"stylish" Headphones?

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if the audiophile guys can recommend a pair of headphones for the office that look different than the usual fare and preform well? Looked at the panasonic rphx7 But im concerned these may be on the low end of sound quality due to price. Anything in the 100$ give or take range? these koss pro3aa's look pretty solid and got great reviews on cnet. eskuche Havent heard of these guys, any experiences? these aiaiai's look very unique, and cnet had a good review. It doesnt seem like they would isolate the sound much however. What are features I should look for when making my decision? Thanks, E

I like the retro style of Grado headphones. http://www.gradolabs.com/frameset_main.htm

The sound of Grado is good. Most people rate them as some of the best. But I never felt comfortable wearing mine so I gave them away.

I just got a pair of 225s which are sublime. Nice detail but very musical. A nice upgrade from my Grado 125s. Many consider them to be the sweetspot in the line. Comfort is an issue for some but the bowls fit my ears fine. I am comfy even on long recording sessions. The RS-1 are some of the best headphones. The very best is probably Stax Omega which I listen to at hifi shows a lot.

I've found that having one of these thingies helps me wear phones for a longer period of time.

You can buy one of those is a very comfy lambskin for the Grado line:

Nice! Always eyed a pair of Grados but was concerned about comfort.

Are these for home or mobile use?

You need closed headphones then. They will block outside noise, and won't emit as much ambient sound.

I LOVE my Beyer 770 Pros.

I have learned that upgrading the cable can be very worthwhile. My recording buddy has some Senns with the Cardas cable upgrade and that makes a noticeable difference over the stock cord. Also, not all iPods sound the same.

You show a lack of experience if you think better cables don't matter on cans.

I'm too sure If they don't matter on speakers (they don't, BTW), they won't matter on headphones either.
