I have already bought the Vmoda m100's but I am planning to return them because they are extremely uncomfortable because the earcups are too small.

 

If anyone has other suggestions please do tell me.

My budget is 300-400 dollars.

And I generally listen to EDM(Dubstep etc) but I occasionally also listen to pop,rock and some female vocal orientated music(Norah Jones).

 

I own the FiiO E7 so amping wouldnt be a problem.

 

Finally it would be a great help if you can recommend a good headphone store in the UK. I had to pay a hefty customs charge when ordering the Vmodas from America(£57).

 

Thank you.

 

 

 


Your mids will suffer with the 770.  The HE-400 and Beyer DT 880 (+/-Pro) are far better cans and have good bass--but that's judged from a neutral perspective.  So they may not feature the "enhanced" bass that you appear to be seeking.

Hey guys, I'm looking for entry closed headphones around $40(willing to go up a bit its worth it) with this price range I know I cant ask for much, but I'm looking for a pair that has low sound leakage above all else. It would be nice if they were exceptionally comfortable or sound decent ,for their price of course, but sound leakage is priority. I listen to many genres but mainly jazz and house. I was considering the Audio-Technica ATH-M30 or the Monoprice MHP-839, but all other recommendations are welcome. Thanks.

Slim pickings in that price range.  Check out the JVC HARX700.

 

The Superlux HD 681 Dynamic Semi-Open Headphones will probably leak too much for your needs.

Hi,

If no one answers me I make multiple posts until I get the answer.

This is a very active thread so people may miss your question or your question is hard to answer?

You made 12 posts and you say community sucks.... o_0

 

This thread has more people with questions than answers. 

 

Since you first asked your question did you do any more research and narrow down your list of headphones? Don't expect somebody to make the decision for you.

Yep i say that, because before posting here, i create a new post with my question. After fews days of empty "UP" , someone tell to post my question here, so do i, and.. nothing.

 

And before create my acount here, i read and read and read, and after this reading session i can make a list of headpones. so yes i search a lot before.

 

Wathever, i made my choice, i'll go to a store soon, and i'll listen between a PX360 / V55 & XB500

Hi,

Im looking for headphones mainly for gaming but also for some movies and music. Ive ordered an Asus Xonar Phoebus and im looking for a good pair of headphones to go with it, ATM particularly interested in the Beyerdynamic 880 Pro (250 ohm) but ive been told that it can be difficult to amp. Is this a problem with the sound card, or is the amp in the sound card powerful enough to take advantage of what the headphones have to offer?

 

Thanks

Also, the Koss Portapros are quite reveled for their amazing price vs. driver quality. The sacrifices? The looks of the headphones are a love hate thing, as it has an almost "retro" look. Definitely an amazing buy for their price ($36). Also, the bass of these guys are pronounced as well, another love/ hate thing.

 

Best of luck!

Not the best for low leakage thoughbiggrin.gif (the Portapros that is).
 
Koss DJ100 are a great alternative around $50. They're closed but do have some leakage with stock pads. Changing  the pads to Brainwavz HM5 pads reduces leackage to very little (but adds a extra $16 to the total cost).

It could be that no one person on Head-fi has use all three of the headphones you listed, so may not be sure on which one to recommend.

The Phoebus can easily drive 250-Ohm headphones.

The HE400 have excellent bass, but they are fairly neutral cans (as will be any in your price range, the high end will usually be neutral focused and emphasized bass will be in the slightly lower tier)
I can't comment on the Beyers but the HE400's are really excellent at all music, I love mine for EDM / dubstep stuff. The bass is great but the entire range is also great...which may/may not provide the impact you seem to want. That will require bass emphasis which is easier found in slightly cheaper phones (but not exclusively)
My short demo of the vmoda 100 showed a bass emphasis but I thought the mids were a lot muddier than my 400's

http://us.playstation.com/ps3/accessories/wireless-stereo-headset-ps3.html

 

and am wondering if it's possible to upgrade from there for my own personal uses.

 

 

 

 

Music genres:

*Mostly Synthesized Rock

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSx0SSvOtUs

 

*Lots of J-Rock/Pop

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Stk3r9a5ykI

 

*Lots of Dance/Techno/Industrial

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFKzEZhytGA

 

*Even more Easy Listening

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1CjxQXXA7o

 

 

Portable: No, home PC use.

 

 

Price range: Not including the portable amp/dac, $600. Including a portable amp/dac, $800.

 

 

Closed/Open: I prefer Closed, but if Open will offer such a significant mind-boggling world-ending camatose-from-pleasure experience, I'm up for it.

 

 

Headphone preference:

*I prefer "fake leather padding" around the ear cups over silk padding, but if a headphone with silk padding will offer such a significant mind-boggling world-ending camatose-from-pleasure experience, I'm up for it.

 

*A headphone that goes over the head (I hate the over-the-ear ones)

 

 

Other Notes:

*I love Bass, but I HATE Bass that drowns everything out

I think u should take a look at the following headphones:

Hifiman HE-500 (which is open, but it still has quite a flat and neutral bass)
Denon AH-D5000 (closed, but the bass might drown to much out for your liking)
Sennheiser HD-650 (open, but is one of the most highly praised headphones around head-fi) (recommendation for the Senns are aftermarket cables and a good amp)

Maybe other members've got some other recommendations ;)
