Best closed Sennheisers in $200 price range?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I recently got some Sennheiser hd428's and decided I liked the Sennheiser sound better than the sound of my Grado SR-325is.  I am considering selling the Grados and using the money to purchase a higher end Sennheiser in the same price range. What would you recommend as the best closed Sennheisers in that price range? Although I do have the Grados, I find the open air design annoying and limiting because I can only listen to them when I am alone in my room, so that is why I would want a closed pair.

Senn's become open in the 500 Series.  They do Have a few other sets tho.  The lower 200's series, A few in the 300 I think?

The highest model ( Newest line up) is the 449, I believe.  If it was me, Since you like the Senn sound and have $200, Hd 558,

They are open but man they sound Fantastic!!

Heya,

 

Each Sennheiser sounds different. Hard to say that you'll like the higher model closed back series of Sennheiser. Depending on how much you can sell your 325's for, maybe try for a Momentum.

 

I would have you look into different closed headphones though:

 

Beyer DT770 PRO

Beyer Custom One Pro

Ultrasone HFI 780

Ultrasone PRO 750

AKG K167

AKG K550

Mr Speaker Mad Dog

Brainwavz HM5

AudioTechnica A900X

Shure SRH840

KRK KNS 8400

Logitech UE 6000

Sony MDR1R

 

Very best,

I'd say HD 25 would be a good choice, definitely.

I see that there are different versions of that model.  Do you mean HD25-1 II, HD25SP, or just plain HD25?
