Closed headphone does soundstage matter much with hip hop I may also use them th gaming would the beyer dt770 sound, better than m80. Would the you recommend the 80 or 250 ohm version.

Hi there! I seek some advice, buying new headphones. :)

 

Well, I got screwed over with a brand new Denon d7000, so i'm sort of afraid paying so much on a pair of headphones that incase of a problem occurring nobody will help me, so first of all.. costumer service is really important to me (so please add a good online shop\site\dealer or whatever, I live in the middle east and you can't find good stores around).

Beside that, I'm looking for an open back phones, with a portable amp (i've heard Ray Samuels has some good quality amps).

 

I like listening mostly to Metal (power, prog, death, hard rock etc).

 

As for money, i guess i can set a hard budget of.. 1200+- dollars for the phones, and maybe 200+- for the amp, considering the fact that I will get butchered for the shipping prices, thats the best i can spend on these phones.

 

Thanks for the replies. :)

I have about 400 USD amazon credit so I prefer from buying from amazon.

I play videogames on my computer, I enjoy listening to music and I would like to have some type of bass that give is noticeable. I listen to a lot of Rock, Classic, sometimes Pop music. I also prefer the headphones to not be ugly like the Beyerdynamics thanks!

Where are you going to be using these headphones? Also, will you be rooming with other people? If you're thinking about using them out and about, an open back headphone is a poor idea because they leak a lot of sound.

i would prefer a headphone that has bass in it but not a lot. just enough. a punch and some feeling to it but not bloated or crazy. it's there when it needs to be and gone when it's not necessary. i'm a bit fond on treble and midrange. so i suppose i'm looking for a "neutral" headphone. i would also prefer it to have some isloation but not completely. open is not a deal breaker, but completely closed is. i have a DAC (HRT Streamer II), but if there is one i could use as an upgrade i am willing to make the change. 

 

my budget is $800. i'm looking forward to your suggestions.

Kevin645 You could look into the denon d2000 and fiio e10. That should be within your budget and they are available on amazon.

I am aware that open backs will be bad. That is why I prefer semi-open or closed 

post #14722 of 29490

V-Moda Crossfade LP2, Ultrasone PRO 750, HFI-2900, Audio Technica ATH-m50, PRO700MK2, AKG K550, Philips Fidelio LP, Citiscape Uptowns or should i just wait for the V-Moda M100?

 

Budget: 160-260$

So, closed back for sure then. I just wondering since you mentioned getting the HD598, which is an open can. In your price range there a lot of suggestions for the ATH-M50, HD25-1 II, M80, and SRH840. I have no experience with any of these, but I'm sure some more experienced members will second these. This will also leave with a nice budget for an amp left-over. As for finding an amp read up on the previously mention headphones, choose one, and learn what would be the best to be paired with each.

What headphones do you recommend for listening to hip hop and r&b on an ipod touch 4g within a $300 budget and no need for an amp?

I'm wondering if I should get the DT 770 Pro LE... I can get my hands on it for $80 which seems like a fantastic price.
Or the Pro700mk2ANV for $300.
Both are almost brand new.

Will they sound better with the Asus Xonar ST or the Creative X-FI Titanium HD? Which one do you guys reccomend for gaming?

Asus Xonar ST, creative will give you numerous headaches; plus the xonar has better spe s overall. The wideness of your soundstage will make more difference than either of the two soundcards.

Well, I heard the soundstage on the 598's is really good, so I think I will go with the Xonar ST.

GET THE DT 770 PRO NOW! That price is really good!

So I already ordered a Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250 which will be for my home use, but currently I'm looking for something that I can use on the go.  Portability and noise isolation would be nice, though honestly I'd consider anything under 100.  Also they must be pretty durable and can work with an ipod nano.  Currently the ones I'm looking at are:
 

AKG Acoustics K240 - $80
Koss PortaPro - $33 

Sony MDR-V6 - $77
Grado SR-60i - $79

Fostex T50RP - $84

Shure SRH-440 - $78

Music I listen to is pretty much all genres, but quite a bit have female vocals.  Reasons I'm considering the bigger headphones is because I might consider trying out modding later on.  Also I currently have no portable amp.  My preference is toward over ear rather then on ear, but the price tag of $33 vs everything else is kind of hard to just let slip by.  Also I live in Hawaii, so it limits a lot of online retailers, most of these prices are based off of Amazon.  Thanks for any input!


Right now I'm really leaning towards the KossPortaPro or the AKG K240.
