Are their headphones generally pretty good? Seems like their prices at Amazon are really good. What headphones of their's would be good for use with MP3 player/Laptop and I generally listen to Rock. I also don't want to get an Amp into the situation.

Generally, yes AT makes good headphones. Are you looking to use them portably? What is your budget?

A good all arounder is the ATH-A500. Maybe start your search there.

A900 if you aren't going for a portable setup. They are large, comfortable, have pretty good sound, easy to drive, well-suited for rock.

i absolutely love my A500, good value for money and is the most comfortable headphone I've ever used. The others 'r grados so that isnt that hard xD

I would look at Grados, or for a better all around use, the AT. Definitely not Senn.

If you want something more portable than the A series look at the ATH-ES5 or ATH-ES7.

im curious, how do their portable series (ES7) compare to the audiophile series (A500,700,900)?

I can only comment on ES7 v.s. A900... the ones I have.

On a technical level not very well... they definitely don't have the soundstage or resolution, etc. But ES7 isn't put to shame either.. it's still very enjoyable to listen to by comparison and has the AT signature of tipped upper mids.

Thanks, I think I'm going to look more into the ATH-A500 they seem to be reasonably priced and what I want. I'll still check this if anyone has any other suggestions. Thanks a lot!

I have yet to try AT, but I can assure you HD485 rocks.

Not for rock, it doesn't.

Thank You.

One cannot start a post by saying, " I have never heard headphone a, but definitely buy headphone b, its better."

It's a known fact there are better house sounds for rock than Senn.

Order from some place like audiocubes or bluetin if you plan to get Audio Technicas; Amazon is expensive.

Your comprehension is lacking. I never said it was "better", I said it "rocks".
And where is this fact that my ears or the OP's ears will like something
better?
