I got a pair of headphones I've actually been wanting otherwise for 20% off, I wouldn't write the whole thing off completely

E: Here they are, for the curious

E2: shit, looks like we cleared them out, my bad dudes/ dudettes seeing this in the future!

E3: or theyre cheaper now for some reason... someone grab them for $112 with prime quick!

E4: holy jesus, they keep changing price but right now its at $126, and you save 20% off that if you sign up for prime right now. When i bought them last night i got them for $150 total, and that was a pretty sweet deal. These headphones could definitely be one of the few highlights from this sale, i've only been hearing amazing things!

That's because they are some of the best affordable Closed-Back headphones.

They are the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 ohm. I'm using a FiiO E10K DAC/AMP for better sound/volume control.

u/adamdevigili · 17 pointsr/battlestations

I can highly recommend a set of Beyerdynamic DT-770s. I've had mine for 3 years and I use them every day at work. You can probably find them cheaper than Amazon if you look around. You will be able to grab them used for cheap too if you don't mind that.

u/_OVERHATE_ · 12 pointsr/headphones

In order of price:

  • Creative Aurvana Live! (NOT THE LIVE 2).

  • Audio Technica ATH-WS1100

  • Phillips Fidelio X2 The Fidelios L1 are also good on bass.

  • Beyerdynamic DT770

  • V-MODA M100

  • Massdrop x Fostex TH-X00 (Mahogany have the best bass, Purplehearts have the most bass, Ebony have the most controlled bass)

  • Fostex TH900 Simply, the best bass headphone money can afford. Its craaaaaazy.

    There are others that people like to recommend the old Denons, specially the D2000 that can be found cheaper in Ebay, but its a pain in the butt to find, same with the MDR-XB1000.

    Some people will also mention some JVC ones, but i havent had the chance to try them. Btw some people will recommend the HE400i and please no stay away from them. Stay away from Planars in general if you want Basshead levels of Bass, the LCD-2 Pre-Fazor being the only exception (i tried it like a year ago so i dont remember a lot but i liked it).

u/BuckleBean · 9 pointsr/oculus

I'm happy they're included. I have learned I value comfort & convenience much higher than expected. That's not what I anticipated. I got these a long time ago for audio engineering and LOVE them:

But after using them with the DK2 in the beginning, I gradually migrated over to just using my speakers in most cases. I just found it more comfortable & convenient. Sound is extremely important to me, so this isn't coming from someone who doesn't care. I'm also glad they're optional for those who have different priorities.

u/artcon · 7 pointsr/annakendrick

Yep, and some Beyer DT770s for when she's in her dorm room, which are used basically every time you see people recording music. I was glad they actually gave her proper headphones. Bummed they've given her Beats now. Who goes from that to Beats?

u/Quinnelton · 7 pointsr/AskGames

You're going to be doing your ears and the ears of the people you're talking a disservice to by getting a "Gaming Headset." I've owned a Steelseries Siberia v2 for a couple years now and I regret it every time I use them.

Average is the greatest compliment I can give them. Average soundstage, average bass, average highs and average mic quality. And if you're going to be spending ~$90 on a head set you want something that will be more than average.

This is what I wish I went with years ago and what I still wish I could justify buying while my Siberia is functioning:

  • $95 Audio Technica ATH-AD700 - "Good for Gaming, Movies (very open soundstage). Good bass response but not bass presence (not thumpy). Comfortable and very very very large." -HeadFi

  • $190 Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, 80 ohms - "BASS!!! Great soundstage for a closed can. Very good movie and gaming can.+ -HeadFi

  • $10 Zalman Zm-Mic1 High Sensitivity Headphone Microphone - Clip on mic that attaches to your headphone cable. Everything I've heard about this mic have been glowing reviews, amazing sound and fantastic sensitivity.

    By going with a pair of headphones that are high quality and feature an exceptional soundstage, which basically means how far around you you can hear (good for picking up footsteps and locating bullet shots), and top of the line sound reproduction you're setting yourself up to have the best of both worlds, gaming and music.

    This is all coming from someone who wishes they had more money to spend on audiophile gear. Make sure to check out /r/audiophile as well, they have a lot of good information there as well.

u/spamyak · 7 pointsr/headphones

Get the DT-770. They're like the 990 but closed and bassier, a good fit for electronic music. They're built like tanks, they don't look great (and don't need to), they isolate well, and thus they barely leak sound.

If you're using with a laptop or phone with underpowered audio out, get the 32 Ohm for $124.

Otherwise, the 80 Ohm version is $118 and also has velour pads. It also has just a bit more bass, but on worse audio sources it will be too quiet or otherwise sound a bit off.

Don't get an amp - if you would need an amp, get the 32 Ohm version. If you're dead set on getting an amp, go for a DAC/Amp, the SMSL M3 is one of the best cheaper desktop models.

Alternatively, and this will be frowned upon here, you could go for HyperX Cloud for $80. You missed the cheaper sale Friday ($65), but from personal experience of having these exact headphones without the microphone, they sound great with everything and have enough detail that they're a significant upgrade over what you have now.

u/Strix_the_Owl · 7 pointsr/cscareerquestions

If they're company sponsored or you have the funds, check out the Sony WH1000XM2. It's an atrocious name, but the best noise-cancelling headphones in the market, not to mention it absolutely wipes the floor with the Bose QC35s for sound quality.

If you're more into the ease of pairing between multiple devices (and are allowed to use your personal iCloud credentials on a work machine) check out the Beats Studio Wireless 3 for easy pairing and switching between devices.

Other than that there really isn't anything comparable in the noise cancelling department. However, if you're prefer having closed-back headphones, definitely look at the ATH-M50x and the Beyerdynamics 770DT Pros. They're both excellent headphones with amazing sound quality, definitely the best bang for buck.

u/the_joy_of_VI · 7 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

No love for the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PROs? $179 on Amazon

u/SergeantStuck · 7 pointsr/Tipper

I've been using Beyerdynamics DT 770 Pro 80 ohm paired with a Fiio E10k DAC and the sound quality is incredible. You'd be under budget with this setup too and the E10k also has a bass boost switch if that's your thing ;)

That's more of a desktop setup, though my phone does drive the 770s pretty well. If you're looking for headphones for on the go listening, I'd recommend Sony's WH1000XM3, they're the best noise cancelling headphones I've ever owned.

u/DZCreeper · 6 pointsr/buildapc

Gaming headsets suck, period.

Get yourself a nice pair of well reviewed closed back headphones. Open back leaks more noise and tends to have a little less bass.

Then you need a mic you can attach to the side like a regular 'gaming' headset, only except now your audio is high quality.

Then if you want to improve the experience a little more, grab an external DAC and headphone amp.

u/JustBeee · 6 pointsr/LSD

Two thumbs up, over-ear headphones are so immersive and comfortable for long periods.

I use a set of DT770s and often wear them for 9-12 hours.

u/QuipA · 6 pointsr/headphones

> Preferred tonal balance - Balanced

> ATH-M50X and it blew me away.

Those are two very conflicting statements. The M50X is not has boosted bass and treble and a very narrow sound stage. Comfort is also not extremely good for long gaming sessions.

If you liked the sound of the M50X and crave for some serious low end, the HD598 might leave you disappointed. The Beyerdynamic DT770 (80Ohm) is aiming for a more extreme v-shaped sound signature than the M50X and offers better comfort and sound stage.

u/rovon2 · 5 pointsr/edmproduction

I had the same experience. Cannot stand the m50x despite how much praise they got. I think they are painful on the ears. I switched over to these and have never looked back:

You can listen with them for hours and they are extremely comfortable. Also very good frequency response overall.

u/Strottinglemon · 5 pointsr/gifs
u/PhranCyst · 5 pointsr/trap

I have Beyerdynamic DT 770 80 ohm version. They don't need an amp, closed back, super fucking comfy, and the bass goes deep. Highly recommend.

Or you can get the Custom One Pro. Bass is just as juicy, and has a detachable cable.

u/jallsopp · 4 pointsr/gaming

For that price, forget about headsets altogether. You can get a really good headphone and mic combination. Here's an example: BeyerDyanmic DT770PRO and a ModMic

I'd highly recommend checking out the guides at /r/headphones to choose a pair best suited to you and any decent mic should do the trick.

Don't waste the money on overpriced, overhyped garbage.

u/jarz252 · 4 pointsr/Monstercat

What do you plan on using the headphones for? Music production or just general listening? Also, what source do you plan on using for your headphones? (like your phone, or a DAC/Amp combo? DACs are like the sound cards in your computer that decrease/eliminate electrical interference with the other components which can cause hissing or distortion when you're listening to music/audio short summary of it here) (also don't take my word as 100% accurate because I know some stuff about this but I'm probably not that good as experts who own multiple headphones and equipment)


I have the ATH-MSR7 and I like them quite a lot, sound signature is kind of based on your preference so maybe you could go in a store and test them out first? The MSR7 is definitely neutral with just enough bass to keep things fun and enjoyable to listen to and the clarity is pretty good, however these aren't very good for noise isolation because they're semi open, so if you're planning to use them on a train or in a bus (in moderate volume places like maybe a park or a quiet starbucks you should be fine too), you probably have to turn up the volume quite a bit (which can be bad for your ears). But if you're planning on using them at home it's totally fine. You can definitely use your phone for these because the impedance is only 30-35 ohms so your phone can power this just fine. These should be fine for both listening and music production(albeit the DT 770 Pro being better for music production).
Quick edit: they also come with a 3 detachable cables (1.2m/3m audio only cable and a 1.2m audio + mic cable)


Another option to look at is the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, I'm not really sure how the sound signature is but it should be bright(or at least brighter than the other headphones). Dependent on the impedance of the DT770s you pick, you might need an amp to go along with it. It's an open back headphone so it's definitely not for bringing it out and listening to in loud environments. They're closed back. These are pretty good for music production. You probably can't use this with your phone unless it has an amp or if you have one already. (LG V20 should be able to run it if it's 80 ohms but don't take my word for it)


The Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 are fun and won't be harsh on your sources, meaning even if you run it on your phone without a proper DAC or amp or whatever, it will still sound pretty good and there probably won't be much discernible distortion but maybe/probably won't be as detailed if you were to use a DAC/amp with it (Same story for the MSR7/DT770/most headphones at this price or higher). The momentum 2.0s are great for listening to music but probably shouldn't be used for music production.


I'd very much recommend not only researching the products you wanna buy, but also testing them out in a store if possible in order to find which headphones suits you the best. Cheers!

u/LosdaVS · 4 pointsr/MillerPlanetside

Using these since 2009 and they not only sound superior compared to any "gamer-headset" but also will NOT brake. after 6 years my cans are still like new. they are comfortable for hours, have an incredible soundstage, every single part of it can be replaced if ever needed. the head-band is made of feather-steel, the mounting of the cans are steel, you really only can brake them with force on purpose.

there is one thing though, it has open cans, you hear things from outside very easily. if you prefer a more isolated sound, get these. same headphones, but closed design, the soundstage is a bit smaller and have a bit more emphasis on bass than the 990PRO, but having 80ohm you can drive them on your smartphone also.

the pricing on both of them should fit your budget.

edit: has no mic, but you're using a blueyeti anyway. also 6.3mm and 3.5mm audio-jack.

beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Studio Headphones - 80 Ohm

They are great but also very VERY comfortable to wear for hours on end.

u/Mreedr · 3 pointsr/piano

Los beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 Ohm salen casi 170, al ser menos de 1kg por courier serán 15/20 más, y contá que el que te lo compre también te está sacando un clavo (yo lo pondría sobre los 190), pero esto no es un market así que ponele el precio que se te cante y suerte con la venta...

u/Azara1th · 3 pointsr/headphones

For the $200 range closed over-ear headphones: Beyerdynamic DT770s are practically a perfect fit. They've got great quality sound with healthy and accurate bass, accurate highs and good mids. They have a V-shaped frequency response curve, so the bass and highs are emphasized a bit more than mids, but they're still very excellent. As far as comfort goes, they're excellent - light and feel like pillows on the ears. IMO you'd have to spend over $300 to get headphones that sound much better, probably more.

They don't need much amplification if you go with the 80ohm version (it helps though). They're my favorite headphone in that range and my primary set (also have some open-backed Sennheiser 518s, the DT770s are substantially better). $170 here @ B&H Photo for 250 ohm version or $229 @ Amazon for 80 ohm version. I'd go with the 80 ohm version to avoid needing to buy an amp if you don't want to go that route (which would add $50-100 or so for a basic but decent quality amp).

u/farix126 · 3 pointsr/headphones

Hello all, so I got some help last night and think I’ve narrowed my options down to either a DT 770 , a 598 CS or just keeping what I have (hyperx cloud). I was just looking to see if anyone could help me decide or make other suggestions.

This is my post from last night with all the details. A summary is I’m looking for some new headphones for 150$-200$. I mostly play video games and listen to music for background. In all honesty I’m not sure what I’m really after, other than to see what everyone here is talking about. My only “actual” reason would be that my current pair is almost 5 years old. I would also need to get a mic if I get a new pair so any suggestions for that would be appreciated.

Thank you for any advice and sorry if I said anything dumb, I am extremely new to this.

u/PowderedWigMachine · 3 pointsr/buildastudio

Pro Tools definitely isn't necessary if you're getting Logic Pro, but if it fits your budget at the end, go for it.

For Headphones, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, or Sennheiser HD280 Pro if you want to allocate more of the budget to other gear.

Assuming you're not going to doing large sessions, the Steinberg UR44 interface should meet your needs and is very budget-friendly.

The Shure SM57 is a must-have for any studio, great for electric guitar but can be used for just about anything. The SM58 should also definitely be considered.

You'll also probably want something like the Audio-Technica 2035 for recording vocals (or other instruments), and a couple of other mics that I'm sure other people will recommend.

The Yamaha HS8 is a great monitor that you'll find widely used in studios all over the world, and won't break the bank. This package also includes stands and cables.

edit I know it wasn't asked for, but price out what it costs to have someone come and tune a piano in your area. If it's reasonable, take a look on Craigslist, you can often find used upright pianos in great shape for free, being given away by people who are moving and don't play enough to justify the effort of moving it.

EDIT BACKUP DRIVES! Unless the people there have their own way of backing up the things they record, or even if they do, get a couple of hard drives and back things up often, just in case any tragedies should happen.


That's all I got off the top of my head, I'll come back and edit this post later if anything else comes to mind, hopefully this is a good starting out point for you.

I got my local guitar center to price match this deal on Beyerdynamic DT 770s.

What's crazy is that's not even close to the best deal I got this weekend. Are you just looking for hardware? Not interested in plugins, soft synths or classes?

u/Dafman · 3 pointsr/headphones

I can only speak for the most recent purchase I've made, which is the Beyerdynamic DT770. They are very comfortable (I've worn them for 5 or 6 hours at a time and they don't pinch or feel tight in the least) and they are quite light (272g) The only downside for me is that the cable is 9ft long, which is far too much for my needs but I am hoping to get them recabled at some point.

I got them from Amazon and they are £129.99 at the moment.

u/mandos20 · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Closed back alternative:

The DT770s were on sale on Prime Day and I picked up a pair to replace a set my wife hung on a halogen desk lamp.

They're closed so work better in an office environment, but the velour cups are massive and soft. They're pretty much the only over ear set I can wear for hours on end without fatigue.

u/lurking_quietly · 3 pointsr/headphones

Posted yesterday with minimal response.


Budget: US$200 is a hard limit for everything, including any recommended DACs or amps.

Sources: Laptop computers, mobile device, and headphone-out jack to my (not-so-high-quality) home audio system.

Requirements for Isolation: Though I'll primarily use headphones indoors, I may be listening to my iPod in public. I'd therefore want good isolation.

Preferred Type of Headphones: Closed over-ear > closed on-ear > alternatives. I am not interested in IEMs.

Preferred tonal balance: Unsure; probably neutral? See "Preferred Music" below if that helps.

Past headphones: Mostly cheap, sub-US$40 on-ear eadphones or earbuds/IEMs. Over 10-15 years ago, I think I had the predecessor to the Sony MDR-V6, which I liked, though I had no decent frame-of-reference to which to compare them at the time.

Preferred Music: I actually listen more to podcasts than music; ideally, I'd like something that is a good complement to something like Radiolab, which has detailed, interesting sound engineering. In terms of music, I listen to rock (especially alternative), electronic, and mashups. I'd prefer healthy bass, but nothing so bass-heavy it creates a lopsided profile. I also expect to use these to listen to TV and movies as well as on my computer, but I don't do any gaming.

Miscellaneous: I'd prefer something that does not require an amp or DAC, especially since I may be using this in public with mobile devices. I'd also prefer something sturdy enough to last many years, including travel. Being able to replace the earpads would be a definite bonus. What the headphones look like is secondary to me, provided they're neither comically large, nor scream, "Expensive! Steal me!"

What I'm Currently Considering:

  1. Sony MDR-V6: US$80 at Amazon.

  2. Sony MDR-7506: US$85 at Amazon.

There is a lot of room for saving, this build will be a lot more than any game needs. If you wanted to save money you could easily get a cheaper video card. An SSD is a luxury but money can be saved there as well. I didn't include an OS/heat sink either. If you don't want to overclock an i5-2400 is good, also there are cheaper mobos too. Pretty much every slot can be customized to what you would like, and most can save you money. I just picked a decent size Asus monitor, there are definitely a lot of options though. I use a Razer DeathAdder mouse, I think it is great. For keyboard I would read a mechanical keyboard buying guide to find what is best for you. A high end mechanical keyboard will cost probably $100, though they aren't for everyone (I don't use one). For headset I would strongly recommend going headphones + mic (clip on or standalone). I personally use Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro-80 and a standalone usb mic like this. Like almost anything there a lot of options, I really like that mic and it can be found for $15 if not lower on some sites. There are some good subreddits for headphone suggestions, there are a lot of good options in the $100 range, I know Audio-technica have some decent headphones around there (as do others). I guess ill end by if you really want to get the most out of your system I would go do some decent reading and see what is best for you, make a post later on with what you want to build with and get feed back then.

u/Bonzai_Tree · 3 pointsr/madlads

No problem at all.

I would say your best bet is probably a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770. V-shaped signature (boosted treble and bass), closed back, powered easily.

Important note! Do not buy the 250ohm model, only the 80ohm or 32ohm--you really want a headphone amp for 250ohms. If you plan on getting an amp or sound card, I'd suggest the 80ohm ones. They will sound fine un-amped but an amp will open them up. They also come with the velour pads which are WAY more comfortable. The 32 ohm version comes with pleather pads.

Another option is the Audio-Technica M50X.
They're also closed back, a little more stylish, less comfortable, but they are folding and have a removable cable. Bass isn't as good as the DT770 but they have better highs.

I would still say for you go with DT770 Pro 80 Ohm version. I think that'd be the best match for you. If you have more to spend, get a little headphone amp or a Xonar DG for your computer to power your headphones at home.

u/afrobat · 3 pointsr/audiophile

With movies, I would say the most important thing is having a big and accurate soundstage. So pretty much if an airplane flies over you in a movie it doesn't sound like an airplane was flying in your head or flying in the wrong direction or something. Not sure what you mean by "simulated" surround sound, though. Pretty much all headphones have simulated surround sound as the two drivers are right next to your ears and stuff. So in that sense, I would say it's quite important.

The ones I've recommended, the portables ones especially, have mediocre or average soundstage size or you could find a better one for the price. Aside from the Sony ones (I have not tried them extensively so that's just from initial impressions), the soundstage on the other headphones are quite accurate. They will definitely still work very well with movies.

Closed Headphones

I would probably add the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (80 ohm) to the list though. Technically, the DT770 is definitely not the best bang for the buck you'll find for headphones. The bass is powerful, but is a little loose, has less clarity than the ultrasones and m50, and less soundstage than the audio technica ad700. BUT, for headphones under $200, I would say that it is the most fun and engaging headphones I've tried for movies (and one of my favorite sub $200s for music as well but many would argue otherwise). They are definitely much more comfortable than any of the headphones I've recommended above that are under $300. Overall, it is technically an average headphone, but very fun.

Open Headphones

It's a lot easier to find good soundstage on open headphones, but they tend to lack in bass. I have not heard the k701 and the dt880 below, but from reviews, this is what I gathered from it.

Audio-Technica AD700 For sub-$100 the soundstage is huge and quite accurate. Audio-Technica's winged headband system is actually the most comfortable I've ever tried, but many people have trouble with the fit as it sits quite loose on the head. If it fits though it feels weightless on your head. One big problem though. There is a SEVERE lack of bass. My musical tastes tend to swing me slightly towards the bass shy headphones, but these are really lacking. You can EQ the bass up, but if you want neutral bass it's like a good +12dB on the lower end. Here's the frequency response graph:[]=2661

AKG K701 I have never tried these, but this should give you some idea. The AD700 is regarded as the poor man's K701. From what I read, the sound signature is pretty similar except it has a bigger soundstage, some say it sounds artificially big. Here's the frequency response graph for these headphones. There does not seem to be as severe of a bass drop off.[]=703

Beyerdynamic DT880 Again, I have not tried these, but I was actually very much considering these headphones at one point. They are quite balanced and semi-open so I don't think sound leaks quite as much out of these than the other two. Soundstage is also quite big, but can be a bit bright on the high end. These tend to be one of the most recommended headphones in the ~$300 price range as great all-rounders. The DT990 I recommended above is closed and has more bass.

All of the headphones I recommended specifically for movies are all non-portable. If you are looking for something portable, I have not heard many portable headphones that I would ever really consider to have great soundstage. But the ones above at least can definitely can get the job done.

u/knowhatimsayin · 3 pointsr/gadgets

Just bought a set of Beyerdynamic-770-PRO-80-ohms from guitar center for 220, they are the best headphones I've ever used and the most comfortable. They block out all sound and also keep all your sound in, even at max volume. Couldn't recommend them enough, I've been wearing them 6+ hours at a time with no discomfort. Also, since they are 80 ohm, they open you up to possibly getting an amp in the future. I didn't even know something like that existed until I bought these, but it's nice to know the upgrade is there.

be warned they pack a lot of bass, which some people find a problem. I however, think its amazing sounding. But I love my bass.

4th ninja edit cuz I love my cans: I have a smaller than average head, so a lot of headphones sag, or feel like they could fall of my head easily. I returned the AD900x, $200 for that reason, the 770s fit great

u/eXtraVert3d · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

If you're looking for a closed-back set with a pronounced low end, the Beyerdynamic DT 770's are amazing. Just keep in mind you'll have to buy a separate clip-on mic if you're using them for chat.

u/Fenghoang · 3 pointsr/headphones

It's not part of the Amazon Prime Day deals, but the DT 770 Pro 80 ohm is $134.95. Not abnormal, but it's pretty much the lowest that it usually goes for.

u/foamed · 3 pointsr/DevinTownsend

Three headphones which are recommended for first time buyers looking to invest in a higher quality pair of headphones are Audia-Technica's ATH-M50x, Grado's SR80e and Beyerdynamic's DT-770 Pro 80ohm.

Sennheiser's HD650 would be better for Devin's type of music, but it's also a big step up in price and they should only be used inside as you need a good DAC to drive them.

Personally I'm using several different headphones depending on if I'm in front of my computer, in the living room or outside. My two main headphones are Philips Phidelio X2 and the Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro 32ohm limited edition.

Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, AKG, ATH and Grado are usually safe brands to go for when looking for higher quality headphones.

u/verifitting · 2 pointsr/headphones

Your budget is a little limited. The SHP9500 and K712 come to mind but both are too expensive perhaps a used deal maybe..

Within budget the M40x (used or new) with HM5 brainwavz earpad upgrade for comfort is great, but the sound stage for gaming is a little closed in (it's a closed headphone after all), but has very neutral/balanced sound. An alternative could be the beyerdynamic DT-770 which might go along well with your heavy/thrash metal music and is above average for gaming. Amazon deal:

You might have to save just a little more for a real high-end headphone with wider, more directional sound stage.

u/Lapper · 2 pointsr/headphones

Righto. How about the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO (80 Ω)?

  • Budget: $230 (€171) new, but we recommend you buy used. It's usually not hard to find lightly or even never-used headphones for a big discount. It's not as grody as you might imagine.

  • Source: It comes in two varieties, 250 Ohm and 80 Ohm. They both require roughly the same amount of power, but 80 Ohm is your best bet because you didn't mention anything about a dedicated amp. How important is an amp and DAC to your listening experience? It's pretty important. The amp/DAC in your computer or phone is worth pennies on the dollar. That being said, I still recommend 80 Ohm because it will be easier for you to drive with no amp.

  • Isolation: Reports say isolation is strong, as expected from a well-made closed circumaural like Beyerdynamic.

  • Type: Circumaural, as requested. Beyerdynamic has big, fluffy velour earcups like Sennheiser, so the comfort should be quite sufficient.

  • Tonal balance: These will not be neutral. Reviews say bass is heavy, mids are thin, and highs get sibilant. That being said, (this part is important), you do not have a dedicated amp and DAC in your path. The finer points like this are not the first thing you should worry about or notice. You are basically putting regular petrol in a sports car. While this won't hurt your cans, know that you will not be using them to their full potential, and that is okay. I just don't want you to be thrown off when I say you won't have a neutral signature, because that is both expensive and something you need to overlook until your budget allows for. If you haven't had proper audiophile headpones before (and you say you haven't), your first pair will blow you away. I promise.

    That's all I can tell you, because I don't own these headphones and I haven't listened to them. I'm a Sennheiser person. I do know that you can trust Beyer and that they won't steer you wrong. I'm sure you can look around, preferably on Head-Fi, and find first-hand reviews.
u/uxgun · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Hello, CMDR! I was considering the wireless version but it was not in stock and I didn't want to wait. I'm not a big fan of cables but in this case, I don't even regret rushing my purchase because the EDTracker just works as expected. Really great stuff.

As for the headphones, these are Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro (studio) 80 Ohm. What are good headphones is a very personal, subjective thing. I like closed backs because they are isolating well from the external sounds and they provide deep, meaty sound. Comfort is also my top priority requirement because I often wear my headphones 10+ hours per day. My budget was up to £200. Previously I had couple Adio Technica, including 990 and 550. These are by far the most comfortable and best sounding headphones I've ever had. If you ever have a need/chance definitely give them a try. Here they are on Amazon:

u/InhailedYeti · 2 pointsr/headphones

How much experience do you have with headphones? Usually if you're just going for music listening it's good to have a little color to the headphones, maybe a little more bass or treble depending on your preferences. Also what kind of music do you listen to? A lot of people prefer a more flat sound, though, so it entirely depends.

The M50x can be a good starter pair. It has kind of boosted highs and pretty significantly boosted bass, not a lot of sounstage but solid detail and clarity. They're also closed back and provide a lot of isolation.

There's also the a few good AKG headphones like the K240 and K92 but they're pretty flat and AKG is known for not having a ton of bass.

I don't know how massdrop handles customs or if they ship to europe but the HE 4XX is basically a steal at ~$140 USD if you're able to put a little more money in. It's also open back, though.

You may love the HM5, though. They're not a bad headphone at all they just don't align with my preferences so I usually use them for their flat response rather than their musical capability. If something doesn't have enough bass you can also EQ it if nothing else. If you don't have a lot of headphone experience it can be hard to recommend headphones since I don't know what you like. My best advice is take advantage of the refund policy with amazon or something. Try out a pair or two and just send them back if you don't think you like them, just make sure you give it at least a few days if not a week to see if they grow on you.

Edit: I know it's not technically under 100 euro but the DT 770 is 114 on amazon which might be your best bet. Just prepare for pretty amped up high frequencies haha.

u/Vorte · 2 pointsr/FL_Studio

At Amazon for example, you can select the Ohm.

u/LordZelgadis · 2 pointsr/PS4Deals

In terms of comfort, they barely fit my ears and mine are proportionally sized to my over 6' tall body. They also make my ears sweat. They're okay but you can find other brands that are similar for a little less.

I'll save the story of my adventure in headphones and just say the ATH-AD700X are probably my personal pick for headphones for people with big ears but I've heard pretty much any of the Audiotechnica headphones are about the same comfort.

I bought the ATH-AD700 (no longer sold) for their accurate sound quality and high quality comfort. They're not exactly portable, so I don't get to wear them as much as I'd like to but they've been my favorite headphones for a decade now. I spent a stupid amount of time reading forum threads about headphone recommendations before picking the ATH-AD700 out and they did not lie about the pros and cons related to them.

My second choice but I never bought them because of price were the DT 990 headphones. I knew I'd have to buy an amp for them and the price isn't exactly cheap either.

Of course, their cheaper line, the DT 770, is probably just about as good and don't require such a powerful amp.

If you're looking for something cheaper with a mic attached, try the HyperX Cloud Stinger.

Alternatively, just google "headsets for big ears" and see what looks good to you. This list actually seems to do a decent job explaining the advantages from a gamer perspective.

u/Dunskap · 2 pointsr/headphones

Looking for closed headphones under $200ish

For 2 years I have had Sennheiser HD 598s for Open, and $60 ATH M30x for closed. But the M30x's aren't really comfy over long periods and of course better sound quality is always a plus.

Some cans I am considering

  1. beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 ohm

  2. AKG K550

I would suggest the ever-popular Beyerdynamic dt 770. These are very high bass-response headphones and do correctly everything that the beats attempted to do.

u/Unit_Nescio · 2 pointsr/headphones

Budget: $275 CAD (non-flexible) - probably buying from or local shop

Audio Source: Desktop dac/amp which is plugged into desktop computer. (If it helps: my motherboard is an ASRock AB350M Pro-4)

Requirements for Isolation: None? Headphones will be used solely at home. I do have a roommate but when I'm listening to music/playing games I tend to have my door closed.

Preferred Type: Over-ear/full-sized

Preferred Tonal Balance: I enjoy bass and mids, but I don't want something that will be too bassy as to drown out the highs.

Past Headphones: Sony MDR-RF985R. I enjoyed what seemed to be a fairly neutral sound profile. Strongly disliked interference causing static because they were RF Wireless headphones. They were good when the sound was clear though (especially since I got them for only $80 CAD).

Preferred Music: Basically everything: classical (e.g. "Concertino bianco: 1. Con intenerimento) , classic rock (Pink Floyd, Rush, etc), game soundtracks, pop(?) songs such as "Primo" by RAF Camora, "Soldaten 2.0" by Kontra K.

Improvements: I would like to improve on my audio experience in general. No more static, much better sound in general, and higher quality headphone construction. I will be buying a simple dac/amp (probably Schiit Fulla 2 or FiiO K5).

So far, I'm considering either the DT 770 (Pro 80) or the DT 990 (Pro). I was looking at the Sennheiser Urbanite XL as well but I'm not too sure they fit my wants? I'm definitely open to suggestions, especially if they're cheaper!

Also, can you plug headphones with a 3.5mm connector into the 3.5mm line-out of a dac/amp which has only a 6.3mm headphone-out (like in the Schiit Fulla 2 for example)? If not, I can source an adapter so 6.3mm is not a requirement.

u/lukeman3000 · 2 pointsr/ns2

DON'T buy "surround sound headphones". Invest in a good, quality pair of stereo headphones and buy a good soundcard that emulates a 5.1 environment with either Dolby Headphone or CMSS-3D (I prefer the latter).

I own and would highly recommend the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro, but the DT 990 Pro can be had for less. The main difference is that the DT 770 is closed whereas the DT 990 is open. With a closed headphone, others will not hear sound coming out of them as easily, which is good if you like to play late at night with others in the house. an open headphone allows for a better "soundstage", which basically means that it will sound "better" (this is highly subjective). I haven't used open headphones before so I can't pass judgment, but I love my 770s. I'm still unsure as to why there's such a price difference between the two, though.

As far as sound cards go, you want something that will do "simulated surround sound". Dolby Headphone and CMSS-3D are examples of this technology. I prefer CMSS-3D over DH, having used both. For CMSS-3D, you have to buy a Creative sound card -- I recommend the Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium because it can be had for relatively cheap these days. They don't make it anymore, which is why you have to buy from eBay (they sell a refurbished one on Amazon, too).

If you buy the Titanium X-Fi, get the Pax Drivers. They are MUCH better than the stock drivers and make setup a breeze in comparison.

If you decide to go this route and need any help, shoot me a message, I'd be glad to help.

The [Beyerdynamic DT 770, 80 Ohm Pro] ( boasts very boosted bass and treble, great for EDM. I describe the sound as mechanical, almost machine-like - again, great for electronic music with artificial synthesizers. But listening to high notes hurt like hell in the beginning until your ears get used to the piercing sound. Think nails screeching off a chalkboard.

The Fidelio X2, while open-backed, delivers amazing yet controlled bass. Unlike the DT 770, they work well for all genres of music because they have a more balanced sound signature. A pair of headphones suitable for true bassheads.

u/angryflamer100 · 2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

For headsets, I would recommend the Sennheiser PC 350's or PC 360's, depending on your preference. They are one of the few decent performers with little markup and an "affordable" street price.

If you go with headphones, the Audio Technica ATH-AD700's are great for gaming, as it has an excellent sound stage and are very clear (due in part to their minimal bass output). They are opened though, so there is very little isolation. For closed headphones, the beyerdynamic DT-770's are alright, I prefer them over my ATH-M50's, especially for gaming. If you want just a solid well-rounded pair of versatile headphones, give the HD 558's a listen. You can generally find Sennheiser products for much lower than their MSRP.

  • Audio Technica ATH-AD700X One of my favorite headsets, even better if you can get the original non X version as I consider the drivers to be even better. These are a nice set of open circumaural headphones

  • Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro Another good closed set of headphones, be aware these are higher impedance headphones so you may want to look for the lower impedance 32ohm version if you're not sure if your sound card can drive them properly

Oh definetely, the qpads are using audiophile grade headphones with a built in mic basically. However I would still suggest to buy the headphones from beyerdynamic and buy a seperate mic. Not only is it cheaper you also get the original headphones without tinkering from qpad.

These are the headphones which qpad rebrands :

If you like your music, definitely miles better over the siberia v2. If you mostly spend your time playing games I wouldn't bother since you won't use the beyerdynamics to the fullest.

> The radiator is mounted on the top of the case though, in the 240mm radiator slot of the Define R4 (as I'm not using it, the cpu is air cooled). Pic

I think that might be your problem: you have air blowing from one fan directly at another at varying speeds. This can cause loud sound as air from one fan running at one speed hits the fan blades of another fan running at another speed. Can you try mounting your GPU's radiator in another spot, at least temporarily? If it gets quieter, that's your issue. Maybe even just un-mount the fan and let it sit at an angle inside the case for testing purposes?

> Yeah, that's why I bought it, thus my disappointment. The fan is loud, the pump whine/buzz is also loud, even with the radiator fan completely disconnected (was only courageous enough to check it on idle). And it sounds like an airbus engine under load

That actually doesn't surprise me if the blower fan is kicking in to try to cool the entire card, which it wasn't designed to do. If the pump can be heard over headphones, however, that sounds like a bad pump.

> The worst thing is the cards (and not only EVGA, just like all of them 1070/1070ti/1080/1080tis) are pretty much unavailable here and I can't replace it through the shop I bought it in if it's faulty and I'm pretty sure that's the proper way of proceeding with it according to EU customer laws.

I don't know how EVGA's warranty works overseas (warranties sometimes vary from country to country, depending on the manufacturer), but in the US EVGA will do what's called an advance replacement:

  1. You give them your credit card and they'll authorize the cost of the replacement GPU temporarily.
  2. They'll ship you a replacement card in advance so you can keep using the original until you get the replacement.
  3. You'll send the old one back and they'll release the hold on those funds, assuming you do so in a timely fashion.

    If this is an option for you I'd recommend doing it, but take photos and/or video of whatever you receive from them (maybe even a video of you opening the box and examining it) as well as whatever you send to them as I've seen complaints that different manufacturers (including but not limited to EVGA) have blamed customers for damage either caused in transit or while in the possession of the manufacturer. I cannot confirm or deny the legitimacy of these complaints, so better safe than sorry.

    > Not over here in EU (Service Hours: Monday - Friday 09:00 - 18:00 CET). Plus I would like to spare myself the costs of an international call (I'm located in PL and the phone has GB area code), so I'm just dropping them an email for now. Oh well.

    Fair enough. Is Skype/Google Hangouts/Voice an option for you? That might allow a cheaper/free call.

    > I usually play single player games using speakers, because they are really nice speakers and my head hurts after a few hours of using headphones.

    Totally unrelated, but I'd recommend considering some better headphones. Check out the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. They're available on Amazon UK for £122.00 and sometimes go on sale in the US; I can't speak for the UK. The 80 ohm version won't require an external amp, and the sound detail is amazing. In addition, the earcups go all the way around your ears so the pressure is spread more evenly across your skull rather than the cartilage of your ears. They're built like tanks and do a lot to isolate noise, both external sounds as well as preventing others hearing what's playing through the headphones. Note, however, that the sound from these headphones is extremely bright. (Louder, more detailed highs, as well as mids and lows.) I love that, but it's harsh to some folks' ears and can cause headaches. My personal opinion is that you can always adjust the sound to be less bright by using an EQ (hardware or software). Since you can never add brightness beyond what a headphone/speaker can produce I personally prefer to start with a bright set of headphones and adjust as needed. Your personal preference may vary, however.

I understand that you didn't find the m50x comfortable. It's not an uncommon opinion and I agree. So here are some popular, more comfortable, options that can still provide a good soundstage and sound signature for gaming.

Open back -


Sennheiser 598sr

BD DT990

Fidelio X2 (yes, they are less expensive to order from Spain, right now)

Closed back -

Takstar Pro82

Sennheiser 598cs

BD DT770

AT-MSR7 (buy a used-like new pair from the warehouse)

I gave you budget and next tier upgrade options. In-depth reviews for everything listed are available on youtube.

u/Cephara · 2 pointsr/Vive

Big Screen (free) and Virtual Desktop (not free), both on Steam and Oculus Home, both have a "theater experience" with Big Screen simulating "reflected light" generated from the movie screen onto the virtual theater I believe. I don't remember if either supports 4k 3D BluRay yet. Unfortunately, the fidelity of all released Headsets do not compare to IMAX. PiMax 8k might be able to bridge that gap in terms of clarity/quality, but isn't out yet (some reviews do exist). Worse yet, with 4k BluRay HDR movies finally being released, I don't think any headsets have any plans on supporting HDR sadly. Assuming you're fine losing HDR, Pimax 8k & 5k have a higher pixel count as well as a FOV of 200 degrees compared to Vive Pro's 110.

From a forum: "Pimax 8K (and 5K) uses 25601440 per eye, so technically 51201440 for both eyes, which compares to Vive Pro's 2880*1600 (for both eyes)."

Even for just watching movies with very little movement, the Pimax's will most likely require a fairly powerful PC.

One thing I see overlooked too often is sound. I record music and mix other people's songs as a hobby, so sound is very important to me while watching movies or playing games. I love my home theater sound system, but investing into a dedicated headphone amp and a bass transducer is transcendent. I don't have any transducer installed into my couch, but I use a Buttkicker Gamer 2 transducer for my PC setup. The transducer is okay with my desktop speaker, but when I use my DT 770 with my Buttkicker, it's a completely immersive experience with sound and the tactile sensation of bass. I live in a house, so I don't have to work about vibrations from the transducer transfering to other floors or rooms, but is an issue in apparments. I've been meaning to isolate my Obutto R3V cockpit with medium soft rubber to stop vibrations transferring to the floor and the rest of my cockpit. Even without isolating my seat, the Buttkicker does an amazing job when I'm listening to music.

I'm still waiting on PiMax 5k kickstarter HMD to be released, but I'm hoping I can quit using my monitor completely with it.

So seeing you have a headset, the A40s. They aren't very good compared to price equivalent Of DT 990's and as well as DT 770s now I would highly suggest upgrading to a headphone and a modmic or blue yeti.


Headsets are generally really bad, the A40s/A50s are ok, they aren't great but not bad. What I would do is move to headphones and a modmic. People have made this switch and love it. The DT 990s are stupid comfy, same for the DT 880s and DT 770s and any Bererdynamic headphones. They are so comfy, huge pads, deep cuffs, comfy, so much.

Open vs closed back

Headsets are generally closed back, however they have some issues with that. They tend to have bad audio positioning in the headset. They don't give spacial awareness and such.

Open headphones leak sound, so people around you can hear. The drivers are directly exposed or slightly covered. However they offer a lot better experience, much larger sound stage, much better audio positioning, and everything better overall.


Now for headphones, they don't come with mics so you have a few options. You can get a Blue Yeti mic, a modmic, Audio Technica AT2020, or similar. I'll list a few

u/Amj161 · 2 pointsr/headphones

Ah, I was looking at a different DT770, this one. That explains the discrepancies in our total price. If I were to go with the PC350SE, would I still need a sound card?

u/modano_star · 2 pointsr/headphones

I think this is the right place to post this.

I am relatively new to headphones, but am looking to take the step of purchasing some dt770s , but am unsure of the differences between the 80ohm and the 250ohm. But then there is the limited edition. I would like to use them with my ipod at times, and am trying to avoid spending more money for an amp, because I really don't want to go above £120-130. So would the limited edition be the best for me because of their lower impedance (I think the Limited Editions are 32ohm?) Are there other factors to take into account?


u/andysaurus_rex · 2 pointsr/headphones

I'd take a look at the Beyerdynamic DT 770 for sure. They come in a little under budget so you have enough for an amp if you go for the higher impedance versions. From what I've heard, these headphones have pretty great sounding bass and as a bonus feel like pillows on your ears.

u/MoogleMan3 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You can have a killer setup for under $500.

Mic: Audio Technica AT2005 - A great mic that a lot of let's players use (draax, zueljin, kingdaddydmac, etc.). It also accepts xlr or usb inputs (more on that at the end). I use the atr2100, which is the same mic, just different color and warranty. The at2005 is cheaper by about $25 right now, so buying today, that's the one I'd get. It's a dynamic mic, so it blocks out sound that's not in front of it. Much better for noisy environments. Condenser mics like the blue yeti will pick up a lot more background noise. Other mics I've used are the V-Moda Boompro, which works with most headphones that have detachable cables (in my case the M100s) and sounds good, but changing the cable for when I didn't want to use the mic became old pretty fast. You can leave it attached, but then the boom mic is there all the time. I've also used the antlion modmic 4.0 and can't recommend it. It has white noise unless you use a usb soundcard, the cable is stiff and it's kind of expensive compared to full fledged mics. $56

Stand: Pyle PMKSH01 Suspension Boom Scissor Microphone Stand - A decent cheap stand. Nothing special, but it comes with an integrated xlr cable. I use this one, but may upgrade to the Rode PSA1 ($100) later on. The shock mount will not fit the at2005 however. $21

Shock Mount: On-Stage MY420 - A great shock mount that fits the at2005/atr2100. Shock mounts reduce noises from bumping your desk or tapping on your keyboard; things that may reverberate to your mic. It might not even be necessary if you're not a heavy handed gamer or if your desk is made of a thick, dense material. $25

Wind Filter: On-Stage Foam Ball Windscreen - Reduces wind/breathing noises as well as minimizing plosives. Not a complete necessity, but extremely cheap and it does help, so why not? $3

Cable management: Velcro One-Wrap Cable Wraps - I use these for keeping the usb cable for the mic attached to the stand. Extremely useful and cheap. $6

Headphones: Very subjective to user preference. I prefer closed vs open for noise isolation. Here's what I've used:

Audio Technica ATH M50: Good (not great) headphones for ~$100. Considered the standard by many, but to me they're just good. $155

V-Moda M100: Excellent sound with very potent bass. They make the M50s sound muddy in comparison. HOWEVER, the M100s have a design flaw where the "wings" (the parts above where you adjust the headphones) will crack over time. It happened to two pairs of my M100s. Unacceptable for the price of these headphones, regardless of how good they sound. $222

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohm: Amazing. Potent bass like the M100s, but even a bit clearer. Very wide soundstage for closed headphones. I paid $219 for mine and don't regret it a single bit. I might grab another pair at the price they're currently at. $150

All that adds up to around $261 + tax choosing the DT770s, and will be a killer setup for gaming. Far better than any "gaming" headset, and it even opens the option of streaming or let's play videos (the reason I got my setup). There is one more thing I'd add though, given the budget if you're serious about mic quality, and that's the $99 Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2nd Gen. It's a usb audio interface that accepts xlr mics. It gives you a bit more control over the audio coming out of your mic and cleans up the signal so you get less "noise" from the usb interface. Quality is good without it, but with it, it's noticeably better.

Hope this helps some! I spent quite a while researching things when I put my own setup together. :)

u/HattedSandwich · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You would need a separate mic but I picked up a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 80ohm pros during Prime Day for $120, coupled with a SoundBlaster E3 DAC I have been sucked into another world. The noise cancellation is phenomenal and bass is incredible, but doesn't drown out the highs either. Best part is I can take it on the go with my phone if I want, so the versatility is appreciated. For the uninitiated a DAC is an external amplifier that also converts sound from digital to analog, making it crisper without the noise interference that internal sound cards can produce. The E3 can really crank up whatever you're listening to.

Hope this helps, not a true audiophile but it was a huge step up from my old Logitech set. Gaming headsets bad, studio headphones good

u/hack_tc · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

You might consider these beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 ohm Studio Headphones

u/sixandchange · 2 pointsr/buildapc

A lot of pro-sumer headphones are horrible sounding to anyone listening critically. They are often extremely 'colored,' meaning that extra EQ or sound forming has been applied to make them sound "high definition" or, typically, bass-y and boomy as hell (I'm talking about Beats here).

Most audiophiles or musicians would want to use headphones with a more transparent sound that works to achieve the most accurate representation of the recorded or original content, as it was intended to be heard by the creator. That's where the issue of impedance comes in, because a lot of truly professional cans (with no internal sound forming or false amplification) will require more power to bring up the volume.

There are plenty that don't though, for instance the Beyer Dynamic dt770 can come in either 250 ohms or 80 ohms, the 80 ohm being more suited for being driven by consumer electronics.

u/bilwis · 2 pointsr/Yogscast

Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, they are great headphones, well built, sturdy and comfortable. I've used them for years. Well suited for all sorts of music and gaming, but around 120£. They sell them with different impedance levels, I recommend getting the 80 Ohm version, which could be driven by an on-board sound card, or the 32 Ohm ones if you want to use them with your phone.

Here's a review.

Also, take care to get the DT 770 PRO, the DT 770 M are specialized drummers' headphones that do not work well with "normal" use.

u/Dallagen · 2 pointsr/headphones

The momentums are very meh, I can also recommend Beyerdynamic DT770s (which are very comfortable and closed instead of open) with a modmic, but you may need a dac/amp for them depending on your onboard audio. I'd recommend 100% actually DT770s with a Dac/Amp which will use Optical in from your PC and output through the jack on the front, when it comes to being used with your phone, you may have problems however, so if you can't afford to buy something like a FiiO A1 alongside it to power the headphones at the same time, you may want something else such as Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros.

u/Match-Sticks · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I also bought a Antlion Audio ModMic Attachable Boom Microphone & Creative Sound Blaster E5 High-Resolution USB DAC 600 ohm Headphone Amplifier with Bluetooth, to go with them.

Not sure what you will be driving your cans with, so you may or may not want/need a headphone amp. Definitely think Beyerdynamics are worth a look. I've found that a proper set of headphones put gaming headsets to shame.

u/xPurplexAnarchyx · 1 pointr/headphones

Just to let you know bluetooth and wireless headphones in general tend to be completely overpriced and have worse sound quality than most significantly lower priced headphones, so people won't really recommend you anything.

If you don't mind conceding wireless headphones I can suggest the Audio-Technica ATH-A900x if you want something balanced and have a average/+ head, although some find the bass impact lacking (not me).

If you want something v-shaped then I'd recommend the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro.

Could try these out. DT 770 pro 80ohm

u/echotomator · 1 pointr/headphones

I live in Canada, amazon preferred for purchasing. Alot of stuff on the US amazon is not available in Canada.

Budget - $200 CDN (about $150 USD), flexible.
Source - PC front audio port (onboard audio)
Requirements for Isolation - Office use. I'll take what I can get. Would be nice to turn it up without others hearing it.
Will you be using these Headphones in Public? - Yes for at work, but appearance isn't an issue.
Preferred Type of Headphone - Full sized
Preferred tonal balance - Dubstep-type music mainly. Bass is good.
Past headphones -
1: Blackbox M10SE. They were decent but seriously flimsy and tin can sounding. Had a suction feeling on your ears and TOO quiet. Most 3.5mm connectors didn't fit. I didn't do much research in those days.

2: Razor Blackshark. Built like a tank. Sound could be better, but not bad. Never any ear cushions in stock, seems intentional. Headphones still working after 1 year but ear cushions are toast. Never had to readjust them.

3: Mostly $50 radioshack stuff, breaks after 3 - 4 months.

Preferred Music - Dubstep, psytrance..etc

Warning, loud.

What would you like to improve on from your set-up - Mainly, something that's built well and won't break; something that isn't designed to fail. Pretty much anything would be a sound upgrade at this point. Comfort with prolonged use would be nice.

Note: I am really interested in these: beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro

However, they are fairly old. Technology might have improved since then. A huge price drop from the $280 makes me suspicious. Not sure if the quality went downhill recently or what? I'm open to suggestions.

Since you want/need closed headphones so other people don't hear what you're listening to, and the M50s are rather.. eh, why not check out the DT770 pro 80 ohm

  • Better SQ than the M50s, and for most people I've known to switch, better than the 598s (pretty close, just depends on the person)

  • Closed

  • Block quite a bit of outside noise, can be used for travel in planes, etc

  • Can be driven by a phone/portable device/computer without an amp

  • Very comfortable

  • A bit bass heavy, but the sound quality is very good so it's not annoying/tiring

  • $165 (if it matters)
u/soggit · 1 pointr/Games

I hear good things about the sennheiser 558, and 598s. I tried a pair of hte 555s once and they were not for me. Those were the lower quality ones though so the opinion may not be valid compared to the 8 series.

I have also heard good things about AKG (with a warning about the headband) and apparently these are really good for their cheap price.

However if I were choosing a pair I would probably go with these (actually...i havent price checked these in quite a while. I'm going to buy them right now)

if you're purely gaming then the astro a40s are really nice, albeit overpriced because of their branding. they come with what is actually pretty damn impressive amp. if you dont have a soundcard then i recommend these as an excellent choice. they also work with xbox 360 if you fancy that.

u/zachdini · 1 pointr/headphones
  • Budget - $300. If necessary, I can go over another $50 or so but I'd like to stay around $300.

  • Source - I'll be using these on the go (in the library at school, on the subway...) so they'll either be plugged into my iPhone or laptop 99% of the time.

  • Requirements for Isolation - I like a lot of isolation. It doesn't need to be absolutely 100% but the closer to it, the better. I'll be using these on the train and at school.

  • Preferred Type of Headphone - Over the ear (I'm pretty sure that's the same as full-sized?)

  • Preferred tonal balance - I like an overall balanced sound. I really enjoy smooth midranges that give a nice warm sound but I wouldn't want that to come at the price of sound quality and clarity. I don't want overpowering bass but I definitely like it to be there.

  • Past headphones - At the moment, B&W P5. They were my first pair of headphones and I loved them for a few years (I've had them for 3+ years now) until I started listening to other quality cans. Now, the soundstage of my B&Ws sounds pretty thin. The balance they give off seems pretty nice to me, though. But that could just be because they were my first pair.

    I'm also borrowing my dad's Sony MDR7506s for the next week or so to see how I like them. Immediately, I could tell that they produce a much nicer soundstage than my B&Ws. I'm still trying to get used to the difference in tone but I really like the Sonys. If they were the best within my price range, I would have no problem sticking with them.

  • Preferred Music - I listen to a lot of genres. A lot of rock/folk/bluegrass type of stuff (Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, The Allman Brothers, Phish), a lot of electronic stuff (Ratatat, The Chemical Brothers, Baths), a lot of jazz, and a good amount in between.

  • Headphones I've been looking at - I've been really leaning towards the Sennheiser Momentums (I could've sworn I just saw these for less than $300 on Amazon a few days ago? Am I going crazy?). I was also looking into Shure SRH840s, Beyerdynamic 770s, and just came across reviews for the PSB M4U 1s. I'm open to any opinions and suggestions! Thanks!
u/FumbledAgain · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

If you're looking to get into a solid pair of headphones without spending so much, I'd recommend taking a look at the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. Get 250 ohm ($200) if you plan to use an amp, or 80 Ohm ($140) if you want to be able to drive them with a laptop or a phone. They sound phenomenal, are both cheaper and far superior to Beats, and will be a great introduction to audiophile headphones.

They won't compete directly with the Sennheiser HD 800, but they're also 1/6 the price. They're also built like tanks, and yet are far more comfortable than something like the Sony MDR-V6 or MDR-V7506, which are more compact. However, the comfort difference is huge and the fact that they sit around your ears rather than on them is both much more comfortable and better for sound isolation from your surrounding environment. These are very popular with folks running budget home recording studios.

> A DAC/AMP recommendation would also be greatly appreciated, if it requires to fully utilize the headphones that you may recommend.

If you are hooking up directly to your desktop you won't need a DAC. For most headphones you won't need a amplifier either, especially in the <$150 range.

> I want to get myself some audiophile studio grade headphones and I have a budget of anywhere from $0-150

If you are recording anything with a mic while wearing headphones get the Beyerdynamic DT770 80 ohm. M50s are way too bass heavy and will make any mix come out sounding lean on other headphones (except perhaps Beats by Dre or Skullcandy). The DT770 is slightly V-shaped in sound, meaning the bass and treble are slightly accentuated over the mid-range, but this is pretty standard for a closed back headphone.

If you won't be recording anything through a mic while using these headphones get the Sennheiser HD579 or Sennheiser HD598. Either of these will be neutral with great comfort and detail.

The best mixing will always be done using studio monitors (typically 2 powered studio monitors) first, then tested with a nice pair of headphones, and finally a pair of Apple earbuds (if your mix sounds nice on those then they will sound fine on anything). I personally have a pair of JBL LSR305 and would highly recommend them for music listening, but would recommend the Yamaha HS5 for mixing since they are more neutral. If you decide to invest in a pair of studio monitors in the future you will need to hook them up to an audio interface, otherwise they will hiss at you. I use a Scarlett 2i2, but if you aren't using the XLR inputs for instruments/mic then any audio interface will do.

Brat mi je bas otisao u inostranstvo pa ne mogu da ti uporedim ove moje i njegove ali te njegove AT su malo manje od mojih . I bas kad sam gledao koje slusalice da kupim mnogi su govorili da je jedina mana kod ovih mojih to sto nisu bas portable (ne znam pravi izraz na srpskom ) ali posto su meni trebale samo po kuci , kao sto izgleda da tebi trebaju , ja sam ih uzeo i nisam se pokajao . Prednost kod ovih AT sto uz njih dobijes cini mi se 3 kabla , jedan mali , jedan veliki i jedan onaj uvijeni , i tako da ako ti se pokvari mozes lako da zamenis .

  • Budget - 100 gbp (sterling), it's definitley flexible. That's for just the headphones as well.

  • Source - I was planning on an amp of some sort maybe this Bravo AUDIO V2 I've used it in the past but no other headphone amps so not sure if this is as good I believe. It does look funky though as well.

  • Requirements for Isolation - I am open to open back headphones (that gives you a bigger soundstage right? that's what I'm after really) so it can let some background noise in or out but not so much that it's noticeable. Probably closed headset would be a safer bet I imagine.

  • Will you be using these Headphones in Public? - Very doubtful, but possible.

  • Preferred Type of Headphone - I want headphones that wrap around my ear not rest on the ear, I find it more comfortable.

  • Preferred tonal balance - close to balanced but with more bass, not bass as in over the top but as in I can hear the difference with different bass notes.

  • Past headphones - Previous headphones have been trash to be honest and only purchased because I needed something in a hurry and didn't know any better. Currently using some plantronics gamecom headset and mic combo, they're pretty good value for money when you have the drivers for artificial surround sound.

  • Preferred Music - It tends to be some form of funk, disco, house or dance but not limited to them that's just what I listen to the majority of the time. Here's a playlist of mine you can see that the latest ten tracks differ slightly.

    Now the format has been followed I'll show you what I have so far for options, if they're all shit fair enough.

  1. Audio-Technica

  2. Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro

  3. Beyerdynamic DT770 - although there are multiple ohm versions, I'm not sure would be right for me.

    Whichever of these that I'll get I'll probably get that amp I linked above, unless any of you nice folks have a better recommendation.
u/ChocolateHoopz · 1 pointr/bapcsalesuk

They're available here. It's the 250ohm model which is the one I have! If you want a close pair, get the 770, if you want an open pair get the dt 990s!

Budget - Around £130ish

Source - iPhone 5s, Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series laptop, Marshall MG100DFX Amplifier, Yamaha DTX450 Electric Drum kit

Requirements for Isolation - Probably going to be using it them on the train

Will you be using these Headphones in Public? - yes, walking to university and stuff

Preferred Type of Headphone - Circumaural, but could open to on-ear if they're comfortable

Preferred Music - all genres of metal and rock. Occasional hip-hop and electronic but 95% rock and metal

Location - UK

Past Headphones - Sony MDR-XB300, Logitech UE6000

I was pretty happy with the UE6000 but they're broken, I've not managed to fix them and Logitech customer service was incredibly bad. Thought I might look for an upgrade. I've been looking at the Beyerdynamic DT770, the Audio Technica ATH-MSR7 (slightly more expensive than id like to spend but if theyre worth it I'd buy them) and I could sway to the [Sennheiser HD-25s] (, I don't really like on ear headphones as I generally wear them for long periods but I could be swayed if they're comfortable. Thanks for your time.

u/InigoMontoya47 · 1 pointr/headphones

I love my MadDogs by Mr. Speakers

They are a mod of the Fostex T50RP, here's a good review:

Some say they require an amp, I bought a small FiiO E12 which is small and portable, but it's not required to get them up to a good listening volume. I listen to everything from Rap/Hip-hop to EDM to Classical on these guys, had them 2 years. Might upgrade to the Alpha's soon.

If you want more of a lifestyle headphone, I'd go with something like the Sennheiser Momentum or the VMODA M100

People also rave about the Beyerdynamic DT 770, someone else will have to weigh in on those, I've never heard them. I hear they are on the bassier side, but not overwhelming. Not sure what Ohm option will suit you best, so do some research on that if you're interested in those cans.

Finally, if you want to go cheaper, bought these for my buddy last year to use as office cans, I'm pretty sure he just never takes them off. Very neutral sound, light, but durable, I love them but my ears stick out and touch the drivers which gets irritating after a while. Part of the reason I went with mad dogs is there's plenty of room for my Dumbo sized satellite dishes.

Good luck.

u/miquelpedro · 1 pointr/edmproduction

i'd go with a good pair of headphones:

then just be sure to double check your low end with a good spectrum analyzer. here are some free ones:

u/Brillegeit · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

> If he is just using it for gaming, does he really need the best mic quality though?

Yes, especially so since it's not going to be used in a professional environment. In a room and placement terrible for recording, and in use in live situations by incompetent users, you need to compensate as much as possible with hardware.

Get a near field condenser microphone with a table stand, and you're at least not going to be the most hated mouth breather of your gaming friends. Someone mentioned a Blue Snowball, I don't have any experience with that model, but it sounds like an OK option. I've got an Samson C01U and a Sinn7 mPod, both in from the $70-80 range, but they're 6-7 years old now, so I'm sure there are newer models available. $50-100 on microphone and $150-300 on headphones is nothing for something lasting a decade or two if maintained and taken care of. And in that context, get a pair of entry level professional grade headphones from one standard brands and a model that focuses on repairs. An OK example is BD DT770 Pro where you can order replacement parts all over the world from service partners and replace almost any part that might break or just need replacement because of extended use. I've got a 10 year old pair I use at work, and have replaced the pads three times and several other parts as well to maintain perfect order.

u/nikorev · 1 pointr/headphones

Thanks for the information! I found a link for the dt770s on amazon for $30 more. I may go with them because I have prime and amazon is much more reliable. But one thing I noticed was there is a gray and black color. They both look identical other than the earcups, and the black one being limited edition. Am I missing anything, or is it just $50 more for black earcups?

u/SabinCrusades · 1 pointr/letsplay

I work in the film industry doing post-production management. Our company uses these babies, as they're pretty well balanced for audio work. Just understand that they're meant for editing, so you won't be getting an over-powered bass, in case you're into that. But if you care about audio work, these are really great. I've loved them so far.

Alternatively, check out /r/headphones for more recommendations.

Good luck, man!

u/kluvin · 1 pointr/headphones

The Beyerdynamic DT series is well regarded for their bass. See for example the 770 PRO

If you're interested have a look at this guide.

u/irrelevant_query · 1 pointr/headphones

Maybe something like the DT770? Over the ear and doesn't have a replicable cord, but the next recommendation will have that :)

I've heard great things about the HM5 and it seems to fit your needs.

u/homeboi808 · 1 pointr/hometheater

That’s because the DVD and Blu-ray are treated as the same listing. Like for these headphones, there are 4 variants to choose from, and all the reviews are combined. If you look under the reviewers name, it says which version they are reviewing. You can filter by which model they are reviewing, the Blu-ray just came out, so no reviews.

But yes, that is the Blu-ray for ~$23. Even says so on the back.

u/sapphiretech368 · 1 pointr/headphones

Why you are suggesting me the DT 770 Pro 80 Ohm version over the 32 Ohm version?

And should I go for the Monitor version

Or the Studio version?

Thanks again!

u/EvanTheCannibal · 1 pointr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

I've had these 2 for a while and I highly recommend them:

[Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro](
/beyerdynamic-770-PRO-Studio-Headphones/dp/B0016MNAAI) ~120 euro

Scarlett Focusrite 2i4 ~140 euro

u/AndCockGoesTheGun · 1 pointr/headphones

Creative Aurvana Live! as your cheapest option, currently $45 at Amazon. A great budget basshead set of cans: bass is very, very strong, but the rest of the ranges are pretty nice, although the mid-range is slightly recessed.

At the height of your budget is the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro. They're known for having a fantastic bass response, and are recommended a lot in this sub. Similar properties to the Aurvana Live: bass is just great, midrange is recessed a bit, highs are clear. They're also very comfortable.

Make sure to get the 32 Ohm or 80 Ohm version (that I linked), and not a version with a higher impedance: the more Ohms the impedance is, the tougher it'll be to drive. The 250 Ohm version would require an external amplifier.

u/41treys · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

Hey, I ordered them from a local audio shop that was doing a promotion. For the 80 ohm, I don't know if this is a permanent price or not, but $143 for the 80 ohms is a steal. The Magni 3 from what I've read is beast. It should pair easily with the 80 ohm or the 250 ohm beyers.

u/TheSadGolem · 1 pointr/headphones

These ship to NZ. how're these? How do they compare to the 598's and the M50X's?

Also these were on the page. great combo. The mic seems alright

Edit: Also the OHM's seems really high. Would I need an amp?(I'm a noob)

u/meme_dealer69 · 1 pointr/musicproduction < i use these. they're fairly cheap (for professional headphones at least), and work fine without an interface (sidenote, i would definitely recommend the Focusrite 2i2 if you were to record any instruments).

Ive also seen people recommending the Audio-technica M50X, tho i dont know anything about em myself.

u/darmanastartes · 1 pointr/headphones

I could not tell you about the sound leakage tbh. I never had anyone complain while I was living at home and using them, but I don't remember how much I used them in public areas of the house.

The only closed headphone I have much experience with besides the Fostex is the Beyerdynamic DT-770, which is very comfortable but again will not have the best soundstage for gaming because it's closed. I would get the 80 ohm or 32 ohm version if you don't have a dedicated amp. Also the current Amazon price is pretty high, I've seen them for much lower ($130ish).

u/Brainiarc7 · 1 pointr/MSILaptops

My personal recommendation: Take the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 Ohms version.

On Amazon:


  1. High impendance. Puts the ESS Sabre Audio DAC to good use.
  2. Excellent sound quality. Basses are well reproduced with excellent audio clarity.
  3. Closed back: If you require near-perfect audio cancellation, this is for you.
  4. No gimmicks: You get a quality headset with no useless gimmicks such as virtual sorround (often baked to inflate perceived value, such as the Beats By Dre shills).
  5. Compatible with mod mics: If you prefer external microphone support, such as these by AntLion, you're in for a treat:

    Speaking from experience, as that combination is my daily driver.

    What do you get from all this?

    (a). Independent volume control for both chat (via the mic) and in-game and audio output (via the headset).
    (b). No compromises: Should you prefer to repurpose this headset for professional audio production, say, in a studio, any high-powered DAC will drive it.

    Note that the ESS Sabre Audio is rated to drive up to 600 Ohm headsets, so it should be able to drive anything in the market. The reason I recommend the 80 Ohm over the 250 Ohm headset is because the perceived audio quality between the two headsets is almost identical, for a much more affordable entry point.

    Have fun.

alright thank you. I have couple questions.

  1. I have also been recommended the beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro, 80 Ohms. Which one is more suitable and why?

  2. What makes the sz2000's better over my sz1000?

  3. Would buying the 2000's solve the phone distortion problem? I liked the 1000s. Would it make sense for me to buy another set of the 1000's and buy a portable amp?
u/darkworldaudio · 1 pointr/audio

No problem, I don't really recommend headphones as it really depends on how they will be used and what people are looking for from them. If you're going to be at a desk and like nice, rich, full sounding music then I'd say go with something like DT 770 Pro 80 Ohms, my favourite headphones I've ever used. You'll need to save a bit more but it's all personal preference.

u/strken · 1 pointr/france

Celui ci est en promo sur le tu sais ce qu'il vaut? Tu sais si le cable est interchangeable?

u/Slurrpin · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

If you haven't already posted there, /r/headphoneadvice might be more helpful.

At £100 you have some options.

If you want to save some money the Creative Aurvana Live are excellent value.

Closer to £100, the Beyerdynamic DT990 pro are likely the best available to you. They're open-backed and have a distinct treble-focused sound which you might not like. If you need to be isolated from your surroundings or don't want other people to hear what you're listening to, they may not be suitable.

The DT770 pro is an alternative if you need something closed back. They're along the same lines, limited from being closed back, but still better than 95% of what £100 will get you.

The SIVGA SV005 are also rumoured to be quite good value, but unlike the others I've listed I haven't heard them myself. It's another option to look into.

All of these have different strengths and limitations, you'd do yourself a favour to look into reviews before buying; multiple reviews - don't trust anything a single person says, look for what people agree on.

Just stay away from headsets marketed towards gamers, Razer, Logitech, Turtle Beaches, they're almost always poor value, poor quality, overpriced, and fragile.

u/w0rdling · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Seeing those logitechs has me worried considering the otherwise near top-end build and matching budget. Sound is basically one half of your overall audiovisual experience, and spending a measly 2% of your budget on sound (even less if you factor in a proper display) davaluates all the money spent for better graphics a lot in my opinion.

Keep also in mind that competent audio equipment will basically last you a lifetime so that's an investment you won't have to repeat, unlike the rest of the system which will become obsolete and need replacement eventually if you want to maintain high/ultra settings at high resolution and FPS.

For speakers, a commonly recommended part is this. They're not terribly expensive (again, you're probably never going to replace these) and will wipe the floor with the logitech set in any relevant metric like it's not even funny.

If you prefer headphones then these coupled with this amplifier can be considered a moderate cost solution with no major compromises.

u/Hennniii · 1 pointr/headphones

Budget - $200 hard limit (USA)

Source - PC

Requirements for Isolation - Yes, from the research I've done closed-back headphones are good for this?

Will you be using these Headphones in Public? No

Preferred Type of Headphone - Full-sized (circumaural?)

Preferred tonal balance - I think I want some headphones that are more toward the bass side but not too heavy. I play a few shooters (RS2Vietnam, BF1, CSGO, ARMA 3) and I think the music I listen to is on the mid-low side. Sorry if this sounds vague I just discovered this subreddit a few days ago.

Past headphones - Right now i'm rockin some $10 earbuds from Wal-Mart, not sure of the brand but its all-white i'm assuming Apple?

Preferred Music - I will mostly be using this for gaming and watching shows/movies/anime >90% of the time, but for the music I will be listening to, some R&B, Hip hop, lofi hip hop, Deep House, Flume, ODESZA, Chet Faker, Big House EDM, The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Weezer, Tokyo Police Club, Coconut Records

What would you like to improve on from your set-up - Better sound quality and some comfort. I would prefer it if they were compatible with a BoomPro mic, but it is not a requirement.

I did some looking and I came upon these pairs as possible headphones that might be good for what i'm looking for. The first two are what i'm leaning towards and the rest are in no specific order.

1.) Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro Plus ($172.33) -

2.) Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 ohm ($179.00) -

3.) AKG 550 ($139.95) -

4.) Audio-Technica MSR7BK ($193.99) -

5.) Shure SRH840 ($179.00) -

6.) Fostex T50RP MK3 ($154.90) -

7.) Audio-Technica M40x ($79.00) -

Are these headphones appropriate for what i'm looking for? If not may I get a suggestion for what you think would be better? Also, what YouTube channels should I watch for reviews and to learn more about headphones in general? The only one I've watched so far is ZReviews.

For my last question, I am considering buying a soundcard (the Xonar DGX) with these headphones, is it enough to power the DT770 model i'm looking at?

Sorry for the wall of text, I was trying to be as detailed as I could with my limited knowledge. Thank you for reading this and your time!

u/dibujor · 1 pointr/headphones

What is your budget: 200 € that should include any potential Amp/Dac needed to run the cans

Source: pretty old Desktop PC. Integrated Realtek HD Onboard sound. Have a soundblaster. I don't know if it works properly though. Maybe I'll hook them to a PS4 too every now and then.

Isolation: Don't need to be totally isolated from exterior world. I'll use these mainly at night. Sadly I think I have to
dismiss open or semiopen cans because my wife will be at a 2-3 meters from me, sleeping. Maybe in the future can look into some open cans
for daytime use.

Used in Public? No, home office, interior only

Preferred type of headphone: Full size, circumaural.

Preferred tonal balance: I don't really know, and I'll explain. These will be my workhorse. I'll use them to play
music while working (work at home as an illustrator), skype with clients, discord with friends (I'll be buying the AntLion Modmic)
edit videos (not music videos though), Films, Youtube, Playing games...
So I guess they have to be a bit allrounder. That means neutral? Can't really tell, this will be my first pair of
"good" headphones, or the first pair I've done research instead of picking the first cans I saw on the shelf.

Past headphones: An assortment of cheap headphones and a couple gaming sets (don't even recall the names).
The ones I have now are a pair of Philips SHP2000. You can tell almost anything will be an improvement.

Preferred Music: I listen to almost everything, from classical to hip hop. Jazz, Blues, Rock, Metal, Folk. It really depends on my mood.
So not much help here either to go for a defined tonal balance I'm afraid.

Location: Spain, I have access to, Ebay, etc. Don't know much of this world so couldn't tell any place audio specific.

What would you like from your headphones? As I said I want them to be a bit of allrounder. I want to clearly hear the voices when I'm
voice chatting, Clear sound when playing music and Good sound when gaming. And since I'll be wearing them several hours a day, they should be comfortable.

I have an average (towards big because of hair) head and average ears but I do wear glasse so maybe that's a concern if the grip is too tigh.
I know all this "requirements" mean they won't be the best at anything but I'm not an audiophile either....yet, I guess.

I've been researching a lot of reviews, videos, forums and I've seen a lot of recomendations, and situations similar to mine.
So I thought asking here with the template would help me to nitpickc and better tailor the buy for me, since I'm spending that much (for me anyway, I know this hobby can go pretty crazy pretty fast).
In fact in my initial research I wanted to spend max 200€ inclusing the modmic (so that left 130-150 for the headphones) but looking and researching had me raising the dough destined to the cans by a bit everytime
just in case "this new ones they recommend maybe are much better".

I have a list of what I found after a lot of research. I don't even know if any of those will be any good for my situation. There are two "leagues" of cans there as you'll see,
but those really cheap ones I included because I see them recommended a lot as "sound as headphones double or triple their price". Maybe that's BS but... maybe not and I can save me some money

The ones over 200€ I might consider them if they are really, REALLY much, much, much better than any of the other options.
Since going over 200 would have me waiting a bit more to get the cash.

Here's what I have:

  • Superlux HD681 and HD668B - 31€ & 38€ respectively at Amazon. These are the ones people recommend as "above their league" so I included them here. I know they're Samson ripoffs?

  • Beyerdynamic D770 Pro - 125€ at Amazon. Another ones with a lot of recommendations, along with the M50X. Some say better, some say equal...

  • Audio Technica ATH M50X - 135€ at Amazon. Seem people either love 'em or hate 'em. Youtubers favourite (not that that's a valid reason to pick a pair of cans for me anyway). I know there are way better options, they're here just because they fit into my price range

  • Soundmagic HP150 - 150€ at Amazon. Seen a few recommendations for this ones.

  • Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro - 150€ at Amazon. Seen them recommended here

  • Sony MDR-1A - 185€ at Amazon. Late addition from a few reviews I read

  • Audio Technica MSR 7BK - 185€ at Amazon. The bigger, better, improved brother of the M50X?

  • Audio Technica ATH A900x - 219€ at Amazon. Seems these run for more than that, and people love them, but at that price they're out of my budget. May consider waiting for them if they're absolutely the best for my situation

  • B&O BeoPlay H6 - 238€ at Amazon. Same as the A900x. These are also damn sexy looking like everything Bang & Olufsen does (but that doesn't count towards my decision ;D)

    Of course this is only a list of what I've found during my research, but feel free to recommend me anything you feel can be better for me even if not on the list.

    Thank you very much.

When I was working as an audio QC engineer, I was wearing headphones with glasses for 8+ hours every day and listening at pretty high volumes. I use the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (80ohm) and they never get uncomfortable or fatiguing even after wearing them for many hours. Also they sound damn good and have awesome low-end response I've never heard matched on other headphones, and they're pretty affordable.

Hey there. I'm very satisfied with it, actually. I love it. Added a secondary 1TB HDD and another 8GB RAM to it.

I returned my first one because it had dead pixels, and this second one had a loose trackpad but as time passed it has fixed itself.

The cooling is good. I have a cooling pad for it just in case though. I'm browsing on Firefox right now with about 10 tabs open, listening to music while having Visual Studio open and it is all silent and cool.

Keep in mind that I have these headphones. I can't hear the fans at all with them on but from the few times I played some games without the headphones, it wasn't disturbing me much. You wouldn't have a problem with the games you play.

If you benefit from a return policy, give it a shot! If you don't like it, you can always return it.

MSI also provides you with both a CD and a partition that has all the necessary drivers (if you choose a FreeDOS unit).

Howdy howdy!

>An in-line or attachable boom is fine. The quality of the mic doesn't have to be great, I'll only use it for casual gaming with friends (Overwatch, Dischord). I'd much rather put the money into a quality headset.

Sounds good to me. In a budgetary pinch, a [Sony lapel mic] ( might be considered an option as well if picking up room noise isn't a big problem - those little units are rather good quality, actually, but are completely omnidirectional vs. the cardioid mics in the Modmic and Boompro, so you get a lot of pickup for stuff like computer fans, keyboards, noise in the room, etc.

>Symphonic metal (Epica, Nightwish, Diabulus en Musica) is probably 90% of what I listen to. The last 10% is random youtube oddball stuff (Kontrust, árstíðir, Too Many Zooz)

Eyy, fellow Nightwish fan! Been a fan since before Tarja split.

>It's not necessary for them to be new, I would trust your judgement. I am not very experienced with buying used stuff over ebay, so I'd prefer a specific item recommendation in that case, if possible.

Totally understandable - I wouldn't just tell you "you can probably get it for this price" and then just leave ya to the wilds :)

Hm, so, overall, wanting something more clear than the G930 - unlikely to be hard if the G930 sounds anything like the lower-end Logitechs I've heard, which had terrible treble - but with fairly substantial bass, and keeping outside noise out is a plus.

The first thing that makes me think of at your price point is the [Beyerdynamic DT770] (, specifically the lower impedance 80 ohm variant which will play nicer with the voltage-limited integrated audio circuitry of your motherboard. The DT770 is something of a classic, having been a studio mainstay for more than three decades at this point, and it's also a rather durable design. By [measurements] (, it's a "v-shaped" headphone, in that its bass and treble are both boosted vs. the midrange. The treble is sometimes a sticking point for people, however - I know several who find it harsh, and even I think it's a bit much for some music. The isolation is rather robust, particularly in the midrange, where things like voices (for example, children shouting) are located. The DT770-80 pops up for maybe $100-120~ used fairly regularly, but I can't find any active listings at a quick sweep around the usual locations. You could grab [one off eBay] (, however, as you'd likely just need to replace the earpads if they're a bit flattened by wear.

Another option that is rather robust for your requirements would be [NAD's Viso HP50] ( It's a [very quirky-looking headphone] (, no bones about it. but it [measures brilliantly] ( for those looking for a more laid-back, warm sound signature. The bass is boosted, but not vastly so, and the boost is concentrated in the impact/"rumble"-boosting subbass region, rather than the higher bass and lower mids which often lead to a rather veiled or congested sound when boosted. The isolation, as with the DT770, is very robust. It's very easily powered, and would probably run easily off your cell phone and computer both. The main caveats here are twofold: one, it's rather expensive new - about $250 via most stores. This one is pretty easy to address, as it's fairly easy to find used for <$150 (for example, [this Audiogon listing] ( The second, however, is more individual and less easily addressed if it does afflict you: the HP50 is just a rather oddly-proportioned headphone, and many find it a bit uncomfortable, either due to the odd design of the headband, or the atypical proportions of the earpads. Some folks find it entirely comfortable, so this is definitely a matter of personal experience and preference, but it could be an issue since you can only fit it in budget buying used, and you can't return a used purchase if it's unergonomic like you can an Amazon buy.

On the open-backed side of things, an option you might consider is Philips' [Fidelio X1] (, which is a rather nice headphone for those liking a bassier tuning. It's bass-boosted, but not ludicrously so, and there's just a tad of treble boost to add a bit of life to the treble. Many, myself included, find it rather spacious in sound, relative to the rather closed-in headphones above. It's [fairly reasonably-priced used] ( as well (note: you need a Head-Fi account to buy via Head-Fi, though once you have one you should be able to just PM the fellow, bypassing the "buy/sell forums are for active poster" rule). It should also support the Boompro, whereas the others would need a Modmic or other separately attached mic, due to their lack of detachable single-entry TRS cables. The downside is that it's an entirely open design, and while it measures with [a bit of isolation] (, it's not really going to keep any meaningful amount of sound in or out. As a result, it might not be an ideal option for your usage, but since there's one in your price range used at the moment, and it meets several other criteria well, I thought I'd include it.

Here's a kinda unit fourth option: JBL's [Everest Elite Wireless 700] ( It's a heckuva quirky design from an audio nerd standpoint - Bluetooth-equipped, active noise cancellation, integrated digital calibration to your ear, in general it profiles like a gadget marketed to consumers without much discernment in audio quality. But, there's a twist: the Elite 700 is actually a very competent design, as [the measurements attest] ( It's a bit bass boosted, but in an entirely tasteful way, and honestly in active mode it may well be one of the better headphones in its price range. It even has an integrated mic, as a matter of fact. The active noise cancellation will also make it markedly better than any of the other mentioned units at keeping out outside noise. The drawbacks are twofold: First, it's about $300 new. This isn't a huge problem, it's a popular headphone from a major lifestyle brand, so you can find a lot of them used, including from major retailers [like B&H] ( which are within price range. The second, however, is larger: it's really a headphone that must be used with the power on, because a lot of its quality comes from the digital signal processing going on inside the unit - without it, you get [this] (, which while not terrible is definitely sub-standard. As a result, though you're not forced to use it on Bluetooth (it can be run "active" while wired), you will need to charge it regularly, and it can run out of juice on you, which I understand can be quite annoying. That said, it can also be used in wireless mode when wanted if your PC is bluetooth capable, and it's a rather well-rounded option for what you want, so it might be worthy of consideration, caveats aside.

There are other options in this price range which also might be good for your needs here - AKG K550, Sennheiser HD598C, V-Moda M100 - but I'm running up on the character limit, and I know I tend to produce boring walls of text when I talk audio, so I figure I'll cut it off at the four arguably strongest options, and go into the others if you ask for it.

Edit: the Elite 700 has two more minor notes: 1, it's easily confused with the Everest 700, which, though not terrible - it's basically equivalent to the passive mode of the Elite 700 as far as I know - isn't really very good. 2, the mic is in the headphone and connected via the TRRS cable, so you'd likely need a TRRS > 2xTRS splitter in the proper pinout to use it with your PC.

Bruh, if "every headphone puts out different levels so realistically your math is probably completely wrong too" is deemed as saying why, then no doubt things like antivax are gaining in strength in today's world.

Argument =/= some anecdotal bullshit.

Have you even tried to verify your invalid claims? You just said they put out different levels and assumed you're right. But you definitely are. The thing is, not in the way you assumed. All of the headphones that I could find put out LOWER volumes, not higher. A counter argument would be saying why the math is wrong with examples, not that it's pRoBaBlY wRoNg BeCaUsE various headphones put out different levels. Show me what levels they put out. And the way it makes the math wrong.

These PeohZarr B07SHH37M6 put out 106db (ctrl+f: sensitivity)

These beyerdynamic B0011UB9CQ put out 96db in user manual.

These beyerdynamic 770 PRO also put out 96db in specification sheet.

And I always looked at specifications of headphones I buy, because shit like this is just interesting to me. And I assure you - I've never seen a value higher than 120db. You can try to find me one. Link to Amazon > headphones.


>You can’t do the math for one certain headphone and call it a day.

Switch my 112db with any of these values and the result is even more in my favor.

Edit: link typo and change example.

u/djk21108 · 1 pointr/headphones

You're welcome. I'm a DT770 owner and they're one of my all time favorite headphones. Comfort is paramount and Beyerdynamic does a great job with that.

if you never needed the headphones to leave your desk the DT770s may be a better fit at a slight price premium. They were under $120 during the Christmas season.

u/Strider793 · 1 pointr/headphones

Getting more headphones!
I'm looking for some rather bassy headphones, but I don't want them to skip out on the mids and highs, you know. I've narrowed my search down somewhat to two pair. Right now, anyway, I'm open to suggestions.

So right now, I'm looking at the DT 770s and the Custom One Pros

From what I've heard, the DT 770s are great, but sibilance can be an issue. And I don't want to be losing out on overall sound quality with the COPs.

However, the COPs are on Massdrop at the moment, so they're ~$70 cheaper than the 770s, and they've got the little bass switch thing.

So, how do the 770s compare to the COPs? Should I be looking at another pair of headphones for my bassy needs?

Budget - $230, Slightly flexible

Source - Schiit Magni

Requirements for Isolation - None

Preferred Type of Headphone - Over-ear

Preferred Tonal Balance - Basshead

Past Headphones - ATH-M50s, Superlux HD681 EVO, Currently AD900X

Preferred Music - Electronic in general, hip-hop, so on.

u/Scapee · 1 pointr/headphones

Also been looking around and debating between Philips X1 or Denon D600 or Sennheiser HD 598 or V-MODA Crossfade M-100 or Beyerdynamic-770-PRO-80 or Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro or ATH-AD900X

Im really leaning towards the Custom One pros since there on sale for 179.99 on ebay but are they better then Sennheiser HD 598?

Also how big is the difference between noise cancelling headphones with Open/Closed ones and would it matter with music playing?
Thank you so much for your advice :)

u/just_the_wave · 1 pointr/headphones

I'm about to fall for the expensive headphone meme. Which pair of headphones are better for rap (mostly stuff like Nujabes and Kanye), and hard punk rock (Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Black flag)? Torn between the ath m50x, dt770 (80 ohms), and dt990 32 ohms. Gonna be buying from Amazon. Also is there any difference between these two? Because one's on sale and the other isn't

The dt770 and dt990 seem to be going for damn cheap as well after checking on camelcamel so I'll probably go for those over the m50x cause I'm not gonna bring them around anywhere. Pls respond cause I'm afraid these low prices will dissapear overnight

u/adm96 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Screw 'em. Experiment with something new. In fact, there have recently been many sales on the DT770s which completely obliterate the M50x's. I owned the 80 Ohm varient and can say for sure that they are an absolute steal for the money. (Bass extension is beyond anything I've ever heard.)

u/florilsk · 1 pointr/headphones

It says that the only difference between the Studio and the CLASSICS is the name. And the pros are better than the classics so I would return it if possible. Mostly because you are also getting kinda robbed( here they are only 175. Get that if possible. Or you could go into Hifiman HE400S territory.

u/asdf4455 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Not OP, but I very much enjoy the sound of the HD600's. super easy to listen to and not harsh at all. Kind of expensive, since you need an aplifier to get the best sound of them, which just adds to the price. I have a few recommendations for under 150 dollar headphones.

If you're looking for some great open back headphones, I recommend the AD-700X. Very open, with an airy sound. I enjoy them the most for vocals. not much bass, however. I also really enjoy these for gaming. the design of them is a odd for headphones so they might not be the best fit for your head.

Another option is the SHP9500. also open and similar to the HD600's in that they handle almost all music well. Can't really complain on how they handle most things, except for maybe bass heavy music. All around good headphones. Super comfortable to wear too.

If you want some closed headphones, I recommend the DT-770's 80 Ohm. not as easy to drive as the 32 Ohm version, but still should be fine with almost anything. If you plan on getting an amp, get the 250 Ohm version. I love these because the bass response is absolutely fantastic. If you enjoy EDM, hiphop, or any genre that is bass heavy, these are a no brianer. these have fantastic sub bass that doesn't muddy up the vocals. Maybe not the best for all genre types, as the higher frequencies can be fatiguing for some people.

If you're looking for a AMP to start off with, I recommend the FiiO E10K. cheap, and powerful enough to drive most headphones, unless they're very power demanding like the HD600's. If you want to go all out, getting a Schiit Stack like OP, or an ODAC combo works too. that's gonna be like 200+ though, so I recommend starting with something smaller.

Also, be sure to use Amazon's warehouse deals to get a "used" pair of any of these if you can. save some money on it, and if they're broken or damaged, amazon will gladly refund you. really is a money saver.

Will you be using these Headphones in Public? - Yes

Preferred Type of Headphone - Full-size/over ear. On-ears tend to hurt after wearing them for too long. Velvet ear cuffs are a big benefit too as they don't get as sweaty or start to fall apart as quickly.

Preferred tonal balance - Balanced. I listen to a lot of different music from rock/metal to dnb/house.

Past headphones - Only had gaming headsets so far: some cheap logitech ones that were alright, Sennheiser PC330 G4ME, Sennheiser G4ME ONE. Only problems with the first two were the ear cuffs falling to bits (and the mic dying on the PC330s), but the G4ME ONEs are incredible. I just need headphones with no mic to use in public.

Big fan of Sennheiser but I'm willing to branch out. Eyeing up DT770s but I'm not sure what the different Ohm rating changes.

u/kare_kano · 1 pointr/headphones

I'd go for some good musical and bassy headphones combined with an add-on mic, this way you get the best of both worlds. Gaming headsets aren't really designed for music.

My first choice would be to combine the V-Moda M-100 with a BoomPro... but they come at £20 over budget (at least on Amazon, perhaps look around for deals, or ask stores if they're willing to sell the combo for £200).

Second choice is to slap a ModMic on a Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 32 Ohm or DT990 Pro 32 Ohm (can't find these on Amazon, look them up in other places). Don't get Premium models or DT880, those are open back. Don't get models over 32 Ohm if you say you're goingo to plug them into the PC and you don't have a dedicated amplifier. This combo comes in under budget.

u/BluntTraumaNet · 1 pointr/headphones

Right now I am using some Astro A30's that I have had for a very long time.

I am going to be buying some new headphones for PC gaming and also watching movies/shows and listening to music.

I have done some reading and am 90% sold on the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 ohm Studio Headphones

The amazon link has an amplifier bundle (+200$) and also a converter bundle (+42$)

I think I need a DAC for these cans, but need advice on which DAC to get.

Also, I wanted to get a V-Moda instead of a ModMic, is the V-Moda possible with these?

Please give me some adice. Thanks for your help.

u/valkyr · 1 pointr/headphones

DT770 (80 Ohm) is down to $155 on Amazon. Adding a Fiio E10K amp/dac and a modmic puts you over your $200 budget, but it should suit your needs for a while til you get bitten by the upgrade bug.

If you intend to use them with a portable device, however, you may want to opt for the 32Ohm version, as the 80's won't get very loud connected to a smartphone. Just know that the 80/250 version's velour earpads are quite a bit more comfortable, IMO, than the leatherette on the 32 version.

Help! Comfortable Closed Back Headphone Needed.

  • Budget - £150 (approx $215)
  • Source - Laptop / Desktop computer with headphone amp.
  • Requirements for Isolation - Good isolation. Using mostly at home, so don't mind a bit of leak.
  • Will you be using these headphones in public - No.
  • Preferred Type of Headphone - Closed Back, Over Ear.
  • Preferred Tonal Balance - Good, neutral, wide sound. I don't mind a bit of emphasis on the low and high ends, as long as they are well controlled and not muddy. I actually quite liked the bassiness of the ATH-M50x, but a bit more control would be nice.
  • Past Headphones - Sennheiser HD 215 - very comfortable and they do sound good but looking for an upgrade.
  • AKG K72 - don't sound too bad for the price, a bit muffled and lacking clarity. Like the design and very comfortable.
  • AKG K550 - sounded amazing but I had a significant problem with comfort. After about 30 mins use, a real burning pain starts to slowly grow right at the crown of my head where the top of the headband rests. An hour in and it's pretty unbearable. As a result, they sat in my cupboard, unused for two years. I tried using them again a couple of weeks ago, but had the same issue, so I've been forced to sell them.
  • Audio Technica ATH-M50x - I would say that in terms of sound, these were definitely a bit of a downgrade. The overall sound is just a lot more muddied and coloured, and the soundstage is nowhere near as good as the K550s. They are a bit more comfortable, but not by much. I can only really use them for about 2 hours before I am in considerable pain from the headband. I think I will be returning these and trying to find something more comfortable.
  • Preferred Music - Listen to a bit of everything. Primarily EDM, Pop, Rock, Alternative, Classical.
  • What would you like to improve on from your set-up - Comfortable! For long periods. I think I might be better off with lighter headphones, since the pain is always due to pressure at the top of my head.
    -Good, neutral, wide sound. I don't mind a bit of emphasis on the low and high ends, as long as they are well controlled and not muddy.

    With this is mind, a couple of candidates so far:

  • Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohm - from what I've heard, supposed to be pretty comfortable. Link: [DT770] (
  • Sennheiser HD 380 Pro - again, supposed to be pretty comfortable and quite light. Not sure these are much of an upgrade in terms of sound. Link: HD 380
  • AKG K271 Mk II - Lightweight and have a similar headband design to a pair of AKG K72 I have, which are really comfy. Link: [K271] (

    What would you recommend out of these 3? Any better alternatives in my price range?

    If anyone can offer any advice or help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Honestly, good headphones are the best bang-for-buck item you can buy when you're starting out. My first pair of DT770 lasted me 12 years, and I thrashed those poor things.

By comparison, when people are shopping for monitor speakers, I generally tell people to avoid anything under about US$1500 - they all have to make compromises below that price..

As a plus, I've traveled internationally many, many times with them and I'll can attest, with 100% confidence, to how incredibly resilient they are.

Finally, they're surprisingly affordable. Hope this helps.

Budget - 200$

Source - Desktop, laptop, phone

Requirements for Isolation- I need a lot of isolation. I am actually buying these headphones to concentrate more while I code in a loud open office space. I am looking for headphones that cancel out people voice pretty well.

Will you be using these Headphones in Public? Yes, office space.

Preferred Type of Headphone - Full-Sized

Preferred tonal balance - Overall balanced headphones I listen to a lot of white noises while I work (ocean, rain) and house/techno music.

Past headphones - Sennheiser HD 419. I loved how comfortable they are, because of the foam pads. What I don't like its the fact that they don't really block outside noise.

What would you like to improve on from your set-up - More noise isolation/cancellation.

I am currently leaning towards the DT 770 80 ohm

Source - Headphone amp on E-drums (Yamaha DTX500) and O2.

Requirements for Isolation - Some isolation would be nice, so I wouldn't hear the pads on the drums.

Preferred Type of Headphone - Over-ear, closed and with straight cable. I'd also prefer Beyerdynamic.

Preferred tonal balance - Balanced, with solid bass (gotta lock in with that bass guitar!).

Past headphones - Beyer DT-880, Sennheiser HD595

Preferred Music - Rock and some electronic.

u/Dang_Yankee · 0 pointsr/headphones

A DAC/AMP might help and it will increase the number of potential upgrades in the future by opening up the possibility of owning higher impedance headphones, but the improvement probably won't be as large as buying a new set of headphones. Despite what some here will say, not all gaming headsets are bad, they just tend to be overpriced for what they offer.

The M50x is probably not good for gaming. It has a very compact soundstage and I think you'd find it's pretty unpopular around here. (though there are some who still like it) If you're interested in a closed-back headphone for gaming in that price range, look at the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (80 ohm) - though you'd probably want an amp to get the most out of that too.
