Recomendation for Headphones

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone i just wanted to get a recomendation for a headphone that has great detailed sound with awesome thumping bass that goes well with all types of music and also can be used with an iphone 5. my budget is around $400 - $500.

 

any recomendations would be very much appreciated.

On ear? Over ear? In ears/IEM's?

 

I love my Denon D5000's unfortunately they are no longer made...

 

I would also look at the V-Moda M100's

I've been looking into something like an over ear, it doesn't rally matter to me if its on ear or over ear. :]

Try the Dt700 32 ohm version. Pretty good for a closed can.

I can't seem to find that DT 700. I found a DT 770 pro. Is that like an upgrade from the DT 700? Amazon is selling the DT 770 pro 32 ohm but is that worth it? Those v-Modas are also catching my attention.

V-moda m100 or beyerdynamics DT 700?

He meant DT770 Pro 80ohm, there is no DT700 I know of. You could eq the bass of the DT770 to be more but stock the M100's have more bass, and they fold up but they are more money, the DT770's probably have a little better detail. There is also the DT770 AE 32ohm.

 

Some people say the D600's are bass heavy but I don't really think so, For $500 id try to score a pair of used D5000's.

(I believe the poster meant DT770, not DT700)

The Audio Technica ATH-A900X sounds better then the DT770, and as the A900Xs are only 38-Ohm, should be easy for the iPhone 5 to drive them.

Wow 3 headphones to choose from. V moda m100, beyerdynamics DT770pro, or Audio Technica ATH-A900X. I guess i would be considered a bass-head but which of the three has a good punchy bass for sub bass heavy songs but still have that amazing detail to separate that bass for more mid to high songs? Like an orchestra concert for one person. or like eating an In n Out double double(best burger i ever had) being able to taste the lettuce cheeze beef secret sauce easily apart from eah other but still being able to enjoy every bite as a whole. hahaha im not making sense am i? anyway... have there been any issues for any of the three? I seem to be gravitating toward the v moda m100 due to my heavy bass head.

from my own experiences, The V-Moda M100's are the best (though i havent tried the DT770).

Sounds like you should rule out the A900X. They are undoubtedly more balanced than the other two headphones--less bass emphasis.

I only got to listen to the M100s briefly, but I thought them a little bit better headphone than the DT770.

Now save up for a VERZA.  Trust me, when you pair it up with the M-100, it will blow your mind.

Hey I've been reading about getting that vamp/verza. Which one works with the lightning connector for the iPod nano 7G or iPhone 5? I have a Fiio e17 but I am getting the impression that theres something wrong with my setup when I read other threads. Got any advice? That vamp looks so awesome and it seems like its so very worth it.

iPod nano 7G + 3.5 to 3.5 cable + e17 + shure se535
