Upgrade from Crossfade lp's

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Well, its that time again. Searching for new head gear, but an upgrade from vmoda's crossfade lp. They are OK, nice isolation and all but the comfort is killing me. I can't wear these things for an hour without getting a headache. I need something comfortable and something to relax to. Alright you get the point. Price range: 100-280 dollars would be nice. Portable, comfortable, great isolation, easy to travel with, and so forth. I listen to electronic music so just a bit on bass emphasis. (I am not a basshead)

Thanks again Head-Fi.

Anything is welcome. Much appreciated. I am brain dead on an upgrade.
Something similar to vmodas.. Besides the comfort.
Thanks once again.

I'm hearing some good things about the UE6000. I will also look into that.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Have you heard of the sound by chance?

Might be visitng a headphone store. Will make sure I audition those UE if not, see if there's any good headphone that suit you.

From a few reviews that I had read. They are empasised in bass with slightly recessed mids.

Recessed mids you say? Hmm interesting

My brother(he has no experience with headphone) find the UE6000 bad.

As for ATH-M50, I would recommend it if it's your first purchase of headphone. The bass are good but not tight. Mids are recessed a bit & highs are okay. However, I feel like the sound are all squeezed together.

HD518 from Sennheiser are good. Good bass with smooth midrange(EMO, I find it ted better than SRH-440) & highs are clear.

AKG K550 are the best choice! Same like HD518 but way much better. Don't worry about the size, it fits my small head(I'm 14) pretty good smily_headphones1.gif

Just my 2cent.

Arent the k550 more of a flat sounding headphone?

http://en.goldenears.net/13746 not exactly... The bass are strong when I pair it with iBasso D7. You can too try the Sennheiser Momentum which is quite bassy in my opinion. It's not tight thought. & FYI, the Momentum earpada, are small. If you have bigger than average ear, it can be a lil uncomfortable. smily_headphones1.gif
