post #9021 of 38146
My headphones just broke i had the SoundBlaster WoW Wireless ones. I was just about to use them, then the arm that holds the left speaker snapped. What a waste of $250 :/

Any suggestions for new ones? I'll be using them for some gaming, music listening and movie watching. Most preferably some that covers my whole ears, and really packs a bunch of bass.
I'd prefer wireless ones, but if wired is the only way to go, then suggest some

EDIT: And i thought of lowering the pricetag to around $200.

ok i just got a $300 apple gift card. even though i have sennheiser cx6, i want some over the hear headphones. i'm really thinking about getting the vmoda LP crossfade, since i do love bass. my problem is vomodo doesnt even release the most important specs. i'm looking for the lowest THD (total harmonic distortion) over 100 db at least, 110-120 is ideal. damn good build quality. biggest frequency response range possible.

my two main choices are


http://store.apple.com/us/product/H1...1NjY&s=priceHL

http://store.apple.com/us/product/TX...zNzA&s=priceHL



i have owned:

http://store.apple.com/us/product/TX...2ODg&s=priceHL
got this for FREE, i would NEVER buy bose. they were decent, not worth the price. comfort and noise cancelation was awesome though

http://store.apple.com/us/product/TV...5ODE&s=priceHL

http://store.apple.com/us/product/H2...2OTM&s=priceHL

etymotic ER6 (second best headphones ive ever heard)

my sennheiser CX6 (best pair of headphones ive ever heard)

ive heard beats by dr drey. i am not impressed.

basically how would these two headphones stack up against each other, and how would they strack up against the headphones ive previously owned, and how would they stack up against the famed hd555's

and how well does amplication work with them, also, can anyone find me the SPL and THD specs on the crossfade? i am getting headphones from apple only, i want the best headphones for around $300 or less can buy. aethsetis, comfort mattter, cool things like noise cancellation and portability are a plus. sound quality is number one, price is not a question, i can even go over $400 if i really need to. WHICH are the best headphones in the apple store, is it worth getting the crossfades? i love electroic music, metal (melodic death metal in particular), hard rock, chill music like drums and bass, good hip hop... but yeah.

bass is a HUGE dynamic of my music. i want DETAILED, CLEAR bass, where i can hear songs like chiron - all that remains and hear the double bass pedals with all the detail, and i want it to HIT and thump on my head while doing so. i also want detailed highs and mids as well, but i want bass to be an impact, comfort is pretty important.

Can I join with my iGrado? Considering they have the same drivers as the SR60s, and I'm modding them...

Oh, I also have Turtle Beach X11s

relax, the dude that updates the list probably wants to spend his time doing something besides watching this thread . He'll get it eventually.

My HD202 are still up there, so just about anything is fair .

As for the apple gift card, the ones that caught my eye were hf2/hf3, maybe srh840. I don't know anything about the B&W's though.

A good option would be to buy some dr.dre's beats and resell them NIB for 98% of the price and then buy something you really want . It looks like they're selling everything for MSRP .

ehh i ended up haggling them down with the crossfade LP's for $180, which still gives me somoe to spend. they way i figure it is, if i want insanely low THD and fidelity, i'll put on my sennheiser cx6. if i want raw thumping power of bass that my head feels as much as hears for my electronic music and heavy metal with bass, i'll switch to the crossfade LP. i like the versitility i get there, because in fidelity, i'm almost positive that my cx 6 will beat anything the apple store sells for $300 or less. i might try to modify my crossfade LP's down the road to enable them to fold like the B&W P5's and many other dj headphones (i know the p5's are MOBILE headphones, but i listed it there and it should be familiar)

build quality on the crossfade is astounding, the cord is one of the best ive ever seen on headphones. it is rugged, yet light, aesthetics are awesome. my only real gripe with these headphones is the lack of folding the cups in to wear all day (basically turn the cups 180 degrees to wear like a necklace) which might be modifiable. this will also actually increase durability by takign away a stress point.

if the sound was a tiny bit more open and had a tiny bit more fidelity, these might literally be the best headphones ive ever heard, but they roflstomp on the dr beats, i liked them better than the klipsch on ear and actually the B&W P5's as well, however fidelity on my etymotic er6 and sennheiser cx6 do beat it, but for electronic music and many metal songs, there are no better headphones ive used so far than these, i'm thinking video games will be excellent as well.

do these have the ability to be amplified? and if so, how much, and how much better willt hey sound? is modifying the ear cups to turn 180 degrees and slightly snap in place on each end of the turn viable somehow?
