Hey guys my dj friend has 3 pairs of headphones to sell really cheap and I'd like to know which one is the best. I mainly use mine to play around in FL studio/Ableton and listen to all kinds of electronic music.

 

The headphones are:

 

 

1. Sony MDRV55  

2. AKG K81

3. AKG K514

 

 

I know absolutely nothing about headphones and propably won't get a chance to test them myself. You guys are my last hope :P

The K81 and MDRV55 are DJ style and their sound signatures (more bass) will most likely suit your electronic music better than the K514.

 

They also fold for maximum portability which the K514 cannot do at all.

 

All three are over-ear, but the K81 has a cable running from each side as opposed to just the left.

 

I am sure someone with experience can comment on the difference in sound between the K81 and MDRV55.

Hey thanks man! So now it's a choice between K81 and MDRV55.

 

I've read really good opinions about both, some people even say that MDRV are better than beats by dre but I still don't know.

It doesn't take much to be better than beats by dre :P


But between the two, Sony has a reputation for good, clean bass so if thats what you're looking for, go with the sonys. Also, the sonys have the cable on one side, some people find that to be a plus.

Thank you Insayn

 

I too think Sony is a safe option but if someone owns K81 or knows something about them please share your experience I'd really appreciate it :)

 

I don't want to end up getting both :D
