Bose, Beyerdynamic and Sennheiser

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Sup guys,

i wanna buy a headphone, but i'm between:

- Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350;

- Bose QuietComfort 15

- Sennheiser HD 25-1 II

 

and i dont know which one i choose.

I listen to all king of music. I listen a lot of gospel songs, so the music type is kinda general...

Im not an "heavy metal" guy, so im not looking for an headphone that emphases only the rock style, but general rock.

I love classic musics too! i love almost every kind of music so..

 

If you guys were me, which one would you choose between those three?

 

thank you

Yeah, knock Bose right off your list there.  I'd even go as far as to say Monster headphones are better than Bose. And please, please don't buy Monster headphones either.

 

Major headphone makers that have a variety of different styles and sounds in various price ranges are:

 

Beyerdynamic

Sennheiser

Grado

Audio Technica

AKG

Ultrasones

 

If you want a decent Noise Canceling headphone, you will generally have to put up with a bit of interference (white noise) at some level. Bose are particularly bad in this regard.

 

Sony, Sennheiser, and Audio Technica make decent Noise Cancelling sets, from what I hear. Can't say there are any Sony headphones I'd recommend normally though. 

 

 My understanding is that the Beyer you've listed is really tricky to get decent sound out of... very tempremental seal. The Sennheiser is totally awesome though. I'd go with that if that between those two.

 

Do listen to a well burned in Bowers & Wilkins P5 though, if you can. Personally, I use the P5 as my "quiet time" headphone. With a decent seal, it blocks a very large percentage of ambient noise. The sound quality is either nothing to write home about, or totally awesome... depending on who you talk to. YMMV. Incredible build quality too.

noise-cancelling only works for continuous sound, i have a pair of QC and you can hear a conversation with them on, the other two not only blow the QC out of the water in terms of sound quality, but isolation as well (and they aren't even noise cancelling)

most people here will tell you bose are decent sounding just over priced, and personally i think they are being very generous to bose when they say that.

BOSE = Buy Other Sound Equipment

 

They don't get much love here and for very good reason...they're rather poor sounding and way over priced cheap, plasticky headphones. Oh...and welcome to Head-fi....my sincerest apologies to your wallet. smile.gif

If possible try them out and you'll know. Agree with viewpoint on Bose.

 

Beyerdynamic DT1350 - Treble, details, clean

Sennheiser HD25 - Warmth and bass

 

I went for Beyer because of the look. If I can choose again, I will go for both, same recommendation to you. Get both, no trouble.

I'd say get the Sennheisers you listed. Those are great headphones, and pretty invincible.

Both the Senn HD25-II or DT1350s are great...can't loose with either one actually. Both sound WAY better than the Bose QC anything.

go for the tesla GO FOR IT!!

 

If you want portability and noise-cancelling with a sweeter sound consider the Audio Technica ANC-23, IEM's (in ear monitors) actually have very good sound quality.

 

 

If you're going to spend around $250 the brands you can trust (any product) are Sony, Audio Technica, Beyerdynamic, Fostex, Shure, Denon, AKG and JVC.

I would be careful and try noise cancelling first. Many (like me) get an annoying pressure on your eardrums when using them...makes for a very unpleasant feeling.

Yes you're correct MacedonianHero, when I tried a Sennheiser PXC noise-cancelling headphone I felt very uncomfortable, after a while I think I'd get a headache.

 

The ANC-23 is the only NC I didn't get that feeling from, and it sounds quite good (sweet and balanced) with the NC turned off too.
