My good set has gone awol. Looking for high quality and reaonable sound block.
I have been using a pair of these at work for about a year or so and I like them- Sennheiser HD380 PRO . I use a pair of these at home and they work well too- Shure SRH440 .
I love my Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro headphones. Since you're looking for more sound block, I'd highly recommend giving the DT 770 Pro phones a chance. Very comfortable to wear for longer sessions. They go for about $180. The 770s come in three specs: 32, 80 and 250 ohms. If you're going to drive them from a powered headphone port (like on an audio interface), get the 250. If you'll also want to use it on a smartphone or tablet, get the 80.
I also have a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro cans. Very good audio quality; just not as comfortable as the Beyer's.
Thanks for your suggestions.
I went to GC and narrowed it down to the Beyerdynamic DT 770 and the yamaha hph mt7.
The display had these two headphones playing different music so I couldnt A/B them. Asked the salesperson for help but he couldnt be bothered.
I just ordered the Beyerdynamic DT 770 80 ohm from Amazon.
Cool! Let us know how the sound isolation is. TIA.
Phil jones headphones are very good...
I have a pair of HiFiMan HE-400, but I mainly use them for listening to vinyl. Might sell them for something else, so I'll be subbing to this thread.
REAL Happy with my Audio‑Technica ATH‑M50 cans. Way happier than I was with my Sony MDR 7506's. For the price, they sound great, have excellent bass response, and are very comfy.
My BD DT 770s arrived today as promised.
First impression: What i expected. Sounds great but not as good as the Sonys I lost (MD Z7). I A/B d on my Smart Phone against my old Sony MDR 7506 and actually thought the Sony was clearer. But cell phones are not a good test. Reasonable sound isolation, but not a big improment over the Sony. Will AB on keys on Tuesday.
I dont have any soundstage jobs on the horizon, which will be the real test.
Recommendation: Try to A/B your top choices before you buy. If the sales lackey doesnt cooperate, get the manager.
Don't have a ton of experience with high quality/audiophile headphones and monitors, but I own the AKG 553MKII's and they're wonderful. Very flat, no boosts anywhere in the sound, relatively lightweight and comfy.
My main gripe with them is that the head band is a little weak. It doesn't squeeze the ear pads onto your head very tightly, leaving some air and diminishing sound volume/quality. I sometimes push the ear pads on harder, and for monitoring or reviewing, it works fine. But for casual listening, there are better options.
The thing about the Sony MDR7506 is:
* They sound decent
* Other than the difficult to replace cord, they are VERY durable
* Used in many studios for the players on a session
My Sony MDR 7506 are about 15 years old and going strong. And $70 cheaper than my DBs.
