++ FULL-SIZE HEADPHONE RECOMMENDATIONS THREAD++ CLOSED: Please post a thread in the... - Page 1857  

post #27841 of 29491

I am reposting because I am looking for a good pair of high-impedance headphones....so I figured out high impedance = full size headphones. Current pair is only 32 ohm seinnheiser PX200. Yes low impedance but really pretty clear & good for the price & durability. It wont break! Any headphones with over 100 ohm and wide frequency like at least 10-30000? Must it have large output power too like 500 to 1000? How about db...what is that?

 

I went to headphone store and was recommend AKG HD 272 or 242.

With cheap fiio  amp quality is sooooo different an crystal clear....just a bit lack of bass,punch and clarity loudness like sein 200 PX but good!

What do you guys think? Or should I hit on other brands' studio headphones?

Salesman told me not to get headphones for mixing and Dj-ing type as the range is pretty flat.

Located in Singapore.

Budget is USD 200 to 250 hopefully.

 

Usage is only for appreciating original recording's music with a loud clear vocals,music effects & original soundstage.

For travelling purpose too but not when walking under the sun.

 

Also, for high impedance headphones, what kind of amp should I be getting? I hope not to get bulky amp due to frequent usage and moving around. Any thread can recommend me?

 

AKG, seinheiser, Sony, Bose which is good?

I was very tempted to get ultrasone but I think the frequency & impedance rate is pretty much like my current can.

Help please ^____^ Appreciated Thanks!

Music genre I listen to: Soft rock, Jpop, Acoustic,Hip-hop/R&B

Considering to get Sony Xperia . But still listening to my portable CD walkman so may or may not sell off my CDs.

Reason: Either there's something wrong with my Samsung MP3 smartphone or the music is just not good enough!

Must I get an AMP? But I am so fussy wiith the specs haha I dont know what to do.

Hey guys, i'm looking around for a pair of headphones with alot of emphasis on the soundstage and clarity, and would prefer it be an open headphone. The budget is under or around 80$. It would be also really nice if these were mobile, but not a requirment.
Thanks guys.

And one more thing, these also will be run by an iphone and computer, no amp

Maybe you should check the bit rate of your mp3 files, the standard (default setting) bit rate of mainstream management software (itunes, windows media player etc) when ripping is 128kbps (or the last time I checked/used them). If you used to listening to CD, mp3 128kbps most probably sounded like trash.

Try reading about Sennheiser Amperior or Sennheiser Momentum or Sony MDR 1R. Momentum and 1R had this stylish look with good sound, while Amperior looks more military.

I don't know about other headphone, as I never trying them.

Try Sennheiser PX100 II (open) or PX200 II (closed). Mind the "II", it means the second generation. I tried both and found them very good for the price.

Hi,

So I am after some new headphones sometime in the future as I still haven't replaced my last pair which bit the dust.

Now to the fun bit, my music tastes:
So my main music taste is anything from Queen to Creedence Clearwater Revival.

I listen to Vinyl, CD's and on Youtube.

My budget is around £100-£150 and UK buying would be great.

I have been recommended the Audio Technica ATH-900X's, What do you think of these?

I do not currently have an amp and have no plans to buy one any time soon,

Thanks.

Hmm, well the px100 II's look like a great deal and very good sound i cant find enough about its soundstage, and the most i hear about it is that it isnt very good, and same goes for instrument seperation. The px200 II simply doesnt look right for me. Any other suggestions? Or thought's about the soundstage?
post #27848 of 29491

Will you use it on the go / road? If not, Audio Technica AD700 soundstage is the best for $100. I don't know if you could get for $80 though, it is usually priced at $100.

For not so big company, Superlux HD668b (around $50) soundstage is awesome.

so a couple of days ago i asked for every single reason why any good £200+ headphones are better than beats, i got a response but it was half done as he said there were more ways they were better than beats, so far he covered soundstage, muddy sound and the drivers etc, what else is there to point out? i need every reason why to persuade my dad to let me buy some good £200+ headphones!

Hello, I would like some assistance finding a new headset. This is my first time looking for a quality headset, so some of the specifics are new to me. Most of the time I would just get a random $30 headset from a random store.

 

Basically, I am looking for something with a closed back and good noise cancellation. I travel on the bus to work, so I would like to block out that noise, and not annoy other passengers with my music. I wear glasses, the arms are small and thin, so something that fits good while wearing glasses would be ideal. 

 

I also would like something with a very durable cord, especially by the jack, which is where my previous headsets would break at, as I do a good amount of walking.

 

I will be using a 5th gen Ipod (Model: A1136 EMC: 2065) for all of my music and an occasional audio book. I listen to a number of different music genres, mostly death metal (Dying Fetus, Necrophagist, Amon Amarth), Symphonic Metal (Epica, After Forever, Therion), Ska (Leningrad) Metal/Heavy (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, HammerFall) among other things.

 

The format/bit rate of the music is a bit of a mess, mostly mp3 at 96 to 360 kbps; I have not really bothered with format/bit rate up until now.

 

I do not have an amplifier, but if one is recommended, I may consider getting one.

 

My budget is a little up in the air at the moment, but I probably would not want to go over $400 USD.


Sony MDR 7520--excellent and balanced sound, detachable cable and you can use 1/8th inch male to 1/8th inch male mini cable for portable use, excellent build to stand up to years of studio and very efficient--no amp required.

If there is possibility of getting Sennheiser PC 360 G4ME should I go for it, or look for something different in that category? (mic is important for me)

What source device will it be coming from and what amp, if any, will you be using?


Under 500$ budget
I will probaly use Them in an idevice.
Closed cans prefferably
Listen to rock/metal, i dont know the bit/format rate
No amp


Sony MDR 7520--see my last post for more.

post #27853 of 29491

Any ideas for my situation? I am also looking at the AGK 550's as they have been getting some great reviews.

 

If I go for the 900X's I will import them from Japan.

 

Thanks.

Your request seems to be largely unfocused and in need of some research.  Questions about tech matters need to be raised in the sound science section of the forum.  I also suggest that you review the buying guys linked in the opening post of this thread.  That will help you to focus and define your questions--and may even lead you to an answer.
