Looking for help with full size HP for Clip+ (100$ - 200$)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello. I want to ask you guys about headphones to my Sansa Clip+.

I'm looking for a comfortable over-the-ear/on-ear headphones, between 100$ and 200$ (+/- 20$), with nice design, and sound. My types are:
 

- Sennheiser HD439 (now my favorite, from this list, mostly because this velours pad's)
- Sennheiser HD449 (nice too, but 439 i think are more comfortable)

- AKG K242 (love the design, but afraid of too less power in Clip. also price [HD439 are cheaper])
- Phillips SHL5905 (nice design, nice price, but don't know how they play)
- Audio Technica ATH-ES7 (also nice design, and sound, but price :/ and scratchy)

- Audio Technica ATH-WS70 (even better looking as ES7, but also this price :/)
- House of Marley (i don't know so much about this headphones)

 

 

I would be grateful for your help, and sorry for my not the best english (i'm from Poland ;))

Best wishes. Tomek ;]

Do you need isolation? How much? What genre of music do you listen to most?

well... i need some isolation ^^. i'll use it outside (inside too ofc). closed headphones, or half-open ;)

music? mostly rap, also some drum & bass, house, techno, rock...
 

this ath-a900x in my country are v. expensive (and i don't want to play with order from usa, or something)

 

is HD439 a good choice? but they are not so much portable :/ (can't put it in to my bag for example)

or maybe one of House of Marley's headphones? (but this less expensive i thins are not so interesting. and for this 150$ i can have WS70 or K242)

439 are a little bit cheaper, and that's +.

or maybe it's good to pay a little more and buy K242 or WS70? i don't know  are they a good choices to Clip+

Hello!

The HD439 are doubt a good headphone for your genre! biggrin.gif other than HD439, UE6000 will do as well but depends on what type of sound signature you like!

Hope it helps!

I'd be worried, too, that the 91db sensitivity of the K242 might need a little more power than the Clip+ to drive them. I just haven't heard them, so I can't tell you.

You might try googling AKG K242 (and K240) with head-fi as keywords, and search some of the threads and see what people are saying.

and what do you people think about philips shl-5905?

there is not so much info about it on web, but they're good looking, cheap, nice build (i think) headphones (also they've a controler on cable, so that's nice)

i think about shl and hd439, and no idea, which one will be better :|

AKG K550s are only 32-ohm, should be very easy for the Clip+ to drive them.

JVC-HA-S500 folding on-ear headphones sell in the USA for $60

 

Also installing the Rockbox firmware on the Clip+ is free and provides more setting for fine tuning audio.

my favorite is my Yamaha pro 400 and that will work well for your music from the clip. Price fluctuates a lot on amazon, brand new from $159-$300. I liked the Senn hd280 at best buy and intend to buy it. Amperior is also a good one.
