Headphones for house/techno/trance???

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
Hello guys!
I'm new and I'm writing to ask for advice.
 
Currently they have the Creative Aurvana Live + FiiO E10 ... great sound.
 
The problem arises when I listen to house / techno or trance where CAL not return a good bass ...
Can you recommend a pair of headphones in the same price AKG K518 which drives well low??
thanks
 
P.S: sorry for the english, I'm Italian biggrin.gif

I know I've been mentioning this a lot lately... but maybe perhaps the MDR-V6. ~$67 on Amazon normally. They drive well w/ out an amp. 

 

From Italia? It is a beautiful country. Though paying for the restrooms and such is another thing wink.gif

Sony MDR-V6? I read a review of this site are detailed but not sure if they go well with trance and house ... maybe they could fit the Sony XB700 but does not sell more
Other suggestions?

off list? As for the stores, the xb700 is out of production now, though you can find it on amazon.  I'm not sure of the akg's

 

Something else I was going to say...

Thank you guys.
Unfortunately, the headsets you are too expensive ...
For now on Amazon I found only XB500 XB700 but not ...
They are good for house and techno or trance compared to CAL? And compared to AKG K518?
thanks

The best rewarding headphones for techno are for me IEMs.

With a good seal, some massive bass is injected directly into your ear drum, and I don't think full size are able to do something that massive.

Thank you!
What do you recommend?
Keep in mind that the headphones use to play a game ...

I might be wrong, but often gamers like headphones light on bass, and with great comfort.

Anyway, if you want some exciting bass, I  found that Iems are the cheapest, and easiest way to reach satisfaction.

I only tried the senn IE7, and yamaha eph-100, both make you want to hear stuff like pryda, and tap you feet (although the senn ie7 is perhaps better on bass area, but unfortunately discontinued).

I  imagine that since you liked he Creative Aurvana Live, you might be happy with the cheap creative ep-630 (quite popular, but I  didn't tried them).

Thanks for the advice but I'd prefer a big headset to use at home ...
XB1000 cost much but do you think are better than the XB500 or XB700??

The xb1000 has the biggest drivers, and xb500 the smallest.

However I've seen people preferring the xb500, despite being cheaper.

Some describe the XB  line as "fart canons".

I  think these are a "side" headphone , that you get for fun, but not for all kind of musics.

It's apparent that I like the big XB's better, I own them.
