best full size headphones for $235 us

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I'm planing to get some high end headphones, but I really don't know what is best for $235 us dollars.

Open or closed cans?  =P

 

A budget is good, but I think you should give a bit more detail--what genres do you listen to?  Does it need to be portable?  Need/want an amplifier for it?

haha sorry, I prefer open. I listen to mostly rock. It doesn't need to be portable since its just to leave at home and yes I will use a desktop amp with the headphones.

if you find them comfortable, you can't really beat grades for rock music, its always a fun experience too listen too some classic rock on a pair of grades

Personally I haven't had a good experience with Grados. They broke in just a month. frown.gif

Ouch.

Maybe: AKG K242HD, Beyerdynamic DT440, Beyerdynamic DT860, HE-300....
There are plenty more options.

Determining what is "best" is so subjective.

really? how did they break, did you twist the cable too much? but if you can use a amp then I would say look at the beyerdynamic dt990 or hifiman he300

Beyer is quality top to bottom. I'd look at:

 

dt880 if you prefer a neutral detailed sound

 

dt990 for a good soundstage and nice bass for an open phone

 

gL!!

I agree beyerdynamic's have a really good feel too them, it always gives you the feel of a high quality product

What is best in a price range really depends on preference, but I would take a look into the Fischer audio FW-002W.

 

GD Audio Base is having a 10% discount right now, and your budget will just meet, just that you have to incur $20 shipping charges.

In your price range check out used cans. You will find here on hf many great bargains inc some great beyers grados senns akg etc. My personal preferences would be some beyer dt 770 senn 600 grado 325 Good luck
