Rock listeners, Metal Fans .... Please help this newbie here

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 

       Hi all :) 

1)   I listen Metal and Rock music  
2)   I am student.    
3)   I want Over The Ear headphones with good sound isolation and descent sound quality.    
4)   My budget is estimated around 60$ but it may expand easily if something good comes up over the horizon.


So here's what I would like to see from you:


Best (in your opinion) for metal/rock music over the ear headphones with price up to 75$:


1)    Most recommended suggestion
2)    Second most recommended suggestion
3)    Third most recommended suggestion


Best (in your opinion) for metal/rock music over the ear headphones with price up to 150$

1)    The only and most recommended suggestion in this group



________________________________________________________________________________________


* I want only 3 suggestions for "Group up to 75$" and only single one for "Group up to 150$"
** I am willing to get 4,5 replies and it is clear that if all of them suggest only one competitor for the "150$ Group" - this is it.


        Thanks to all who will cooperate me

Heya,

 

Do not look at the Skullcandies.

 

Do however, look at the Sony ZX700.

 

Very best,

How do the Sony MDR-ZX700 compare to Sennheiser HD280 or the 201 ?

post #9 of 33

You want something that kicks ass for rock and will set you back a mere $50.. Look at my read... I listen to slayer, metallica, Pantera  ect and nothing including my Zx700 touches this can for rock metal.. http://www.head-fi.org/t/567900/09-m50-reincarnated-the-kicker-hp541-a-headfi-first-duo-take#post_7695234 .. I can't speak for the sennheisers mentioned but.. I truly doubt those will better for rock/ metal..

post #10 of 33

i would vote for grado sr80 for rock music 

Not much bass , but they are very clear. guitars sound awesome on these

post #11 of 33

well. I have the HD438. Pretty low end senns. Love them, not for rock, only for alternative, indie, stuff like that.

This.  There are dozens of threads just like this one and you'll see Grado is the most common suggestion.

Grado isn't a good suggestion.

Grados offer no sound isolation.

 

Similarly the Superlux is semi-open. It offers some isolation, but not as much as a fully sealed headphone.

 

I don't know how much the Creative Aurvana Live! isolates, but it's fully closed and probably blocks sound better than the Superlux. If the OP can shop at U.S. Amazon, it's on sale for $60.

op says he needs good isolation. Grados are not good for isolation (every1 will hear you, and you will hear everything around you).

Thank you all for the help !!!  

I guess I have gathered enough information and it is up to me and my inner sense what I will purchase. It will surely be one of these:

 

Sony MDR-ZX700 for 77$    vs     Creative Aurvana Live! for 60$    vs    Kicker HP541 for 50$
