So you've heard the Mad Dogs yourself? From which sources?

 

The OP isn't using an iPad/iPod.

 

Blanket statements are not helpful. And copy & pasting someone else's opinion is also not helpful.

 

I'm not trying to be rude. Just simply stating that it should be kept close to factual where possible.

 

The T50RP doesn't need an amp.

 

The Mag Dog is a T50RP. It hasn't had any resistors added or anything. It's efficiency and impedance are the same.

 

There's a ton of misinformation around here that people seem to think that if you make something better, it naturally suddenly needs an amp. This is simply not true.

 

Very best,

Very best,

Look at my sig, I own them. Why would Dan, the maker of the Mad Dogs, lie? It wouldn't be in his favor either, it would be pushing away people that don't want to use an ampconfused.gif

I would recommend the Astro A30 headphones, their priced at 130 dollars and there a good solid pair of headphones cheap enough to get you a few games and movies

hahah. usually most people here believe you can get better sounding headphones at the same price of dedicated gaming headsets.

So without any mods or an amplifier what do you guys think would be best for hip hop?

For under 200 bucks, i would go with the ue 6000s, the passive mode is very close to audiophile quality with very clean bass. they are excellent for that genre and come with added noise cancellation that is very decent for even more bass thump if you are into that.

 

without a a budget definitely go with the m100s

Do the UE 6000's still provide a relatively neutral sound, and also how do they compare to the akg k240's? Thanks.

You can find the 1r for about 200...
If you are ok with no android remote then you should get them...
I personally prefer them over the ue...

i haven't heard the k240s yet, but the ue6000 in passive mode is very neutral, you cant beat the flat response for the price. The comfort is A plus as well. Only downside is they are tad heavier for the size and ear cups are not replaceable 

 

can be had on amazon for about 96 dollars now

Thanks, UE's are on the top of the list now, do you know how they compare to the audio technica ath-m50? Ive been seeing them mentioned alot around the boards.

It's such a crap shoot right now in this price range. I'll always give you the "bang for your buck" answer. For hip hop, go try the v-moda crossfire series out. You can't go wrong with the m50 but they aren't the most portable rig because of their cable design. I think the monoprice mh-839 is a butt kicking pair of closed back headphones that you can get for around 25 bucks. It leaves room in the budget for a portable amp, and you can pick up an upgraded cable also (yes, the cable is detachable and comes packed with a cheap 3 foot cable and a longer cable for home use). Another modification is getting some velour pads. They sound clean and clear. They definitely make a great backup set.
