looking at gettin some, got 150 limit. anyone got some? any other recomends?
After the recent headphone discussion (check for the thread) I bought Beyer DT770 PRO, and I'm pretty happy. Just over £130 I paid at studiospares.
Being the 250 ohm version they do need some driving, which I didn't realise until I got them home and they sounded really quiet. Luckily I have a headphone amp so it's all good.
I did read good things about the Dt 250 as well and they were both a similar price. I think Druu said he uses them so pm him perhaps.
Audio Technica M40fs something or other was really smooth and comfortable to wear. I got them as a gift years back, but i think it falls right down your budget. But they have this weird hinge above the can which is utterly useless and prone for breaking. Mine broke after a year of use from falling on the floor from my desk. The hinge broke and i ended up glueing them together every few months.
But I'd suggest to save your money and go just a step higher, maybe above 200 money, especially if you dont have proper monitors.
i do have monitors but i am pissing off my neighbours and landlord regularily. also got a baby on the way so they are a nessesary evil unfortunately.
Just out of curiosity, what phones would you have in mind with this suggestion?
Yup I have a set of dt250s, great as a production companion and very comfortable. Very good value for money too. A lot of the audiophile sites highly recommended them. I've made a few tracks with them, a tad bass heavy but I've found the sweet spot between them and my monitors. I haven't tried many others but will highly recommend them.
beyer dt880 are well pimp, and £180. over that price range, grado PS1000 or some cheap ass shit like that
i have a pair of these, i have literally only used them a handful of times so i cant really comment on the quality. i bought them cos i was going away for a year and thought they could be a monitor substitute. it just doesnt feel right to me making a track on headphones. would you be interested in buying them at a discount?
Namely the Beyerdynamic DT-880.
I've gotten to try them and boy they are silk smooth to wear and the sound leaves nothing to guess about. They can be a bit bass-heavy for some I hear but personally they're just right.
though i said 'over 200' because i'm an euro man.
whats ya price mate? might be interested if the price is is worth it.
80 inc delivery?
pm me your details mate. i will get in touch. that is a bargain. nice one.
