Need recommendations for new headphones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello, so, I'm looking for a good setup with good quality sound. I've been playing guitar and bass guitar for a few years, and it's a bit of a problem getting songs by ear with my actual setup, they're in a bad condition, as i'm not their first owner, and they just don't sound any good.. I'd like something so i can hear and enjoy instruments, in songs and while i plug them to my amp. I mostly listen to rock and metal, but every type of it, from the most quiet and slow rock and blues to the most "hardcore" metal. 

About my badget, It's difficult to say, as I don't reside in the us (actually in Argentina, so there's a lot of price differences) , as mostly everyone in this site. Researching a little bit, based on priced i've seen in locals of my country, i can say my badget it's sourounding on headphones like Sennheiser hd201 or hd202, and their alternatives. 

I try to have the best quality sounding tracks in my gadgets (my pc and android phone), also i luckilly own a decent CD collection of my favourite bands. 

I won't try to put specifications, i only know some stuff like frequency response and impedance, but i think you'll be able to figure those out :) Please let me know if i'm missing something (which i'm sure i am)

Thanks in advanced, i'll apreciate any recommendations.

 

P.S: Sorry for my english, my native language is spanish :P

Welcome.

 

I liked this review: http://www.headfonia.com/sennheiser-hd-202-review/. Bear in mind, that the author likes strong attack, dark treble, and warm bass.

 

If you don't need isolation and can find a cheap pair locally, try Grado 60i.

Thanks! Cool review. By the way, what do you think about the akg k44? Is it too much for me? Or the JVC Harx300?

I'm not familiar with them. I trust Sennheiser to deliver an integrated sound. Since I haven't heard them yet, I would choose HD202-II over HD201 based on that review and the FR chart. Other choices include: Monoprice 8323, if you like bass, and Tascam TH02. Look at the fan pages here for both of them to learn more.
