Any recommendation for headphones good for movies and games other than the CAL! for for 110 euro?

post #20597 of 29490

Hello guys,

 

Been seeking an improvement to my current setup for a while.

My current audio setup:

 

Fiio E17 + ATH AD900

 

Well, bought AD900 for its clarity, separation and soundstage. and yes, I'm pretty satisfied and impressed with it considering AD900 is upgraded from a cheap laptop-bundled headphone.

This headphone mainly used for music (instrument, vocal, pop). For me, clarity,details,soundstage is much more important than bass which AD900 has not dissappoint on. But sadly, human never satisfy with what they've. I am looking for headphone and dac/amp which at least better than e17 + ad900 on my usage as stated above.

I expect the budget to be more than ad900 since it's better.

 

Thanks.

Hey!

 

Would like some opinions on which are the best headphones sub-200$? (or approximately 150 euros). I'm most likely going to get only an Asus Xonar DG sound card which supplies amplifier for the headphones. I know it's nothing fancy, but for it's price I guess it's worth investing? I listen to many types of music, but rock and pop are the main genres. I do also game, but the quality of music is more important for me. If you think that some headphones that are SLIGHTLY over 200$ but definitely worth the extra money, I think I could stretch that much. I don't really know how different the sound is with open headphones compared to closed ones, as I've only owned closed type, but I'm going to use them home only so both are acceptable. Please give me some opinions. :)

Hello all, New to the forums Wanting to start my trek into audiophile world.

 

 

Music genres: 40% Trance( some dubstep as well) 30% Classical and 30% Kpop/Jpop, on Ocasion I do listen to hiphop

Portable: No

Price range: with an amp/dac Looking to spend $1600 was thinking of going Schiit Mjolnir and Schiit Gungnir but unsure about any cheaper alternatives ( best bang for buck) I have heard a lot of good things about these two.

 

Closed/Open: Un sure of what to get open or closed does not matter

Headphone preference: Something fun to listen to and enjoy for hours, i suppose comfort is important I have zero experience on high end headphones the best I have listened to was a amped M50

 

 

Not sure if I should buy the amp/dac first and then do more research and next year purchase the headphone due to budget constraints or buy the headphone first to enjoy and then do research on the appropriate amp/dac.

 

Tho I do believe I can buy a headphone now and wait for sales on dac/amp later if any sales should arrive.

I know... I don't know what to tell you with such tight "budget constraints"......

I guess you will have to go without.

At $1600 (add abit more) you can get the HE-6/LCD2 rev2 + lyr + bisfrost, both LCD2 & HE-6 have a great bass for trance & dubstep but more impact on the LCD2 though

I think i have posted here a couple of times in this thread but no response frown.gif
but I wanted to know what headphones should I get that fits me.!
Needs to be closed,
price range of 100-400$
Somewhat portable but not massive, will be using this for commuting to work( 1.5 hour commute)
Noise isolation doesnt need to be impressive.
Needs to be somewhat neutral sounding.. Not too bassy but needs to be heard, mid range needs to be upfront etc etc.
I was looking into a bluetooth wireless headphone witht the option of enabling the wire on it but i dont know yet.
Music type varies, I listen to alot of Indie, Indie rock, Post rock,rock, punk, psychadelic, trap, electronic and a little of pop, hiphop. No jazz, country for me.
Will be using this to be paired with my iBasso D-Zero and ipod touch 4th gen. and at times at home.
Right now im using my custom IEM from 1964 triple driver. I also own Sennheiser HD 650, Brainwavz HM5, Ultrasone Pro 900.

Thanks alot guys

Suggestions for a closed semi-portable around ear headphone in the 100-250 range that has a similar soundstage to the Philips SHE3580? (these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003BT69Z2/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00)

+1 DT1350 for a true portable. ++++1 actually.

Also if you are looking for a full sized to lug around... my akg550 matches your taste but if you have a smallish head, you won't get a good seal and judging by your pic (if that is you) you don't look like a real big dude.

BTW both mentioned are highly praised by Tyll, you can watch his vids on both.

Hi, I'm looking for a pair of good headphones under $50.

I'm looking for something with...

  • Good clear sound
  • Some bass
  • Perhaps a microphone

 

I'll be using it to listen to music (Examples below), maybe play Modern Warfare 3, and watch the occasional Netflix movie. I know I'm asking a bit much but this is my first time purchasing decent headphones and it's all new to me. I was originally going to buy a pair of Monoprice 8323s but I then thought it wouldn't fit all my needs so I'm coming here for a second opinion.

 

 I listen to music such as

  • Drake - Over
  • Karmin - Hello
  • 2 Chainz Ft. Drake - No Lie

 

Thank you very much. I know this community is full of kind and intelligent people that never fail to deliver the highest of recommendations.

 

 

Edit: Basically I want some 8323s or something better if there is such a thing with maybe, just maybe a microphone. Something built for listening to Hip Hop/Dance/Rap music as well as watching Netflix.

I ordered a pair myself. Ive tried them briefly and they are supremely comfy.

Otherwise you can search the CAL on here "Creative Aurvana Live". I don't have them so can't say myself but highly praised.

Hello everyone I am new to this forum and I might be joining the Grado Big Family here LOL. But now I am still considering which can to get. Two options for me: The Sr225i can and the Alessandro Ms-1. I heard that MS-1 has warmer sound, more median bass, less bright and detail while 225i has more detail, more balanced frequency distribution but lack the "warm"  MS-1 special characteristics, which fancys most of the ms-1 buyers. So which one do you guys really recommand? Thanks.

 

btw, I only have a portable Technics CD player and a tablet. Thanks!
