Because people who've tried out other high end cans have said the competition has better / similar offerings for much less e.g. Hifiman HE-5 for $600 vs the HD800 @ $1400.
A German guy on a German audio forum briefly sampled the upcoming Beyerdynamic T1 vs. the HD800 and preferred the T1 and the T1 is going to sell for much less than the HD800 (~$1000 I think).

It's not that Sennheiser make bad stuff nor overprice their stuff, *cough* Bose *cough*, it's more the competition offers better value products.

The HD800 is far from crap though. Far from it.

Competition? You mean the Grado PS1000 which cost ~$300 more at retail?

Hello all,

What would be the best headphones for me to use based on what I will be using them for? I'll mostly be playing games, watching anime,and listening to music. I'm looking to spend at most $150 but I would like to keep the price at around $100 or lower if possible. The only high end earphones I have are some shure in ear headphones that are nice, but I'm sure they leave some things to be desired like a huge sound stage.

I'm pretty new to headphones and have been gathering information from here and there. I just ordered an HP Envy 15 which had a refresh recently. I at first was going to get something like the Astro A40's but I found out that in reality they are not as good as people claim, and that you shouldn't really be looking at USB or Gimmick 5.1 - 7.1 headphones anyways.

The first Headphones I was looking at were the Senheisser HD555. But after looking around I think I might order the Audio Technica ATH-AD700. At first I wasn't so keen on the purple color, but they've kind of grown on me. Purple is the color of Royalty Was there an update to these that were superior?

Anyone know how the Envy 15 sound quality is? Supposedly they all come with the beats hardware inside that is supposed to help with audio quality.

I really like the HD800's but considering the difference in price between my current setup and the HD800 setup I looked at/auditioned I didn't feel the difference in sound was justified of the price increase. Don't get me wrong, I could live with them quite comfortably had I the cash burning a hole in my pocket...


@Trojita, Personally I'm not a fan of the ATH headphones. I haven't listened to the AD (open) series, but I understand they have the same basic sound signature of the A series and other lower end offerings and I'm just not a fan. I'd take HD555/HD595 any day over them. I'm in no way saying that AD700's aren't good cans. I think they are likely quite good for the price, just not my cup of tea.

With what headphones are you comparing them that you feel the difference in sound isn't justified?
