Hm interesting. There are times when my ears can be a little sensitive. I'm a little hesitant as well since I heard the Hi-Fis are also not very comfortable.


What about my questions regarding the DT770 & M50s 3 or 4 posts above?
post #18707 of 29490

Hi! I've been lurking around Head-Fi for quite some time now and today I decided to make an account to ask for your advice.

 

Although I really enjoy my HD 205's sound-wise, I am looking for a new pair of cans in the ~100-150€ price range because the HD 205's are getting uncomfortable after a quite short period of time.

 

My taste in music mainly consists of electronic music and a few of my favourite Artists are Justice, Daft Punk, Gorillaz, Pendulum, Netsky etc. but I listen to almost anything if it's good. 

I'm also using a pair of AKG K328 and a FiiO E6 + lod and I have been looking into buying AKG K242 HD's but I read that the bass is kind-of 'muddy', do you have any better suggestions for Over-ear headphones? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Wait! Good news. I just realized Bose offers a 30 day home trial and you can get your money back within that time. Which means I've just extended my finances to over $300!!

So based on my previous preferences listed (minus the $200 maximum), what headphones would suit me best? biggrin.gif

Thanks again tongue.gif

I think I will go for the dt 880 but what about the e10 desktop amp? Do you know anything about this combo(dt 880 + e10)? Do you think they will work as a good combo? biggrin.gif

My entry level destop amp is the hybrid HiFiMan EF2A--which powers them with no difficulty.  I have never owned a Fiio.

Hey! I'm looking for a good pair of closed over-ear headphones under $500. I listen to mostly hardcore/metal, but a lot of other genres as well and I listen on my 160GB iPod Classic (just AAC files), hopefully I'll be getting a Fiio E7 as an amp soon.

 

I currently have a pair of Sennheiser HD 558 and they're awesome! Just not good for on-the-go use seeing as their open, have a huge cable and bulky jack. So pretty much what I'm looking for is:

 

- Closed

- Over-ear

- Good for metal/hardcore

- Under $500

- Short cable

- Good for on-the-go

 

Thanks!

 

P.S. The new Sennheiser Momentum is looking AWESOME, any idea if they might suit my needs? Also been looking at the Denon AH-D600EM, but I'm favouring the Momentum. Of course, I'm open to any other suggestions.

I have to pick between  Bose ie2, klipsch s4 & sony XBA 3 as my gift..

 

Which is better and why...

 

I particularly like soundstage, true vocals, Nice treble, tight bass and most importantly instrument separation..

 

 

Plz respond

 

I am from india, so i only have only these IE's availbale around me...

 

:(

Hey there, I'm looking for a set of cans for use on an iPod Video and/or my Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone (unamped, would also appreciate recommendations on a portable amp if it would be necessary to get the best sound). I have a budget of about AU$300. As for my music range I listen to a bit of everything but metal, dubstep and drum 'n' bass are my main three genres (essentially anything with a nice heavy drum beat). I like the sound my Sennheiser HD215s have however the bass is a bit too weak. Top of my list at the moment are the Sennheiser HD598s and the V-MODA M-80s. Thank you in advance.

You're in the wrong section of the forum.  This is for Full Sized Headphones.

post #18715 of 29490

hey guys,

 

I am looking for a pair of headphones that are up to $350-400 dollars. I am a basshead, and am thinking of PRO 900, but they say they are terrible unamped. I am going to be using them unamped with an iPhone and a MacBook PRO. What options are there?

 

Thanks!

The low price in the Denon AH-D600 ends tomorrow so I have to decide before that. So any advice would be much appreciated. 
 
Taking into consideration that I will be listening mostly to Spotify on my laptop through a FiiO E10, and then question is; would it be overkill to buy the Denon (hence the sound is only as good as the source)?

with a dac out from the laptop should be fine...

since your finger is like half an inch from the BUY button...

... and sorry about your wallet :)

 

I was secretly hoping that you would have said it would be overkill, so I could have bought a set of cans in the sub-$200 category happy_face1.gif
