Help headphones for rap/hip hop 90% of the time

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I HAVE Z5500 speackers Asus DX1 sound card I used to have Sennheiser HD 25 till the cable came loose and only 1 speaker works. I mainly use my headphones aswell.

 

I listen to mainly old school rap/hiphop type and bascily youtube vidoes and maybe 5% of the time movies and other stuff

 

Also i wanted to add i am going to be using them in my house. I have looked at

 

Ultrasone pro 900

Denon AH-2000

AKG 701 Bose

qc15 noise cancelling headphone

ULTRASONE S-Logic Proline 650 natural

Sennheiser HD 555 Headphones Ultrasone

DJ1 Headphones Shure SRH-940

Audio-Technica ATH-AD900

 

I am just not sure wat to do here now? Now i don't want to spend massive but i want something good and to last 5 years+. I like bass but not consistanly overpowering. Also with the stuff im listining to will the justify the amout i payed for headphones. Thanks and sorry about spelling

Denon 2K or Ultrasone 900 or Beyer DT770 80 ohm. Stay away from Shure SRH 940, AKG K701, and Bose.

I dont exactly know which headphones to reccomend you since I'm liking a whole different sound signature, but nonetheless, it may help us help you a great deal if you could answer a few things, such as;

 

Price range?

Do they need to be portable?

Open or closed back headphones?

Do they need to be very durable? Will these be mainly just for home use or for lugging around in an active daily life?

Will you be using, willing to use, or willing to buy an amp (if necessary) to run a pair of headphones?

Is isolation and leakage very important to you? Do you want minimal sound to get in, and minimal to get out?

 

Thanks, that really helps us out if you could answer :)

Price range?100-400 trying not to spend to much because i listen to music from i mesh not the highest quilty of music and youtube vidoes.

Do they need to be portable?no

Open or closed back headphones?closed not sure wat this means but must cover ear

Do they need to be very durable? Will these be mainly just for home use or for lugging around in an active daily life? Home in my room only

Will you be using, willing to use, or willing to buy an amp (if necessary) to run a pair of headphones?Yes maybe

Is isolation and leakage very important to you? Do you want minimal sound to get in, and minimal to get out? Dont car about leckage

Monster Beats, since to me that's the only thing it's good for, hip/hop.  Though I'd still avoid them since Monster as a company are just terrible. 

 

I hear the DT770 are just monsters for bass music like Hip/Hop.  Also check out the reviews for Ultrasone HFI 580.

just bought denon d2000s, having owned dt 770 pros and having ultrasone pro 900s.

 

the pro 900s are ok for rap since they're very bassy, but not so much in subbass.

 

the dt 770 pros have amazing bass, but can be muddy at louder volumes and has very recessed mids

 

the d2000 is pretty good. lots of low bass, slightly recessed but good mids, and nice highs.

 

 

the d2000 is my new rap phone. even better than the hd 650s i used to use for rap.

 

 

 

only down side to denon, like the beyerdynamic, they are very revealing and will sound like crap with low bitrate mp3s/etc. make sure to download lossless and 320kbps whenever possible.

Interested in this as well. Does anyone have any thoughts on Sennheiser HD598 for hip-hop listening? I have HD595's which are great all around, even with rap. I just think they may be lacking a hint of bass. I also listen however to The Beatles, The Smiths, Radiohead etc. Tons of different genres. I am looking to upgrade to an all around set that can handle rap and hip-hop as its one of my favorite genres. Thanks
