Ugh, I knew this would happen if I got into headphones. Just got a new setup a couple months ago and I'm already looking at what I'm getting next redface.gif

I think I wanna go for the HiFiMan HE400. Anyone know how the HE400's soundstage and instrument separation compares to the DT880?

They sound relatively the same.

I own both the DT990 and DJ1.

Love those Bassy dt990

Hi guyss, first time I'm posting in this section. I'm a musician and sound engineering student. Right now I'm using AKG 240MKII and I love them. Very flat response and can hear every detail perfectly. I'm thinking to upgrade.., what would you suggest me ? Get some studio monitors or get better headphones ? and which ones? My budget is around 200-300$ ( guess that's not enough for some decent monitors xD). Thanks:).

Is there something you don't like about the 240 mkii?

I'm not looking to spend a whole lot, maybe $150 tops if that. I'm currently looking at the Sony XB700 but I'm not sure how good the isolation is on them.
Any feedback would be wonderful smile.gif Also I'd like something that isn't an exotic brand or something since I'd like to find them locally. Leaving Saturday tongue.gif
EDIT: Upped the budget a bit. If I'm getting another set of cans, they may as well be decent smile.gif With the new budget, I'm also looking at the Ultrasone Pro 550..

I'd say the HD-25-1 ii if you can, or the M50s if you can't

Hey guys, I think I am in the market for yet another pair of headphones. Max budget of under £60, need headphones for travelling. So comfort is essential, will be used along side an iPhone. Also needs to be closed and not leak very much. I listen to acoustic music and a bit of dubstep on occasion.

Thanks.

Shures make good sounding, if not overly bright IEM's. Etymotic is also a good company to check out for IEM's as well.

I really enjoy my Shure SE 420K's. With a good seal, they have decent bass extension too.

Should have mentioned that I cannot use IEMs. I have abnormally small ear canals and they just do not work for me.
