I'm looking to buy some new headphones (surprise, surprise!), and I'd like to hear your more-experienced suggestions.
I listen primarily to drum and bass, electro, and other electronic music, and I'll be using these 'phones to produce in those styles as well. I am also thinking about getting my very own DJ decks, so I may have need for these headphones to be versatile in that way as well.
Annnd... my price range is about 160-200 dollars. So far I've been looking at Allen & Heath Xone XD-53s, Audio Technica ATH-M50s, and some Beyerdynamics... any ideas? (:
how big of a factor is price? you can get the m50's for about 100 and while you will have to EQ them a bit to get the same bass (they are very neutral) as a lot of the beyers for the money you get some real nice phones. if price is NOT factor then the beyer DT770 pro 80 ohm will be your best choice. if you want to move away from AT and beyer I have a huge list of bass headphones I can suggest.
Price is not so much a factor... I'd like to stay in that range, but my concern is getting some good headphones. (:
I'd be very happy to go with a pair of Beyers... another question, though. Would it be better to get the 880 Pros as opposed to the 770s? I know there's a lot of debate concerning the 770s-880s-990s, and that the 880s are a little upwards of 200 bucks, but I'm a little flexible - just looking for a great sound for mixing/producing as well as listening.
