I already own a pair of grados. I was looking to buy the sr325 but I figured the extra 100 dollars might find me something better.

You can look into the HE-400. Might need an amp though. (Sorry I'm not too familiar with this price range!)

That's actually the exact can I was looking at haha.I totally agree though it's sort of a hard price range.

Looking for headphones that satisfy the following needs (in order)

 

Comfort

Sound Quality

Folding

Detachable cord

Durable

Nice looking

 

I definitely prefer a sound signature with bass emphasis.

I have done some research and found these models but I am just looking for more suggestions

SRH 750DJ

ATH M50

Pro 700 mk2

HFI 580

Vmoda M80

Maudio Q40

Beyer Dt770

ultrasone pro 550

HFI 580

 

and the top of my budget is about $175.

I would be open to buying new pads, but am not sure I am into doing a ton of modding (prefferably, none at all)

If you are looking for detail (sorry soundstage is going to be pretty up close with on ear HPs) the DT1350 are very much worth looking into for your portable HP.

 

I auditioned them on my red Go-DAP X, as well as the store's custom diy amp and another amp I forget the name of - something not so popular these days, I think.  The HD650 mids had more substance but treble and clarity was just not there enough for me.  I brought my DT880s along and I always preferred them for their neutrality - less engaging mids than the HD650, yes, but no nagging sense of coloration and overdone-ness in the sound.  The HD800 that I also listened to suited my tastes more but didn't quite seal the deal for me - I will need more time with those on better amps and a quieter environment.  

 

I'm prepared to take the plunge but I'm still not convinced that it's going to be easy to justify going for >$500 headphones.  If the perceived improvement is only going to be incremental, I think I could be happy with my current setup for a while.  

 

I'll give the DT1350 a listen, thanks.

I would say the Grado Sr325i or Beyerdynamic DT990 Premium, granted you would be willing to purchase an amp with those ones.

I think the ATH-PRO700MKII would fit you perfectly.

FYI - Detachable cables often cause more problems than they solve.

 

post #22163 of 29491

Such as?

 

Could I put velour pads on them to make more comfortable?

Wondering the same with the Q40...

I am so indecisive...

 

Since I valued comfort the most I feel like the Pro700's wouldnt be the best..

 

 

Forgot to mention, isolation is placed after sound quality.

 

Listen to all types of music, mostly rap. (no electronica or dubstep for me)

post #22164 of 29491

creative labs aurvana live or grado sr60is for metal, rock and rap?
 

post #22165 of 29491
Can anybody tell me what a good/cheap (around $60) replacement cable with a 3.5mm jack for my grado sr60's would be?

Save money for a better headphone/amp/whatever. The cable should be your last upgrade.

post #22167 of 29491
Yea i know but my cable just got cut open and i really dont like it so i need a new one
post #22168 of 29491

Mostly looking for closed cans, forgot to mention that.

I'd be fine with on or over ears.

This question doesn't belong in the recommendations thread. The guidelines are clearly listed in the for sale forum. See here:
