    What Over Ear To Get?

    Hi All,   First Post. I am a long time audio nut.  I have had the likes of Levinson, Classe, JM Lab and etc... for my 2 channel needs.  A few years ago, I settled in on my Revel Salon, Jeff Rowland, Transparent set-up and love it.  In that time, I found that having a wide/deep/accurate sound...

    Looking for recommendations on headphones.

    I just recently bought the HD 598s and I was not happy with them at all, they're comfortable and look nice but I can't enjoy the sound especially for the 230 dollars I paid.   Are there any other recommendations you guys can give me for less that 250 USD? I use my headphones mainly for PC...

    Headphones for a friend :D (recommendation)

    I have a friend wanting to spent some 100-150$ (max 200) on a headphone (yay!).   They'll only be used in his home, unamped. I have a feeling he would want a somewhat neutral, leaning towards warm, headphone.   I have suggested him the CAL!'s because he can get them for only 55$, which...

    Headphone help!

    Hey guys,   I currently have the Ultrasone PRO 900, and want to try something different. I have already had three pairs of Ultrasones (HFI 580, HFI 2400 and PRO 900). I want the bass of the 900s (or almost), but with a bit more of a refined sound (especially in the mids). I can spend up to...

    Quest to find open/comfortable/bass headphones?

    Hi All -    My main headphones have been the Sennheiser HD-280 pros for the past 7 years. I got them while in college to prevent waking my roomie up at night and used their fold-up design to throw around when I traveled.  While I love Sennheiser, the headphones get uncomfortable pretty quick...

    Basshead open-backed headphones?

    The LCD2/3 is out of my budget, unfortunately.   I find the bass on my HD650's a bit lacking, but people will probably tell me I'm stupid for saying that because apparently they are some of the most bass-heavy open-backed headphones you can get.   I was thinking about the Ultrasone HFI...

    Best headphones for movies and video games? (Preferrably under 400 bucks)

    What's up head-fi'ers. So right now i'm looking for a good set of headphones solely for movies. My Grado SR80i's are great for listening to metal/hard rock music but as far as movies go the treble is a little harsh and there's not enough bass. Even with the bass boost turned on the highest...

    Worst headphones in the world?

    I've gone through so many crappy headphones in the last few years that I have to think about which ones are the worst. I once got a pair of Phillips O'Neills from a Ross in order to get a sale on a shirt, and to my knowledge those are the only headphones I can remember the name of that made my...

    Are HD 598s a great starting choice for headphones? Or..?

    Headphones with equal or better soundstage than AD700 but with significantly deeper bass for <$300

    The title really says it all. Are there any cans out there that sound as great as the AD700's but with much deeper bass? Maybe even basshead levels. I'd say $300 is my budget.

    Looking to get my first audiophile worthy phones/amp and want to see if I'm on the right track (for classical, dubstep, and jazz) <$500

    Hey guys,    I've been doing a bit of research and want to see if I'm on the right track for my first set of real headphones and amp/DAC. My real conundrum is that I mostly listen mostly to classical music and dubstep, with a bit of jazz in there too, so I was thinking open backed but on the...

    I have been searching through threads and through review sites for several hours and find myself going in circles on what headphones I should be looking at buying. I have never spent more than $20 on a pair of headphones before and I am willing to put down $100-$300 for a nice pair. I have been...

    Ultrasone HFI ear cups size smaller than the pro900?

    I have a pair of Ultrasone pro900 for home use. I would like to get a headphone for travel. I have used the pro900 for travel in the past and they are a tad too big and heavy.     I would like to stick with Ultrasone. I am curious if the HFI 780, 680, or 580's would provide a more...

    Ultrasone HFI 2400 silver dragon recabled vs Pro 900

    I'm deciding to buy a new pair of headphones but I cant decide which between those 2. The HFI 2400 is recabled with silver dragon cable by moon audio, its hardwire split modded which is not detachable and the cost is $350. But the 2400 is open headphones so it's kinda bad to listen in some...
