Favorite Headphones?

Post by Immerse » Sat Feb 18, 2012 6:05 am

Title says it all, among all that you have tried, owned, or rocked at all whats your favorite set? I'm asking because im in the market for some new phones and im stuck between ath-m50's, hd-25's, or hd280's. i find myself breaking almost every pair of phones i get within weeks. Almost always on the connector, which has me leaning strongly toward the 25's due to the replaceable parts. However I hear there i shotty build quality, which puts me off if im paying 200 bills. so tell me dsf, whats your favorite pair of earwear? :4:

I still have yet to find my headset soul mate
Some high quality buds though, I had these Altec Lansing bass boosting ones that were just killer, but when they fell apart on me I stuck with the new gen apple ones, can't go wrong with them, I think they're quality!
I found a way to get piece of mind for years and left the hell alone, turn a deaf ear to the cellular phone

sen's 280 are amazing but they do lack bass if you listening to an ipod or something..... they are crystal clear and can be had cheap online tho

M50's have more low end rumble which is better for dubstep, HD-25 has more punch which is better for trance and house etc. And the HD-25 (not the sp version which is crap) is probably the toughest phone out there.

You might want to look at audio technica Pro700mk2. Massive rumble, like two subs on your head

Dark dubstep, fair amount of unsigned/amateur tracks from the forums too.

i've been rolling with Sennheiser HD380's for the past 2-3 years now.. with these it sort of comes down to, great sound, look like idiot.

i think they look ridiculous, but soundwise they are spot on.. havn't tried them in the mix with a system, but from experience day to day usage they are brilliant, and when i mix at home they do the job, noise cancellation, i don't know, i'm not really satisfied, but i havn't tried a whole lot of pairs (i don't mean wear for 10 minutes, a trial is a hefty period..) but they are only noise cancelling when music is playing, and although that is somewhat the idea, you can see faults in that, but yeah, i dunno what like the industry standard is.
seem to be pretty solid, although my 1/8" jack seems to play up with some devices, but it might just be the inputs of the devices, last time i checked it's never been dodge with my laptop, and it's always run fine in a 1/4" jack adaptor.. i can't remember what they cost me, but definitely no regret, great comfy headphones with plenty of volume, good frequency range, i believe they're flat EQ but, i'd have to check the box.. but i believe they're flat.

hd 25s are my choice.

have had them for over 4 years with no problems.

my lady has the tma 1s and i think they're intensely overrated and overpriced. mediocre sound quality and pretty uncomfortable.

That is very reassuring :D , i think its between the m50's and the hd25's now simply because 280s lack bass and one of the reasons im getting phones is because i use 4 inch monitors. When trying to characterize subs its nearly impossible. is there any difference between the hd-25, hd-25 II's, and the adidas version?

Nah, the adidas is the exact same as the HD25 except with adidas branding.

I have Beyer DT770 Pro's at the moment and trust me if you like bass theyre the babys to have , like having your own portable subs :4:

I need closed but ive been told the 880's and 990's are even better.

I had DT250's before and they were good but not in the same league.

HD-25 have lasted me 10 years. It's a bit like trigger with his broom though.

the flyness of the adidas hd's combined with your rave reviews are definitely convincing me to go for the sennys

Sennheiser HD 202 II

For the price ($30), I don't know if there exists a better pair of headphones. The bass is punchy as all hell.
