Which should I go with (Q40/Pro 900/ Other)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Alright, so I want, no, scratch that, I NEED a decent set of headphones. Which of these would be the best option?

Ultrasone Pro 900 vs Q40 with Alpha pads vs something else you can recommend.

Deciding factors:

 

- Has to be closed back.
 

- I use headphones 5+ hours per day, plus wear glasses, so comfort is a big deal.

- I like bass, which is probably obvious given the choices I listed, but I also like female vocals.
 

- Nice Build quality/ durability would be nice, since I tend to go through cheaper headphones a lot (usually plastic snapping at where the earcups & headband connect)

- Max budget $500ish

So between the pro 900 and the q40, which should I choose? Or is there another option that would fall into the same category as those? Was keeping an eye out for any news on the upcoming hdh50 from M-Audio, but don't know if those would be something entirely different sounding than the q40.

Wow. 500$ budget and considering the Q40s? Theya re like 100$

 

Seems all bass heavy signatures.....i am considering the COPs and the M100s.

Waiting with buying these because of the Hd H50. No reviews yet.

Lol yeah, if I can get a decent headphone for as cheap as $100 I'll gladly take it, saves me money that I can then put towards an amp :tongue_smile:

I don't know which genres you enjoy but for bass and vocals consider ZMF v2. It's also very durable and, with the pilot pad, very comfortable. The question is whether you want bass extension or bass boom because it has the former.
