No amp, the M50. With amp, the Fostex.

Would you say that the HD25 or the MS400 would be plenty of bass for a basshead compared to the HFI 580? Thank you for helping not only me out but all the other daily questions you guys receive.

How much does a Fostex T50rp cost? 

 

Kinda curious, since you said it's way better than M50s.

The MS400 is bassier, more coloured, "fun" sound, odd fit, folds up nicely into case (check my profile for a full review)

 

HD25-1-ii is more crisp, punchier sound, better isolation, better durability

About $75 USD.

Hm, my HD438s are more expensive on Amazon.

How do the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 and the Fostex T50rp compare to the Senn HD598 and 595?

post #5873 of 29490

Different sound signatures but I haven't tried the Fostex, 598/595 so I can't give a full explanation. 

post #5874 of 29490

Gotcha.  I'm leaning towards the ATH-M50 just because they sound like they're incredibly versatile, but I'm still open to suggestions.

post #5875 of 29490

It's best to try the headphones out at a store first. Some of the people on head-fi will ride on the bandwagon and suggest

and claim that these headphones are better than that, even if they haven't tried both on. 

 

 

post #5876 of 29490

That's a very good idea.  The only problem is finding a storefront that still has a good selection and has demo units out and available.  Any suggestions on particular stores?  I live in the Houston area.

post #5877 of 29490

Ah, I'm not in the States so I wouldn't know. I suggest you create another thread for that.

Any large music store should have the M50 available for demo, along with a bunch of Beyers DT770/880/990, AKG K240/270, Sony V6/7506, Senn HD280, Senn HD25-1-ii, Shure 440/840, etc... which are all popular in pro audio.

I'm looking for new headphones. I'm currently using Sony MDR-NC7s, and I'm definitely ready for an upgrade. I've been looking at Sennheiser 280 HD Pro headphones, but I've heard that it's weakest point is rock and metal, which is what I listen to more than anything else. I like headphones with a very full sound, if at all possible. I'm on roughly a $100 budget, and I'm sticking to closed headphones. Any advice? 

post #5880 of 29490

The Sony V6/7506 would be a good choice. Durable, midcentric sound, decent isolation, and below budget.
