Recommend me some new headphones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, 

 

New to the site here, and decided to join as I'm in the market for some new cans. 

First of all, the only remotely decent pair I've ever owned was some Audio Technica AD700's, which were great, however I'm looking for something with a little more bass. My price range would be up to $150US ish, but considering the sales on Amazon at the moment that price range seems to include a lot up to $300RRP.

 

Some options I've been looking at are:

AKG k271 mkII, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 ohm, and Audio Technica A700x.

 

I think I'd like closed cans this time around, but I am a fan of the natural bass of open backs. 

Music tastes are primarily rock, with a little DnB and Dubstep, so bass is quite important. I don't want to own multiple headphones for different music styles so an all rounder would be preferred. 

 

 

Cheers guys,

Filthy

I wouldn't recommend you any headphones in that price range if you have some ad700.  What I would recommend if your looking for more bass is the digizoid zo2  (or wait for the zo3 which is coming out soon).  That should give you the extra bass your looking for.

Sorry I should have clarified, I no longer have the AD700s, I got rid of them a couple of years ago and have been using speakers since, so whatever I buy will be my only pair.

Some version of the audio technica m50's.  Or Sony mdr xb500.
