Blues & Jazz -- Best Headphones? - Page 2

post #16 of 36

great thread question,, im going to say ultrasone, but check out senny,, i dont have much senny experience,,, but i love some mississippi mud!

post #17 of 36

maybe try k340's, if you don't need the lowest octave or two of bass that is

post #18 of 36

IMHO the Senn 650's are great for jazz. Excellent range and intimate enough for small groups.

Sorry for hijack the thread and plz delete if necessary but:

 

- I'm Blues lover and recently I'm giving Jazz a shot. Which are the most easy listening Jazz artists/albums for me? Don't tell me it's Norah Jones

 

In every music type I listen to I'm always more about mainstream btw heart

For old Blues and Jazz I like the RS-1. For new Jazz productions the K-702.

Try calling Brooklyn again...I listen to mainly blues and jazz and vocals. My main headphone is Sr325is. They sound very dynamic and are terrific. I will likely go to RS1 in a few years.

For blues, my sweet sixteen Grado SR225's with a DIY pint Fallen Angel built specificly for Grados. Pure bliss!

AD900!

Silly-Honey,

 

Which jazz recording/artist?

 

Try some of these records as a start: http://www.scaruffi.com/jazz/best100.html

 

You can find a title and look at reviews to see if it is something you may like.

 

Regards,

I'll also throw in my vote for the K701. My favorite headphones and excellent for jazz and classical, great to use at home.

HD-600! Bob James has never sounded any better.

Great list I have never seen it beofre but it differs somewaht from all the other lists I have seen. So now I can get inspiration to buy some more CD's.

For jazz listening (which is what I listen to the most) and all other genres for that matter I use the AKG K400, and I find them really good, right now I'm enjoying "Song for my father" by The Horace Silver Quintet.

Jazztronic

Nils Petter Molvaer

Thank you guys!

 

Your recommendations are somewhat different from some lists I checked which put John Coltrane and Miles Davis on top

 

Going to YouTube now...

I would buy a used K240 which sounds very realistic with these genres.  I have been using a K240 M which can be found cheap on eBay.  Otherwise I really liked the K702 due to its incredible detail and luscious sound stage
