Good closed isolating phones for monitoring

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My brother is a sound guy at a little venue in these parts and is looking to buy a decent set of cans to help with work and also so he stops stealing my Denon D1001Ks. The only flaw we find with the Denon's for this purpose is they don't block quite enough sound. Want a similar around $100 pair of cans with good low end (not boom, just low enough to mix kick drums) and slightly better isolation. Just want the best sound with good low end reproduction and maybe an more analytical signature with some isolation.

Comfort, Affordablity, Decent Sound Cancelation, and a Nice Flat Response...


hm...

Sennheiser HD280 Pro sounds like it would do your brother well.

I will mention they do take some burning in. Give them 24 hours on some pink noise.

These phones aren't as 'in your face' musical as some people want...I have these phones and the clarity is the most remarkable part. You can hear the artists breath and smack their lips when they sing. Very detailed.

1. GMP 8.35 D Monitor.
2. M-50.
3. Ultrasone HFI-550/DJ1.

you want either an audio technica ath-m40fs or an akg k271, though the k271 might be over your budget

FWIR, I suggest the ATH-M50 for ~ $100.

On a budget...mdr-v6/7506 or 280 pro. FWIR, v6 will have better bass.
