Hmm. Maybe I'll try out the Titanium versus my Xonar DG and see if I can notice a difference. If not, Amazon usually treats me really well in regards to returns.

I'd suggest the Audio Technica ATH-M50s headphones but that's about $160. Completely worth the extra $40 IMO.

I thought the m50s had a terrible sound stage

Brainwavz HM5. Rebranding of the Fischer Audio FA-003, get them at mp4nation.net.  It's gotten very good reviews.  Closed back, but apparently quite open. Give it a look

Hey guys, so following the guidelines and not starting a new thread, I was wondering what would be good headphones for me.

Although I don't mind having 2 headphones for different typestyles of music, one would be nice smily_headphones1.gif

 

I currently own the Q701 (properly burned in with 100+ hours of pink noise and a few others) and I find it too bright for me even after a few EQ adjustments (I feel like I lose sound quality that way though).

It fatigues my ears how treble sounds on violin solos with a few high notes on mid-high volume.

I'm still in the process thinking should I return these or not.

 

Anyways, here are a list of things that I would appreciate:

Budget: Preferably 200-400s, but can go to ~1k if necessary.

Clamping: Not too clamping, the less, the better. Well, as long as it feels comfortable.. and I think I have a relatively large head.

Soundstage: Not too important, but the larger, the better. I prefer sound quality/details over soundstage.

Bass: Does not have to be too present but I do want my cellos sound warm with (sub?)bass. The Q701 sounds okay but it could definitely be better.. 

Mids: Present?

Treble: Maybe I don't mind it being rolled off slightly.. I guess I'm very sensitive to bright headphones but don't want too colored of warm. Anyways, bright = no. spark = not interested. I want to use for prolong periods of time without fatigue.

Oh, and I hate sibilance.

 

I would like something that is not too unforgiving, would like to listen to spotify / youtube at times without hearing all the "s" or super bright trebles.

 

I listen to 90% classical, 10% hiphop.

 

Any recommendations please? Thank you! dt880smile.png

Thank you for the recommendation. I'll see if I can check that one out somewhere.

I'm also leaning toward CAL! right now. Although I can't find it in local store anywhere.

It'd be better to order them off amazon!

Just addressing the comfort and isolation requirements, the Sony ZX700s and V6s isolate pretty well and are also pretty comfortable. Something like the AKG K81/181 will isolate a little more, but also clamp more and will be less comfortable. Maybe also look into the Brainwavz HM5, though it's slightly out of your price range.

hi, this is my first post here. i have always been into headphone, but mostly cheaper iem(cx300, klipsch s4, etc). i am looking for a pair of on ear hn neadphone. i really like the sennheiser adidas hd25, i tried it on once in store and fall in love with it, the look and the sound. but the price is alittle bit too much for me, so i read that Audio technica ws55 is also a great pair of on ear headphone and been getting really good review on it, and much cheaper than hd25 too. 

anyone know how is the ws55 compare to hd25? does the hd25 worth the extra 100-150$? i heard both of the headphone have good bass, and i love bass. would ws55 be an altrnative for hd25?

You can watch video reviews of both headphones on YouTube (which is very helpful IMO if you cannot try the headphones on in person). The Audio Technica WS55 Extra Bass headphones are probably going to produce more bass than the HD25's but, the HD25's have ample bass (tight) and a great soundstage which is lauded by many on these forums. Most would agree that the HD25's are worth way more than what they're priced right now but if Bass is an absolute must, you won't be dissapointed with the WS55's.

AKG K 240 Studio, Brainwavz HM5 or for a bit more Senn HD 518.

 

The problem is that you probably need to go a $50 to $120 higher to get to proper tier of mid-fi cans that would better meet your sonic goals  At level you get into the Senn HD 558 and AKG Q701.
