Should I buy a Philips SHO5300BK ??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello guys,

I'm new here and I've been reading the forum for some months, but now I need to ask some question for you =D

 

I'm in Germany and I have a Samson SR850. The headphone is great, but is unconfortable for me.

I tested a philips SHO5300BK and I loved the shape of the pads, it is very confortable for me. Is this headphone good ??

 

The purpose of the phone is:

1. Games (I like the bass effects in the games)

2. Pop and Rock music

3. Movies

 

I'll pay about U$86 in the phone. Is that worth ??

 

There is some other headphone you can recommend me ??

 

sorry for my english

 

Thank you very much

For that price I would look at the Sennheiser HD 449 or HD 429

It's about the same price as the Philips on amazon.

Yeap, i saw them, but I think the sennheiser HD518 is more confortable.
The 518 is more expensive, but i think it worth the price.

What you think ?

Thank you very much for the reply

Edit: I'll use the headphone with my cellphone sometimes, so the HD449 would be a better choice, right ?

thank you very much GREQ

 

I bought a Sennheiser HD518

I'll use the headphone mostly with a Desktop and a Receiver, so I think this is a better choice.

 

Do I need a offboard sound card ?? or the onboard sound of my Asus Maximus Hero can drive this headphone nicely ??

 

thank you =D

With that mobo I doubt you'll notice much difference with a DAC or even an amp.

I'd say you're all set.
