ceero:Okay guys, i could use a bit of advice from you I finally decided it's time for a new headphones. My budget is 200-250 EUR.
Currently i am thinking about two classics - AKG K701 and Sennheiser HD25. I owned both brands, AKG and Senneheiser in the past and i was satisfied with both. I can get the K701 for circa 220 EUR and the HD25 for circa 160 EUR but the price is not that much of a deciding factor. Bowers & Wilkins P3 or P5 also catched my attention.
I am quite hard on the audio quality actually, the problem is that i am going to use them as much on metal/rock/instrumental music as much as for hardstyle/electronic music and well, you usually get different kinds of headphones for those if you go for high end. Naturally as a hardstyle lover i want strong, clean bass, i odn't even mind a slight over-bass setting in headphones.
What am i looking for is headphones for everyday use - listening at home, listening outside on the street, in a bus etc, not djing. I expect the headphones to have a good isolation, inside and outside aswell. The deciding factor for me is the manufacturing quality, i fucking had it with headphones that break down / fuck up after a year of using, i want to put a bunch of money in them and i expect them to last, happend to me before that i bought expensive headphones and now i got a bunch of plastic scrap from them.
So what do you say? HD25? K701? P5? Or something else? Any advice welcome, especially if some of you guys own any of those headphones
k701 all the way
