Advice on purchase

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

Im looking into buying new headphones and i wanted your advice on the matter. My budget is approx. 150 - 200 euros and i want to make the best possible choice on the matter. I need the best possible audio quality on the predefined budget. I currently own sennheisers RS180 wireless but i dont see them having much time left on them.

 

Furthermore i like the headphones being a bit bassy but not excessive ;). Can you suggest to me some models?

 

Thank you and looking forward for your advice.

Hello!

I would say, the UE6000 suit your needs but would love to know what is it that you like and dislike about the RS180?

basically what i didnt like about them is the charging part :). also i find volume that these headsets deliver not enough. they provide good sound though but i need better.

 

im leaning towards corded headphones of a good brand like sennheiser, akg etc.

Hmm... If it's possible for you to get a MOMENTUM at your price, it's a smart choice!

If that's the case, I would suggest:

 

Sennheiser Momentum

AKG K550

PSB M4U1

Shure SRH 840

 

Hope it helps!

I would suggest some neutral sounding headphones like beyer dt 880's or ad900x. also do you have an amp because some of the 880's need a bit of juice

Yep! The 250Ohm and 600Ohm version of DT880 requires an amp.. A powerful one! Preferably tube smily_headphones1.gif

The 250 ohm dt880 requires a powerful tube amp? First I've ever heard of it.

DT880

HD600

 

If you like a little bit of treble coloration, the beyer will do it. Otherwise HD600 is one of the most balanced headphones I've ever owned in my long time doing this.

 

Momentum is a blast though, love that headphone especially the on-ear version for going around town. If I didn't own CIEM's I'd go Momentums honestly heh.
