looking for headphones

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

hi, im new here and i need your help please

my old BEATS STUDIO(which disappointed me a little) broke and now im headphone-less  

im looking for the best OVER-EAR headphones i can get in 200$

i think my music style is very versatile (but mostly rock) bass is very importent to me as long as

its not muddy  and not overpowering the song (i wouldnt call myself a basshead)

and one last thing, its very importent that they would be comfortable for a long periods of time.

thank

The HD 380's do get a bit hot yes. But don't need an amp at all in my experience.

 

Audio-Technica ATH-M50's deserve a look.

 

For me, headphones get hot if they have leather/pleather on them. Velour is hard to find in a sub 200 dollar can.

 

Oh wait, what am I saying? I just remembered the Sennheiser HD 598. It is open back though.

i did a little reading and found a number of headphones.... tell me what you think:

1.HD 380 - that you offered

2. ATH-M50 - this was my first choice before this thread but i was having second thoughts about them

                        as far as sound goes.

3.V-MODA M100/LP2 -  out of my range but those look like the BEST for me so i checked out the LP2 and

                                           they dont seem bad at all (the m80 are ON-EAR and i dont know if it will suit me and feel cofortable)

about the HD 598 - an open back is not for me because i want that the sound wont leak

Hmm. I don't know anything about V-MODA headphones really. I thought I read they were bassy?

the LP2 are quite bassy for my understanding but the M100 are more detailed (still a little bass)

so the M100 are really what im looking for but the price is not for me so if you know any headphones

with a similar qualities please let me know.

what is your opinion on the m50?

Only listened to the m50's once. At a loud party. And I might have been drinking. :veryevil:

 

From what I could tell the m50's were quite neutral with an impressive lower end extension and possible slight bass hump. But I would not call them bassy like I would call some other phones bassy.

This is the most i can do with my budget:

Sennheiser HD 380 Pro
Audio Technica M50
Denon AH-D400
Ultrasone HFI-580
Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 32

Do you have any comments/experience/knowledge about some of them?(without an amp!!!)

HD 380 is fine without an amp

M50 is fine without an amp

 

DT 770 32 Ohms I imagine gets better with an amp. I have the 80 ohm and the 250 ohm, and even though they are higher impedance, I think the DT 770 design craves current. But it is a NICE closed phone that is super compfy too.
