Which DT-770 Pro, 80-Ohm or 250-Ohm, If it's the 250-Ohm, you will need a headphone amplifier.

Okay so I'm probably going to purchase my first HiFi headphones tomorrow. I'm in between the Sennheiser HD600 and the Grado MS2i.

 

The Grado MS2i seem to intrigue me more for some reason, but I think that the Sennheiser would be more versatile as far my varying choice of genre is concerned.

 

(From Classic Rock to Dubstep)

 

Please help me decide. I know they arent' the most expensive headphones but it's still a major investment for me as I am in college.

 

Thanks again for Head-fi's great community. I plan to stick around.

The HD600 really want an amp behind them to sound their best. Without amp, the MS2i may be your better option

Wow, thanks for the reply so quick! This thread rocks!

So I assume the better soundstage is something that would improve the positioning in games?

If so, I reckon bass from a top of the heap headset will still be great, even if beaten by the Senns. AD 700s it is.

Ahhh. I'm so back and forth on it now. I may eventually get an amp, but for now it will be without. So you think playing .flac files through my Macbook and just regular iPod the MS2i would be the better choice? I'm just scared the MS2i won't play trance/dubstep like the HD600 would. If you think it would, then I'll probably go with the MS2i then. They are actually a little cheaper anyways.

 

I'd love some more feedback on my predicament guys! HD600 or MS2i. I'm buying one or the other tomorrow. 

 

Which one has better durability as I have not heard comparison in that aspect between the two.

Yes, soundstage and positioning for games is tightly related. You will typically want something open backed and leaner in the bass (or at the very least have very fast decay in the bass).

ATs it is then. Thank you very much for your time!

Does anyone know if there is a circumaural headphone that comes close to the HD-25 sound?

post #6789 of 29491

I already own a Pair of Superlux 668Bs, Modded SR60is and a pair of Fischer Audio DBA-02s(Almost Custom Level Performance). My usual audio equipment is a GrubDAC or Rckbx'd 5.5G to Mini3 and I'm looking to expand my headphone collection. I already have an amazing pair of IEMs for on the go, so my criteria for these cans is

 

Around 200$(Hopefully less but If I can get a lot better pair for 250$ I'm willing)

Comfort, I want them to be confortable for long listening.

Open or Closed

 

I listen to everything and lately I have been dipping into speaker designs and built myself a really nice pair of DIY referance bookshelf speakers that have a ribbon tweeter. I'm looking for this clear treble and a beefy kick for when I listen to Dubstep and so on. The clear treble is for when I listen to oldies like Louie Armstrong and Jimmy Hendrix to get an amazingly detailed recording sound.

Anyone got any good reccomendations for a amp/dac for the pc for the hd650?

The HD600 will be difficult to drive loudly and the bass will probably sound a little flabby without a bit of extra grunt behind it. The MS2i is a more sensitive headphone and will go loud much faster.

 

Neither are bass monsters, but the HD600 will have a little more body to the low end while the MS2i will be leaner and a bit snappier (the same applies across most of the spectrum actually; with the MS2i having a significantly higher treble).

 

Both are open, so if you need isolation then neither is suitable, though the HD600 is slightly better in this regard whereas the MS2i is arguably louder on the outside than in.

 

Neither are that flimsy, though neither is particularly durable either.

The slew of DJ headphones are all V shaped in response. I would hesitantly say the Audio Technica M50 comes reasonably close.

Hi,
I've opened a thread about this (sorry about that...) but someone directed me here, so I'll post it here too. So here's the original post and I'll add a few things:
Quote:
Hi,
First of all, I'm sorry if this thread isn't appropriate in this forum.

I've decided that I want to buy a good set of headphones, but I'm very confused with all the different headphones. I'm not an audiophile but I enjoy music very much (I don't know if this is saying something but I really like FLAC quality music) and I'd like to have some headphones that can deliver a good (if not excellent) listening experience. So far I've only had cheap headphones and some decent earphones ( for me at least).

So I would like to buy a pair of headphones that is good but simple. In other words, a pair of headphones (I like the Full Size or Over Ear sizes, I think, but On Ears are okay too as long as they're comfortable) that is:
1. Enjoyable listening to.
2. I can connect it directly to my computer and iPod and still enjoy the music.
3. As portable as possible (that I can wear on the street and look as normal as possible).
4. With little sound leakage (my parents hate loud music and if I listen to headphones with sound leakage in the car they won't be happy).
5. I like listening to strong bass (is that how you phrase it? LOL) but not so much that my heart stops working.
6. Comfortable (obviously).
7. If the headphones are stylish that won't hurt anyone smily_headphones1.gif.

I know there are a lot of demands but not everything is absolutely essential. Right now I'm not even sure if I'll listen to this kind of headphones out of my house at all. My budget is about 350$ max. I know that's not a lot but as I said, I don't think I need to invest thousands of dollars to enjoy my music...smily_headphones1.gif

Thank you very very much and again, if this is not the place, I'm sorry.

Now a few things I have to add are:
I don't want to buy an amp (nor do I really know why you need one for headphones- I think for louder volume?) so I need a pair of headphones that can provide high volume even when connected directly to the iPod/computer smily_headphones1.gif
I generally listen to britpop (Muse mainly), classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd), rock, indie but I also listen to a lot of other genres. The only genre I don't listen to is classical music opera etc. I hope this info helps smily_headphones1.gif

So basically I need some headphones that I can just take out of the box and instantaneously enjoy my music. In the thread I opened the Denon AH-D2000 were suggested. Are they suitable to my taste (I've noticed they're very big and bulky and I don't think I can walk in public with them on my head)?
Also, what do you think of the AiAiAi TMA1? Are they any good for me?

Thank you very much in advance for answering smily_headphones1.gif

Hi 

Since no one answering the post i wrote before this (didnt see the thread title.. sorry about that), 

I'm looking for a closed headphone for music-movies-gaming, budget around 200-250€ or less.

Im going to use them on a Dell XPS15 laptop and (in a close future) iMac/Macbook, so since i cant get a PCI soundcard, im looking also for a dac\amp if needed! (in that price range.. if possible).

 

Please can anyone help me? My old headset broke and i really need to buy another one fast enough.. (loudy work environment :P)

 

Thank you.. and sorry for my english :|

 

PS: there's no headset (cans+boom mic) with a decent sound quality around... am I right? (PC360 maybe but they're open)
