Recommend me a closed back foldable headphones

  1. androidodo
    What's up, guys?
    I need a headphones to travel with, but suitable for audio works (mixing, editing) as well. So, DJ cans or gaming headphones are not an option. Preferably in a higher end of the line compared to my MDR-V6 and AKG k240. It should be a closed back design and must be foldable.
    My initial choices are: HD380 Pro, Shure SRH940, or ATH M70x. I tried the M50 and M50x, but don't like the excessive bass on them. The M70x are supposed to be more flat/neutral.
    Does anyone has experiences with them? I'm open to other recommendations.

    You might look into an NAD HP50 or, if you want more emphasized bass, take a look at a B&W P7.

    Not sure about availability in my place, but I'll take it into consideration.

    ATH M40X is actually a M50X without the bass IMO. It is cheaper also. Have u tried it?
    M40X is extremely neutral and very ideal for studio work to hear what the artiste intended.
    But i personally find it boring to listen to music with it. Isolation is above average. The pads for M50X I heard are a bit different from the M40X and the M40X is quite uncomfortable for me after long listening sessions (I wear specs).

    I think I tried one. Can't remember if it was M40x or M30x though. :beyersmile:

    For audio production (creating, mixing, editing, etc), why not just keep using the Sony MDR-V6?

    I'm keeping the V6, but I have reasons to get a new pair of headphones :smile_phones:

    USD 200-250. Used cans are okay.

    Audio Technica ATH-ESW9 headphones, sometimes used ones are sold on Ebay.

    M70x indeed have flatter bass than 50x, good bass IMO if you can get a seal. However they are quite bright in the treble. I'm not a mixer but IMO sort of 'over-detailed' . Also IIRC they fold flat, but not inward (this is how the case was arranged at least).
