I am going to buy my 1st headphone in coming few days.

 

I have saved up cash for 4 months now and therefore I want to get it right.

 

I am confused between ath m50 and dt770.

 

I love to listen to metal and I want a headphone which I can use while on long walks to my college and etc.

 

Also if I get dt770 do I need an amp? [was thinking of getting 80 ohm]

Please help !!

 

I was going to buy m50 but many said they are overrated bassy phones.

 

I loved dt770 for comfort and look but do they play metal well?

 

My favourite bands are . . 

 

slipknot

megadeth

metallica

amon amarath

cob

log

coldplay

linkin park

pink flyod

 

Please help me !!

 

Ty a lot !!

 

sorry for my poor english !!

 

I am tired of searching head fi forums with endless threads :(

Its confusing me further !!

Just help a poor soul out !!




Walking with the 770 in warm or hot weather would not be ideal in my view.

I will take care of that thanks for your concern :P

 

But are these headphones worth it for metal and rock ?

I have never tried the dt770, but heard that the mids are lacking, which is not great for rock and metal......

Well most open headphones will deliver a better sound quality than closed headphones, but if you want closed headphones, the Ultrasone DJ1 Pro is a good choice.

Audio Technica Pro700MK2 if you like bass...... Shure SRH840 are great too.... The ATH-M50 are good choice too.

I actually have the M50s and they are excellent headphones........ Other awesome choices are the Ultrasone Pro 550 and the Denon AH-D1100

I didn't choose the M50s over any headphones...... They are excellent headphones, for the price I paid for them (120 dollars.) For that price, it is hard to beat for their value. Now they charge over 150 dollars, and there are headphones for the same money that outperform them in every way (like the other headphones I mentioned) biggrin.gif

Hi all,
I got a question - what do you guys think of this combination:
Alessandro ms1i + bowl pads through a presonus firestudio mobile

Basically I'm considering getting a Grado.
I listen to mainly indie rock/Christian:
Hillsong united, john mark mcmillan, Mumford and sons, mgmt, city and colour, the killers, coldplay, and sometimes linkin park

Now, here's my history:
UE super.fi 5 pro - first real phones. LOVED IT!
Shure SRH840 - first real headphones. Was iffy about it at first as it wasn't forward sounding...the vocalist would sound like he was far away from me and blended into the soundscape of the instruments. GREAT separation and detail though! Didn't have those on the super-fi
M audio cx5 - first good studio monitors - LOVED IT! Great balance and detailed with nice bass extension

So now I'm wondering about the Grados. I know they have a forward presentation - something that I missed with the shures - but I also love balance (hence I got Alessandro's, not the standard Grado)
But now I'm wondering, is the ms1i the perfect compromise for me? I don't have $400 to spend for it...but I can probably save up for a 225i or and ms2 if I wait long enough
Or do you guys think the ms1i will be a good enough match for me?
The two alternative models are twice the price...I know the increase in quality won't be doubly as good - but they better be substantiallly and significantly better!

Thanks!

Hey i am new here, i have been researching headphones for a few days now. My budget is around $100-120. I am considering Grado but i dont like open headphones, i see countless of different recommendations but i cant decide, they will be for music/movies and some gaming. I was looking at the AD700s but they need an amp. I am looking for a good overall headphones without the need or recommendation of an amp Thanks

The Sony MDR-ZX700 is a pretty smoking headphone for its price point that may meet your criteria.  I'm no Sony fanboy, and say what you want about Sony, but they do make pretty darn good headphones.

I'm a high school student, starting university next year, and I'm looking to invest up to 150 (pre-tax) in a pair of headphones. I don't mind going a little above that limit, but not too much.

 

I listen to literally all kinds of music, from classical / jazz when I'm working to house / bass heavy music when I'm just loafting. I want some proper headphones that are versatile, but can still pump out some decent bass. I'd prefer if they were relatively portable - I will use them both in home and while traveling.

 

I need headphones that are comfortable and preferably not too heavy. I've been browsing the forums and seen that you guys are fans of the ATH-M50's, but I've also been recommended some other headphones. What do you think would be the best purchase for me?

 

I want only over-ear headphones, no IEM's. Also, they shouldn't be ridiculously ugly looking. I don't mind wired vs non-wired. If a pair of good, active noise cancelling headphones exists without comprimising the mids and high's too much, I'd love to give hear about them as well.

 

Below is a list of all the headphones I've been recommended / have heard good things about.

 

ATH-M50 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/tags-on-product/B000ULAP4U)

Ultrasone DJ1 Pro (http://www.amazon.ca/Ultrasone-DJ1-PRO-Professional-Headphones/dp/B00101TBB2)

Sennheiser HD555 (http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD555-Professional-Headphones-Channeling/dp/B0001FTVDQ)

Sennheiser HD595 (http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD595-Performance-Premiere-Headphones/dp/B0001FTVE0)

Sony ZX 700 (http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDRZX700-Outdoor-Headphones/dp/B004P150LY)

ATH-AN7CB (http://www.amazon.com/Technica-ATH-ANC7B-Noise-Cancelling-Closed-Back-Headphones/dp/B002HWJT1A)

ATH-PRO700MK2 (http://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i-AUD-ATHPRO700MK2-LIST?SRC=D0301DT0HAMS0000&utm_source=shopping&utm_medium=feed&)

Shure SRH840 (http://www.amazon.ca/Shure-SRH840-Professional-Monitoring-Earphones/dp/B002DP8IEK)

Sony PIIQ (http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDRPQ1-PIIQ-Headphones/dp/B003MG07KW)

Sony XB500 (http://store.sony.ca/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=100803&storeId=20153&langId=200&productId=8198552921665774402)

 

I know that is a huge list...that's why it is so tough for me to choose. With some of the pricier ones, I would probably buy a used pair (such as with the HD595) so that they still fall in my range. However, the fact that it is used would slightly lower it's standings in my opinion, because the warranty is probably out. However, let me know what you think.

 

I'd appreciate any feedback, and if you think that the best headphone set for my requirements isn't on this list at all, then I'd like to hear your opinion on your recommended pair (and maybe a link).

 

Thanks for your feedback!
