headphones for more that 50€, lately I only use my speakers Logitech Z-2200, but as I do a lot of composing and I don't want to buy monitors I decided to go with a good pair of headphones.
My question is, (and remember, I have no experience in using headphones) what would be the best choice for composing and maybe producing music from beyerdynamics?
I was looking at DT990 32ohm, but am not shure if maybe for 100€ I could get AKG 271 and I would probably be happy, happy, happy. From 271 I got to Proline 750, but now I'm not shure any more. Could someone explain how DT990 32ohm sounds (I will be driving them from Focusrite Saffire - no external amp) compared to AKG 271 or maybe 701 and Proline 750?
As I'm a nooby I would really like to know what is the mayor difference of an open/closed headphones expect that open ones can be heard arround you. Is the sound quality of the open ones really that better over closed ones?
Thank you all for helping me out ...
I've been reading this forum for a couple of weeks, a few hours a day, using search and I totally agree. Its fun and educational. But after all this time spent on the forum, I'm just so confused ... so much good reviews of different headphones. Beyerdynamics, Sennheiser, Akg, Ultrasone ... Ofcourse before head-fi I knew nothing about hi-class headphones, now I know something, but it's almost impossible to choose... damn :-) ... I wish It would be simple as that 100€ the best is ... 200€ the best is ... and so on ... but at the same price range there are just so many headphones. Some are good for this, some for that, same are good with amp, sounds bad without an amp ...
Well, just had to write all this out .. hehe (sorry for that)
I'll go on with the holly quest of finding the "ultimate" headphones ...
Sorry, forgot to mention, I posted a question about best music production headphones and I came to this conclusion:
The only headphones to drive without an amp would be AKG271, Proline 750/2500, Beyerdynamics 880/990 32ohm.
So for now, I'm stuck here. From those I would choose Proline750, so I guess I'm just looking for the last confirmation of that beeing the right choice.
