Help with choosing good headphones? Thanks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm sure you guys get a lot of these threads so I apologize, but I'm completely unsure which headphones to get now and I am not very experienced in headphones

I mainly listen to hip hop music so the headphones should have good bass

I currently have beats by dre pros which I know are not top quality headphones but they have lasted me over 2 years now and I haven't experienced any problems as of yet, I'm looking to upgrade however

I do some music production as a hobby as well so they should be good for noticing subtle changes in beats as opposed to a more dj oriented headphone

 

I'm not against an open back headphone or a closed back

Only other request is that it's able to be used on my laptop/iphone without an amp or something else to plug in, like it has a 3.5mm jack not something that I need extra equipment to use

I'm willing to spend up to 750-800 for a good pair because I want this to be one that has top sound quality and will last

Thank you for all the help I appreciate it!

Beyerdynamic T5p - this is a closed back headphone.

 

Edit - Found a low-impedance open back or two - Grado's GS1000 or PS500

Ok so I've done a bit of research and I really like the aesthetics of the Grado headphones and the reviews users give of each make me believe they're all quality headphones.

Now I just need help choosing between them, what are the differences between 

Grado Rs1

Grado Ps500

Grado Gs1000

 

Thanks
