Here's a few examples of what I listen too

 

Dubstep:

I am buying a new pair of headphones and i have narrowed it down to these ones

 

- Audio Technica M50s

- Audio Technica ATH A700

- AKG K701

- AKG K702

- Beyerdynamic DT770 80 ohms

- Denon AHD2000

 

I am buying the Fiio E7, for my new headphones.

There have to be bass and very clear mids.

 

Which one should i get?

 

Please write best for the money money and best overall. Thanks

 

If you're looking for big bass, you will not get it from the K701/702. Next is the A700; I actually think the bass is ok, but a lot of people consider it bass light.

 

A lot of people like the M50 and it does have a strong and punchy bass. I'm not a fan of the mids, but they're ok. The DT770/80 has more bass and more recessed mids. Pick your poison.

 

I feel the D2000 is perhaps the most well rounded of the group, especially if you get jmoney leather earpads which improve the comfort and isolation (which in turn increases bass).

 

Of those listed, best bang for the buck would probably be the M50 assuming you can get it for around $130 (typical US price). Best overall I would give the nod to the D2000.

Would one of the other be better and which amp for the AKG's ?? confused

 

I've owned both and they sounded the same to me.

 

Amping them, they actually sounded best to me coming off a home receiver. In general I liked them with solid state more than tubes. For a budget solution, I've read good things about pairing them with the FiiO e9.

I am looking for some over ear headphones, that cost no more than £130 (note- English currency)!

 

I would really like them to be portable (folding/lightweight) and look damn good!

 

 

I like listening to hip hop, RnB, pop, a little rock and have begun listening to dubstep (only a little). 

 

I would prefer amazing sound quality over a "booming bass!"- I want to feel the bass but I don't want it to overpower the music. My source is an ipod touch 3rd generation. 

 

Thanks in advance :)

Hi! i am a beatboxer and looking for good headphones for monitoring beatboxing in studio. i am looking into these two headphones : akg k 271 mk ii or beyerdynamic dt 770 pro 80 ohm. which you would thin would fit my purposes better?

Skullcandy Aviator vs Klipsch ONE On-Ear ... GO!! I listen to Rap, Rock, and Jazz and need looks, sound, and portability. I listened to both at the Apple store and they both sound the same to me. The Skullcandy has an amazing look and a one sided cable biggrin.gif. They are also a bit more comfortable than the Klipsch. Both have in-line controls. The price is about the same.

The K271 would suit you better as they present the vocal range more accurately than the DT770 for monitoring purposes.

If they sound the same to you and cost the same, pick the one that looks better and feels more comfortable.

Neither.  biggrin.gif  They are polar opposites- and represent extremes in sound that are both flawed.  DT770-80 have intense bass that is well out of proportion with the rest of the frequency spectrum.  Treble is harsh and without good amplification, literally painful.  High current tube amps improve them considerably, but their overall signature is the same.  K271 are the opposite.  Their bass is so gentle it is non-existent and their mids and highs are sweet, well integrated and pleasing overall.  However each is so far from neutral that if you use them to master a neutral sound your mix will either have no bass & treble (DT770) or way too much bass (k271).

 

SRH840 have a much more neutral sound and get almost everything right.  Small flaws are small soundstage, a tiny mid-bass hump and some complain of limited treble extension.  But imo they are better for monitoring and enjoying music than other closed headphone at 2x the price.  Other headphones people often recommend for studio use are K240 & M50 but I haven't heard them & so will stop writing now.

Im wondering whether the Skullcandy Aviator or the Klipsch Image ONE would be the right choice. I listen to Rap, Rock, and Jazz. Bass is a good thing for me. Please dont recommend other headphones.

post #3010 of 29490

Didn't I just answer you a few posts above?


 

post #3011 of 29490

yes but I would like more opinions

post #3012 of 29490

BeyerDynamic bt770 80 ohms.

 

This has probably been the most recommended headset but, also the most "iffy" when people see I am considering it.

 

When in guitar center their pair they had were "out for repair" so I didn't get to listen to them..

 

The guy at the counter said "Just like listening to your subwoofer in your car, and great if you love rap/hip hop" and that seems like a nightmare to me.. I get the impression its going to make that horrible reverberation that is stereotypical of people with modded sound systems.. (not syaing its the reality but, you all know the "cars that go boom" I am referring to)

 

Am I wrong in thinking that? or is it that what I would be getting..

If those are your only options, and you've been able to hear them and directly compare them yourself, you're the best judge.  If you can't hear a difference, read up on tracks/musical passages that reveal flaws & strengths in audio gear, bring those with you and try again.

I'm kinda new to this audiophile thing so I don't really know how to describe the sound I want :) I currently own the Beats Studio and I think they are good on bass but sound wise not very 'clear' and bit noisy on rocks.

 

I'm looking for something clear, relaxing, nothing too bassy, of course a little bass would be good. Something similar to the DT880s, but I heard the DT880s needs a better amp to get their full potential.

I listen to almost all kinds of songs, rock, hip hop, r&b, rap, classic, 'slow & quiet songs' (whatever you call that), and no jazz lol. I'll be using it off my laptop.

 

Let me know guys, any suggestions is much appreciated Thanks :)

 

PS. Suggest me anything other than Sennheisers. Not that I hate them, it's just that.. I don't know, I don't really like Senns. And I have set eyes on the Denon AH-D2000s, till I found out the build quality is not so good.

For something that sounds good with rock, rap, classical and works well with a portable amp I think D2000 is a good option.  I've owned D5000  & D7000, and apart from the vulnerability of the wooden cups to scratches (which is not a problem with D2000), find no problems with build quality.
