looking for first good headphones around $150 - Page 3

post #31 of 44

I just got my DJ1s 2 days ago, I was gonna get the white M50s but these were cheaper, plus I think they are pretty badass lookin lol. I am 17 so looks were important but not more important than sound, and these have both (: The cord is all good. Its as long as the HFI 580s but it is coiled, like 4 1/2 feet long. I just walked around in Walmart with them for a few hours a little bit ago and it was fine. They never got too heavy on my neck and the cord didn't feel in the way or anything. Isolation is decent, barely any leakage though. They can make your ears hot and slightly irritated after a while but a quick break and its all good. And I am super happy with the bass and sound quality on these. I don't even have EQ on or anything and all my music sounds great from my razr. Bass is present where it should be and the mids and highs are never drowned out at all. I'm new to the audiophile world, and for my first headphones I couldn't be happier. I got the fiio e11 with mine, but it doesn't need it. I mean it just makes it go louder really, maybe some slight sound improvements (little more controlled bass etc), I just got the amp mainly for any future headphones. I highly recommend these.

Oh and the fiio e11 also hase EQ settings for bass boost and the highest boost will definitely give you all the bass you will ever need lol, I got the DJ1s and the fiio e11 for $180 total

Yes, its coiled(: Haha I couldn't imagine a 10 foot cable! This one looks a little funny cause its coiled... you know, usually cool headphones you see teens walking around in don't have a fat coiled cable lol. But it is springy so its fun to play with haha. Plus I am thinking about doing a removable cable mod. I found a thread about someone who did it to the HFI 580 and it looks pretty simple if you can work a soldering iron

but do they fit completely over your ear or do they sit on it a bit

You can braid the cable of the HFI580 to make it around 4 feet long. Mr.Nurse has a guide on it and a video... I think the braiding actually looks pretty good.

The pro dj100 wont have the bass you are looking for IMHO

not even with the amp?

Im not sure.... Maybe you could stretch a bit and get the ultrasones with an e11.

The koss are not really basshead headphones but they have really nice mids FWIR.

Have you thought about the V-MODA M-80. Much better SQ than the LP/LP2 and very balanced. Nice punchy bass and beautiful mids. Very comfortable for an on-ear, good soundstage also for such a small can. Isolation is good also, not great but it can still block out a good amount of noise. I love them.

well i don't want the m-80 cuz its on ear and everyone says the lp/lp2 aren't very good

post #42 of 44

Like I said, the M-80 is a different story altogether and also very comfortable. Just food for thought.

Sony MDR-V6 headphones.

(Way under your budget)

 

+1, I always thought the v6's sounded amazing with rap, but everyone thought I was crazy.

There is something wrong with basically every pair of headphones depending on the individual... Take reviews with a grain of salt smily_headphones1.gif

As far as the Koss headphones go, they are definitely not bass heavy. I would add to the suggestion of the M80. They are far better than the LP. If you really want huge quantities of bass then maybe go for the LP's though you will sacrifice overall sound.
