Need an advice a headphone for a friend, want it super comfortable for movies

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi\

 

A friend of mine tried my HD650 and he liked it very much, he decided that he wants to go audiophile, he asked me to choose him the gear

 

Budget is $300

His usage is movies and tv shows only

 

If amp or dac is needed then its ok but the whole budget should not exceed 300-350

 

 

 

Thanks

Beyerdynamic DT770 80 Ohm + Fiio E12. The slight bass boost works really well for movies, I think, and the comfort is superb.

I use an older pair of HD555's for late night movie watching. I plug em directly into my reciever and use the "headphone" surround mode. They work fantastic for this.... and they can be had pretty cheap.

I now use the D7000 for movies, however before I acquired the Denons I was using the JVC HARX700.

 

They did a better job than the DT880 and HD600 which are considerably more expensive and harder to power, neither gave me that cinematic experience.

 

The Ultrasone HFI-780 was also good, great movie bass but zero comfort.

Just for movies and television, I'd go with the Bose AE2. They have satisfying low-end kick, provide isolation, and are very comfortable. They also have a relatively laid-back sound, which lends itself to multimedia content imho. No esoteric equipment required.

Creative Aurvana Lives would work well.
