The BEST looking and sounding headphones

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 

I was just wondering what your guys takes are on what are the the best looking headphones, and of course, they must sound great

Price range and music tastes?

post #3 of 73

Yes--probably should be broken down by price ranges.  Those priced below the woodies won't have a chance other wise.

For hip hop. You gonna wear them around I take it.. Try a Ultrasone HFI-580.. Good looking cans and sound great too.  Or the Ultrasone DJ1. Depends on which one you like better looks wise. Both are great looking. Great for hip hop. Sturdy. Good isolation. Good sound. Won't cost you so much. Around half of what your willing to spend. The DJ1 are white n black. and the HFi-580s are chrome and black. Both are the same headphones but one was made for Dj use. 417pQ1PUXtL._SL500_AA300_.jpg41wji+0KNGL._SL500_AA300_.jpg Both are easy to drive and will play out of any MP3 player or even your phone.. You can spend a lot more for other cans n such but a nice combo of looks and sound.. These are it.. From one hip hop listener to another.. Solid for the price.

You guys know how the HFI-780's compare to the 580's/DJ1's?

@davidgotsa, what kind of rap did you used to listen to?

post #12 of 73

Ya I own both. The HFI-780 are good but lack the punch that is on the HTF-580/ DJ1s.  I like the HFI-780 for trance more so but for hip hop..The DJ1/ HFi-580.

 

The HFI-780 aren't bass light. Good bass on these but Ultrasone made the HFI-580 into a DJ can for reason. The best bass out of the HFI- series.. And I also own the V-80s. Not great for hiphop. For light music they are great but not for bass heavy music.

Best looking headphone for me has to be the B&W P5.    Great design and build quality.

Apathy, Nas, Esoteric, Big L, Ludacris, Rakim, Brother Ali, Atmosphere... etc

I personally listen to a lot of Kanye West and I really do like his albums and music... I also used to listen to a lot of Drake...

I think now a lot of rap is almost incorporated into a lot of different genres with some songs having a completely different sound then what rap used to be...

theres violins, full orchestras, all kinds of sounds in raps nowadays, not just the thump of bass...

I think i'll stay with rap for a while, but I don't think its fair to condemn the whole genre...

just my 2 cents...

 

@evolutionx I tried the P5's, but they just didnt do it for me... thanks though!

 

thanks for the advice dsnuts, I shall be ordering the DJ1's soon I believe...
