post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ì`m loocking for closed cans up to 150dollars that suits the Hornet.
Because a lot of traveling, good closed cans is important to me.

Any sugestions here peoples?

Have you considered IEMs? For traveling they're hard to beat. Better isolation, nice and small...

I have used a few different closed headphone with my Hornet, and so far am most pleased with the sound of my AKG K271S. While the K271S is not a truly "portable" headphone, it's nice and light, attenuates outside noise quite well, and is built to last. Also, the price for these in Europe tends to be much lower than in the States.

Thanks folks!

What about AKG K171s?



They looks very nice and it`s say`d that they are very robust.

PS:
Maybee this is a theme for the headphone area...?

But you guys in here know a lot about headphones...so I try more here

I haven't listened to any AKG 'phones, but I know the Sony MDR-V6 is an awesome portable, durable, & comfortable closed can....and can be had for $70~80 from eBay stores.

I like 'em, but I actually like the sound quality of my $15 Koss KSC75 better for some reason -- think I'm more of a open can kinda person! The mids of the MDR seem kinda recessed, but the bass from V6 seems slightly more acurate. They both have their places for listening...can't wait 'til I get an amp to crank up that bass!

The V600 does not have recessed mids -- it's actually a rather good-sounding closed can, contrary to what some peeps think.
I use the V6 and V600 when I listen just using the headphone jack on my Panasonic portables. (When I just don't feel like "amping" sometimes for a short listen).
With amps I can use my Darth's or D2000. Out of your mentioned price range, of course, but the V6 and V600 give quite good sound for a fraction of the cost.

I don't have a Hornet but.....I am currently loving, along with many other members, the Equation Audio RP-21. It is a fine closed headphone.

ATH-ES7 ? There's been enough chatter on the forum that I just ordered a pair for travel use.
