Help with bassy headphones.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello guys. 

I'm new here and I came here hoping to get some help. The biggest problem I have is that my head is too small for most headphones.

I've been stuck with the Beats for some time now and I'm getting sick of the sound and overall quality of their stuff but when I go to the store and try on some Audio-Technica's or AKG's they tend to be too big for my head. To develop "Too small", I simply mean that the smallest setting of the cans end up with the top of the cushion on the middle of my ear (not quite that far down but you get the point.) The smallest setting on all of the Beats By Dre fit me, barrely. It's still a tiny bit too big for me but it's wearable at least. I noticed the Bose around ear fits very nicely on my head but I don't really like the sound on them better than the beats. 

To be honest I kind of like the sound in the Beats Pro with the overwhelming bass, the problem with them is that they're pretty much unwearable after about an hour (They clamp my head and sits ON the ear instead of around them because of some tragical circular designchoice on the cushion.)

Basically, the question is:

I want the sound of the Beats Pro's (Like I said, I'm new here so don't kill me, haha, better sound will OF COURSE do too.) In decent looking headphones with great comfort that will fit my tiny head. 

I've been looking at the ATH M50S, ATH PRO700MK2 (more bass right? And not the long cord of the M50S) and a bunch of random Ultrasones.

I have no idea how the Ultrasones are supposed to sound, I just like the design alot and I read somewhere that some of the Ultrasones are great for bass.

My taste in music is rather wide and differs from pure piano tunes to heavy metal, to dubstep and acoustic soul like Gavin Degraw and such.

My budget is flexible but I wouldn't want to spend over $300 and my main rig will be from my PC with a regular AMP but I want to be able to listen from my Galaxy Nexus phone as well.

The PRO series Ultrasones are a little bit unfriendly for small heads. I'm not sure about the HFI series though. The M50 is definitely not something you'd buy for overwhelming bass. Try asking in the Basshead Club. (Link in my signature)

Sure why not. A lot of the guys there are a lot more experienced than I am. Not to mention they have experience with other cans that I'm sure will interest you. (Like the V-moda stuff)

Done and done, thanks for the quick response. :)
