Denon AH-D320 urban raver. Please note I have never really been interested in headphones as I have a great Klipsch home theater setup. I purchased these for my partner so she could watch her whatever it is on her phone while I watched my setup. I had to know what they sounded like and was pleasantly surprised, nowhere near as bad as I had thought. Good bass (may or may not be your thing) excellent for my music and youtube. $100 NZ they were the cheapest higher priced headphones I found.

I just added a pair of Grado SR60i's to my collection. To anyone considering spending $30 - $40 for a pair of plastic throwaway's that won't last 3 months, it is definitely worth stretching your budget out to $60 for these Grado's. They aren't technically as good as my HD 800's, but they sound terrific and I enjoy them very much.

Seriously. I like them better than any headphone I have heard under $250. I plug them into my iPad and stream Spotify with them - I could be perfectly happy with this as my only headphone rig.

I actually use the beats by dre studio headphones even when filming. It keeps all sound out and I can hear crisply and saves me time on editing because we can tune during filming. Definitely a stellar set, you can see our work at www.lavalandproductions.com we do video editing and recording. Honestly I remember when casio had good quality headphones.

Sorry, I can't. There's some kind of bug in your website that says 'VLC Web Plugin needs permission to run' and when I grant that permission I get a blank VLC window.

Grado SR80 - balanced bass, light and comfortable, great and deserved reputation.

Turtle Beach XP400, wireless Dolby 5.1 surround - not super comfortable, so-so fidelity, but good surround effects.

PX 100 II !!! Portables, open cans, lovely Bass! I stayed away and stuck with Koss for a long time because I was weary of the so called "Sennheiser veil" with rolled off treble, but I love these!! Makes me curious about their 5 series Open cans (even if they are a bit more neutral)

Definitely picking up the Sony V6s, so many reviews and ravings and they're relatively cheap.

I'll vote for Etymotic hf3 for noise cancelling, though they are not for everyone's taste as they are pretty flat... most would like them best with a decent bump in the lower frequencies... sound isolation is fantastic though, and passive to boot...

Over the ear, i love the Grado SR 60's and 80's for great budget/bang for the buck options...


On another note, headphones are tough to recommend since everyone has a different taste in what sound they like... Not to mention budget ranges are pretty important too...

I kinda like my AKG K495's but I've found myself using my Denon AH-D7100's a bit more lately. It definitely brings a more comfortable fit when on the go or if I'm just laying in my bed listening to vinyls. The sound quality is superb.

Sennheiser HD800. The LCD-3 is a close runner up with superior bass and more involvement in some rock/pop tracks, but loses in the good-at-everything-including-imaging stakes to the HD800.

I don't own the Stax SR-009 or the long defunct Sennheiser HE-90 (Orpheus) but both of those have been the best headphones I've listened to (on separate occasions sadly, so I can't compare them to each other directly), and better than the best of the two I own listed above.

NAD VISO & ifi micro iCan

I have not done much critical listening headphones. Last week my Sennheiser cx6 ear buds bit the dust. I was using them to listen to my FLAC files played through JRiver on my laptop. SQ was pretty good and everything was fine, I felt no need to change. Now the plot thickens, wanting to use my HRT Music Streamer HD with some headphones, I bought the NAD VISO headphones & the ifi iCan headphone amplifier. I am very pleased with the SQ of the setup. The headphones are very light, comfortable, seal outside sound rather well. I can wear them all day. The sound is true & natural to me anyway. One neat thing is you have the option to plug the cable into either ear (cable could be longer though). They are definitely worth a look, IMO.
I know this is headphone thread so all i'll say about the ifi iCan headphone amp is WOW!

Favorite Headphones??

Sennheiser.....

For iPod/iPhone -- Sennheiser HD-205/HD-205II (but looking into getting a Headphone Amplifier to use with the iPhone 5S (my current Player) and my Sennheiser HD-205II), but looking into getting Bose Headphones or Beats Audio Headphones instead (Less Than $50.00).

For Home System -- Sennheiser HD-600 ($400.00 to $450.00).

For Home Theater -- Sennheiser HD-580 ($200.00 back in 2000).

--Charles--

Samsung PN42C450; Xfinity X1; Pioneer BDP-51FD; Harman/Kardon AVR-3600; Sennheiser HD-600; Panamax MR4000

Sony's MDR-1R, which replaced a half dozen other cans I used to love. Now I only have one pair of daily cans in my life.
