lol the KCS75s are 'permanently discontinued.' so are the HD202s. What is your opinion on the HD203s? It has good reviews.
The Koss PortaPro are on sale but at double my budget. So it's either the HD202s purchased from another site or the 203s.
And you didn't comment on the Phillips SHL 5000s.... A friend's pair sounded pretty good. But I haven't ever used the HD series so no idea how they sound.
post #11778 of 29490
i haven't ever used HDs and so don't know how they measure up to the Phillips. I know Phillips is no audiophile brand but I'm no audiophile either, just beginning.

Hi everyone! I'm looking for some portable headphones and currently I'm looking at the Klipsch Image ONE, the ATH M50s, and the Skullcandy Aviators. Price budget, is as you might guess, is $150. I listen to lots of asian pop (pop), electronic, female vocalists, and some rock. I'll mostly be plugging them into my iPod Touch and my computer.

 

Thanks~

Hey everyone just looking for some help.

 

I'm looking at getting into audiophile and trying to see where I should start. My budget is about $300-$500 (hopefully this can include an amp). I mainly listen to hip-hop, reggae, spanish music, greek music, the list can go on on my genres but the majority is hip-hop and r&b. I want something that can give me clean sound. I want to use these in my office while working and stuff but I don't want to disrupt people so maybe closed is better? I don't listen so loud.

 

I love the look of Denons and the AKG Quincy Jones line and others simmiliar in looks.

 

Another question is currently I use an ipod shuffle. What are some better suggestions for a portable player?

post #11781 of 29490

I'm looking for headphones which would excel at:

- Monitoring my live singing/guitar mix

- Isolating sound of very nearby drums

 

What can you recommend to me?

Do you have a link to Jude's interviews? I don't think I have watched them all. Philips Fidelio, Parrot Zik, Amperior... any more he has covered? I've been over at Innerfidelity and reading about new cans from CES as well. Unfortunately I can't listen to any V-Modas before buying them here in Sweden. I think I am getting the TMA-1's with a remote and mic and then keeping an eye out for a sub USD 250 pair of Beats Pro showing up. Nad then waiting for a chance to try the Fidelios and Zik. Just making a plan for future headphones ;). What do you guys think of the TMA-1's for some singer-/songwriter and classical music? 

 


The interviews are all on Head-Fi's Youtube channel, so they're easy to find. I think the TMA-1s might be too dark for those genres. I still think you'd like the v-modas, and I doubt you'll ever see Beats Pro under $250 unless it's used or fake.

- I hate bass light phones

- big soundstage BUT no recessed mids

- non-fatigueing [sic] treble

- enough detail and seperation

 

Should be less than 300€ and should sound good without any amlification.

 

(maybe denon d2000?)

 

Thank you, sir!


Yeah, the D2000 sounds good, though you might be able to get some basic amplification within your budget as well, depending how much you're getting the D2000s for.

Yeah, i think that might work as well, but you might want to ask around for more impressions.

Shure's headphones (SRH840/940, etc) all have detachable cables, as do the Ultrasone Pro line, and the Sennheiser HD25-1.

I've never really heard of the 203s very much, but Amazon reviews seem positive. I say go for it, and if you're not satisfied, just get those Philips your friend has.

The M50 cable is a bit long for pure portable use. You could also include the Ultrasone HFI780s to your list, though I'm not sure how the cable is there. Also, if you can stretch your budget to $200 you could get the V-Moda M80s or the Sennheiser HD25-1, which are excellent portables.

Perhaps you  could get the Denon D2000 and a nice DAC/amp combo with that money, if you're concerned about disturbing people with your music. As far as portable DAPs go, you could get the Sansa Clip+ as a cheap option, or the Cowon J3 on the more expensive side, to give some examples.

Senn HD280, Beyer Cans for drummers (I forget the model numbers), IEMs (I think this would work the best).

post #11783 of 29490

D2000

HD600 (or HD650)

FA-003 (woodied)

Modified T50RP

Anything you suggest.


Please help me decide. I want something to extend on the atmosphere a song already has, bring it to life, something that is lively with some kick/oomph/meat if you know what I mean, just a bit of weight to the sound. I want to feel the dark space between notes. I want to feel the cymbals being hit. I want to feel the thud of the bass kick, as well as the rumble of sub-bass, but I don't want it seeping into the mids and making the music one big ****fest of blurry sound.

TBH, all of your choices sound good, though the D2000 might give you the most deep bass. Other than that, I think it's a matter of examining your amplification, usage scenarios, and personal preference.

thanks for you're input. so I guess its TF10 vs GR07 for me and both of them works for my budget. can you please explain whats their main differences pros and cons and which is better for me? btw what you think of the shure 315?

Are the Beats Mixr's any good? And if so, how do they compare to the Denon AH-D1100's?

post #11788 of 29490

Hey there :)

 

I have started my passion with music since beginning of 2012 and I decided to but nice headphones for use in my house and outdoor.

 

I am using FL Studio if it matters. I have got crap speakers and just motherboard sound card but I am going to upgrade it soon to Alesis iO2 :) LINK: http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/19510165/Alesis-io2-Express-24bit-USB-Recording-Interface/Product.html?_%24ja=tsid:11518%7Ccat:19510165%7Cprd:19510165

 

then after I want to buy headphones. There are examples what I have found:

 

Can you tell which one is the best or give me different example of headphones in that price range?

 

http://www.iheadphones.co.uk/ultrasone-hfi-2200.html

 

http://www.iheadphones.co.uk/beyerdynamic-dt880-32.html

 

http://www.iheadphones.co.uk/ultrasone-hfi-2400-headphones.html

 

http://www.iheadphones.co.uk/sennheiser-hd598.html

 

Is any of these any good? :)

 

And another question, is it worth to buy an extra amplifier for headphones like this? For home use and outdoor use as well so it should be portable as well. For example FiiO E7, E11 or even E17? Or maybe E10 for home use only.

 

Thanks for your answers :)

Th GR07 tends towards more neutral, while the TF10 has a very prominent V-curve that gives it a "fun" sound signature. The TF10 has a reputation of being hard to fit, while the GR07 is fairly comfortable. The Shures tend to be more mid-centric, at least from what I've heard. Maybe ask in the TF10 or GR07 appreciation threads for more comparative impressions.

That's the first I've heard of them, but given the track record of other Beats models I've heard and heard of, they're probably not that good, so I'd go with the Denons.

What price range is this exactly? For all-around sound, I'd go with the HD598s, but if you'd like more bass, maybe the Ultrasones would be better. For amping, I think the E17s will give you a nice balance of function and portability.

Since you were looking at the Beats, I'll assume you want closed headphones, which are better for use outside, out and about, and in public. Check out the Denon D2000s, Ultrasone HFI780s, V-Moda LP2s, Senn HD25-1s, Phiaton MS400s, and V-Moda M80s. They're all fairly stylish, and the sound sigs might work for your hiphop.
