New Headphones, $300 max - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Lol but he said we wanted to pay $300 bucks.

Anyway, go get some Sennheiser HD555s and be done with it. There's no need to spend any more.

Those are terrible for the types of music he listens to. They'd arguably be a downgrade from his AD-700s as well. Beyerdynamic DT880s are around your price range and have good quality bass to them if that's hugely important to you.

Im going to give the nod to the Denon ah-d2000. Great headphones for your preferences that dont need to be amped. Honestly once you purchase them you wont use your ad700s.

I'd still use them for gaming.

I'm just not sure, there are too many at this price range. Can't decide if I want Sennheiser HD650's, Beyer DT880 or 990s or Denon D-2000s. Those are the only ones I'm thinking of choosing between.

*Searches head-fi for DT880 vs 990 vs D2000.*

I can recommend Sennheiser HD 650. I tried most of the Denon's and the sound was a bit too light for my taste. I don't have experience with the Grado's, sorry.

I might as well get the D7000s, they can be had for $580 and don't need any other amp besides my sound card, whereas I might need to buy a better amp for sub $300 cans...

Well, you can use the HD 650 without a headamp, but it gives a whole new dimension to the sound adding one.

Or, you could buy a soundcard with an integrated headamp such as the Asus Xonar Essence STX.
