Portable Closed Headphones

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Been looking for a pair of closed headphones for portable use. I have been looking at these. Custom One Pros, Shure SRH440/840 and Sony Prestige MDR-1R. I mostly listen to Metal, acoustic and dubstep. So what ones would you say would suit my needs more? Also i would be open to suggestions.

Any particular reason?

 

They make some really good portables, each of which has a different sound signature than the others.

The Momentum (mentioned above), the Amperior, and the HD25 I ii - the original or the new version in aluminum.

 

The V Moda Crossfade M80 is another good choice..

Tried the Sennheiser HD598's and i didn't like it so i haven't really used Sennheiser sense and i will look into the V Moda Crossfade M80.

Hello,

 

If I have to choose only out of those mentioned headphone, I will go for the SRH-840

 

Hope it helps

For $200, SRH-840, AKG K167 is a really good choice for your needs.

The Shure 840's are a good choice for the types of music you mentioned,

and good sounding all around.

Only thing - to me, anyway - is that they're large; hardly "portable".

They are a pretty big set of headphones and not light in weight either.

But if you can deal with that, go for them.

Cool do report back when you got them! biggrin.gif

As for portability, they fold up for storage. No big deal IMO

Yeah i heard that but if i don't like them i can send them back. Three times in the next month i am travelling "plane" back and forward from UK to the US so that will be something like 10hours journey :biggrin:
