You just said what I wanted to say as well. E7 can be used us a standalone amp.

I go to college and 40% of the students either own Monster Beats or Bose AE2's, and I will not settle for a pair of either of those.

 

Three headphones I'm considering are the AKG K240 MKII, Audio-Technica ATH M50, and Beyerdynamic dt770 Pro

 

I am on a budget of around $200, preferably less.  I listen to mainly alternative (RHCP, Sublime), folk and soft rock (Mumford and Sons, Coldplay), as well as occasional techno, pop, dubstep, and even classical.

 

I'm looking for a balanced sound spectrum and solid, dynamic and deep bass, but not overpowering or hugely emphasized bass.  I want a decent soundstage to exist, but, as I'm not a classical enthusiast, it doesn't need to be vast like an open reference can.

 

The K240 MKII is available on amazon for $140, the ATH M50 for $144, and the DT770 Pro's for $170

 

I am aware that the K240 would leak sound, but otherwise, are these headphones very similar in sound and value? Or is there a clear, outstanding choice based on the above prices and my listening preferences?  Is there a better headphone out there that comes to mind?

 

Thank you so much!  I will answer any other questions if it would help with recommendations.


 


Just as a quick note, I think you can get the M50S (the only difference is a straight cord) for ~$115 on Amazon at the moment, in case that factors into your choice.

 

Also, is portability an issue at all for you? The M50s fold up ok, but the other seem like they might be pretty inconvenient to lug around campus all day, if you want to use them portably. You also might want to look into the Shure SRH 840s as well...

Not sure where you got that from - or was it a guess?

 

Unfortunately it is very difficult to find the iPod G4 output specs (closest I got was 30mW per channel - not sure if accurate) - while the E7's specs are readily available:

150mW into 16 Ohm, 16mW into 300 Ohm

 

What I can say (previously owning an E7) is that it most definitely is both a DAC and an amp.  The amp - while not overly powerful, and IMO the weak point of the E7 - is still more powerful than the built in amp on the iPods.  I know this because I tried powering my SRH840 (at the time I owned them) from both the iPod direct, and then from the E7, in order to do my E7 review.  On the iPod (from memory) I needed about 65% on the volume slider, while on the E7 (using a LOD), anything more than 20/60 was basically to loud.

 

in reply to HoodRanger - if you are only using your iPod as source (not using a PC or laptop), then you don't need the DAC.  If you want to experience what an amp will do - but don't want to break the bank, try either the Fiio E11 or a Cmoy.  But a HD598 doesn't really need an amp - not from an iPod anyway.

Budget: sub $100

 

Type: Closed

 

amplifier: i would prefer not to use one. However, if it will improve the sound dramatically or is required for a specific pair of cans I will get one.

 

What I want:

 

Great highs and mid range. I prefer natural bass nothing too overpowering. I suppouse I am looking for a good all around cans.

 

Type of music I listen to:

 

alternative rock, metal, classical, pop

 

Devices I will be using it with:

 

Laptop ( mainly) and ipod nano 3rd gen.

 

The headphones need to be comfortable for at least 3-4 hours.

 

I am not an audiophile  in regards lossless formats flac etc. I will be using mp3 for the most part. I just want the best bang for my buck.

 

I am open to all brands.

 

Thanks

post #9845 of 29490

I'd say FA-006. They are so good for accoustics, rock, country, jazz, opera, and while still good for another genres. Great mid range and very tight extended bass, treble is there too.

 

Any neutral cans will be good all-rounders.

I haven't heard it myself, but I've heard that the Koss DJ100s are excellent sub-$100 all-rounders, and have seen it compared favorably to more expensive models like the M50s. Ask around more about them though.

Interesting. I looked through some US store and I can't seem to find them.

I will look into these.

 

Also do you guys have any amp recommendations? I don't want anything expensive or big. carrying a brick sized amp is the last thing I want/need.

Geez you guys, one day goes by and there's a hojilllion* posts... 

 

*mathematically half a bazillion

So, I'm looking for the most balanced, clear & detailed headphone I can find under $300.

 

Considering:

 

SRH840

AKG K701

SRH940

 

Suggestions?


If closed, the 940. If open, the K701 (this one would like an amp)

As i said, I will be listening to a lot of bass heavy electronica musical genres with this headphones. But would also like something that is a good all rounder for other genres of music.

 

Headphones that are on my list that have sparked some interest to me are:

Sorted by order I've looked them up in.

1) Denon 2000

2) Denon 5000

3) Ultrasone Pro 900

4) Ultrasone HFI-580

5) Beyerdynamic DT 990

6) AKG K701

7) Beyerdynamic DT 770

8) Beyerdynamic DT 880

9) Ultrasone HFI-780

10) Audio Techinica ath-m50

11) Sony MDR-XB1000

 

I think that's all of them. Maybe there are some others I should look up also that I'm missing?

 

Anyways, as you can see... my list is getting bigger and bigger the more I browse this website. I only looked up the Beyerdynamics since yesterday, and everything afterwards. I must say tho, that a lot of what I read about the Beyerdynamics did interest me a lot, besides the fact they having overly high treble.

 

I'll repost my list here of what I'm looking for:

1) Sound Quality - (Nice tight & controlled Bass, with good and balanced mids, and highs, or slightly recessed, but good mids)

2) Should be a good all-rounder as I'll be using them for everything.

3) Comfort - (Should be able to wear them for hours at a time)

4) Low Noise Leakage preferred, but would prefer best clarity also.

5) Should be efficient enough to run without a AMP. 32 Ohms or Less. If not, what amp to use with them?

6) No budget. But would like to keep it no more then $500 for my first good set of headphones.

7) Should be durable enough to last a long time. Metal > Plastic

8) Should also be able to play this sample without flubbing, tight, controlled, and clear.

 

 

Feel free to recommend something even if it's not on my list.

 

 

Also should I be aiming to run 32 Ohms or less? I hear most portable amps like E7 can't power 250 Ohms that well? And I noticed the specs say 1W at 32 Ohms, and 18 mW at 300 Ohms. Looks like output power drops rapidly as Ohms increase.

 

Brief rundown which may or may not make your choice easier...


1&2 - comfy, good all-rounder, but leaky and poor isolation

3&4 - very bassy

5 - very V shaped, fully open, wants amp

6 - fully open, not enough thump for electronica, wants amp

7 - excellent isolation, very bassy, wants amp

8 - good balanced sound, but leaks, wants amp

9 - good isolation, balanced sound

10 - better isolation, mild V shaped sound

11 - comfy but very big, average isolation

so now im looking for a replacement. ive been listening to a lot of monitor audio speakers (yamaha HS80 and makie 852 were favourites, KRK and yamaha MSP5/7's least favourite)  and muchly prefer them to HI-FI. i like how flat and detailed they sound, so now im after some flat detailed headphones.

i have an ibasso D10 amp, which i use all the time. 

the top of my budget is set at £300. 

portability isnt a problem, they wont be leaving the house. 


It's possible you have burnt out diodes on the right channel. If you're feeling adventurous, you can try disconnecting them. Open up the left cup and you'll see a small circuit board. Unscrew it and carefully turn it around and you should see 4 diodes (and a couple plain jumpers). With some wire cutters, carefully snip the diodes. You can just snip one side so you could feasibly solder them back together if you decide to. 

 

For another headphone, how about an AKG K701/Q701? Or Perhaps a Beyerdynamic DT880. These might want a little more power than a D10 though (I've listened to those both through a D10 and while it was good, a little more power brings them up).

Should be around ~$60 price range, very bumpable to $70, $80 should be avoided unless it's the only choice, not above $80.

IEMs isn't really an option for me because my right ear is shaped wierdly, and I just don't like them. 

I've taken the Koss DJ Pro 100s and Sennheisers HD 448s into consideration, and they both seem like very good candidates, but I'd like to have a decision from someone more knowledgeable.

We both do pretty much everything on our computers - Movies, Music, games  and a little bit of casual music production.

 

+I currently use Steelseries Sibera but they're super uncomfortable.

 

+Willing to spend up to £160 

 

+I've come across:

 

AudioTechnica ATH-M50

 

Audio-Technica ATH AD700

 

just watched a review on the ATH m50 while watching this and he said the sound stage isnt good for gaming? can someone explain this to me?

 

Thanks

 

 

A closed headphone generally has a very "boxed in" feel and is not as wide feeling as an open one. The M50 in my opinion is particularly bad for feeling crowded in. That said, the M50 has a popular sound with strong bass punch and a mildly spiked treble. 

 

The AD700 is one of the most frequent recommendations for gaming, offering very good positional accuracy. However, for movies and music it might lack bass oomph for the average consumer.

Please don't ask why.


Monster Beats Solo HD were quite possibly one of the most atrocious things I had ever listened to. They made the Studio and Pro sound good in comparison.

After waiting for weeks its finally come down in price and I'm having trouble pulling the trigger lol.


You could always aim for the HD600 or try and find the cheaper discontinued 580 which is basically the 600 but with a cheaper grill and cable (which you can get off ebay for $20). The 580 used to be found for about $100, though I'm not too sure what it's current prices are like.

I'm willing to spend up to £130 and was originally going to go for HD595s (familiarity and all that) but I thought it'd be a better idea if I just came and asked you people what I should get. I'll be using them for everything - music, movies, TV and gaming. I tend to listen to a lot of metal, progressive rock and dubstep.

 

Any input is appreciated!


If you know the family and love the sound, don't mess with what works for you otherwise you might just be disappointed. Go with the 558/595/598.

I have the option of returning these cans and replacing them immediately with the Denon 1100, or sitting tight for a month until I can get the D2000.  I need closed cans (not portable, I need them for isolation) - and from all the research I've done, the Denon's seem like the only options for me.  I don't like an overly bright sound, but I do like detail.  And I enjoy deep bass...tight and punchy...not where it becomes overpowering (somewhat boomy / muddy like I'm experiencing with the 770's).  Any thoughts on this?  I'm just curious what others might do in this predicament.  Thanks.


The Denon D2000 has terrible isolation. The D1100 will suit much better in that regard.

I'm not a fan of the Beyer family, but I thought the DT880/250 was actually quite good and not sibilant. Granted, I also amped it with a Bottlehead Crack. 

 

How about a Shure 940 or AKG K701/Q701?

thanks anyone who replies :)

Craig

 

 

So you want them for gaming, isolation, and you listen mainly to metal and rock... 

 

The D2000 does not isolation well, the D1100 is better. The Ultrasone Pro650 is good, and also consider an HFi680/780. The Beyer DT770 might be too bassy and it wants an amp anyways. The Senns I mentioned earlier are all pretty good all-rounders and have very strong isolation.

I listen 50% dance/techno/hiphop and 50% rock. Also gonna use them on movies (which is almost as important to me as music listening) and gaming purposes. Sounds a bit confusing situation, for me at least.

 

After 2 days research i think i have narrowed down to these competitors:

 

  • Beyerdynamic DT 880 (230 euros)

  • Beyerdynamic DT 990 (230 euros)

  • Denon AH-D2000 (230 euros)

  • Audio-Technica ATH-AD900 (260 euros)

  • Sennheiser HD600 (250 euros)

  • Sennheiser HD650 (290 euros)

 

These are all in same price range in Europe. If u have better suggestion to my needs, I'm open to hear that too.. :)

 

I'm going to DIY/buy some DAC/amp for them, gonna connect it to PC via USB, if u have any recommends on that side, i'd love to hear that too. Total price shouldn't go much over 400 euros. 

 

Thanks in advance, Jere

 

Edited: Forgot DAC


I would recommend the Beyer DT880 or the Senn HD600/650, paired with a DIY Bottlehead Crack amp (w/Speedball upgrade). Get whatever budget dac fits within budget after that.

The types of music that I listen to are dubstep - dnb, alternative and classic rock, vocal trance-edm. 

I was looking at the HD439 ( 70$ ) and HD449(80$).

Can you recommend me other brands/models?


If you thought the HD228 bass was too much, then the 439 will be too much as well. The 449 might be better, or maybe the Senn PX200-ii for something that's also portable.

The Senns all tend to sound fairly similar unless you're quite familiar with the family. That said, if you're really digging the look of the 598 then just be patient for a sale... or try your luck at painting rolleyes.gif

I have been looking at the AiAiAi TMA-1, Sennheiser HD 25 1 II, and Vmoda crossfade m-80 but not sure as I am a consumer and don't know much about really high end audio equipment so hopefully you guys. Can help me out. I will be using my laptop and desktop computer to listen to music as well as my iPhone any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.


For balance, the HD25-1-ii or M80 are good choices. Check my profile for a review comparing those headphones...

full sized headphones: Senn HD280, Beyer DT770

earpad headphones: B&W P5, Senn HD25, Beyer DT1350/T50p

Soundwise out of those, I would pick the AKG K240. If you don't mind going vintage (and getting an amp, though a receiver works fine), an AKG K240 Sextett is fantastic.

Hello all,

   I know this isn't quiet the right place to ask but I didn't want to start a post in the "Portable Amp" thread until I knew that was what I was after, and this is for new comes to get guidance so I'll start here.

I have just burnt it my first quality headphones ( Sr225i ) and I'm really happy with the purchase for both the computer and iPhone. For the computer I have a Streamer II already waiting for a similar priced valve amp currently in transit, so this question is just for the iPhone for now. I use the iPhone at 1/3 volume on the slider while sitting in the quiet garage working on the dirtbike or RC cars, and in loudness that is just right for me, but I can only lightly hear some of the background details that I would really like to be able to hear a little clearer without having to pay much attention.

My question is, how can I go about brightening up those background details without making the overall loudness louder? If an amp was the ticket, something like the Headroom total airhead at $140 posted is my maximum budget

 

Thanks in advanced,

Michael.

post #9850 of 29490

Well I decided to start off my audiophile collection with the Audio Technica ATH-M50S. Google suggested B&H (which I heard of from here) for it having the cheapest price of $114.99! So I just purchased it. Should arrive Wednesday.

 

I'm surprised the straight version is cheaper then the coiled, as I probably would hate the coiled as I like to very rarely use the full length on my cheap Sony MDR-V150s (6'8") to possibly reach something without taking them off, and think the coil would only get in the way, and cause too much pressure on the wire, and or maybe possibly pull itself from the output device from the coil pressure.

 

Anyways I'll be powering them from my computer, and iPhone 4. I hear they should run just fine unamped, or that a amp such as a Fiio E5 will add hardly anything extra. So should i be fine without an amp?

 

 

I'll probably add a Ultrasone (for more balanced sound) and Beyerdynamic (if only for movies and gaming) to my collection later on. (especially if any goes on sale)

 

Thanks for the comparison also Armaegis, that helped eliminate 1 or 2 Beyers, and AKG.

post #9851 of 29490

Thanks for the responce, as for sound quality I like bass so i want great bass that doesnt overpower the mids and highs but I also want great highs and mids unless that's almost impossible to all have do then could you reccoend the closest thing to what I am looking for between the $300 to $500 price range. I would like good isolation but if there isn't anything with the sound I am looking for with good isolation than that's fine aswell. I mainly listen to electronic, dubstep, house, rap, and hip hop.

What, in your opinion, makes the K240's better?  Are they more fun to listen to or are they just more accurate and revealing?  Do they leak just as much as a fully open headphone or is the leakage significantly less?

Audio-technica ATH-T200 vs Sennheiser hd 202 II / 203? which would you choose? for which music genre which is better? maybe there are better headphones for same amount of money?

For about the same price, I would say go for the Porta Pros.  However, if you need closed, I would say the HD202 is pretty good from experience.  They are a bit boxed in feeling, but any closed headphone at that price point would be.

what you mean, boxed? I heard ATH-T200 is very comfortable, don't really care about portability, must be closed. what are pros/cons hd202 against ath-t200?
