What headphones do you use? (53)

I'm using the Sennheiser HD-555.

The buds that came with my discman ten years ago.

more like 1/2 a "headphones", one side's busted (I can see the wires), but I'm too cheap to buy another set at the moment. They were crap anyway tho.

Grado SR-60s. They sound great.

Before that I was using a pair of Sennheiser HD-280 Pros, which cost like three times the price, but I don't think sounded much better. It's not a fair comparison though, because they were so uncomfortable and fever-inducing, I couldn't really evaluate the sound quality. (Also I wasn't using an amp, but I've never met anyone who uses a headphone amp and isn't a total geek, so I think that's something I want to steer clear of.)

Audio-technica ATH-FC7

Good sound, the bass is tweaked just a little, which is how I like it, and they are headphones, not buds (can't stand those little suckers). They come with a detachable extension lead (in case you have a remote), and they fold up nicely.

Just got myself some AKG K240s and I love 'em :3

Previously I was using a pair of Stanton XXIs which probably went out of production in 1983. They still work fine but compared to the AKGs the bass is really lacking. Either that or the AKGs have too much bass :D

Grados are comfortable for you guys? I've had the SR80s for about a year, the stock pads of which have caused recurring sores on my outer ears all the while. I've learned to endure the pain and have kept them in the hope of developing calluses, but it hasn't happened yet.

Sennheiser HD 595, the OP's big brother I believe.

I have them on all day and forget I'm wearing them.

I have a pair of Grado SR-80s, with a different pair of pads. The stock ones are god-awful - Look into getting a pair of replacement pads for a Senn HD-414. (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/116351-REG/Sennheiser_H19545_H_19545_Ear_Cushions.html)

Man. I can't stand having those HD-280s on my head, they really do make me hot and sore after just a few minutes. The SR-60s are maybe not the most comfortable headphones in the world (I guess?), but I feel fine after using them for like two hours straight. So far better in my experience. Your mileage clearly varies, though.

I bit the bullet last month and got a pair of Stax sr-007 omega IIs. They are amazing.

this is actually a headset for gaming, but the sound is crystal clear and the "filtration" of other sounds is perfect as well.

Sennheisers are meant to be bloody good. Bit expensive though, but I have my eyes on them in the future.

yeahm HD-280s make my head sore as well... so I end up hardly ever using them, and when I do not for too long.

Bumping for the sake of not making another thread, if you could buy any headset, what would it be? Thanks to Uncle Sam I'm sitting on some extra cash and I want to get a nice pair of headphones for myself but I don't really know what to look for.

Keep buying Logitech. Once you're done experimenting with electronics, buy a good pair.

And I'm guessing no to logitech?

I'm about to buy some Sennheiser RS 130. Apparently they have a very good sound output, nice bass rendition, and they're wireless.
They're priced around 99€.

Logitech products are the typical poor, "Made in China" quality. You should have realised the moment the second one broke.

I have a pair of the RS140's--I dunno if it's worth it to spring the extra cash for my model, they were a gift--but they are great, comfortable and good sound.

>>29 here. I finally bought the headphones I was talking about. And seriously, they're worth the cost. The sound is indeed good, they are very comfortable (you can almost forget you have them on) . The wireless thing is tremendously useful, I even used them as 'speakers' in another room.

Are they FM or infrared? FM is hissy and IR requires line of sight.

FM. Very few noise, seriously, even a few walls away from the base. The only interferences are due to the high concentration of electronics and other wireless devices in my room, and they are quite rare and barely noticeable.

THE PERFECT COMBO.

SR-60s for home listening, like >>40. For outdoors, I just stick to my iPod earbuds. I would say they're "good enough," although I would like to sometime invest in a pair of those Sony earbuds. I used to have a pair before a friend lost the only pads that fit me (don't ask me how!).

Well, for outdoors I don't really care, just ones that are reliable and in the reasonable price...currently I use Sony.
