1. You mentioned the Beats Studios, which are $300, and the DT880s are definitely better than those.
2. I was talking about the DT880 Pro (not the Premium) which Amazon apparently doesn't carry anymore. Those retail for $200-$220.
The DT990 Pro (250 ohm, should be used with an amp) is $185 on Amazon, and the 32 ohm Premium (doesn't necessarily need an amp) is $250.
Completely new to head-fi, but Ive been doing a ton of research on what pair of headphones I should get. I have not been able to narrow down the choices that much as everybody has different opinions, so I figured I'd post exactly what I want here and see if anyone can give me the best possible headphone for my liking.
What I'm looking for:
Price range preferrably $400 and below
No amp required to sound the best
Good strong bass, but clean
Not a fan of leakage, so closed back is probably best
Comfortable over a long period of time, so if I sit somewhere for 4 hours listening to music there is little to no ear fatigue
Not too sure what I want in terms of mids and highs as I am not that experienced with that, but a headphone that is clear and one where you can hear each sound differentiated and the way it should be heard
Overall, I just want the cleanest, strongest, most comfortable, and best headphones that stay within my price range.
Thanks in advance for the responses
Shure SRH-840, Fischer FA-003/Brainwavz HM5, Denon D2000.
It would be helpful to know your music preferences though - all three are good all-around performers, but the Shures are especially good with rock, the Fischers/Brainwavz are good for classical and vocals(?), and the D2000s excel with electronic.
