need rec for headphones comfortable for long use, good noise isolating.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Budget: $200 max (US)

- comfortable for long use (i have a rather large head and ears)

- good noise isolation (will be using this at work to listen to talks and music to block out chatter while I do work)

 

 

currently looking at...

beyer dt 770 pro

beyer dt 990 pro 250

audio technica ath m50

sennheiser hd 439

 

 

thanks!

Go for the ATH-m50's. Although the Sony MDR-1R is better than them.

Digbuy is selling the Audio Technica ATH-A900X for $200

DT-770's, they might clamp hard to start but store them over a book and they will losen up, the M-50's wouldn't be bad either but I would go with the 770's, the Pro 80ohm for bass or the 250/32ohm for just general sound.

 

The 990's are open and won't work

hmm yeah I'm leaning toward the DT770 right now, the ear cups look very comfortable and large. Think it's velvet or something? 

 

$170 on ebay, woo

the DT770s really need a decent amplifier to sound their best.

A Fiio E11 portable head amp. will do the job.
