So I am looking for a new pair of headphones (over or on ear) and am having a hard time deciding. I want something stylish so the 2 options that have caught my eye are the ATH-ESW9a and the Senn HD598. Purely based on the 2 pairs I am leaning towards the HD598, but I am going to be out in these sometimes (library, airport, etc) so I need a pair that doesn't bleed too much.
I know the HD598's are open ear, so how bad is the bleeding from them?
I will take all other suggestions for a stylish pair that is under $250, these are just the 2 that caught my eye.
I listen to a wide range of music, but mostly acoustic, alt rock, indie, and classic rock.
Thanks in advance!
ESW9a or V-Moda M80/LP2
Could anybody suggest a headphones for my case.
I mostly listening to rock, alternative but sometimes jazz, the old records of jazz.
So I need the headphones that will present alternative quite agressivly but could provide the warm sound of old jazz at the same time (if this is possible).
I'm gonna listen music on ipod classic and nexus s all lossless.
Now I have bowers and wilkins p5 the ones from my avatar and it is closer to jazz rather than rock/alternative. So I d like to change it. Any advise is appreciated. Thanks!
Perhaps the Beyer DT1350
Sorry, I realized that I have been posting in the wrong thread. I am looking for headphones in the $150 range. I think I've narrowed it down to the Audio Technica M50 and the Denon AH-D1100. The most important factors to me are comfort and sound. I would like to be able to wear it for hours without discomfort, and I consider lighter clamps to be more comfortable. I listen to hard rock, metal, electronic, and some hip hop. Which one is better for me?
Both are good... I'd lean slightly more towards the D1100 for your genres.
So after looking and reading I have found a few headsets that look like they will do what I want. I don't need anything for audio production. I will just be using them for music and gaming, but I want something that will give me the best quality possible for around $100.
- Koss Pro DJ 100
- Sony MDR 7506
- Steelseries 5xB
- Shure SRH550DJ
Anyone have any advice on these? I don't know much about any of them and have had recommendations for all of these are different points. So some help would be awesome.
The Pro550 is a bit odd sounding to my ear. I'd go with the HFi580.
Ok please help me guys!!!
I want a Headphone (brand AKG) and it has to be priced: 50-180 € and I mostly listen to Hip-Hop and electronic kind of music (J Dilla), or something like dubstep or instrumental hiphop. Soo whitch one will someone recommend?
Oh and I first thought of the q701 but I heard they are not good for hiphop. is that right?
If you're sticking with AKG, then go for the AKG K181.
Hey I'm new to audiophilism(?) an am looking for my first pair of audiophile grade headphones :-) so here are the criteria I'm mainly looking for in the headphones;
good clarity in voice
separation in instruments
easy listening for long periods
I mainly listen to Rock, Folk, RnB, Hip-Hop (on occasion), Alternative
I have a Fiio E9/E7 combo connected via USB to my MBP
I have so far seen the Sennheiser HD650, Denon AH-D2000, AKG K701 and Beyerdynamic DT880 my price range is around £250 ($390) but would be willing to go up by a little bit £15 ($25) max.
Those are all solid choices. My overall vote would probably be the HD650.
