Help me to choose the right headphone PLEASE!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Well i've been searching for the right headphone for a couple of weeks but i'm not sure wich one is the one. I dont want to spend more than $300.

 

I need something that dosen't leak to much sound so i can use them in the library or when i'm traveling.

Music: classical, rock (alternative, grunge, etc), acoustic, instrumental. 

I want a Full Size headphone.

I don't consider myself a basshead.

 

Some headphone i was reading about but i'm not sure if they are good for me:

 

*Beyerdynamic DT880 (it seems they leak a lot, but there is a mod to "close" them by taping the holes from the inside)

 

*AKG K550 (i think my head is relatively small, so i'm not sure if they will seal very well on my head. The problem is that i'm from south america, so i can't buy them and send them back if they dont fit on my head, because i'm buying it from amazon) 

 

*Denon AH-D2000 (this + amp will be too expensive, but maybe it worth to spend a few more dollars) 

 

*Im obviously open to new recommendations.

 

PD. i thinking on buying fiio e11 if amp is needed.

 

Thanks.

Better to get the DT770 then taping over the DT880.

I think the AKG K550 is your best bet.

Don't get a pair of headphones that are open-backed and then mod them so that they are closed . . . get a pair of closed ones to begin with.

yes for what i read about them i think the akg are good for me, but i'm not sure if they will seal well enough. Im 1.77 meters tall and weight 70 kilograms and i think that my head is a bit smaller than the average.
