ATH-M50 vs. Ultrasone HFI 580 vs. Shure SRH840

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

Honestly, which one would be better for listening to House/ Dubstep/ Electro/ RnB music on and do a bit of music producing too. I really want a good pair of headphones that will last me a long time. Any other suggestions within the price range would work too. Thank you

Long lasting headphones:

 

HFI-580 can break easily, I've seen bad aftermath pics

SRH-840 are kinda cheaply built. The pads won't last long also

 

M50's are known for their build

 

M50's are my choice for you. Good sound fro dubstep, great comfort and great build.

There's a bunch of threads on this...that's why you're not getting responses.

 

Get the M50's. They will fit your needs fine.

Honestly - where do you come up with this drivel?

I do find M50's very capable for House/ Dubstep/ Electro/ RnB music..

I think they sound great if you EQ them and they feel that they will last for a lifetime if you don't abuse them too much..

Today i am expecting DJ1 so as to compare them with M50's..

So i believe if you wait a little bit i could share with you my impressions..

I STRONGLY recommend the HFI-580 for electronic. The M50 may be 'good' in that genre, but given your choices I say FORGET IT. The HFI-580 are way better for that kind of music.

I have a comparison review if you need it, in my sig smily_headphones1.gif

^This. I have read tons of reviews raving about how well-built and sturdy the SRH840's are.

+1

 

There are a lot of reviews you can find praising the HFI-580's for electronica/bassy music.

In this order (IMO),

SRH840 (they're in no way shape or form cheaply built-thats ridiculous, they're Shures, if you know anything about audio you would know Shure is one of the most highly regarded audio brands in the world)

as far as ultrasones go,

580's are wonderful however, you might want to check out the DJ1 Pro as it's an excellent headphone as well and would suit your application well. Better, i believe, than the 580's.

And we all know how I feel about M50's, so I'm not even going to bother commenting as I know they have a huge following.

Not trying to be a dick... but could you really not find another thread on this? Did you even try to search? These three are VERY popular on this forum and it isn't hard at all to find some comparisons.

For their sound quality, not for their build quality. Other than newer models, most Shure headphones feel flimsy compared to other cans of comparable prices.

Just sayin... same people helping with the same stuff. I can't tell you how many recent threads I've helped out with for noobs asking "bassy headphones under $___".
