Heya,

 

The Ultrasone 580's would be excellent for that. Well under budget. The DT770 pro would be my second choice there if you want increased comfort at the cost of less portability.

 

Very best,

hey malveaux THANX a lot :) for response

why are the hi-fi 580 your first choice and not the beyerdynamic ?

Depending on how much bass he wants I would choose the Ultrasone HFI-580, HFI-780, or the AT M50.

 

The 780 will have the best sound quality overall and the most detail, but it lacks the powerful punchy bass of the 580. The M50's bass is similar to the 580, except it sounds more boomy and doesn't have as much impact.

Heya,

 

Because they're bassy and have great detail, energy and drive easy (ie, no amp needed). The DT770 Pro's need an amp to really fully come to life. So that increases costs. The 580's come with a case, detachable cord (error), are portable, fold, etc. The DT770 Pro just comes as a headphone, no case, no detachable cord, they don't swivel, no folding. But the DT770 Pro has comfy velour pads. I found it to be more comfortable to wear for long hours. But I also favor velour pads, some people prefer leather pads. So that's more of a personal thing, and less objective.

 

Very best,

They do not...

 

The PRO 900 is awesome and they would probably be worth it if the sound signature is to his liking. A lot of people don't like it though, so I would try them out before buying.

i know it is better to try headphones before but in belgium the music shop are small and don't have a lot of choice and the ultrasone are not sell in belgium so he would probably buy his headphone on thomann.de :) a good site of music here in europe

If the "xonar stx" the OP mentions is a Xonar Essence STX, it will provide plenty of power.

You can of course recommend the PRO 900, it's one of the best bass headphones you're going to get.

I'm not very familiar with the DT770, but I can tell you that the PRO 750 is basically a more balanced version of the PRO 900. The 900 can sound really bass heavy and unnatural sometimes, but you might like that. Considering the price difference it's probably also more detailed.

Are you aware that there are a couple versions of the 770 Pro out there? You can find a really great guide here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/513393/guide-sonic-differences-between-dt770-dt990-models-more
