Looking for a full headphone, help please ^^

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, I'm completely new to this audiophile world and this will be my first good headphone. I've been researching a lot (90% of it were reading past threads on this forum haha), yet still a little confused on what headphone to go for.

 

-$300 budget but can go a little over if strong recommendation (:

-Mainly listen to K-Pop, Pop, Ballad, Mainstream stuff, Hip Hop

-I would say my highest priority would be sound quality

-I prefer the sound to be very clear and vibrant over a little muffled/smooth. I'm sorry if I'm not describing it well

-Vocals are important. I heard some headphones sound great but the vocals are a little lacking

-Doesn't matter if open or closed

-I'll be using it for music, movie, gaming but the main use will be music. And most of the music I listen to are listed above (Kpop, mainstream, hip hop, pop, ballad)

 

 

I've been considering HD 598, AKG Q701, and V-MODA M100. But it didn't sound like I would enjoy HD 598 since I wanted something very clear/vibrant. AKG Q701 seemed like it would fit well but I heard it wasn't too great for the genre of music I listen to? I heard M100 would be great for the stuff I listen to, but it sounded like overall sound quality is not that great when compared with something like HD 598 / Q710.

Hi,

For the genres you've listed you should consider Yamaha HPH Pro 500.

Best Luck!

The Q701 has some bass and forward mids.. it is a studio headphone. 

the HD598 an entry-middle headphone, being less revealing and life-like in comparison to the Q701.

the M100 is a bassy headphone... 

 

Maybe you should consider the Beyerdynamic COP (custom one pro)...

it's a durable and rugged headphone, and you can adjust the bass there to your liking

If you are drawn to the Q701, also consider the AKG K612. I haven't heard them yet, but have heard good things about them as a little bit different sound than the AKG 700 series: http://www.head-fi.org/t/685483/akg-k702-the-classic-vs-k612-pro-the-upstart-review-and-comparison
