Closed Cans -- Recommendations [$200 ~ less] - Page 2

post #16 of 25

I just got some UE6000 for $69 + shipping.  For that price, they are amazing.  Very comfortable but pads are memory foam/pleather.

I'm not sure that I'm honestly into 'pleather' when it comes to headphones. Velour is just so nice feeling on the ears..

Pleather seals better, sometimes looks better, and is cheaper.  Velour is much more comfortable.

 

The UE6000 is nice, OK comfort (they clamp a bit), but not the best under $200.

I'd have to say comfort is somewhat of a priorty for me -- as I tend to wear for long periods of time.

On another note, isn't the MDR-1R out of production?

Who knows. They made the 1r mk2 so it'd be logical to.

Ah, makes sense then..

I forgot to mention the dt 1350 ($178 on amazon) is a fantastic closed headphone although it's over ear. It makes an extremely tight seal - nothing gets in or out. They also recently updated it with more comfortable pads that give you a bigger sweet spot. Be warned, however - they clamp pretty tight.

Are they a torture device like the HD280s? lol -- I had to return those like a year ago, awful.

Edit: Those 1350s look quite similar to the HD25-1 II, interesting.

The new pads definitely help in terms of comfort, but they clamp tight enough that I returned them in favor of the t51p, which has a very similar design but an updated driver and a slightly wider headband. However, a friend of mine solves the clamping problem that the dt 1350 poses by storing the headphones clamped around a desktop speaker which is approximately the width of his head overnight. He says by doing so the clamping force is completely negated, making it one hell of a value, especially if you like that bright, clear, beyerdynamic sound.

I've put my headphones around a basketball before, lol.
