If you guys were to recommend a nice set of open headphones (I listen to primarily treble-filled techno without any or just a bit of bass along with classical music), which ones would you choose? I really love my etymotic's clarity in higher frequency's but they are limited by their size.

Maaaaaaaybe I can get up around $350 Canadian, though I would like to have it priced around $200. I have no preference in terms of comfort; as long as it goes all the way around my ears (which are normal-sized) I would love them. For a size comparison, my steelseries 5HV2 fits perfectly on my head and goes right around my ears. Keep in mind I would prefer them to sound very open.

Darn, the Q701s are exactly what i would have recommended but they are expensive in canada....

270 USD, i thought Canadian money was worth more than USD now...

the HD598s would be alright for what your looking for

beyrodynamics are good for bass, but you're looking for treble, so check out some grados if you can, but they're mostly on ear as opposed to over ear, pretty uncomfortable too...

Hmmmm... those HD598's look good (both in performance and aesthetic!) but they are yet a little bit out of my budget. Is there anything else worth looking at?

Would the HD 558's be a cheaper version of the HD 598's?
post #11308 of 37770
I like my HD 215 pro.

They look ugly as hell.

The wire and the earcups are detachable. They sound the same than the hd 598 (tested them for a good hour) on my phone. Bass can get really loud when proprely amped.

90$

I don't like a lot of bass in my music (in fact, i usually equalize it a little lower just because I like my highs to stand out more), so would that line of headphones be a little more bass or treble-heavy?

What's your audio source? your ipod/phone?

If so, you wont notice the differences between a 50$ set and a 300$ set. Think of your ipod as a geforce 8400gs and of your headphones as a cpu. Even if you have a 2600k @ 5ghz you will still have poor in game performance.

I personally enjoy the sennies hd 215 pro because of the detachable wire and removable earcups, which are easily replacable in case they break (my cats alway end up eating my wires).

If you use a strong audio source, then it's another story.
