[HELP] Which Headphones to buy

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 

Hello

 

Im currently deciding on buying a pair of headphones for my self

 

I have the Monster Turbines and Brainwavz M2 earphones and i love the bass on both.

 

I do like bass because i listen to a lot of pop music.

 

Currently i have the Monster Beats by Dr Dre Studio in mind but it is a expensive headphone.

 

So im here to ask for some other recommendations of Headphones

 

I looked at the multiple headphone reviews thread and also found the Audio Tehnica ATH 50 quite interesting too

 

Please also suggest someother headphones for me

 

Thank you

Okay, so you're looking for full-sized headphones?  You should've posted it in the other board then.

 

Also, even though the Beats are expensive, it doesn't make them good...they're quite looked down upon around here due to their crappiness-to-price ratio.  What exactly are you looking for here though?  An upgrade to your Beats?

I'd strongly recommend you think twice about getting the Beats, they're pretty awful for their price.  And honestly, I don't particularly like the way they look either. :P

 

If you want something that looks pretty awesome, you could check out the Phiaton MS 400, or even something like the Skullcandy Aviators.  Don't think there are many reviews for the Aviators yet though...but you might as well check them out and see if you like how they look/sound.

For full size in that price range you should consider the Audio Technica ATH-M50's.   Try posting in "Headphones (fullsize)".  You'll get a lot of people +1'ing the M50's.

The have aviators in Apple stores for auditioning.  Also the $150 VModas.  I only tried them for a minute or so since I'm not in the market for dynamic headphones in that price range and they weren't awful sounding.  I didn't listen long enough to form a stronger opinion than that.  That's pretty much my opinion on Beats as well, although I think they're ugly.

The Sennheiser HD25-1ii has to be considered. Classic headphone, excellent build, quality bass and lots of fun.

Suggest you start a new thread in Headphones (full size) like MJS242 said above.. Unless you want the klipsch image one, since that is a Portable Headphone

The Aviators have weak bass..  shockingly so..    I was comparing them to my aiaiai tracks instore and even with the low isolation of the tracks, the bass ripped Aviators to shreds..  but the Aviators sound good in their own more flat signature

 

 

Sony MDR xb700 or xb1000 for bass..  wait will you be bringing these out????
