I disagree with the 280 being uncomfortable.

Hello everyone.I've done a little research and for the money i am able to give (up to 130£) i think that the Audio Technica ATH-M50 are the best choice.I am not experienced though (i never had full-size headphones, only earphones that costed 13£) so i wanted to see some opinions...

I want them just to listen to music and the type of music i listen to is like these:

Also i plan on using them for many hours and i don't want them to make me feel dizzy or like my ears are "burning".

If you think that there are better choices for me then please help me :)

Thanks in advance!!

So what is the main difference between the 439s 449s and 280 pros?

 

I have read mostly the bass. But since most of the music I listen to is rock and metal I never really cared about bass.

 

If the grade sr80s were closed I would prolly get them.. but they arent so yeah lol

Hi everyone, I was wondering if the ATH-M50 are good enough for my daily listening on my ipod. I listen to Dustep, rock and house music, I plan to buy it from the sound professionals where they can mod the headphone to have a detachable cable. Is this a good idea? Are there any other better pair of headphones I should look into?

How much are you willing to spend? They are decent cans but yes, better can be had for the money.

 

 

Thanks,

Umm, no more than $250, and very sparingly please!

On a side note, something that looks nice (:

Thanks :D

Hi, I'm building a new computer soon, and I was going to buy some gaming/music headphones to go with it, so I was looking for any recommendations on what to buy. I've been looking at the KRK KNS-8400 and 6400, as well as the ATH-M50, but I wasn't sure if their soundstage would be any good for gaming. EDIT: Also looking at logitech UE 6000. 

 

Budget: $100-150, I'd be willing to go over by a little bit.

 

Source: My computer (No soundcard as of yet), possibly plugged into a sub-$50 amp depending on how much I spend on the headphones, and mp3 players/iphone/ipod.

 

Preferred Design: Closed back circumaural.

 

Isolation Requirements: They need to be pretty well isolating, probably lots of fan noise and people talking around me while using them. Definitely closed back. 

 

Used For: Gaming and music, mostly orchestral. I probably listen to music more but gaming is definitely the priority. I'll be picking up a zalman mic so headphones are definitely preferable to a headset. 

 

Comfort: Pretty important, I'll use them for much of the day. Working well with glasses without discomfort or poor sound is very important, I wear my glasses pretty much 24/7.

What Headphone

Hi All,

 

 

I am new to headphones other than the Sennheiser cx300II which  i use for my ipod. Please can I get some advise on what headphones I should get. I will only use them at home and only playing cd's through an Onkyo TX-NR515 amp. I listen to folk, rock and metal music. I have listened to Sennheiser HD515's found them to be a little baseless but otherwise acceptable. Currently thinking of getting Grado sr225i's as they have been offred to me at a really good price. I am open to any brands and style's.

 

Thanks

The Grado SR225i are perfect smily_headphones1.gif if you can get past there minor discomfort. Personally , i am very picky about comfort but i think every Grado owner is aware of there discomfort biggrin.gif but yes, Grado cans always highlight Rock, Metal, Folk etc...

It's the best value in the greater Grado family, and a great choice if you like their SR line house sound.

 

Comfort issues for some aside.

Can't help with your Fiio question.

I'm still considering getting the he 400. In terms of comfort, how do they fit compared to the hd 598? Most headphones press against my ears although the hd 598 goes all the way around. Is the he-400 large enough to go all the way around the ears?


Comfort is such an individual thing, that you will just have to try them for yourself.  I find both to be comfortable.

Hi! I'm looking for headphones in price range about 200$ (I can go for used ones too). Currently I lean towards Beyerdynamics COP, DT1350, T50p, Sennheiser HD 25 and AKG K550/701/702. Of all those mentioned I only listened to Custom One Pro with FiiO E11 and I must say I absolutely loved them (they even managed to change my mind buying headphones instead of IEMs smily_headphones1.gif) . I've got big head and COP fitted me good, while ATH M50 was a bit too small. I listen mostly to classic rock and sometimes hard rock and metal. My source is iPhone 4. I don't have any special preferences about how the sound is presented.

EDIT: I'd like  them to have good isolation, because I'll often be using them outside.

I've done a ton of research, reading lots of reviews here, and on amazon. I already have a decent set of headphones: the jvc harx 700. I like them, but I don't 'love' them. 

 

They're fairly close to neutral, with a bit of extra bass, and a little bit of treble roll off. 

 

I'd like a second set of headphones which offer a bit more excitement and emotional involvement. I'm considering the grado sr60i's. Even with a pair of s cushions, the price is still south of $100, which is important to me. 

 

Based on the reviews, I'm sure I'll be getting great sound quality. However, I'm a bit concerned about comfort and the ability to use these for longer listening sessions. Will the s cushions be sufficient to allow me to listen for longer sessions?

 

Also, some reviewers complain that the sound can be fatiguing. I'm hoping that this criticism is limited to:

 

a. certain types of recordings only: ie sources which are very treble heavy

 

b. listening sessions at high volume.

 

Any feedback is appreciated, and let me know if I should post this in the grado thread as well. Thanks!
