suggestions on a good set of cans

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Scott here new to this site. Have been searching a lot of different brands and a lot of reviews have led me to this site so I figured why not join to get better help. Any who I've never had a good set of cans generally cheap in ears or iPod docks for music purposes so I'm looking to broaden my horizons and invest in some descent headphones. Looking for over ears and a few I've come across that have gotten good reviews and seem to fit what I'm looking for are the sennheisers hd439 or hd280 pro, Panasonic rp-htf600-s, and JVC ha-mr77x. Any other suggestions are much appreciated!

Are you looking for a neutral headphone or a fun bassy one?

Basshead cans:

M audio q40

sony x10 ( price has dropped a ton)

jvc sz2000

 

Fun (bass is emphasised but not at basshead levels) cans:

Yamaha pro 400 and 500

Donscorpio dolphin

House of marley exodus

Phillips citiscape downtown

Audiotechnica athm50

 

What genres of music do you listen to?

For rock i would probably stay out of the complete basshead side and cross off the house of marley exodus

OK great thanks also these will be used mostly with iPod, phone, and computer if that makes a difference...

The yamaha pro 400 and 500 would benefit from an amp like a fiio e11. It doesnt absolutely need one though.
