Help me choose from these 4 headphones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am a first time headphone buyer and I've been doing a lot of research. I'm looking for a neutral pair of headphones and I prefer mids and highs over bass because I listen to mostly rock, ska, metal, alt, etc. I've narrowed it down to these four in my price range,

 

Sony MDR 7506 - I'm leaning toward these, I've heard many good things about them

 

Yamaha HPH-200 - There are very few reviews on these, but from the little I've read they sound like exactly what I'm looking for, but I'd rather go with something a bit more tried and true

 

Shure SRH 440

 

Sennheiser HD 448

 

Any advice or recommendations would be well appreciated, thanks

The cheaper sennies tend to have problems with their connector/cable. I have heard many who have got issues with one channel failing due to bad cables/connectors. This is mostly with the cheapest sennheiser headphones, though. I don't know about the hd 448.

My vote would be for the Sonys or Shures.  Slightly leaning towards the Sonys though.
