Between these two headphones...

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
... JBL 510 and the Denon AH-D1000, which one would you guys choose? Or for about 150 USD, which one other than those two would you pick? It's for home use, mostly music listening and some gaming.

Thanks.

Well, I haven't heard the Denon headphones, but the JBLs rock. The Denons could still be better but I have no idea.

Sennheiser offers some really nice stuff in that price range. Some gaming and music? You may also want to check out the Audio-Technica A700

Thanks, but I think I can spare a bit more money now, up to about $250 or more but it has to be really worth it. How about the HD595 and the HD600? Does $40 more make that much a difference?

For gaming and general use, the HD595 would be a much better choice than the HD600. The HD600 would be better for classical and such when properly amped, however.

Well that solves that problem between those two, does anyone recommended anything other than the HD595?

Depends on what you want, there's all sorts of good cans for $250. If you listen solely to rock, you could try some higher-end Grados, or for classical or softer rock, there's AKG K701s, there's Beyerdynamics, either the DT770, Dt880, or Dt990... I like Sennheiser, but there are more choices out there.

m11a1, I just bought a pair of these (AKG K601's) for $200 shipped brand new (ebay) and I am blown away by their sound. They have a really rich sound that isn't overly saturated and they boast a patented dual layer diaphragm that puts each instrument exactly where it should be if the band was surrounding you. If you listen to live music at all, I would highly recommend them because of this reason. They're also the most comfy pair I've ever had on my head, I wear them for hours on end and sometimes forget they are on when I get up.

I went to a BOSE store and tried on their $300 quiet comfort 3 headphones and the AKG's made me laugh out loud at how terribly the BOSE compared.

Ebay has a couple for $190-210 shipped.

Thanks everyone! Another question, AKG K601 are very nice but I'm afraid of buying expensive electronics online. Nonetheless, I'll consider them as a candidate against the HD595. I have tried the HD595, and I absolutely love how well they sound, so for those who have tried both the AKG K601 and the HD595, which one is more suitable for a music lover with occasional gaming. Also, comfortability is an issue too.

Thanks everyone!

go with a pair of Senn HD580's. They're better than the 595's and are still quite good for gaming. they actually use the same drivers as the hd600's so just grab some hd600 grills and a hd650 cable and you've got a sweet pair of cans for cheap! You'll want to amp them though.

That's probably gonna cost more than the HD650, forget it.
