Recommendation for closed can headphones?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I've been digging around Head-Fi as guest for some while and now I've decided to join!

 

I'm currently looking for a pair of closed can headphones. I'm big on sound resolution and details, and I'm in for monitor-style sound signature (Currently using a pair of Sony MDR-EX1000). 

 

I've done some research but I'm stuck with three options:

 

MDR-Z1000, MDR-7520 and CD900ST.

 

Would anybody plz help me choose? I know Z1000 & 7520 are almost the same but their sound differs from each other. CD900st has great mid-range but I'm a bit worried about its bass. I listen to a lot of classical music so bass is quite important.

 

Best.

The MDR 7520 is the best--very neutral with extended frequency response.

 

The much less expensive CD900ST provides the most for dollars spent.  It is also an excellent, albeit not quite as good or comfortable as the 7520, studio can.

I hear good things about the Sony MDR-1R and Vmoda m100s

Not if you are looking for a neutral or neutral-ish can.

Yes, both these headphones are known to have slightly emphasized bass.

If you want one of the best your money can buy though, the MDR 7520 is hard to beat.

Hello!

My suggestion is:
PSB M4U1
AKG K550
MA-300


What's your budget? XD

Most closed headphones are slightly bass heavy. Sony V6 would work too. The mdr-1R is neutralish

it is also ted colored sounding like most Grados but I do find Grados to be more "fun" sounding while the 1R are more "reference" sounding xD

What are the difference between MDR-7520 and MDR-Z1000? They are practically the same cans.

I have never heard the older Z1000.  However, my recollection of the reviews is that the Z1000 was less neutral and accurate than the 7520.  In general the Z1000 reviewed below the 7520.
