Thanks everyone on the advice. I'm pretty sure I'm all set on buying the D2000's.


 

post #3527 of 29490

Hi everyone, I'm new here and need some help choosing my new headphones.

 

I mainly listen to metal and trance music and have narrowed my choices down to;

 

Denon HP-1000 or 700

Audio Technica ATH-M50

Audio Technica ATH-PRO 700 MK2

Audio Technica ATH-ANC 7b

 

I'm looking for the best option that will work with an ipod and laptop as well as a bit of studio stuff.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the help Armaegis! I did some research and ended up getting the Shure SRH840 for around $124.00, a steal!

I start reading these forums again looking to upgrade and now I'm wanting an amp and new headphones. arghgh. 

 

I think I might get an amp and then save again for new headphones. or the other way around. I absolutely love the look of the akg 701s, and the schiit valhalla is supposed to pair nicely with it. an investment but it's something I want to do at some point. having a setup as opposed to just a pair of headphones is really appealing to me too.

Thank you head-fiers!

 

I now have some Denon AH-D2000s on the way.   I hope I like 'em!  I also hope they sound alright with my Macbook headphone out, because damn I can't spend more money on an amp.

 

Should be a BIG step up from my ancient Sony mdr-v600s in any case.

 

Great resource y'all have here.

Sounds like you need some Ultrasones.  Check out their DJ line, but also consider the HFI-580 or HFI-780.  Most of the really durable DJ oriented cans are just plain black, because they are all about function, not form.

I dont know what mids highs and lows are but I have a good idea. Something thats not bulky would be better but i dont care that much. I listen to some rap and hip hop dub step and techno could you recomend some cans that i can use with my ipod without an amp. I found these

The Xone 53 is one of my favorite headphones of all time. I used to DJ with them a lot. If you're looking for a somewhat neutral (with a little bass emphasis) sound signature, go with those. They're easy to drive, are durable, and fold up quite nicely.

PX-200 on CL for $25. Pricewise it's great, but for sound I'm really not sure if it's anything I'd be happy with. Any comments on the PX-200 (I not II)
post #3535 of 29490

what's the difference between the akg702 and the 701? on amazon the price difference makes me think there must be something but they seem to be talked about as being the same on here. 

 

noob :(

For $25 there isn't much to complain about...

Ideally, I'd like something with the clarity and dynamics of 880s, without the harsh sounding 'st' sound. I don't really like the Grados I listen to (basically everything from the SR 60is to the SR 325s) because of the excessive treble and lack of location of the people. Also everything felt extremely flat and not life like. That was the same issue I had with the Senn HD650 (along with it feeling super slow). I tried the Denon D2000s out as well and they weren't what I was looking for. Comfort is also an issue, in that I want my head to be cool. This whole sealing business is really frustrating since my head heats up really fast. I really liked the HD600, in comfort. It sounded heavenly as well, but the problem is, I don't listened to heavenly music. I've been listening to a lot of Isis, Tool, Converge, Ocean, Enslaved, Agalloch etc. I'm a metal/post-metal/post-rock/prog-rock guy so i'm really into the whole atmosphere the music creates and the Senns do a pretty good job maintaining that. 

 

Finally, I listen to vinyl and am afraid the 880s will show the hiss on the record. I'm also interested in building an amplifier for either of these headphones so suggestions for that would be helpful as well as any direction to another set of phones/amp combo. 

 

The 880s I listened to were the 250 version and my budget is below flagship models.
