Best Closed Headphones? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I would not recommend the A700s. They do have better bass than the ad700, but bass in ad700 is a joke anyways. Besides, why would you want two headphones that are almost the same? For $100, look on ebay and you can get a nice set of used or refurbished headphones. For example, a pair of new Alienware Ozam 7s (rebadged Ultrasone Pro 550s) won't even make it past $100 in bids most likely. Here what I would look for (all VERY high quality headphones):

DT770 80ohm (Great bass, comfy, high quality)
Ultrasone HFI580, HFI550, Pro550, Pro650, DJ1, DJ1 Pro (Great bass, good isolation)
Alienware Ozam 5 (rebadged HFI 580), Ozma 7
Shure srh840 (good bass as well)
ATH-M50 (great all around headphone, bad for gaming though)

here are some links i can find right now:
