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.
sony ericsson w series earphone, its quite nice so i dont have to buy another one
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.)
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.
I just got ER6i's for Christmas. They sound godly, and with the foamies, I can't even hear myself talking.
Audio-Technica ATH-EM700 SV. Me being a big Persona 3 fan, I had to buy them.
(The protagonist wears them in the game)
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.
A £5 gaming headset.
I grabbed some fluffy earmuff-styled headphones from Volcom for Winter. Toasty!
( ﾟ ヮﾟ) Earmuffs are like mittens for the ears!
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.
headset or headphones?
are logitec headphones just pieces of shit, or am i way too violent with my headphones? i broke my third or fourth pair a couple night ago.
first pair: ripped out the cord when it got stuck under my chair
second pair: mic stopped working when i put it in my mouth
Keep buying Logitech. Once you're done experimenting with electronics, buy a good pair.
>>25 Headphones, sorry.
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 don't know. these headsets are the first logitech products i havn't been satisfied with
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.
Koss Spark Plug
>>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.
SKULL CANDY: FULL MEATAL JACKETS
they are the best iv ever had
Bose Around-Ear (AE) Headphones...and Shure In-ear E2 earphones.
Sony MDR-V700DJ for out-on-the-town listening, and Grado SR-60 for home.
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.
But at home:
icemat siberia. Good for what I need.
ask me if i fucking like them?
i tell you i love them<3
Ultrasone HFI-580 user here!
Been considering getting another pair, not sure whether to go for Audio Technica's ATH-A700s or their ES7s.
I'm currently using a Skullcandy pair (The ones that come with a bottle opener).
DON'T. FUCKING. GET. SKULLCANDY.
COMES WITH A BOTTLE OPENER?
Woah, now THAT is marketing.
Recently got: ATH-Pro500 (silver)
beats my old generic-iPod headphones.
