post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 

hello forum

i am nima 20 years old from iran

 

well as i am a newbie i would like some help about buying my first monitoring headphone . here are the specs that i prefer :
 

price : maximum 300$

brands : Sennheiser - AKG - Beyer dynamics - American audio

headphone style : i think all of the monitoring headphones are over ear !

and the one that matters is that they should be open.

 

so i hope i have described enough.

I'd include the HD 600 and DT 880 on your list.  Both need an amp.

If you use it for recording, I will recommend DT880 if you have an AMP, if not, go for Sony Z1000, it's more than $300 but you even don't need an amp.

The z1000 (and MDR 7520) are closed.

that helped alot.

but unfortunately most of the brands are rare in my country so my choices are limited :( 

as i have found this forum now  im curious about buying an open one or closed one ... everyone is recommending the closed every where :))))

It depends on the specifics of the job.  If isolation or the need to avoid leaking sound is important, you have to go with closed.
