I need Headphone recommendations that i can buy on amazon for $224

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I had AKG Q701's.. They broke. Got my AKG K702's in the mail and they were already broken. I was just wondering if any of you had some advice on another headphone that's equal or greater at the price range. I've had some Sennhiser 595 HD before and felt the AKG were slightly better due to comfort. Any way, if you've got a pair that you just think is the bees knees I'd love to hear.

Hi,

 

You should consider AudioTechnica AD900x

http://www.amazon.com/Technica-ATH-AD900X-Open-Back-Audiophile-Headphones/dp/B009S331VU

 

You should also consider Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro (250 Ohms). This are definitely not as neutral as K7xx/Q701.

 

Technically is a very capable headphone that provide powerful bass and crystal clear treble, their mids are recessed in comparison with the most neutral offerings, but recessed doesn't mean low quality, in fact this are high resolution headphones and their mids are no exception, and shine with most audiophile recordings.

 

Sometimes is not about getting the 'better' headphone, but the one that provide the sound that you are looking for.

 

Beyerdynamic DT880/990 (Pro/Premium) build quality is very good.

 

You could also read about Sony MA900 and SoundMagic HP200.

 

Best Luck!
