I'm new and i could use some help :P

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've been looking for some new headphones, (I believe the type I want are called "cans") I've done some studying and closed back would better serve my needs. I'd like to keep the price at about $400 or less. i listen to mostly rock, rap, and pop, and i do enjoy a nice bass sound. right now i have the JVC HAM5X and i feel like it sounds too muddy, the electronics store near my house is selling the POLK AUDIO ULTAFOCUS 8000, which I've heard good thing about. can anybody help me pick out some new headphones?

Denon D2000, Beyerdynamic DT770, Audio Technica AD900X, Mad Dogs/Paradox, Ultrasone PRO 900, are some of the choices for closed cans under $400. Obviously there's more, but these are what come to mind. No idea about the Polk.

+1 for D2000. The bass on these is perfect for rap and hip hop. The Denon's are my go to headphones for rap, it's like having a subwoofer attached to your head and the voicing is really good for those genres.

I would like to throw in the AKG K550's into your choices, I chose mine over the D2000. 

The bass is less emphasised than on the Denons, though are definately present. They come to the foreground if the song intents so, but overall a very balanced, clear pair of cans with an amazing soundstage for a closed phone and good looking on top. Try them out if you have the chance to!
