Sennheiser HD555 and electronic music

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am looking for some good yet inexpensive full size headphones. I listen to a lot of techno and some rap and dubstep. The 555s are available for $85 on Amazon and seem like a good choice but are there any other ones in this price range that would do better?

 

 

EDIT: I looked into the Sennheiser brand and they have a DJ series which I would assume would be more for base and electronic music? So should I be looking at some 200 series instead of 500 series?

I am not familiar with whats available in the US market in that price range, but having owned the HD595s I wouldn't recommend them for electronic music at all. I think the 555s are pretty similar to the 595s.

I've read some good things about the Denon DJ headphones.  Should be much better than the HD555s anyways.  Or you could always go for the ATH M50s
