Headphones for movies for about 200 bucks :-)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi. im new to this forum and i need advice and help.
Im interested in buying my first headphone and I would like to give about 200 dollars for a new one and not used.
I would like them to be closed and i would use them 80% movies and 20% music (lounge, chillout and jazz)
Can anyone recommend me a few?
Searching this forum I read good reviews for the shure srh840 and the senns 25hd 1 II and many others...
Unfortunetly I dont have the opportunity to go and test/hear these headphones or other headphones for that matter and thus have to read all your comments here and just try my luck..
Oh and before i forget, I have a Denon 3310 so i think i wont have a problem running them. or am i wrong?

thanks

Check Denon AH-D2000. 235$ on amazon
No, you won't have a problem with amplification.

Welcome to Head-Fi.

I love my D2000's with Jazz music. Definitely recommend them. I run mine from my computer so you definitely won't have a problem with them power wise. However, an amp never hurts down the line.
Also the HD25-1 is a good bet though they are on ear which was uncomfortable for me. If it hadn't been for that I would have bought them.

x3 on the d2000 they should mate well with your receiver and they have a nice soundstage for movies.

edit : the denon are very comfortable especially if you have a big head otherwise it can be too loose.

Well do the Denons work well with movies? thats what I mostly need.. Also most movies are 1,5-2 hours long. so I would like them to be comfortable and also I would like them to leak as little as possible.

I would imagine they would do well with movies as they have good all around sound and great bass. I'll test mine out later and see.
They are very comfortable. They do however leak a bit but it doesn't seem to bother my roommates too much. I think the J$ money pads may help with the isolation as they have a tighter fit but I can't say for sure.

If you want a headphone for watching movies and the occasional gaming, you should really research the HFI-780. That was my main propose for purchasing them. They sound nice, isolate very well and the S-Logic really works at that point. Also now comes with a shorter cable and a extension cable that stretches to 15ft.

Is HFI a well known headphone company? Im sorry but im a newbie to this..
also what about the shure and senss that i mentioned above. arent they good for movies?

HFI is a series name, the brand is Ultrasone
Yes, it's wll know in HP world.
I would probably choose between HFI780 or AH-D2000

Thanks...
but i have another question. Since i have a receiver and a good one. Why would i need an extra amp for the headphones?

HD-580s, or a pair of the mid/lower end AT Art series.
post #12 of 24
I'd suggest you can the AD700's for movies.

Sound better than everything I have for movies.

Yep... it gets bigger and bigger. I will also throw the HD555 into the mix for movies.

Ultrasone for movies. Don't even consider the D2000s without a serious setup.
