Looking for Quality headphones - Page 2

post #11 of 13

I have 2 set of headphones that I really like. I have the Technic(Panasonic) dh1200s which are simply amazing and great for in the studio and djing. They are super durable will never break, and sound crisp,clean and have excellent bass. You will not have to worry about distortion at all even all the way up. Deff one of the best bang for the buck headphones. Only problem is they can be a bit uncomfortable and are heavy and bulky.


The other set I recommend is the Grado SR225Is for $200.00. They are a bit on the pricey side, but they are hand made in NYC(Brooklyn) and are the best headphones money can buy. They also have the SR125is for about 50 bucks cheaper, but I think these are worth the extra 50 bucks. I have them and use them for gaming and listing to music. I mostly listen to Trance, progressive house with lots of vocals so clarity and frequency response is key.

They have a terrific track record of being quality, reliable phones for both music and gaming (in fact, they are pretty amazing for gaming). I own a pair myself, and are probably my favorite "all-around" type of headphones. There are different versions of all these cans, with different impedances, so make sure you have the equipment to drive some of the higher-impedance phones.

Here are links to each (remember, each has different versions):
dt770

dt880

dt990

hope that helps!
BEYERDYNAMIC DT-990PRO (Cost just the right amount 200$ ) i got access to these bad boys, non pro cost 100$ more . Also found AUDIO-TECHNICA ATH-PRO700 would be 30$ cheaper then DT-990PRO

Just noticed that the 770 Pro are closed and others open ones could you give some personal experiences with 770pro. I heard a lot about grados quality but also about how uncomfortable they are in prolonged seasons and i spend 4-12hours a day with my headphones.

Some ideas for your budget...

Sennheiser HD555, HD595, HD558, and HD598. They sound fine straight out of my Sony VAIO EB laptop, which is I guess a mid-range machine. They all use the same driver, only housing is different. HD595 may sound tiny bit better than HD555, at a 2x the price. HD558 and HD598 are recently released improved versions of HD555 and HD558.

Also many good Grado headphones can fit your budget. For example, SR125i or SR225i (around $200). I have read in reviews that SR225i is pretty sweet (not much worse than SR325i, but a lot better SR125i). They're very detail oriented and clear, so if you have a crappy sound card with some noise in it, you're going to hear that well.
