Best $100 Closed Full Size Headphones?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm heading off to college in late september and I'm probably going to get 110 bucks for some new closed cans. I've ahd the ATH-AD700's and I like em, but I'd like some full size closed cans for music. Any help?

 

Here's the list of recommendations I've gotten on another forum.


DT770 80ohm (Great bass, comfy, high quality)
Ultrasone HFI580, HFI550, Pro550, Pro650, DJ1, DJ1 Pro (Great bass, good isolation)
Alienware Ozam 5 (rebadged HFI 580), Ozma 7
Shure srh840 (good bass as well)
ATH-M50

 

Any thoughts?

If you need a closed can, just BECAUSE you need a closed, just go cheap OP if you want to.

 

Shure would sound closest to your AD700's

 

Beyer, ultrasone, m50 the rest are bassy and be a big change.

 

get the shure, you'll love them

Oh well I'd like a change of cans. Something closed, more expensive and better. Thanks for the suggestion on the Shures. I'll take that in mind. I'm not sure if I want even or bassy cans.

Well, then you can go balanced that would give you a good taste of lows and highs. Some EQing to balanced cans produce lows of highs of your choice.

 

Sony MDR-V6 are good balanced cans and I use them as my "heavy bass" cans with a little EQ change in my setting.
