Allen Heath Xone XD-53's?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I currently own a pair of AKG K271's but they're too big to wear in public (they look ridiculous) and I'm looking at the Allen Heath Xone XD-53's. I'm a drummer which would be the primary use of my headphones, and the AKG's did not stay on my head at all. My price range is around 150$ (I can get Allen Heath for 157$) so I'm open to suggestions. Thanks.

For drumming, you may want to go with a dedicated drummer headphone or some in-ears. They'll isolate best.

Thanks, but I also want to use my headphones for also drumming, and I don't really want to spend $100 for a pair of IEM's

I don't do any drumming, but I just recently acquired the Xone53, It's a great headphone.  The sound quality is great with a really deep and booming bass.  They fit very loosely, so they may not be a great choice for you.  The Audio-Technica Pro700mk2 clamps very tightly, and it isolates well, along with being very sturdy.  Just my suggestion without knowing exactly what qualities are needed by a drummer (I'm a DJ, guitarist, and bassist).
