That's the worst comparison I've ever seen/heard in the world.

 

How many impactful products like iPhones/iPods has Monster released in the cable/audio world?

how much of an improvement is the ad900 compared to the ad700?
is it worth more than 2 times the price of the ad700 considering its performance?

For me, the difference was pretty small. Slightly better bass, slightly less grainy highs. It's up to you if you feel the differences are worth the extra money.

 

If you didn't like the AD700, you still wont like the AD900.

I might not become an audiophile that will spend 1grand on a headphone and I don't have the best ears in the world since I got tinnitus and sometimes what resembles hyperacusis when I am stressed or when I am sleep deprived.

 

So I'm searching for a good pair of phones to use on the move. maybe a bit more focused on the bass but not boomy ( I would say just a bit less then the M50 in term of bass) and closed but not completely sealed.Easy to power from an Ipod touch would be nice too. my budget is 150-220CAD

 


I would actually highly consider an Ultrasone since their S-Logic is designed to give you the same apparent volumes but at lower pressure levels, which will help with the tinnitus. Get one that isn't overly bassy (so basically stay away from the HFi580 and Pro750/900). Maybe a nice middle range like the HFi780. Isolation is good, but not crazy good like the HD280 or DT770 so you'll still be able to hear things around you.

Ill start off by explaining that when it comes to headphones i honestly don't have a clue, Ive done some research in the different types of headphones last night on google for about 6 hours straight but in the end it just gave myself a major headache haha

Basically my situation is...
I watch allot of movies on my TV in my bedroom, mostly at night due to the hours i work and its soo annoying when you miss the little bits in a film because you gotta keep the TV volume low... mad.gif So i started thinking its time for some really good quality headphones that will make it sound like i have a full surround sound system in my room. As you can imagine the main use for headphones is to do with music and its quite difficult to figure out whats best for watching bluray films.

So basically i would really appreciate your help with a few things that's doing my head in..
Firstly, are wireless headphones really bad compared with wired ones? as i would prefer not having a super long cable running across me room.
Second, Which ones are best for around to £200 mark
Third, Do i need anything else other than headphones to maximize the potential of the headphones, I read something about Surround sound processors?
Also is there a big difference between open and closed headphone sound quality as id prefer no leakage but I'm not overly fussed

I appreciate that headphones will never be as good as a full on surround sound system but i really want them to come close. These will be used for the sole purpose of watching films not much music or anything.

Pleaseeeee help me, its really doing my head in and would love some help. Sorry if this has been posted Many times before but as this is 500+ pages long i got bored of reading ha also i found a few things with the search bar but they were pretty old posts. + If i have missed anything i do appologise, remember im a total newb when it comes to this, Cheers! L3000.gif

 

Wireless can be ok... but keep in mind that you're paying a lot of money for the wireless part and not for the sound quality. Some of the newer stuff using Kleer is ok, and for an average consumer it'll be fine. The top of the line Senn RS180 gets a lot of good press.

 

For purely movies, the Denon D2000 was already mentioned. I also repeat an Ultrasone recommendation as they have nice staging which can be a little off for music and gaming at times, but for movies it works very well.

Just one more thing, these Denon AH D2000 have been out for quite a while..
Is there not a newer better alternative?

Or with headphones is newer not always better?

Haha apologies, remember i honestly don't have a clue what im on about as I'm sure you can tell eek.gif

Thanks again =]

 


There's the old adage of "if it aint' broke, don't fix it". My favourite headphones right now are the vintage AKG K240 Sextett. For a real champ that seems to survive the test of time, there's the venerably Beyerdynamic DT48 that's been around forever.

So now I want suggestions, I want that ample soundstage in the middle of a room full of music expirience, sorry I'm not versed in the way of describing sound yet.

 

I need suggestions for head phones within 100-300 dollars that have the widest and best soundstage (I don't want to give up quality for wideness so a good compromise that favors quality would be best.) 

 

Bass doesn't need to be huge,overwhelming, or messy just audible and enjoyable and tight to a reasonable extent.

 

I'd like them to be circumaural and closedback ( I know this is hard but mention some wide soundstage options for closed headphones at this price point please.)

 

I'd also like to know the best open-backed options, incase I see myself in the necesity of a more ample soundstage than I can get from a closedback once I go test the suggested options.

 

Thanks Guys!

 

(I listen to 50% Rock and  40% Electronica, and 10% Orchestral Music)

 


It's difficult to get really wide soundstage in a closed headphone. The Audio Technica A900 does a good job (the A700 has too much resonance which makes the stage feel like an arena). The Fostex T50rp with a bit of damping does a decent job as well. Not well known around here, the Beyerdynamic DT250 is also decent in soundstage.

Not really. I generally say you want to move up two steps when considering an upgrade along the same product line. You can find the flagship AD2000 for around $350-400 used.

What's the budget across all of those? My suggestion is the Astro MixAmp, but I have no point of reference on price.

SORRY FOR THE YELLING IM JUST IN A RUSH ILL APPRECIATE IF YOU GIVE THE GUIDANCE THAT I NEED.. THANKS

post #7587 of 29490

It won't come any faster if you yell about it. If anything it will force people not to respond. Most people around here don't have much experience with earbuds, and even less with anything Yuin that isn't the PK1. You might be on your own here. 

 

Try the portables forum. I know they have a thread like this. For the most part this thread is for full sized cans.

@Armaegis:

 

I'm seriously considering purchasing the 880s now. I need to head over the local music place with my entry level headphone amp and see how these babies sound.  I wouldn't mind a bit more air in my music, but that'd mean that I have to listen my music during the day or move my man cave (which is happening anyway in a few months)  They need a better store than audiocubes or the audition areas of JR or BH to try out headphones.  At least JR let you hold them and mess around.  So it's bass but with fun ... I like it.  I wanna try them now.

 

thanks, (again)

Also, I would go with the PK3.
