Headphones that work with glasses

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 

Greetings!

 

I know that this is my 129312987412398 thread, but i really need the community's help on this issue. Because i didn't wear my glasses when i was playing or watching movies on the computer my diopter has risen to -1 so i really need to wear glasses now.

 

I need a closed-back pair of headphones, maybe more neutral than bass-heavy since u can easily eq it to have bass. It also has to be comfortable enough so that you can use it with glasses. I think the Beyer fit the case but other than that i have no idea. Although i'd like to have more options.

 

Any suggestion would be highly appreciated. 

 

EDIT: Silly me forgot to say budget, about 200$.

Heya,

 

Beyer DT770

Brainwavz HM5

Ultrasone PRO 750

AKG K271 MKII

AudioTechnica A900X

 

You can always EQ any unwanted bass away if you need to.

 

Very best,

Any input on the sound signatures of the Dt770, A900X and akg 271 mkII? My ears are kinda sensitive to high end sparkle (or whatever it's called, harsh treble, i dunno), I've returned a lot of headphones because of it.

If you could say which headphones you've returned due to excessive sparkle, that'd be great.

Well I've returned the HD558, audio-technica SJ-33, jays t-jays two and I've tried the Grado SR80i at a friend and didn't like it either.

I can vouch for the ATH-A900x by Audio Technica.  Since the headband is a hoop, it can really work well with glasses.  Also, there is not a high frequency sparkle (to my ears) with these headphones.  They are more neutral on the upper frequencies, yet quite pleasing to listen to for extended periods.

Thank you for your input. I think i might get them or the DT770. Not really sure which but I'm in no hurry.

 

Also i have a few more questions. 

First, are all open-headphones good with glasses? IMO i think they are since they don't clamp hard but i just want to be sure.

And second, if i were to choose a pair of open-back headphones, which headphones should i look at?(please don't recommend ath-ad series, they don't have any bass at all).

Used BeyerDynamic dt880, they may be too bright for you, but damn comfy. As Malveaux said, EQ is a hell of a pain reliever.

just take the 6k slider down about 3db and that should do great.

DT880 is not closed back so you may want to scratch that from your list (unless you changed your mind).
And they fit similar to DT770 if I remember right, otherwise the DT770 being slightly more comfortable to my ears.
