Hello, I have searched the internet and these forums for hours looking for a good pair of headphones to buy, but there was just too many varied opinions for me to decide. I am trying to become a producer of both Electronic/Dance music and Folk/Acoustic music, and my only audio output to make it will be headphones.
I just bought Sennheiser HD-25-1-ii for 250$
They sound very good, but a few months ago, and I know everyone hates them and they have a horrible rep to audiophiles, but I was using Dre Beats Studio and loved the sound of those more, even if it was only cause the built in bass boost and altered frequency responce. I still was able to hear everything super crisp and clear, and with the Sennheisers the bass isn't as profound, and it all seems a little muddier- I can't really hear zone into the parts of a song in a crisp clear isolation or w/e. Plus I saw a video of Skrillex mixing a song with them with Beats and it made me want them more lol.
Here is the best I've found through all my searching, even in other similar topics to this. I am hoping this week to return the Sennheisers and use the money towards one of these, I am having A LOT of trouble deciding:
(And yes I really do like beats by dre)
Beats by Dre Studio
Beats by Dre Pro (haven't heard these yet)
Sennheiser HD8 DJ http://en-us.sennheiser.com/on-ear-headphones-stereo-hd8-dj
Sennheiser HD7 DJ http://en-us.sennheiser.com/dj-headphones-over-ear-stereo-hd7
HiFiMAN HE-400 http://www.head-fi.org/products/hifiman-he-400
Also very important note: I know it helps a lot but I DO NOT WANT TO AMP. I only want to carry around a headphone and a chord.
Any help and knowledge you know about any of these or other recommendations you can give will be greatly appreciated!!!
