The Shure 940 are reported less bassy and have much improved detailing over the 840. The W1000x like the other full sized Audio Technicas has a lighter sound with a bit of resonance and are very comfortable, with a mid-uppermid focus. The Senn HD600 slots somewhere in the middle, is open backed unlike the other two, with a focus on the mids-lowermid.

I currently own a pair of Sennheiser HD 25's but I find them really uncomfortable and I am looking to try and find a pair of headphones that match or exceed their sound quality but are much more comfortable. Could anyone help me find a pair of headphones that will be best for me, all help would be appreciated.

 

Sorry I forgot to mention but I don't want to spend any more than £200.

 

Strong isolation and comfort: B&W P5

So the W1000x is much more specific to mellower genres?

Ultrasone HFI-450 - well that's probably what i want, but the same problem - can't find here where to buy :(      So maybe someone can tell me simmilar headphones to these?



so maybe some simillar headphones to hfi-450 or M50? what's about steelseries products? do they have bass?

What is the sound quality of the B&W P5's like?

How much are Beats by Dr. Dre (by Monster) worth?

 

In a honest world, what would be the price of these?

 

I have Klinsch in ear headphones and I dont like it. I think I want a change from the in-ear headphones and want a more comfortable full sound.

 

So after doing research all fingers point to Beats by Dre. I'm looking for other headphones but they're designed poorly. These are headphones I will be wearing while walking outside so i'm looking for comfort. I'm also looking for headphones I can place in my bag without it breaking.

If the Beats were honestly priced, they would be found at $100.
And the Beats have durability issues - it is cheaply made, so beware! Get the Audio Technica ATH-M50/Shure SRH750DJ/Denon DJ HP-700 instead. Much better than the Beats!

Are there electronic stores that will allow me to test these products out?

 

Best Buy perhaps?

post #5379 of 29490

Anything similar to Shure 530s, but with superior fit and sound with a very slight trade off between the bass and treble, while retaining the beautiful mids?

 

Looking in the 150-300 dollar price range

They're not bad headphones at all, but with the beats you pay for style, noise cancelling, comfort, as well as sound.
  I don't think the noise cancelling feature is much to write home about( although it does forgo needing a headphone to cramp your ears to block out sound, so in that respect it is good)

 

If I was in the market for Beats I wouldn't really pay beyond 150

 

post #5381 of 29490

i have narrowed my choices down to audio-technica ath-m50, beyerdymamic dt770 pro and denon ah-d1100.

 

i listen mostly to rock, metal, country and some pop(1960 to present)

i prefer a correct and detailed sound over lots of bass, but not too lacking in bass either.

 

they will be used with a headphone amp.

which should i get?

post #5382 of 29490

I'm looking for headphones with the best price/performance at the more or less $100 price range.  Mostly looking into closed cans, because I'll do most of my listening in my dorm and don't want to disturb my roommate, especially at night.  Here are some I'm contemplating at the prices I can get them:

 

Sony MDR-V6: $45 refurbished

Creative Aurvana Live: $60

Audio Technica ATH-M50: $110-120

Sony SRH840: $120 (comfort seems like an issue here)

Ultrasone HFI-700: $130

 

I'm not too picky in terms of sound signature (haven't really found my favorite yet).  However, I do like a good soundstage, and I don't care too much for overpowered bass.  I'll be using these for general music and movies on my laptop, as well as gaming on the PS3.  

 

Please propose other good options and their price! I'm mainly looking for value here!  Thanks!

You might want to look at something open like the Audio Technica AD700 if you want a large soundstage.

post #5384 of 29490

How does Denon D2000 compare to Phiaton MS 400 in build quality, comfort, sound? (any other with similar sound at price, $200 USD)

 

and are there any good tube (not solid) amps around $150-200 USD not made in china? (would they be significantly not as good as Fiio E7/E9?)

Thanks for the tip!  I forgot to mention though, I'm mostly looking into closed cans because I'll be using these in a dorm and I don't want to bother my roommate, especially at night.  Might even bring them to study in the library.  

 

Although, I don't listen at obnoxious levels, so if there are open cans that don't leak obnoxiously, then I'd probably be interested.  How much do the AD700s leak?
