Need help choosing headphones

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a set of headphones because I am new to this. I listen to a lot of Alternative and Hip-Hop. I want something that can get the job done and can last. I am probably going to be using them mainly at home but I want them to be able to use on the go as well. I prefer if an amp is not necessary and if it has good or decent isolation it would be a plus, but not necessary. My budget is ~$250. Thank you for the advice and help in advance.

Hi,

 

You should consider Shure Srh-840.

Natural sound, good bass response, detailed highs. Also good confort and isolation.

(Extra pads and detacheable cable)

 

I've read good things about Soundmagic's HP100 but I haven't tried them yet.

 

Best Luck!

Beyer Custom one pro. It does have 3 different slider positions to adjust the sound to your liking.

The custom one pro is an amazing value for home or on the go computer use but I don't know if I would recommend it for commuting etc. The noise isolation isn't the greatest (no active noise cancellation) and it really needs a better amplifier than a phone or iPod can provide. The bass good but would likely be drowned out by background noise while on-the-go. I would recommend the Bowers and Wilkins C5 in-ear headphones. They're what I use for on the go but they are also great with a computer.

Beyer COP hard to drive? really? they are low impedance 16 ohm. I agree that they are big for outdoors use.

If you like onear Headphones too, I would throw in Sennheiser HD25.
