post #12586 of 29490

Hi guys! Which of these 2 are the best headphones for listening to music? (Paramore, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Evanescence)

 

>Shure SRH750 ($90)

>Audio-Technica ATHM40FS ($55)

 

I would be keeping these at home and want the best comfort, also its gets hot here in summer so one with the least warmness after few hours of use I guess.

 

If there are any better ones, mind suggesting them? Must be 100$

 

Thanks in advance!

I've heard the Shures can be pretty uncomfortable, don't know about the M40s. The common recommendations for sub-$100 are the Creative Aurvana Live and Koss DJ100.

Sony MDR-V6 are purported to be a pretty solid contender in that range as well, worth checking out.

If you've isolated a specific headphone, you'll get more helpful advice asking on a dedicated thread. The only thing I know about these is that they're made by Grado, and generally share the sound signature.

What about? They have a generally v-shaped signature and use Ultrasone's exclusive s-logic soundstage technology, which they claim makes the sound more natural. Some people like it, some people say it messes up positioning.

I'm currently using MS-1i --> E11 --> iPod Classic. Seems people are right about the brightness of this 'phones, been thinking of upgrading/changing sound sig. Is the HD650 worthy of the upgrade? I prefer going away from the sound sig of the Grados. Is there any better recommendations for the same price range of the HD650s? 

 

Thank you.

Will you still be using the rest of that portable rig? I doubt the E11 will drive the 650s properly, though it does seem to have the sound you're looking for.

Oh okay. Thanks for the prompt reply. I tried them yesterday with my portable rig, seems fine, unless I'm missing something? Tried comparing them to the HP-P1, obviously it is better because of the DAC, and i liked the wider soundstage, but the only thing keeping me from buying is the price. Is there a cheaper or better alternative to the HP-P1s?

 

Thanks again.

Wow those actually look pretty nice. Thanks! I think ill get the Aurvana, looks so cool, and a lot of review saying it has great comfort.

Well, if you think they sound nice. It's just that everything I've read seems to indicate they need more serious amping to sound their best. Also, as open cans they won't be great for portable use, but I see you've already been using the Alessandros...

Fahhhhhkkkk me. I just snapped my second pair of headphones in 2 months. First the Shure SHR-840s, now my Nixon RPMs. Just taking them off my head casually and the plastic near the metal joint snapped. Super glued what i could, but now they kinda leak due to the angle the snap was in. They were always too tight anyways so I wanted a new headset.

 

So... now - looking for some new headphones. I'm running sound through my Asus STX soundcard. I listen to a lot of everything and don't want to constantly switch headsets. I'm not an audiofile so I don't care about perfect sound. What's most important to me is gaming, so a headset with a good sound stage that lets me know what direction gun shots, footsteps and explosions are coming from is very important!

 

Any suggestions would be loved.

1st Post Here.

 

I'm looking for some on-ear headphones but I can live with over-the-ear headphones as well.

My budget cannot exceed $175. I refuse to buy an Beats that are severely overpriced and are none better than some $20 skullcandys,

I do however like the portability of the Beats Solo headphones [they suck @$$ quality wise, and are cheaply made]

I am a college student who commutes and I need headphones for my laptop and ipod.

I do not make music or produce music. I am purely an music enthusiast.

The type of music I listen to : Orchestral [40%] RB [20%] Rock [20%] (Rap, Hiphop, Country, etc) [20%]

I do travel alot and tend to beat up my headphones so durability is so what a concern. I do not prefer excess bulk.

 

I want some thing that has the best audio quality [one that can hit from low to high] for at around the price range of $175.

I need something that is somewhat comfortable.

I need headphones that are definitely portable.

I need something that is built sturdy and pretty durable.

The visual appeal does not have to be great as long as it serves it purpose.

 

Right now the only thing I can think of buying is the  V-MODA Crossfade M-80 or V-MODA Crossfade LP

 

Please make some suggestions for me. I'm only looking to buy via Amazon or Ebay.

Thank you.

I love hd 650 everything they do just the right for my taste but the only con is it's open design. I'm looking for a closed can to use portable that can offer the same or at least similar to hd 650 in the price range up to 700 aud. Can someone recommend some cans ?

 

Thanks in advance :)
