Looking into buying a new pair of headphones.

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I am looking into buying a new set of headphones. I had the aviators for a bit but i returned them because of the massive sound leakage. I listen to a variety of music including classical, trance, dubstep, and power full choir songs. I plan to use them with my phone and my tablet to i don't really want a set that i need a amp for. I will use them to listen to music but i do video editing too and i want to start editing audio. Right now i have a set of v-moda vibes. The new headphones HAVE to be pretty tough because i am pretty rough on my tech. My budget is pretty big but i am trying to save some money so i am going to set it at $250. Thanks for helping! k701smile.gif

Start out with an m50 search and go from there based upon comparisons and impressions.

I was hoping someone would give me a few definitive choices and i could go from there. After a bit more reading i decided i probably WILL buy a DAC bit first i need a good set of cans. Also... Please make sure they dont have a lot of sound leakage.

Heya,

 

Sounds like you need something that can sort of do everything, so more neutral perhaps.

 

Check out:

 

Fischer Audio FA-003

Shure 840 & 940

Ultrasone Pro 550

Sennheiser HD380 Pro

BeyerDynamic DT660

Audiotechnica M50


Very best,

And i will be taking these with me everywhere so a kelver cord (Replaceable) and strong construction is a MUST.

The 550's are not for me and i dont want everyone within 5 miles to hear what i am playing. (m50's)

Does that mean that everybody within 5 miles of you hear what you're listening to on the M50s?
