Any other closed headphones? I don't want to disturb others otherwise I would consider the Sennheiser offerings!

 

As far as closed headphones go the 770 would be my recommendation for gaming. I use mine for video games quite a bit and I really like them. But there might be some other closed headphones in Mad Lust Envy's gaming headphone guide that you could look into:

I am looking for a recommendation on a pair of full-size portable head phones, to use on the tube between work.

 

I have some DT880s 600ohn for home, which are fantastic, but they seem impractical to take on the tube for various reasons.

 

So - best portable headphones for £200 or less?

 

All suggestions appreciated

Just to add - listen to all music genres and would need to be closed as I travel on the tube, no one likes the guy with loud headphones.

I know the main companies like sure, ultrasound, audio technica, and sennheiser, but not many specific models.

Well, noteing your musical tastes might i suggest sony's XB line. They can get rather big and cumbersome but for bass they're some of the best. And there comfort is truly unmatched. Your only issue might be leakage and portability but give the line a look. I have the xb-700 and it's one of the most fun headphones i own. Good luck.

Looking for a headphone and amp combo within a £350 budget. Not really sure if there is a general rule on the price ratio?

I am quite interested in a pair of Sennheiser HD650s, what desktop amp would people recommend to drive those?

 

Thanks

I won't use an amp unless there isn't any competitor that works as good as that phone but without amp

 

sound signature: not very bassy, just as much bass as to note well a drum kick i.e. , nice soundstage and crips but not too much as to get fatigue 

 

music: As i said previously : Post-Rock, alternative Rock, progressive, experimental . I.e : Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Animal Collective

 

 

 

Thanks!

 

Shure SRH 840, Sony MDR 7510, KRK KNS 8400.

I listen to rock, reggae, and psytrance - Is there a pair that can pull all 3 styles properly?

 

Ultrasone Pro 750.

Looking for headphones in the ~250€ or below range.

 

I like that V shaped curve, meaning sparkly highs and strong bass. Had short stint on Sennheiser HD598 that looking back was probably silly it being open design, but got good offer on it. HD598 to me had no bass impact at all. 

 

Listen mainly funk, groove, acid jazz, Daft Punk, R&B and so on.

The Sennheiser HD25-1 II.

There are threads here devoted in whole and in part to the HD 650.  I suggest that you track them down and do some reading.

Hey Guys,

 

I am looking for the most comfortable over the ear headphones sub $150 range. 

 

I want to be able to wear them for 5+ hours at a time. I currently have Sennheiser HD 280 Pro which sound great but begin to hurt my ears after about an hour...

 

Thanks!

Are you OK with open cans (they leak sound)?

 

What equipment will be powering these cans?  Will you be using an amp?

 

Describe the sound signature that you are seeking?

 

What music genres do you plan run through these cans?

post #17158 of 29490

I am okay with open cans. 

 

Just standard sound card from my computer no extra equipment. 

 

I generally like more bass however I now listen to anything from Dubstep to singer/songwriter acoustic music so as long as they are decent quality I will be fine. I listen to Spotify all day and am not a audiophile. 

 

My main concern is the comfort and will be wearing them throughout my entire workday. 

 

Thanks for the quick response!

Thanks! 770 and 990 sound interesting. Will start HeadFi browsing right away. ;)

 

Great thread to those who might have hard time picking between the Beyerdynamics.
