Closed back headphones needed!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone it’s my first post to this forum and I’m looking for a pair of headphone.

 

  1. Location : I will use my headphone 70% of the time to listen music on my laptop (asus g73) in my apartment where i’m not alone so I want a closed back headphones. The rest of the time I will use them on the go with my Ipod nano(I've got no ampli), on my longboard or bike and at the university (so a rugged pair will be a must).
  2. Budget: I could stretch to 250 $ max
  3. Music: I listen of everything but mainly Rap, punk, rock, dubstep. I like to have some bass, but I use often my headphones for watching movies.
  4. For the moment I have the Phillips Stretch TR55LX

 

For now I can think of the Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro 32, Beyerdynamic custom one pro, the ultrasone HFI-780 Sony MDR-1R, Denon AH-D1100 and the Philips uptown. If you have other suggestion it will be really appreciated!

 

Oh, I almost forget, I have glasses, if you have some idea of headphones that are more comfy and forgiving.

I have a pair of AKG 272 MKII that I use for listening to movies and playing games. Very comfortable for hours of listening, especially with the velvet pads. You also get a detachable 3m cable and 5m coiled cable.

 

Here is a review

Nice idea, thanks!

 

From what i've read this is the list that I have at this moment.

 

AKG K271 MK2

Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 (With a Fii0 E7 maybe...)

Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro

Ultrasone HFI 580 

AKG K550

 

If needed I could buy an portable ampli if my price tag is kept.

Hey, I need some help, I can't decide between the AKG K271 MKII and the Beyer DT770 pro 80ohms. I will also buy the Fiio E07K for amp/dac. 

 

So for my listening habit, which one is the best.
