Headphones for Music Production and YouTube Gaming

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey Everybody,

 

I'm new to the forum and was wondering if I could get some advice on headphones. I have a pair of VModa M-100, but is there a better pair of headphones for both of those purposes or better brand? Thanks to everyone and anyone for the help. :)

for music production, you're going to want a neutral headphone. For gaming, youre going to want something with soundstage. Whats your budget? Are you willing to consider open headphones?

^ this, +1

Though, there is one other thing to consider, what kind of music are you producing? Neutral headphones won't work that well if you are a dj or something like that.

$200-$600 and yes i am. I looked at the Sennheiser 650's if they are good at all.

It would be more house and dubstep music.

Beyerdynamic DT880s have a fairly neutral response with a little bit of treble emphasis. They have good sub bass extension, too.

This, with a caveat that you may need to get an amp and maybe even a DAC if you don't already have one.

 

If you have the chance to visit an audio store near you, try the DT880 and a bunch of other headphones.  Know what you want before you walk into the store.  I think that listening to the headphones and experiencing the differences first hand is the only way you can ever be really confident in buying a can.  Of course, coming from NYC, I have the luxury of being able to try out a lot of things. 

 

That being said, the VModa M-100 isn't that bad from what I recall, with a really nice bass.  Once again, try and compare!

The M-100 isn't bad, especially since it's portable. But for desktop, the DT880 might be better.

Unfortunately I'm from KC and the only thing close to a recording studio we have is guitar center, but I will go check out some headphones over there. Thanks smily_headphones1.gif
