Need help finding best 325$ heatphones,

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi.

 

 

Need a new pair of over ear headphones to replace my broken Sennheiser HD380 Pro.

I've set 325$ (2000 NOK) as the target, but if it's worth it i can stretch it a bit.

 

I'm listening to a lot of different stuff, but i listen mainly to symphonic metal, hard rock, classic rock, metal core and acoustic guitar. But i can also put on opera and piano stuff.

Examples of artists:

Epica

Halestorm

The Agonist

Bullet for my Valentine

Automatic Loveletter

Ancient Bards

Dire Straits

Within Temptation

Bon Jovi

Nightwish

Guns N' Roses

Bonnie Tyler

AC/DC

 

The headphones will be used on my macbook, iphone, and on an Yamaha LS9 Mixer.

In my not very experienced opinion, you would be better off getting a budget headphone (100-160usd) and combining that purchase with the Magni and Modi from Schiit Audio.

 

The budget headphone might sound worse, by itself, compared to your Sennheiser headphones, but with the good amp and dac, you'd at least be equal, and have more versatile equipment for future headphones.

Forgot to mention that they will mainly be used on the go, I'm using my hifi-sound system at home.

There is no problem cranking up the budget to 400$ (2500NOK) btw.
