Ask you for advice on some portable headphones

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I must choose mine next pair of portable headphones since I lost the previous ones so I'm asking you for advice. What I favor the most is 'detail', an 'open and large soundstage' (yes I know it's difficult to get on portable headphones, I just want to find the best for the category) and sound must not be muffled since I like clear sound. Would like a pair that do not sacrifices any frequencies, do not like bass that cuts on mids or a boomy bass. Must be foldable.

 

I have found these: beyerdynamic DTX 501, AKG 430/451, Sony ZX600, ATH-WS55, Sennheiser HD 229/218. Please help me to find the ones that will make me happy. :ksc75smile:

 

Thank you for your support.

 

P.S.: I'm currently using a pair of AKG 430 and I must admit that I'm not very happy about them. They aren't bad but soundstage is small and aren't much clear. Can't understand the 5 stars on What Hi-Fi.

I believe that the best headphones for under $100, is the Logitech UE6000's

Over-the-ear headphones are out of my range, I'm searching for on-ear headphones because need portability.

 

The UE 4000 would be the option but heard that they give out a muffled sound.

Aha.

 

Then the Noontec Zoro HD should be what you are looking for.

They are available, but I heard about a weak midrange performance 'Other genres - particularly anything with a lot of mid-range guitar, violin and vocal lines - highlight a weakness in the mid-range, where there's slight muddiness and a lack of definition'. Every review I read highlight midrange weakness. Is it really superior to the other headphones posted above? (particularly compared to the beyerdynamic DTX 501 and Sony ZX600, I've read unanimous appreciations on these two).

No other feedbacks? I know I could be seen as very picky. It's because I am. :tongue_smile:

 

I do listen most '70s/80s' (Disco/SynthPop/NewWave, etc.) and 'Rock' (Classic/Blues/Psychedelic/Progressive, etc.). I'm a bit lost since a cannot ever find what I search for. Even AKG 540 do not please me. :frown:

 Sennheiser is a high-end brand, try those out.

Yes, I'm more leaned towards Beyerdynamic and Sennheiser. Those are brands that at least guarantee no muffled sound, I think.
