First "good" headphones

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hey!

I'm new to Head-Fi, and I'm going to get my first "good" headphones.

So, I've read many good reviews about them, but how could I compare them?

Price range is under 200$, so there's a lot of headphones on that smily_headphones1.gif

Here's the list:

Audio Technica ATH-M50
Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro 80 ohm
Sennheiser HD 380 Pro
Shure SRH 840

Feel free to suggest more L3000.gif

Looks like you're looking for closed-back?

 

Audio Technica ATH-A900X beats them all, IMHO.

If you can't buy online but you have a BestBuy, price match.

Grado 225i. Grados are really polarizing around these parts, but if you like 'em, you'll love 'em.

I ended up getting Beyerdynamic DT 770.

I tried like 8 different headphones, and only these felt good on my ears, others, well, my ear was in contact with the driver and it was really disturbing.

Thanks for the suggestions anyway.

+1 for the AT's...I really like the AT sound profile. Grados are good too, but yeah, they're really polarizing. Either you love them or you hate them.

I think your choice is a good one. They're one of my favorite headphones, but I'm a bit of a Beyerdynamic fan.

 

What about the Custom One didn't you like? I've been curious about this headphone for a while and there isn't a store anywhere in the are where I could demo that pair.

That's important to me, too. I returned ATH-M50s because my ears were brushing against the earpad in front of the driver (among other reasons) and it's why I haven't bought some of the Sonys that interest me. On ear somehow bothers me less than over ear with shallow cups.
