I decided to ask it here. :) I had posted my question about the headphones that I liked, but the member I came across only knew the V-Moda LP2, in which I was interested.

 

So:

 

What am I looking for?

A closed headphone with lots of isolation. 

 

Which genres?

Indie rock, indie folk, audiobooks(!!!! those are so important for me) and a little bit of dubstep

 

Where do I want to use them?

Everywhere! To give some examples; In the bus, in the train, on the street, in the car, on the bike (BADDIE! Traffic!)

 

Something else?

I am hoping to find a headphone with a detachable cable. my K272HD died, because the cable broke... :(

 

Which headphones do I have in mind?

 

  • V-Moda LP2
  • Sennheiser Momentum
  • AKG K550

 

If you have any headphone you want to recommend to me, feel free to do so! 

 

 

Thanks for your time! :D 

 

 

Dear everybody. I tried this a couple days ago, but I did not get any responses. I am looking for a headphone that does most indie folk / indie rock best. And Audiobooks. Someone told me you need a headphone with good mids for good audiobooks. Can anyone help me? I've added some headphones too. And deleted The AKG K550 of the list. These are the headphones I am wanting right now.

 

  • V-Moda M-100
  • Sennheiser Momentum
  • AKG K271 MK II
  • Philips Fidelio L1

 

Please, I am delighted if someone can help me. :)

if you are looking for something more portable the UE9000's may be the way to go though I personally own the MM-550's.

Cheers for that, they look good but i think i should have made clear i need them for £200 or less.

Recommend me a headphone with the bass and treble detail of an Ultrasone Pro 900 (maybe with more sub-bass extension), but without the sibilance and harshness of treble which makes my ears want to bleed at times (though it has gotten better over time). Most importantly, I need more mids! Maybe something more "U" shaped rather than "V" shaped.

Sounds like you need a Denon-- an older Denon, not the new ones.

Hi!

 

Here is the problem. One year ago, I bought a Sennheiser HD25-1 ii after having read all the excellent reviews on the internet.

I realized why it is said to be a “professional” headphone: the sound is extremely detailed and clear, the headphone itself is unbreakable… But I don’t really like its sound.


It lacks personality and warmth. The sound is too neutral for me.

Do you have some advice concerning an on-ear headphone (or other type…) under 180$?
I listen to trip-hop music, electronic music, rock music…

Thank you very much!

I'm gravitating around the Shure SRH840 for a neutral, closed, isolating pair under $180


thoughts?

Beyer dt990 or Denon d7000

I've been listening to DT 880 and Q701 for a while now and the Beyerdynamics appeal VERY much to me. Apart from sounding really good to my ears, they feel light and comfortable. Based on your recommendation, I think I'll get them.

Portable: In a sudden rush, I ordered the AT ATH-ESW9a. I will try the SRH 940, though!

 

Which amp should I get? There's no possibility in my area to listen to portable amps.


The HeadRoom Total Airhead will power any of the cans we have discussed and its currently on sale for half price ($49.00) here:

OK--you have me confused, as you said that rock was you favorite music and the DT 990 are wayyy to "V" shaped an EQ for my rock listening.  What sound signature are you seeking?

You're not being ignored.  I just don't have anything that will help you.

They're very good if their mid bass hump and somewhat recessed highs don't pull them too far from neutral for you needs.

 

The KRK KNS 8400 are closer to neutral--less bass and just a bit bright.  They are also very comfortable and isolate quite well.

What sound signature are you seeking?  More bass?  Brighter? More slam? What?

post #19678 of 29491

More bass I think

Ahhh so hard to choose. 

I don't mind a little extra bass since I do enjoy it and 99% of my music would use it nicely, but I'm not sure I want to sacrifice highs for them.

Wish I could listen to these songs with bothbeyersmile.png
