Hi - I am a proud owner of Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones, and I love them mainly because of the durability, fit, and versatility (both physically and audibly) of them. HOWEVER...

 

I am looking to upgrade from them now, I want something fresh, but a noticeable step up. The main points I need filled are:

  • Durability. They need to be at least as strong as the semi-metal/plastic build of the M50's.
  • Looks. It can't be ridicu-ugly, but it doesn't need to win awards either. Something that looks good/sleek is nice.
  • Overall Versatility. I listen to my music anywhere from on the bus, to at home, to in a library - good noise blocking and sound leakage is a must.

 

WILLING TO SPEND $400 TOTAL (Amp... etc. Included)

____________________________________________________________________________

 

SOUND WISE...

 

To help, I will list a few of the songs of each genre I listen to - so please help me out! I generally listen to them all, but the more examples I have for a genre, the more I listen to that music. (aka: 3>2>1 in order of importance) Thanks in advance!

 

(PS: I know that my songs may not fit your likes, but please try giving me an objective statement!)

 

 

Techno/Dance

 

Rock/Rock & Roll

 

Rock/Other

 

Classical/Orchestral

 

Jazz/Other

 

Acoustic

 

____________________________________________________________________________

 

OTHER INFO....

 

If the best recommendation for me is to get an amp with my purchase, then I'll do that - but please include the price of amp in the total! It will also need to be a portable amp, if any!

 

Thank you in advance for your help, Head-Fi!

I don't need a high-end headphones. For ex., I'm look at Shure SRH1840. How these for rock and instrumental music?

Which headphones you can advice me?

 The LCD-2 is $1,000 can.  Feel free to continue your quest, but I know of no can below $600 (the HE-500) that might even be competitive with (much less superior to) the sound of the Audeze.

I'm actually gonna go out on the limb and say you should get beat pros. Before you tell me off late me say that the pros aren't actually that bad. I think they have a similar sound signature as the m50's but better. I hope this helps.

.. On the one hand I feel like this is a joke - but on the other, I feel like you have hidden wisdom. 

 

Is there anyone that can back this up...?

I'd say look into Ultrasone Pro 750 + Fiio e17. Obviously a good idea to read reviews and take a listen yourself before you make a decision, but they seem like a viable option

post #15459 of 29491

I've got a friend that tends to listen to Trance, Dubstep and occasionally watch movies and play some web games as well as chat on Skype.

His music tends to be in the 96 - 128 bit range so that he can fit more on his iPod so I didn't want to him something too revealing.

 

My first instinct was to suggest him the new AiAiAi TMA-1 since it's readily avaiible everywhere. Then I though about the veil, the recessed mids and the chopped off treble and thought it would be too expensive for what it was. Plus, no headset.

 

Maybe the new Hesh 2.0? It's hip with the kids, cheap and has a built-in mic along with a lifetime warranty.

 

Ideally, I would forego the headset and give him either the Ultrasone HFI-580 or HFI-780. It would give him the high notes that his trance has and have some durability.

 

I rejected the Denon D2000 - too brittle and way too big for his uses. I thought maybe the Denon HP700 might be good but I haven't heard it.

 

If any of you were in my shoes, what would you recommend? I'm personally leaning towards the Hesh 2.0 or the Ultrasone HFI-580 but I'd like some more input on this matter.

Hello, I'm back again. If you don't remember, I said a week ago that I was set on some ms-2s. I still haven't had the chance to order them (financial reasons) and in the meantime, I've been on this forum all too often. If im able to get a pair of rs-2s (used) for about the price of the ms-2s, should I go for it? I listen to a wide variety of rock (pink floyd, radiohead, linkin park, metallica, nirvana, dragonforce, opeth [their lighter albums mainly], foo fighters, green day, phoenix, etc.). TBH, my main reason for leaning toward the rs-2s is the wood, which is supposedly lighter (i.e. More comfortable), and IMO, much better looking, but that's just being childish. How do they differ sonically?

The RS2i (unless you're getting an older version) is superior in every way except for slam of the music.  The 2 has greater frequency response, far better sound stage and improved clarity.  They have a very natural sound signature.  They are also very light in comparison to the MS-2.

Not a bass head. Need it to be closed, accurate, and balanced across frequencies. Except bass, as I doubt I would be mad about a lack of bass. Most headphones I have heard all have enough for me. Also a bass heavy set would be bad for spoken voice which makes up a decent amount of my listening. I was looking at the Shure SRH440, denon ah-d1100 etc so price is flexible but lower $$$ with better value is better obviously. Don't see myself spending over 250 though so suggestions above that price might not be so helpful. Currently own Ultimate Ears 700 and an old worn out pair of Senn 201's that will be replaced with this new set. I REALLY hate sibilance on sss sounds. Pet Peeve.

 It sounds like something mid-centric or neutral-ish is what would work best for you.  Some Sonys, Koss and a few more options immediately come to mind.  Will you be using an amp?

Hello there, I'm new to all this stuff and would like some help for finding the right headphone/headset for my personal use. For a budget of around $200 (+$50,-$50) I am currently trying to find a gaming headset/headphone (But a mic would be nice) for FPS games. Here is the thing, I usually play games ALONGSIDE with music. However the music is a different genre from the shooting and stuff.

I listen to Blues rock,Rock, Indie, Alternative, Rap/Hip-hop, Folk rock, and Pop. [Mostly Rock, Folk, Folk rock, Rap-Hiphop, and pop]
(Okay.... I listen to nearly everything.) (Soft relaxing music, is the word to sum everything up.)

I have no intentions to buy an AMP. I think that the "creative sound blaster chip" that came along with my motherboard is enough. (I think and hope)

Just to sum it up, nothing contains much of "Techno and other stuff"

 

I've been looking at the Sennheiser PC360 G4ME for a while, and it would be nice for someone to agree with the decision or recommend something that is better for the price range. Since all the music is "Mostly" going to be played alongside with gaming sessions I'm trying to find headphone/headsets that is good with that. (I broke 2 Siberia V2's in a span of 2 and a half years, if that will help [1 free from warranty] - I'll be more careful this time)

Thank you in advance, any help is much appreciated.
