Help on more portable headphones

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I already have IEM's, but I really started to dislike putting them in my ear. Are their any "portable" headphones around $200-300 that have a a warmer tone to them? I had the Shure srh940, but I felt like they were a little too bright for me and the bass was not where I wanted it to be. I am mainly looking for closed btw. I will mostly be using them with an ipod and my Macbook pro. I mostly listen to house/dance/dubstep and rock


So far I am looking at the Sennheiser HD25-1


Any other suggestions?

HD25-1 ii might be a little bright but not as much as the 940, they are a senn so they are pretty laid back and darker then most cans.


Good for portable too

ESW9 will be warmer than HD25.

Can anyone comment on how the beyer dt1350 and the m50? I am also looking at these, but more ideally something about the same size as the hd25

I love, LOVE the overall sound of the DT1350. However, they really need to be amped to achieve full potential. When I first got them I listened to them amped and subsequently was not too impressed when plugged directly into my iPhone 4. Plus apparently I have a freakishly large head as they're not very comfortable so I can't listen to them for more than an hour or two at a time. Despite all that I just can't get over the sound so I use them as my work cans.

Okay. Thanks for the input. It is so hard for me to decide right now, as I love the size of the Sennheiser HD-25, but looking at the M50 price makes me lean towards it more. I am not looking to carry an amp with me where ever I go, portability is the main factor.

Also, are their any suggestions that would sound kind of like my Monster Turbine Pro Copper? I enjoy the sound of these being somewhat more towards the warmer side and great bass, but not getting to the point where it is muddy. I feel like the m50 would actually fit this criteria more than the hd-25. Any comments?

Take a look at the Denon AH-D1100.


Circumaural, closed, portable and doesn't need amplification.


They are also great for your musical preferences, this coming from a fellow dubstep fan.
