closed headphones:denon or ...?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, I want to ask you for a help. I´m searching for a a closed headphones around 150€ for home listening without disturbing my girlfriend :D. I prefer various kind of rock and artrock.

I could try and compare Denon HP 500 and HP 700. I like heights of HP500 and Basses of HP 700. Is there a possibility to buy something what sounds like a mixture of these headphones? I found 4 possible candidates:Denon DN HP 1000,Shure SRH840, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro and Audio- Technica ATH-M50 but I have no possibility to try them. Which one should be the right choice for me? I´m totally new in headphones = all advices are very welcome and appreciated. Thanx a lot. :D

I would give the Philips Cityscape Downtown a listen to.  I own a pair of Denon AH-D2000 headphones and find the Philips more fun sounding and more detailed than the Denon.  They are made well, sound awesome, and can be found for $50 new.  Seriously give them a try especially if you can amp them.

Hmm, I would take SRH-840 over ATH-M50! However, There is a lot more better headphones if you are looking for fun sounding headphone for rocks. One of My favorite, HD439 XD If not, UE6000. I love MDR-7506 for rocks but since you are looking for some bass, then it's not what you will appriciate.

Look no further than Soundmagic hp100!! their sound compares to 400 dollar headphones....  Real nice and smooth with a good amount of detail.

Thank you very much for your opinion. I like basses, but not over all: HP 700s had had nice basses for me, but highs had been sounded like "wrapped into some kind of cover" = a bit suppressed for me, in comparison with HP 500s. :)

If you prefer small dimensions another great option would be Beyerdynamic DTX501p. A little bit dark treble (relative to midrange) but very good sound quality in the opinion of all reviewers on the net!

Good Luck!
