AT ATH-ES55 vs Beyer DTX501p

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

Looking to get a pair of new headphones for my gf for her birthday. Looking at these two portable closed-backs. They're both around the same price from my research.

 

She listens to all types of music (rock, hip-hop, acoustic), and imo would probably prefer a livlier headphone to a neutral sound.


What do you guys think? And are there any sets that I should look at beyond these two?  Important factor includes compact size and aesthetics, so no huge cans.

I see alot of love for the JVC HA-S500/400 as well. Do they wear wide on your head though? They look like fairly thick cans
