Hi I'm looking for a over the ear headphone under 200 dollars?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi I've recently owned Audio Technica M50, Creative Aurvana,Sony V-6 and panasonic 600 in the past. Comfort is a great issue for me since what's the point of a headphone if u can't wear them?

 

Recently though I tried out the creative aurvana headphones since it had great comfort. Maybe its the sound signature but I got tired or felt uncomfortable when using creative aurvana live. Also it just didn't have enough bass to it compared to the M50 and the Sony V-6.

 

I know many people say the M50s are overrated and since they are too uncomfortable for me as well, I am wondering if you guys have any suggestions for a replacement headphone?

 

I looked at the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 250 ohms and I see a lot of people suggesting that it's better than M50 and that it has incredible comfort.

 

What do you guys suggest?

 

THANKS I APPRECIATE IT!!

Hello!

You will need a big boys amp to drive the DT770 250Ohm version. Other choices available are UE6000. If have everything you need and pretty much a full upgrade from ATH-M50. You do not need a battery to play music unless you wanted the Actice NC.

Hope this helps!

Definitely helped! :)

 

What did you mean by big boy amps though? Because currently i'm using a E6 and if that isn't adequate I don't mind upgrading to meet the requirements

Ah I see so a E6 probably won't work... hmm I just ordered the Beyerdynamic 770 DT 250 Ohms and it'll arrive tommorow...

 

i'll try and pair it up with my E6 and see what happens ;)

 

thanks for the replies!

The Fiio E6 can drive the 250-Ohm Beyers, not sure how long the battery charge will last.

The C&C BH does well with the DT770s, too.
