I am looking for new headphones replacing my Sennheiser PX200-II. I love them, but they are quite uncomfortable for me, because at home I started to listen for longer periods than 1 hour. Once I tried bigger over-ear headphone, I felt in love with it and decided that my next headphone will be over-ear.
I had an opportunity to listn to MDR-1R for a few minutes and sound was OK, maybe a little boring for me, but I was listening in shop where was a lot of noise. I loved bulit quality and COMFORT though.
Then I listened to Beyerdynamic DT770 pro 80 ohm and sound was much much better, more details everywhere, deep bass exactly where it should be and I loved built quality and velour cups, but I am affraid of long heavy undetachable cable which isnt very suitable for portable use. Also there wasnt any headphone case included. So I left this choice.
I was convinced for Sony but I found great deal for those Ultrasone. Sadly I cant audition them anywhere.
What do you thing about them comparing to Sony?
I can get: Sony MDR-1R for 136 €
Ultrasone HFI-2400 for 119 €
By the way, I listen mainly jazz, funk and a little bit of hip-hop.
