    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...

    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...

    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...

    Bose AE2 Appreciation thread

    I give these headphones 5 fricken stars. I have used and adored the Bose AE2 headphones for years. When I say I've used them for years, I mean I've really USED them. I have no doubt that I've used these headphones for thousands of hours. They work for everything. I fall asleep with them on every...

    I don't understand the sennheiser momentum headphones

    I got these headphones with the idea that they were going to be great all around headphones. These were supposed to be the upgrade to my bose headphones; my smelly, 1000s of hours of use, beat up pieces of junk. So now that I'm actually using these, what the hell is the hype all about? They...

    Sennheiser Momentum vs V-Moda M-100

    I purchased the Sennheiser Momentum headphones after being disappointed with the Sennheiser Amperior headphones. While these headphones are nice, I don't think they're everything I'm looking for. I'm curious about the  V-moda M-100, because apparently it has better build quality like the...

    Should I get the sennheiser momentums?

    I recently returned the sennheiser amperior headphones because they were too congested, didn't have enough instrument separation, were too uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time (read my review here http://www.head-fi.org/products/sennheiser-amperior-on-ear-headphones/reviews/9144) and...

    Please help me find an alternative to the Amperior

    I like the amperior's sound a lot, that's not why I want to return them. It has a very clear, upfront sound, with good bass, and good imaging. However the thing can't be worn for more than a couple hours without ear ache. I'm looking for an alternative with good sound, portability, and around...

    Good DAC and AMP combo for AKG K240 and Sennheiser HD 558 with possibility of headphone upgrade?

    I have the FiiO E7 but I feel kind of half ass'd using this portable amplifier as my main desktop DAC and AMP. I was thinking of returning it and getting the schiit magni and modi. Then that would make my AKG K240 sound really good and my Sennheiser HD 558. Also this way I could upgrade in the...

    Good Dac and Amp for Sennheiser HD 558 and AKG K240 with possibility of future headphone upgrade?

    I was curious to know if I should get the Schiit Magni, and get the Modi (or something lower grade later) to power my current headphones.    Would the Magni go good with these headphones? I'm currently using the FiiO E7 but I feel a little half ass'd with this thing. also, would the Magni...

    FiiO E7 opinions

    I recently purchased the FiiO E7 for 60 bucks used on amazon. I haven't really seen any opinions on this amplifier. I use a pair of sennheiser HD 558 and AKG K240 headphones, and I assume this would suit those well, but would the E17 or E07K be a better option? Or am I fine and should just save...

    Sennheiser Amperior worth keeping?

    I got the sennheiser amperior AGAIN, because I felt like I somehow wasn't being honest with myself and was over thinking it the first time around. I got them again and I still cannot fall in love with these headphones. I feel that they're uncomfortable, but are all on ear headphones that are...

    I ordered the FiiO E7 for 60 dollars and didn't realize there was the FiiO E07K Andes for just a bit more money. Is the FiiO E7 okay or am I screwed for not getting the Andes?

    AKG K550 vs Sennheiser HD598 vs AKG q701

    Hello. I'm busy trying to decide which headphone is the best option for me. I prefer to carry around full size headphones around my house, but they never leave the house. Therefor isolation is not objective. I listen to a variety of genres, but at the far right end of the spectrum, I listen to...

    Recording quality VS Headphone quality

    This is a question I would like to know the answer to because when I listen to music, recording quality isn't an objective. I enjoy music whether it's poorly recorded or not. Therefor I would be curious to know if higher end quality headphones are worth it if you listen to low quality music...
