Help with buying Headphones/In ears

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hi guys!

I'm new to this whole thing and I'd like some input on what I should buy. 

 

My preference of music is post-hardcore, metalcore, RnB, dnb, dubstep and trance. 

 

I like Bass but I don't want it to be too overpowering. I also like clarity.

 

My previous experience with earphones and headphones would be: ATH-M50s, Yuin PK3, Yuin G2A, Xiaomi Pistons and the new stock buds from Apple.

 

I'd prefer if what I'm buying could go unamped BUT i'm willing to buy an amp.

 

My budget is about 300-400 dollars so I can buy 1 of each or 1 really good set.

Thanks!

Hey there! I am not super savvy with this topic but I like the ATH-M50

I know you can get them for around $140 in amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-M50-Professional-Monitor-Headphones/dp/B000ULAP4U)

 

I have one myself, these Headphones are the best ones I ever got (if not the best) so far.

UE900, my favorite IEM. They're around $350 on Amazon the last time I checked.

Thanks for the replies!

 

I'll look into the UE900. Is there anything else you guys could recommend? I failed to mention I own all the headphones and earphones I have listed as well,

Can the headphones be open? If so, HE-400 could be a good choice as they are on sale. Check out this review: http://www.head-fi.org/t/634201/battle-of-the-flagships-58-headphones-compared-update-audeze-lcd-2-revision-2-6-4-13#user_HE400

What are you plugging your headphones into? Portable or Desktop? For Desktop I would recommend DT990 Pro 250 ohm and Little Dot mkII. They have good bass and are incredibly clear and detailed. They can be unamped...but they should be. The tube Little Dot enhances the mids and stops the highs from being too sharp. As for portable...no idea, I don't do portable. :bigsmile_face:

If it's desktop, I'll go for the HE-400. They are just so good for the price. Now they're at $299, you could even buy a decent amp.

Ohhh thanks thanks. I looked into them and they all look good. I'd prefer a portable set this time though. I plug my headphones into my iphone 5. I'm fine with both open and closed, but I prefer closed. Any other recommendations guys?

Thanks again

The PSB M4U-1, Sennheiser Momentum, V-Moda M-100 (slightly bass heavy) are all good headphones matching your search criteria.

Polk audio ultrafocus 8000 if you're looking for a little extra bass.

This article should help if you want noise cancelling

Theres the yamaha pro 500 if you're looking for bass and an overall fun sound. The prices on these have dropped significantly.

Okay, I admit my usage of words was not quite appropriate.
