I was referring to the T50P, but after reading some reviews on it, I decided against it (and it goes over my budget anyways).

How do the HD25-1 II compare to the Amperiors? I know that they're basically the same headphones, but is there a significant difference?

I was also wondering because vminnovations has refurbished Amperiors for $168. (Are they a good reseller, and would that be a good deal? I know I missed a deal for the Amperiors for $200 on Black Friday last year)

 

How do these compare to other headphones, say the V-Moda M80 or Logitech UE4000?

I got those refurbed Amperiors and it's a good way to to go.  The Amperiors are basically an improved HD25-1 II.  See:

 

http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/most-excellent-sennheiser-amperior-and-hd-25-1-ii

 

The M80 are good bass oriented cans without going all the way to basshead territory. See:

 

http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/v-moda-crossfade-m-80-and-v-80-true-blood-headphones

 

Haven't heard the $100 UE4000.  There are reports of the cable falling out.

What equipment will be powering these cans?  Will you be using an amp and if so, which one?

 

What is the format of your music and other sounds you will putting into these cans?

 

Describe the sound signature that you are seeking?

 

If you don't know your preferred sound signature (and even if you do), what genres of music do you plan to run through these cans?

 

Do you plan to use them outside your home?  If so, in what way & with what equipment?

Hi,
I'm trying to decide on some good headphones for rock and metal. I am limiting myself to $200. I will be getting a Fiio Andes (if that isn't the right choice, let me know).
I was looking at the Grado 225is, but I hear they lack bass. I like to hear some bass in all my music. Not overpowering though. Just a perfect balance of highs, mids, and lows. That is probably impossible for $200 but I would like it as close as possible.

Although not to everyone's taste or comfort, the 225i (not "is") is a great can for rock and metal (and blues and classic country).  It will rock your world, provided you are not expecting basshead lite or more levels of bass.  It is open and leaks a great deal, while isolating almost not at all.

Hello everyone! smily_headphones1.gif
I'm on a quest to find a pair of closed headphones with the lowest amount of leakage possible (for use in silent libraries, studying around other people). I already own a pair of IEMs but fancied having another option.
SO, I have whittled down my search to either: a pair of Beyer dt770/80 ohm pros, OR, A pair of AKG K167s modded with shure 840 pads.
Thoughts? smily_headphones1.gif

maybe you should take a look at the fiio e10. it has a bass boost option and is a great value. havent tried the andes..

Very close to pulling the trigger on the HP100s when I saw the thread about the Sennheiser HD25 Amperior refurbs which fall into my price range. Can anyone provide a comparison of the two? Noise isolation and sound quality are key and portability will help as I travel a few times a year. Also anyone familiar with vminnovations - the sellers of the refurbs?

Lol that's like asking for the best tire for driving in New England. IMO headphones for progressive need to be very fast, and have good imaging. Other than that you really need to share more like budget, preferred sound sig, where and how you'll be using them, what bands you listen to (dream theatre, for example needs a bit brighter sound than, say opeth to show off portnoys cymbal collection)

Obviously the reply button doesn't do what I thought...

Go ahead and delete this post please

Ok so drums will not be recessed like they are with some headphones?

My bad. Just realized the HD25 was on ear vs over ear.

 

I'm thinking I will probably use a portable amp, I am now weighing the HP100 vs. the Beyerdynamic dt770 80 ohm (or possibly the custom one). How about a comparison of the hp100 and the dt770? Alternatively, the dt770 32ohm which is priced a bit higher, but if it doesn't need an amp it's in the same ballpark.

Comparison of hfi 580 and ath pro700mk2
which one is better?
post #24945 of 29491

I need great EDM genre type cans, I'm looking for a well balanced presentation with some "impact" on the bass but nothing that overpowers everything. A lot of my music is either no vocals, or music that has a heavy emphasis on great vocls with a thum thump thump going in the back around.

 

alesso, edward maya, laidback luke, gareth emery are some examples.

 

I've been looking at a wide range

A900X

dt770 80ohms

koss dj pro 100

sound magic hp100

 

I need something with noise isolation so closed are prefered.

 

any other ideas? Are v-moda's offering good? I also game so its kind of important but I have ad700's too. I'm looking for a step up from ad700's
