Which headphone for my girlfriend ?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Hello, my girlfriend is seeking for a set of headphone.

I'm seeking for her.
 

Here some information of what she are looking for:

 

 

-price range: 70€-120€

-Open / Half open : She hate the fact that she can't hear what's going on around her

-Use for both at home & outside, mostly at home.

-No leather pads.

-Over hear (she would like the pads like the sennheiser hd 598 but well, is there other cans that is comfy, why not)

-She love when bass is punchy.

-She mostly listen Vocaloids as music.

-She wont use an AMP/DAC so we need an headphone who dont need to be drove.

 

 

 

I think she might get the akg k240 MK II OR agk k242 HD

 

Any ideas ?

With open back, she does realize that people around her will hear the music also. The K240 are not comfortable. If she like the Senns then why not go with those?

1) She will mostly use them at home, and she hate the closed Headphones and no one will be bothered at their home about her music so there is no problems

2) Well, idk wich senn i should take for her at 90€ range with punchy bass

Very important to note.

 

I would recommend a Sennheiser set, such as the HD555s (I believe they have been replaced by the 558s). I have the 555s and find them to be very comfortable for long periods. The only flaw with these is that the bass is not very punchy. But in terms of vocals and clarity, they are excellent. Not sure what (if any) changes were made from the 555s to the 558s. Likely very similar.

The Hd 555's Seems good, but still looking for the perfect Headphone

Open cans usually don't have impressive bass punch if the listener likes bass

Yeah, i she want HARD BASS (like beats solo or studio), but bass where we can feel them like the fidelio X1.

Takstar HI2050 - open, over-ear, cheap, good SQ, has velour pads and is very comfortable, a little light on the bass impact but quality-wise it's good.  Also doesn't need an amp to drive it.

You can browse Tabao and AliExpress, they typically have the cheapest prices but the shipping might take a while.
