What headphone should I get?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hello, I what to buy my first pair of over ear headphones. I decided to get over ear headphones because I kept on breaking in ear headphones. I went through 2 pairs of AKG K350 one pair of UE 600, one pair of Shure 215, and one pair of beats tours in a year. I have no idea what to buy. I want to be able to listen to music in a Starbucks or a library so no leakage. I usually listen to classic rock and some blues so I don't need too much bass but something acceptable. I don't really have a specific budget so all recommendations are welcome. Thanks

Vmoda Crossfade M100. Good looks and sound. It's a basshead headphone tho. The very popular Ath M50 is a good choice as well. Very good rating.

I hardly listen to any bass heavy music. I definitely prefer clarity over warmth.

HD600 is a BAD choice, it's open backed.

 

OP give a price range or people will recommend very expensive headphones.

Oops, sorry. Didn't read the description properly. The Alpha Dog looks interesting.

Warmth and clarity are not opposites, though I know what you mean: cooler models tend to be clearer. So a warmer clearer model would be SRH840, which is a really good all rounder, and it's what I would recommend. It's also very durable, since you don't want that to be an issue.

The parrot mysik is a nice option, no amp 400$, it does not leak too much at high volume and have active noise reduction

Or I would get a fiio amp and some mad dogs 3.2 (I guess it will be fed by a phone or mp3)
No sound leakage, and a nice sound for 299 + 100 $$$

Audio technica ath a 900x is nice too 229 $
