Best Headphones for Jrock/Jpop under $300? - Page 2

Hellou. I have Fischer FA 003 and Audio Technica M50. I also have FIIO E10&E11.

I would recommend the Audio Technica M50 for Jrock and Jpop, because for me the highpitched japanese Jpop singers feels the best with a good bass. I'm not sure if I am a basshead, but it just sounded good. Jrock sounds good too. Also M50 doesn't really need a amp, but I felt the sound got better when I tested it amp vs my laptop or maybe I just got the Placebo effect....

My overall headphone opinions might change in time once I get more into headphones and sound world, but as for now I feel that it is like this. Just my two cents

 

I listen Mell, KOTKO, Mami Kawada, Ayane, Kokia, I've Sound, Back-On, UVERworld, SID, Acid, Siam Shade, Rookies Is Punk', Last Alliance and L'arc En Ciel...

I just read a few reviews about the m50, and it seems that the mids are slightly recessed, which is a huge downer for me because I want to hear clear vocals, I'm currently using the image s4, and they perform pretty well, but seems to lack treble, so I'm looking for headphones that sound similar but with more treble.

Most of those bands sound good with my DT990 Pros.

Ok, so these are the choices I have so far:

1.srh840/940

2.k550

3.q701

4.m50

5.dt990 pro

 

I'm currently leaning towards the k550 since it fits most of my needs. Also would it benefit from the e6 I have?

ooo you listen to Scandal! k701smile.gif

 

I'll stop there before I derail this thread. I'm interested in hearing the suggestions although you're more than likely to get the same suggestions that were highlighted in the other threads.

Link to one of scandals best songs with the best stream I could find for those that want to check quickly. They are my favourite band atm so any suggestions with what headphone they sound best with would be appreciated.

I would agree scandal is a great band but I still think AKFG, l'arc en ceil, and the gazette is better at jrock.

Anyway I'm currently going for the k550, thinking of getting the e17 with it, not sure if the k550 would benefit much from it. I use an ipod touch 4th gen.

Or maybe I should just use the cmoybb v2.03

Those other groups are a bit too extreme for my tastes. I prefer moderate rock groups like scandal, Does, prague etc..

We all have our own opinions and tastes.

Should not need amplification.

But will the SQ improve with the e17?

I'm under the impression that Ipod touch 4g already has pretty decent DAC built in it.

But what I really want to know is if the SQ will improve with the e17 or will it be better without.
