post #4969 of 29490

Hey all, I've been all over the place online. I'm going to make this post easy for you guys, since my last post was kind of muddled up and glanced over.

 

I'm looking for headphones and I have large ears, so comfort is a huge issue.

 

Closed would be nice, but not necessary.

 

I listen to a lot of rock, alternative, jazz, classical and hip-hop and I listen to music for long periods of time, so like I said, comfort is essential.

 

Something durable would be nice, so something with one wire and if possible, detachable, would be nice, but again, unnecessary.

 

My budget is currently $150 or less, but that could change. I do not have an amp.

 

My source is a laptop and an ipod classic. Laptop has music in 320/v0/FLAC, whereas ipod has music in 320/v0.

 

Currently, I have the portapro, and it works for my needs. I feel like I'm missing out on something, though, and would love to explore more to what music has to offer.

 

Thank you for any and all help.

2) Uhmm, all genres, but in particular electronica (trance, drum and bass, chillout). However I will use this headphone also for pc gaming...

3) Yes! :D

 


Do you play FPS? if so, bass and directional cues to not mix.

 

Random suggestions:

Shure 840 or 940

Beyer DT1350

Senn HD25-1-ii

Your current amp should be fine. Go for the Pro900 (or maybe 750 first if you haven't heard an Ultrasone before).

I would go with this one over your other choices you listed.

I would still rather go with the K240 unless you usually listen at very loud levels. Neither is that great for portable use if that's what you want though.

The Shure840 is on sale right now on Amazon for $140. Fits large heads and large ears, durable, removeable singled sided cord.

Ok got my choices narowed down for what headphones to get. Looking to spend less than $200. My source will be a Sound Blaser Xfi Card. 

 

These are listed in my rankings right now from first to last

 

 

Ultrasone HFI-680 - $144
Audio-Technica ATH-M50 - $159
AKG K 272 HD - $199
Shure SRH840 - $133
beyerdynamic DT 660 - $179
Beyerdynamic DT 770-PRO - $183
 
music wise I listen to a lot of 90's alt rock, some 80's stuff too. I also like Eric Clapton and Santana. Like some 70's bands like Boston and the Eagles as well. Don't listen to electronica much. Used to listen to metal but not super often anymore. Will be using them for gaming but music is my top priority.
 
I am not a bass head. I like it present but not overpowering. I like clarity over all.

would the ultrasone pro 900 or d5000 be a big improvement over my dt990/600?  as in worth the $125 price difference i'd have to pay?

I haven't head the Pro 900, but the D5000 is basically in the same league but with a different sound.  Its a side-grade not really an upgrade unless you really don't like the DT990's sound sig.

post #4974 of 29490

So I've made a few posts in this topic recently, each with different headphones on my radar...

 

This time, I'm looking at the Grado SR325is. I was originally hesitant to get open cans again because my PC fans make a lot of noise but I'm getting newer, quieter ones, so open cans will likely be in consideration again. 95% of my music is guitar-centric rock, so that's why I'm looking at the Grado sound again (I have MS1 right now). My concern is brightness, it seems like a majority of the posts about the SR325 is about its brightness, but I'm really intrigued by its forward, rock specialty instead of Alessandro's comparative laid-backness. I'm afraid to buy a pair and not like them ... and I have no idea about a place where I can demo headphones (Hampton Roads, Virginia area). Unfortunately, the RS2i new is out of my budget, but I could look around for a used pair... Any suggestions?

They can be harsh but the threshold is very subjective. With my gs-1 they are pushing it at certain records but with the LD MK2 its better.

Hey guys!

 

I'm looking for some headphones.

 

I listen to a lot of rock, drum and bass, electric, that sorta thing, but the headphones will primarily be used for FPS games (and this is what I want them to be good at).

 

My budget is currently around $150 or €100 or £90, but I'm Danish, so prices are far from the same as in the US.

 

My source will most likely be a Creative X-Fi Titanium. I'd chosen the HD555 (which are €105), but decided to just ask in here before making a huge purchase.

Alright, and what if my budget was slightly extended to $200. Would that change your recommendation? Or would you say that buying the 840+amp would be sufficient?

post #4978 of 29490

Hi everyone, I have a 450$ budget to buy a headphone(full size) I will amp it with an ibasso d10 and my ipod with lod. I really need an all-arounder but I specially like progressive rock,classical(mainly piano music), and trance. My best option was the Ultrasone pro 900 but I am not a basshead at all(but I will like a MUCH better bass than my actual ATH-A700),and I am seeking something more vocal with good soundstage so I think tha maybe Sony SA5000 are a good option but I heard that they lack totally bass(IS THIS TRUE???) and also they lack of soundstage(This is the aspect that I love from my A700). Maybe Pro900 keez modded???????

Please someone help me!!!!

post #4979 of 29490

Thanks from Montreal, Canada.

The SA5000s don't have any more bass than the AD700s.

 

The Beyerdynamic DT990s have plenty of bass and a fairly large soundstage.  Barring that you might want to look into the rest of the AD line.  $450 could get you a used AD2000 and while I haven't heard it I've read that other people enjoy it with progressive rock and electronic music.
