Headphones (Not for gaming).

#1CammyApplePosted 8/25/2013 11:18:27 AM
I'm in the market for a pair of headphones that would serve primarily for music. They may be used for movies in a bind. Something that would also be suitable for travel on foot. Nothing in ear. Over or on ear is acceptable.

Not looking for anything in the Beats/Soul/SkullCandy realm. I mean if what I end up with looks nice that's fine, but it's far from the point.

I'm not sure if I prefer an angled connector or not so that's not really an issue. I do prefer the faux leather when it comes to over the ear.

Suggestions?

Panasonic RP-HTX7 should be good and affordable.

What sort of sound do you like from it?
Budget?

Those actually look pretty darn spiffy too. They appear to be over the ear, is that correct?

How are the Koss PortaPros? They look interesting. Remind me of the Walkman days haha.

All sorts of music. Seriously, no exclusions.
I like being able to hear the music without one aspect over powering the others. You know how some prefer nothing but bass? That's not me.
Budget is undecided at the moment, entertaining all suggestions. I mean if I was looking to just go crazy I would invest in some custom IEMs.

That is correct.

Koss PortaPros? Not a bad choice at all. Might lack a little bass and kick drum though.

The cord is also somewhat short.

Check out KRK's offerings. I love their studio monitors and the headphones they design are monitors as well, meaning they have a very flat response across the spectrum of sound frequencies which will give you a very accurate sound.

I personally own the speakers but not the headphones, but I've heard great things about both. The 8400 are around $140 while the 6400 are $90 give or take, but people tend to say the extra $50 is worth it. The removable cord and tasteful style are a bonus

I forgot to mention that a detachable cord is a big plus but not a deal breaker if not included. They look interesting. Will have to do some more research on them.

The guys over at head-fi know their headphones better than anyone, so reposting this topic over there would be ideal. Here is one review from those guys. They are very critical and thorough so I'm sure this will help:
