New Headphone

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello guys, i'm new in here and i would like your opinion helping me decide what headphone to buy =).
I live in Brazil, and there are a few variety of headphones to sell, and most of the shops overprice the products, so I don't have many options to buy ahhaha.

I had a Beats Studio, then I lost, so I started to search about phones and discovered that those aren't the "best headphones of the world",  and then, searching in here, I decided to buy a Philips Fidelio L1.

The thing is that, I don't know why, I didn't like very much the sound of the fidelio, so I am thinking of buying a new pair. These are the options: 
Sennheiser HD 25-1 II adidas originals

Sennheiser HD598

Audio Techinica ath m-50

Pioneer HDJ2000
(All the phones are with similar prices)

I'm not an audiophile, but care for sound quality and hear mainly rock, and sound leakage is not a big problem. Most of the songs I hear are from p2p downloaders or downloaded from youtube, so they dont have the best sq. Amp and DAC are a problem because it's very dificulty to find good ones here.
Thank you for any help and sorry for the bad english =)
 

EDIT:  After some burnin in, and some more quality musics, im really linking the fidelios =)

Comon man, im sure that if i've posted that i would buy a beats, you would say they are trash, extremely overpriced and there are lots of headphones out there better and with a lower price.
I admit that most of my musics are p2p downloaded, but how i said, i didn't understood nothing of sq (reason i bought beats), so all the musics i have were downloaded this way. Im trying now to buy some better quality ones, but it will take a veeery long time so I can change all the musics I had to better quality ones.
Im just trying not to be a stupid who buy beats for appearence, and buy a really good pair of heaphones. And would thanks a lot if someone really helps me =)

What's your music preference? At this price arrange, I prefer K550 for jazz, HD598 for country music, SR325 for Rock or Metal.

I never auditioned HDJ2000 and M-50. But for HD598 and HD25, I prefer HD598, especially when I listened to them with appropriate amp/DAC.

Thank you, im really thinking of buying the hd 598, and search harder to find a decent amp to use with it.

Fiio E17 is probably a good choice, the amp/DAC I'm using. But Nuforce hdp seems to be better if you got enough budget.

I found the Ultrasone HFI-580 for half of the price of the others. Would it be a good deal ? For what i readed, the hd 598 lacks of bass, and i really didn't find a good amp/dac here in Brazil, I will have to import the fiio e17 after buying the headphone and save some more money ahh
