Headphones Most Suitable for Kpop?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hello, I was searching through the forum but i cant find anything i want. Which headphones would be suitable for listening to kpop and a bit of rap? I want something that can really bring out the music in both. I was thinking of the V-Moda M-100 or Sennheiser HD-25? not sure if they're the best choice, any suggestions?

I listen to kpop also, but mostly ballads. I'm using the HD 650 with RSA's The Intruder as an amp.

 

I listen to 2pm and they sound great. 

 

This is just in general it may vary to your preference.

 

PM me if you have any other questions. I've tried a couple of setups mainly listening to kpop/ballads.

Would the 598's be good?

I love the Senn 598s as an all-rounder, but they're not the best for rap. KPop is hit or miss.

 

It also depends on the kind of Korean music you're listening to - if you mean mainstream stuff like SNSD, f(x), Big Bang, etc. I'd opt for something on the bassy side that doesn't bleed into the midrange. I haven't heard the M-100 myself but it could be a decent bet.

 

D600 plays well with both genres, but I prefer the 598s overall. If those two genres are literally all you listen to, I haven't heard anything better than the D600.

Thanks, I'll consider the D600.

My D600 handles both 2NE1 and Davichi equally well. Definitely recommend.

So they are good for ballads as well?

Good enough for me yes. Bass can get boomy at times if the recording hints at it.

I use a pair of LA-2000 (modded Denon D2k) to listen to kpop almost exclusively (2ne1, Secret, Big Bang, Ailee, Crown J, DJ Doc, Epik High, YDG, JinuSean, Illinit, MC Sniper, San E, I could probably go on forever).  I am very pleased with them, though they can be sibilant, especially with how most kpop songs are mastered.  I think that the D600 is the new replacement for the D2k which people here seem to be suggesting a lot.  If it is anything like the D2k, you will probably not be disappointed.  Please do note that I haven't heard the D600.
