I have several headphones in mind..Can't decide..

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I am in a dilemma about which headphone to buy..

Here is my list:

 

JVC HARX 900

JVC HARX 700

Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000)

Koss Pro DJ100

Sony MDR V6

Sony ZX700

 

I also considered the CAL!, but it has poor isolation..So that is taken out...

EDIT: I've heard that the V6 is quite neutral, so maybe that wouldn't be one of my choices.

 

Here is a reference to help me decide..

I mostly listen to EDM and today's pop music..

I prefer a bit more bass and highs..

I don't know if I'm saying this right, but I prefer a bigger/wider soundstage?

 

Thanks!

Bump.

If you want bass for EDM take a look at AKG K619.

There aren't many (if any) headphones under $100 that have good quality bass reproduction.

 

Generally a big soundstage can only be found on big headphones, like AKG K240.

I have the JVC HA-RX900, they do have a good soundstage and a slight warm sound to them IMO. I mostly listen to electronica, they sound good with hip hop too.

Do you think the HARX 900's beat all of the headphones listed?

Depending on your budget, your sound preference might be like HD650 sennheiser(no isolation). Or Beyerdynamic custom one pro and ATH'50(both same budget).

Or DTX501p(affordable on-ear). You can't get good soundstage from closed back design.

Interesting that you mentioned the DTX501ps because I've actually never heard of those beyers before... Do they sound good?

How much worse does a closed back design compare to an open back? I really have to sacrifice a little bit to get some isolation and sound leakage.

Those beyers have very deep hi-fi bass as described by dale, have good highs extension tough slightly harsh, the mids is slightly thin and recessed, i got them for $80, good deal especially it comes with carrying case. i use it mainly in gym, walking and not for home-use.
Test it yourself if you are after on-ear portable headphone.

Thanks for the reply! I'm mostly going to be using this at home, so I would prefer a bigger headphone that is still portable.. From your first post my budget will definitely not range towards the M50s.. I am mostly referring to prices from Amazon.com

If you are using it at home, save up your money and buy a decent open-backed headphone like HD600 , HE-400, Beyerdynamic DT880. Or if you really have tight budget, Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro is good for your needs , it has adjustable bass port too.

My budget is anything below $70 including shipping on Amazon.. So I am on an extremely tight budget..

loook up for Creative Aurvana Live, noontech zoro or Beyerdynamic DTX501p, and you can be slightly be more flexible in your budget to get the best option available. Those headphone I believe are $80 or below.

The CAL! has poor isolation and the beyers seem a bit small..If I crank up the volume on the CAL!, will it absolutely tune out the world? Sorry but im really picky..I considered the Panasonic HTF-600-S, but it has very bad leakage..

I think you might as well look up for Koss headphones, but you must be ready for sound leakage, or else Beyer dtx501p is a great choice.

Alright so I have did some more research and I have compiled a new list of headphones...

 

Koss DJ100

JVC S500

CAL!

Philips CitiScape Downtown

Sennheiser HD428 or 429

JVC HARX 900 or 700

AKG K81DJ

 

I'm not really liking those beyers that you are recommending me they seem a bit small and I want something bigger..
