Best Headphone under $200? - Page 3

post #31 of 73

The Beyerdynamic DT 880, Beyerdynamic DT 990, and the AKG Q701 are all cheaper or equal in price to the Sennheiser HD 598 and all are considered a tier above the HD 598. The DT 880, DT 990, and Q701 are in the same tier as the HD 600/650. It's more about whether what headphone will suit is personal preference in sound the most for the price is looking at.

I don't know anything about the Logitech UE 6000 or the AKG K550, so I can't really comment on them. Honestly I think it's subjective whether the K550 or UE 6000 sounds better, it's a matter of finding your sound preference, which is hard to know unless you have tried multiple different pairs of headphones from different brands. Also Tyll on Innerfidelity or basically any reviewer are going by their preferences on headphones at least some, which may or may not fit your own preference. Finding the sound signature that suits you best is honestly a real pain. If I knew what sound signature I liked from the beginning I wouldn't of wasted so much money on headphones I never really liked. I wish it was easier to have the option to try before you buy on most of these headphones instead of going from reviewers that may or may not have similar sound preferences as you do.

Spend a little more and get the HD598 or wait until it goes on sale again on Amazon for ~$180. Also, we won't tell you to buy headphones like Logitech, Bose and Beats, LOL.

 

 

have you heard the other cans listed to recommend the hd 598? or is this just speculation .. .

 

the dt 880 under 200 dollars? that will be a great deal!

I have the AKG K550 and have had the opportunity to try the UE6000 many times. I prefer the sound and the comfort of the AKG by far, but as kman211 correctly points, probably it's a question of your personal preference. I find the UE6000 a bit far agressive and dark, may be better in the treble, and the AKG smoother and more equilibred.

Wintersun, with the first two tracks of the album. It is amazing, we are talking 20+ layers of instrumentation and vocals carefully mixed!

I disagree with the notion that we don't recommend logitech or bose. UE is a known brand here for making good headphones. Look up the triple.fi 10 for an example. As for bose, I see recommendations here and there for their noise cancelling headphones. I won't touch the subject of beats though.

Point is, no matter branding, there are good headphones out there that should be recommended.
