As you will probably see, i am a newby on this forum, i am living in the Netherlands. Before i start i want to excuse myself for my bad English and probably long post.
I have been looking a long time for a headphone that will fit my needs completely. I am not an audiophile at all, but when i am listening to music i want it to be a pleasuring and comfortable experience. I am just afraid to make a decision on my own, because i can only spend my money once.
The headphones that i am looking for has to be an closed, over ear type with a warm sound, but it also has to fit an poor student's budget.
Like i said i want a warm sound, and when i mean warm, i mean a good bass, great mids and clear highs, but the bass may not be too overwhelming like the xb-500's. I also want headphones who will not leak extremely much sound.
I will use the headphone at home, but the headphone has to be portable enough to walk the dog with. I will use the headphone with my laptop, my phone and my Sansa Clip so the cable has to be around 1,2 meters.
The headphones i have on my mind:
- Skullcandy Hesh 2.0 (Some of you guys are not that negative about it as the other ones, i know the most of you does not like SK.)
- Philips Uptown
- Pioneer se-mj 751 (i know it is not over ear, thats why i have my doubts on this one)
- Sennheiser hd 419
The genres i listen to:
- Instrumentals etc.
For example; The headphone needs to handle Mumford and Sons but also Florence and the Machine, Skrillex/Datsik or Rihanna
Please could someone give their opinion on the listed headphones? If some of you have other options on their mind, please do not hesitate to tell them.
