Sony MDR-1R or ATH-WS99

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I've been researching for a few weeks and I'm about to buy my first pair of headphones.

 

I came down to these 2 headphones, I listen to Hip-Hop/Rap...Trance/House/Dubstep/EDM

 

Anyone has an opinion on either of these?

 

Thanks for the help in advance!

Have them both.  The 1r isn't suited for bass heavy genres.  The WS99 has tighter bass, more bass, more bass impact, slightly less mids (the 1r has emphasized mids), and rolled off highs like the 1r.  It's difficult to explain but the WS99 is the better headphone at EVERYTHING, not just Hip Hop/Trance etc.  Well, except for comfort.
