Looking for a pair of full-sized headphones to go with my GR07s

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So after putting it off for a long time, I'm finally ready to throw down the money for a good pair of full-sized headphones. Right now my primaries are my GR07s, which I absolutely love. I love their speedy, controlled, but punchy and full-bodied bass, as well as their overall balance and relatively spacious soundstage (for an IEM anyway). I generally listen for a long period of time, so I'd prefer something that isn't particularly in-your-face or fatiguing. I wouldn't consider the GR07s as being either. In fact, they have a very gentle sound to me, but they can still deliver with authority.

That's the same type of signature I'm looking for in full-sized headphones. I'll be spending about $150, so does anyone have any suggestions? I've heard good things about the M50s, and they sound like something I might be interesting in, but right now that's all I have really been able to come up with.

Thanks in advance.

If you provide us with your budget we can narrow the suggestions down:

 

The M50 is a great can.  They are well built, have a nice and ever slightly bass emphasized sound to them.  To me, over the years, they really do not have a soul.  They just do not keep me listening like my AH-D2000's or my DT990's do.  Don't underestimate the M50, I just have listened to them for years and have many better headphones, but they win their price bracket time and time again.

 

Try these:

 

$80 - $150

Audio Technica ATH-AD700  ( Open, very comfortable, slightly laid back sound )

 

$150 - $200

Sennheiser HD-558 ( Open, clean neutral sounding, comfortable )

 

AKG K 240 MK II ( Closed but not sealed, comfortable, very detailed sound )

Not even neutral bass, but shy bass. Doesn't come close to "full bodied bass" as asked for by the OP.

 

Very best,

Basically looking for the best I can find for about $150. I'd like to stick close to the same type of signature as the GR07s. I like a neutral, accurate signature, or a "boring" signature to some people.
