    I miss my old headphones, HELP!

    I used to have my beloved headphones called AKG K840 KL However, after being let down by the lack of bass in those headphones, I decided to sell them. Now as I continue to pursue my enthusiasm for headphones, I miss the treble extension and the bright sparkly details in my old AKG cans...

    Can't make up my mind - first pair of "real" cans

    Please excuse my limited knowledge.  I may say some things wrong.   I'm most concerned with balance and good tone across the full spectrum.  If I want extra of anything I can use an EQ.     I mostly listen to indie rock (Ryan Adams, etc), classic folk rock(Neil Young, Mark Knopfler), and...

    are there any comfortable full size with sound signature like the srh 440?

    I've tried the shure 440 and really liked the sound signature, how detailed they are, and how they are easely push from my nexus 4. The thing is that they are not that comfortable for long session. Are there any comfortable full sized with the same type of sound than can be pushed without an...

    Which budget headphone is best for listening across different varieties of music?

    Looking for a good over-ear phone for listening to music ranging from EDM to free form jazz.  Should I look for one with apparently a more neutral configuration like KNS6400 or Shure SHR440? Don't want to spend much more than $100.

    Hey everyone! So I'm looking for a pair of closed-back headphones to compliment my open-back Audio Technica AD700's (which I found out about through looking around on Head-Fi - thanks, guys!). I'm thinking of using the AD700's as a pair to wear around at home, and having the closed-back...

    Do ARK 6400 / 8400 or Shure 840 make good alround headphones.

    I listen to everything apart from rock so want some good all around headphones... Just wondering if these would be good for a bit of everything, they are right at the top end of my £100 budget. I like thongs a bit bassy but would rather have good Mids and highs over just good lows.. So would...
