    Headphones that isolate well around the 100-200+ dollar range?

    That could be an option, I've never looked into those before. Can they sound as good as over ear headphones? I'm sure they do isolate very well, but I also hear they're worse for your ears.

    Headphones that isolate well around the 100-200+ dollar range?

    So, I live in a pretty crowded neighborhood. I don't usually take my headphones outside with me that much because all the cars and traffic and stuff ruins the immersion of whatever music I'm listening to. So I'm clearly looking for something that isolates well from sound, that's my number one...

    Static electricity is trying to destroy my headphones

    So I was laying on my floor reading my kindle, listening to steve roach, when I was trying to reach something that was a bit out of reach. So I slid on my stomach to get it, but the static electricity fried my headphones. I thought they were busted, sound only came in through one side, unless I...

    The next logical step up from the Sony MDR-V6?

    I have been using these headphones as portables for the last couple days since my sennheiser momentum headphones chord broke. I have been really enjoying the sound and feel of the sony mdr-v6. they're on ear but they feel really comfortable for some reason. their sound is balanced yet packs a...

    How do you define which headphones are most "genre specific"?

    I dunno. I'm totally at a loss for what I might want to get. I wish I could get the Shure SRH840, but those are huge and have a coil cable. I wish there was something like the sennheiser amperior but around ear.

    How do you define which headphones are most "genre specific"?

    I definitely want full size. I can't stand on ear or ear buds. If the v-moda xs were over ear I would go right for those. I don't want the v-moda if it has recessed mids and that stupid dance music bass boost. I hate dance music. Another thing I hate is how people say the grados are good for...

    Does anyone know ways of identifying a fake Sennheiser Momentum?

    I am definitely not talking about those.

    Does anyone know ways of identifying a fake Sennheiser Momentum?

    So I have had these headphones for a year and I wrote a review of them today. I was unimpressed with the build quality and eh about the sound quality. Someone suggested that I check the inside of the headphones for a white sticker with a number on it which you can see...

    My Sennheiser Momentum's chords have crapped out. Tired of these headphones. I want new ones.

    I guess I just want something that packs a heavier punch. I don't think people around these parts are accustomed to the kind of punch I'm used to. I like ear blasting metal and punk, and I see people who are all about dat BASS talking about electronic music. So do you see the discrepancy here...

    My Sennheiser Momentum's chords have crapped out. Tired of these headphones. I want new ones.

    Will having tons of bass really improve the sound quality when you're listening to something like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOsigNL2oOk   I hear innerfidelity talking about the v-moda as if they were good headphones for electronic music. I don't listen to any electronic music.Same...

    How can I prevent my cords from getting destroyed by my office chair?

    a long cord is necessary though because I like to lay in bed while watching videos on my computer and sleeping with music playing through my headphones

    How can I prevent my cords from getting destroyed by my office chair?

    I have to replace the cable on my Sennheiser HD650 headphones because it got run over so many times with my chair, now sound only comes through one side of my headphones. Since I have to replace the cord I'm stuck using my Sennheiser 598 headphones (which are honestly still very good). Anyone...

    Humming sound in my new headphones

    because the amp was making a stupid amount of buzzing it seems to have gone away completely again though. Whenever I leave it turned on or I just turn it on it tends to make the ringing.

    best headphone amp for the sennheiser hd600 or hifiman he400?

    I will only be using the dac and amp for my headphones I already have an amplifier for my speakers.  I don't see how space limitations could be a problem, unless the amp and dac is fricken huge. My source is my computer, 320 kbps mp3 files.

    Sennheiser HD600 vs Hifiman HE400 and what is the best amp for either of these?

    Thank you, this helps. I don't want fatiguing when I'm listening to music and I do remember the HE-400 doing that to me when I owned it for a couple weeks. Then again people are telling me that the HE-400 is a good choice. I guess I'm kind of concerned that the beyerdynamic dt880 would be a good...

    Hifiman HE 400 vs Sennheiser HD 600

     /g/ says that the Sennheiser HD600 is better and the HE-400 has distortion and is breakable or something. So I guess I'm gonna go with the sennheiser.

    Hifiman HE 400 vs Sennheiser HD 600

    What I'm really curious about is if the m&m combo would power either of these headphones to a decent percentage of their potential.

    best headphone amp for the sennheiser hd600 or hifiman he400?

    I'm looking for a pare of dac and amps for under 300 dollars and I hope that these will work well enough for these headphones. Will they?
