Need Good Headphone for $280-500

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Budget: 280-500
Closed or open back: No preference, I know the pros and cons for both
I have read the section below which describes the differences between open and closed back: yes
Portable or non portable: Portable
Sound preference: listen to rap, rock,metal
Durability: decently durable
Isolation: on 1-10, 6
Size:medium to large has to have bigger ear cups then beats headphones.
Ear preference: over ea
What will you be using as the source? (Iphone, computer, etc): phone and compute
Do you have an amplifier for the headphones? No
Any other requests? Maybe Stylish headphones?
Doesn't need to be a Bass Heavy Headphone unless you need to?

I love crisp highs and deep lows also Better Bass Production if its possible?

V-Moda V-100 will fit the bill perfectly or the Phiaton MS500 Bridge is worth auditioning too.

DT770 is reasonably impressive and quite comfortable.

 

One model I haven't tried that seems as if it might interest you is SRH1540. I've been impressed in one way or another with all of the Shures I've tried. It might be too expensive.

 

K550 has big earcups but I doubt it has the bass you seem to want.

 

A couple of Fostex mods (ZMF, MrSpeakers) use bigger pads. Although they're not my go to for your genres, they probably have the bass you want so you might like them.

 

Search for the earcups measurements thread because it might have some useful information.

Oh thanks for this information I heard that the AKG 550 aren't Really Portable will take into-count these headphones to decide which one to get Currently I thinking of getting V-Moda V-100 or DT770
