Hey guys, hows it going?
Havent stopped by here for a long while.

Still running my Grado SR225's and I picked up a Konnekt 24d for dirt cheap off a friend.
I love my 225s for music and movies, but after prolonged use while wearing my glasses my ears can get a bit sore from the headphones pressing in on them.
So I was thinking of looking for a decent pair of over the ear headphones that will be more comfortable for prolonged use.
I am undecided between closed or open back headphones so I was hoping to get some input from you guys.

Price range, around 150-200 dollars.

Thanks,
Schubs

I had that comfort issue too with my Alessandro MS-1s.

Closed vs open depends on your environment. Is there a lot of background noise (live near traffic, loud PC/roomates/children, nagging wife, etc.)? Do you want to listen to the background noise or tune it out? etc.

I'm assuming (based on you using SR225s) that you're okay with open headphones, so it mostly comes down to the sound signature of each one and what you're looking for.

Some contenders in that price segment that come to mind are Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80ohm, Ultrasone HFI 780, Sennhesier HD558 (598 for a little more than $200), AKG K271/272, and a bunch of others. I'd suggest doing some research on each and figuring out what about the sound of the Grados you like and don't like and going from there.

I am thinking closed back, maybe something with a bit more bass then what my grado has for watching movies and games and for those nights my roomates are being noisy.

The biggest thing I am looking for is comfort, I want something I can wear for hours without having them become uncomfortable.

Thanks for the help Fortunex!

Since owning a pair of SR325i's, I would say the DT 770's are a great compliment to the Grado's. They're definitely awesome for dubstep, movies, games, anything that just needs that 'oomph'. They are somewhat lacking compared to the Grado's in the rock/hardcore/metal department, but that's to be expected from every set of headphones that aren't Grado's wink.gif. Oh, and they're ridiculously comfy.

I agree! I'd rather listen to music/movie through the Realiser/HE-500's than my $7K speaker setup! It's truly something that needs to be heard to be believed.

So I got my Pro 550s last week and damn... I didn't realize you could be sexually attracted to a pair of headphones. wheee.gif

It's like taking the best of both worlds from my old XB500s and my RX900s... except it does them better than both. Dat BASS! coolsmiley.png

TL;DR: In!

Add these Denon AH-D7100 Music Maniac's to my collection. I'm really enjoying them. They remind me of my D5000's before gave them the MarkL mod. No tube amp for these yet!
