post #15301 of 29490

Hello all, I've recently been looking for pair oh headphones that would be ideally used for listening to trance,house and uplifting and gaming.

 

I've been looking at mainly the Beyerdynamic DT 880 600ohm's and the audio technica AD 700's. Looking for something with decent base but would really prefer open-full size over anything. I've been looking around, but can't find many places in Australia that sell beyerdynamic's, so i would probably have to get them shipped from US or something by amazon. 

 

TLDR; Recommendations that would be awesome for listening to trance + playing games as well

@sydarnell

 

I'm going to recommend you check into a pair of JVC HA-RX700's which can be had for ~$30 on Amazon.com. The HA-RX700's are incredibly durable, have exceptional build quality for the price, and sound excellent. The phones are fairly flat and are great for listening to Rap, Rock, Electric, Jazz, Classical, ect. JVC also makes a HA-RX900 for around $50, but I have no experience with those headphones.

Guys,

 

I think I really need a straight not coiled cord. I also need comfort for big ears and a neutral to warmish (hate shrill highs) sig.

 

Mostly country music, some old school disco/funk, some smooth jazz, Krall, etc.

 

Candidates:

 

ATH-M50

 

Sony V6

 

Sony 7506

 

 

Budget ~ $100.

 

thx,

 

bob

Hello everyone, new member and first post.  There's not much I enjoy more than a good set of headphones.  Years ago, I was constantly buying new ones trying to find something I liked to no avail, then I did a little research and purchased a set of sennheisers.  I don't remember the model number, but they were not full size headphones.  These were great and lasted me a while, but sadly they took a @#$% and since then I have gone back to my old ways searching for a good pair of headphones.  I have always wanted a set of good over the ear headphones, so that is what I am looking to buy.  I would prefer to spend around the $150 range, but I am flexible.  I mainly use them commutin on the train to work and traveling and of course at home as well.  I listen to music off of my Nokia Lumia 900 and my computer.  I listen to a pretty wide array of music, so they would need to be pretty good all around and not specific to one style.  The only genre I rarely if ever listen to is country, I just can't get into it.  If it helps a few of my favorite groups are:

Deftones

Korn

Gorillaz

Rage against the machine

Led Zepplin

311

CCR

EPMD

Toadies

Tool

AC/DC

Eric Clapton

Guns n Roses

Beastie Boys

(Hed) PE

 

.....and so on, but I hope that helps and that's about it.  I would greatly appreciate any input from you all and thanks in advance =]

Hello guys!  I'm looking for advice on buying an open headphones to listen to classical music (FLAC 16-bit and 24-bit) in a laptop computer with a HRT HeadStreamer USB-powered Headphone DAC/Amplifier attached.

As far as my budget goes, it would have to be either one of these three:

 

1-) Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Open Studio Headphones 250 Ohms

 

2-) Grado SR 225i Prestige Series Headphones

 

3-) Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones

 

Which one would be your choice?

 

Thank you

I didn't like them, they sounded quite colored to me.

post #15309 of 29490

Ok i have asked around here in a few threads, and even started my own thread and have gotten very very few answers, so i will try here.  Im a noobie to the headphone scene, with that said here is what im looking for.  I want a good all around full size headphone, open or closed dont matter to much, im not trying to block outside sound to much.

 

I listen Stones, Zepplin, Blondie, Plimsouls, Cars, etc, i also watch alot of blu ray movies, i have a X-FI Titanium HD soundcard builit into my computer along with a blu ray player.  Im not a bass head by anymeans, i do like bass, but i dont want it thumping my brain side to side, but i do want to hear it.  So i want a good all around headphone, i have had a few recommendations, Denon 2000, Ultrasone hfi 2400.  I have done some research on my own and have came up with the AKG K555, Denon 2000, but im open to suggestions, whatever i get must sound clean and work for music and movies.  So shoot me out some models you guys think will work for no higher than $300.

 

I would prefer that you have heard the cans your going to recommend me, and thanks for all your time and opinions.

Hey,

 

so, im looking for very distinctive sounding headphones. I enjoy great bass (both sub bass and the thump) and a lot of it, but i never like them muddy or overpowering any other freq's. They can be boomy, sure, its fun, but only to a certain extent, hope you guys know what i mean. clear sound with fun bass is my call :) since i like electronic music, hip hop etc, but im no stranger to classical and rock genres too.. soo all rounders :D

 

and other things are just as follows:

sensitivity !!!!! I need high sensitivity headphones, so they can be easily driven by my phone

comfortability, i wear glasses and ive never had anything else besides iem's, so im still planning to go to a local place and try some cans out

at least reasonable isolation

good build quality is always a plus

would be perfect if they had detachable cables ... :)

 

oh, and the price.. well, i guess i can shell out up to 150$ ? well, definitely looking for something on the cheap side.

 

thanks for the advice, should i receive any ^^

M50 normally will cost you around $130 to $150 shipped.  If you're going to spend that much, go with the Shure SRH 840.  The 7506 is more neutral and the better choice on your list for your genres.

They are all good but quite different from one another.  What sound signature do you prefer?

Open will generally give you a better sound stage.  The AKG Q 701 is an excellent choice.  You might also like the Senn HD 598.

post #15314 of 29490

Alright so I am looking for a pair of headphones that don't leak a lot, and are easy to drive. I have looked at the following:

 

Audio Technica ATH M35

 

Sennheiser HD219

 

Koss DJ Pro 100

 

Monoprice 8323

 

My budget is $60, and I am mainly looking to use them on a laptop or an ipod for portable use.

post #15315 of 29490

Thanks for the recommendations, i heard the HD 598s so good, but the car interior look of them isnt for me, it may grab some people but i dont like the looks of them.  I will look at the AKG Q 701.  Any others i should check into ???
