Shootout: 113 Portable Headphones Reviewed (Alpha Design Labs ADL H118 added 07/15/14) - Page 298

post #4456 of 4467

Hi!  I haven't visited this thread for quite some time.  However, I recalled that this shootout used to have models such as astro A50, beyerdynamic DT770, etc.  Am I wrong or are they removed for some reasons?  Thanks!

What would be a good choice for a VERY comfortable "open" on ear can for movies?

 

1) VERY comfy with low clamping pressure

 

2) Good(not excessive) bass and clear vocals

 

3) Budget $100

 

Thanks.

Thanks.

 

How about the Sennheiser PX-100? Lightweight and open with mild bass hump.

Ambiance : busses, trains, the homecar, at office! That means i am ok if i hear the engine of the car but i dont wan anyone else to be bothered. I like the look of

Audio thechnica t3000 sj11 or sj33,
Senheiser hd219(they are the only one in my contry from all hd for my budget),
Sony zx 100-600, v55(whit some extra money maybe?),
Philips Oneil and cityscape,Philips SHL5205PP,
Akg k511-518,
Koss UR22 Koss KC25.

I am a girl whit ball face and my hair is colored dark copper. Wear glasses an dont want my face sides to hurt from the pressure! http://open.spotify.com/track/47Fl0T52NvHkYaFbEOCW2Z

 

The AKG K518 will give a pretty satisfactory bass (it's essentially the same as the K81 but with different colour schemes if fashion matters), but it does tend to clamp harder so comfort might be an issue. The Sony V55 came to mind before I even read through your list. Philips Citiscape Uptown or ONeil should fit your music tastes and budget (I like the Downtown, but that's a more neutral sound).

Thanks. What amount of bass should I be looking at for movie cans? I'm not a basshead, I just want a nice sounding can.

It's however much you want honestly. I checked some of your other threads, and if you're powering them off an A/V receiver then you can just adjust bass on the receiver to taste.

 

Or if you ever get an amp, then find one with bass or other tone controls.

 

An unlikely option (though it's one I've personally used and liked) is to amp with a Focusrite VRMbox which lets you emulate speakers on your headphones, and in my experience pairs quite well with the PX100.

Thanks. Are the Grado SR60e and SR80e good choices for movies? They would be powered by my A/V receiver.

post #4464 of 4467

I would not pick a Grado for movies.

 

Seriously, if you're looking for an open on-ear mildly bassy headphone at <$100, the PX-100 is probably your best fit. If you can stretch the budget a tiny bit, the HD239 is worth considering.

I am having JVC Ha-S500 , and would want to upgrade.
I want the similar sound signature,

Will ATH M50 suit me, im very sensitive to too bright treble, or harsh or fatiguing highs.

I want more sub bass > mid bass

Mids > treble

And wide soundstage.

How about beyer dynamic dt 770 pro, will it suit me.

Pls advice me,

I think the K420 is superior to the PX100, more clarity without sacrificing the low end. Only problem is that is very hard to find around nowadays. K430 and other closed models don't sound nearly as nice.

Panasonic HTF600 - Good

CAL! - AMAZING

JVC HA-S500 - bad, even with mods / EQing.  Not capable of detail.

Marley EM-JH020-MI - Terrible...until you mod / EQ them, to hell.  Then Very Good / Amazing

NVX XPT100 - UNFRIGGINBELIEVABLE

Koss KSC75 - Good for the price

NXG NX-HTDJ - Very Good

Koss KTXPRO1 - Good for the price (better than KSC75, terrible compared to NX-HTDJ)

 

Nothing compared to Joker though.  :P

 

 

EDIT:  The NX-HTDJ are cheaper on Ebay.

 

 

I got EM-JH020-MI for 10$.

 

I bought 3 pairs to have free shipping! lol

 

So it must be the best headphones for 10$ ???

I will try them as soon as it comes to my door!
