It's been a while...Need help deciding on a set of cans.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey HF,

 

I'm in need of a new set of headphones for use @ work.  It's been a while since my last headphone purchase, so I'm a bit out of the loop.

 

Criteria are as follows:

- Under $300 total (preferably around $250)

- Closed

- Around the ear

- Amp not necessary

 

2 headphones come to mind from back when I was on Head-Fi daily...DT 770s (80 Ohm) and the A-900s.  Did Beyer pull the newer versions of the DT 770s?  The only ones I saw on their site are the old ones.  The T70 looks similar to what the newer 770s looked like, yet costs quite a bit more...hummm.

 

I also like the plush leather pads (like the ones on the Beats Pro...crap cans I know, but they are damned comfortable).  This is simply a want and not a requirement.  I figure if I get the DT 770s, I can always change out the pads to the J$ leather pads.  I'm unsure if there are any options available on the A-900s in this respect.

 

I listen to pretty much everything except country and classical.

 

To give a little history on my experiences and preference, I used to own HD650s, HD25 IIs, HD595s, SR60s, Super-Fi 5 Pros, E3cs, etc. + bunch of cables + a few amps and various other accessories.  Out of everything I sold, I could not part with my E500s and Hornet M...and still have them today.

 

Would love any suggestions, as I have no idea what new good headphones are out.  Thanks ahead.

 

 

Joe

Heya,

The DT770 would be a good choice. The T70 is a tesla tech powered DT770 half-to-high-end model.

But you said plush leather pads. So I think the D2000 would be your headphone.

Very best,
