Recommendations for closed headphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm looking for recommendations or options for closed headphones with the most, if not all, of the following criteria:

 

- Closed

- Around the ear

- Strongly prefer velour or real leather or fabric earpads (and headband). No pleather; it flakes.

- Good for low to moderate volume listening.

 

Not so important but would still like it to have:

- A balanced sound (bass, midrange, treble).

- Detailed sound

- Decent soundstage

 

- Budget is less than $300.

 

I have the Beyerdynamic DT770-80. My only complaints are the pleather headband and the bass can be overwhelming sometimes.

 

I mostly play first-person shooters.

You might not have much luck finding a closed-back headphone with decent soundstage.

 

I currently have the ATH-A900X, and those have a decent soundstage for a closed-back headphone. Their market price has dropped drastically recently, you could probably pick one up for about $150 or less. Definitely gives the DT770 and 880 a run for its money.

 

If you're open to open-back headphones, the Sennheiser HD 598 would be a good choice, right up around $250 on Amazon.
