Beats Studio vs Quietcomfort 15

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have $300 to spend and I've been thinking of selecting either the Bose Quietcomfort 15 or Beats Studio, I'm a constant listener to Dubstep and the main factors in my choice are Sound quality, Comfort, Bass, and Noise canceling in that order. I can be a little forgiving on the sound quality as the only other headphones I've owned are Bose OE2. Please help me out in choosing, and I'm always open to suggestions for other headphones around the same price or less.

Beats are not welcome here = D

 

Best you can do is getting V-Moda Crossfade M100 if you want powerful bass, but still good sound quality and extreme built quality and warranty.

 

Other good options are Yamaha HPH-Pro 500 and AudioTechnica ATH WS99.

 

Best Luck!

Both can be used (especialy the Beats) if you have ZERO interest in Soundquality.

 

Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwdzzhlpXBk

 

The UE 6000 come for 1/3 of the Beats Studio price (since Logitech is dumping their UE producs for half price. 99€ insteat 199€ for the ue 6000 here), sound way better, and have a better/higher build quality.

 

But tbh, why would you need noise canceling? What exactly are you using them for, when and where? on what devices?

Closed Headphones can isolate by themself pretty well.

 

i would also suggest some V-Moda M80/100, maybe Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro, which has an excellentz build quality, where the beats looks like a plastic toy from Mc Donalds in comparision.

 

What Bass you want? a good quality? MUCH bass (high quantity)? For example, the beats phones have ALOT of bass, but the bass quality itself is pretty poor compared to the price.

May be Sennheiser PXC 450

You can find many options, if you are looking noise isolating headphones. For example, DT 770 32 ohms

I'm looking for good quality bass. I'm not really a fan of the high quantity bass that almost every Beats model has. And the noise canceling doesn't need to be the best available, but I would like to have some sort of isolation. The Bose OE2s that I have aren't very good at noise canceling, so that's a factor I really want to improve on when I'm upgrading in headphones. Sound quality is of course another major factor. So restating my factors in choosing headphones in order: Sound quality, high quality bass, and then noise canceling. I'm not mentioning comfort because that's most likely a personal choice, and durability matters as long as it's not built as flimsy and weak.

Well, since you put it that way, you should cross Beats out of your list. PERIOD. If noise cancelling is really an important factor for you, none does it better than the Bose QC15. They are and I reckon will continue to be the gold standard for a long time to come. The UE doesn't even come close to QC's noise cancelling abilities. In fact, the UE's passive is just as good as its active noise cancelling. That said, there are many headphones out there with passive noise-cancelling abilities that rivals some of the so-called active noise cancelling such as the said above V-Moda or the Beyerdynamic DT-1350.
