What headphones do you use? - Page 3

post #31 of 121
Sony MDR-V6

The most widely used headphones by sound studios/ recording studios. Very popular for a reason, because for under $100 you get some good ass quality sound.

Edit: i'm not 100% if these really are the most widely used, but a few people have said that. I do know for a fact that most artists use these in their studios to record songs, and when movie studios use headphones during sound production or recording I often see them using these headphones.

Sure SE535 and ER4p (Etymotic Research)

I don't have any actual hands-on experience, unfortunately. This is just based on what I've read online and through various reviews and such.

I have a pair of audio technica esw9s for proper listening and a fake pair for the gym

They really grew on me. I didn't like them at first.

I thought they were a little small at first. I find them pretty comfortable now although after several hours my glasses start to dig in

Grado SR60's for anything acoustic ( ~ $60 ) - These are amazing for guitar and piano, but are a little light on the bass. Not that comfy or well built.

Audiotechnica ATH-M50's for anything electronic / bass heavy (~ $120 ) - Super durable headphones. Mids are lacking though, and are kind of fatiguing. Kind of a guilty pleasure headphone.

MEElectronics M9 headphones while on the move ( ~ $15 ) - Nice sealing headphones with good highs and bass. Mids are completely lacking though - not a big fan of these.

Favorite headphones I've listened to are the AKG K 701's.

Not a fan of Sennheiser at all. (Have listened to the 555, 595, 650, and 800)

I'm extremely close to buying these cans. I just need to find a good price and I'm there.

Definitely listen to them before you do. They were given to me as a gift, and while I enjoy them, I don't think I would have spent my own money on them.

Highs can be piercing, mids are very recessed, etc. The closed style of headphone is never as clean as an open one.

Don't get me wrong - in their price range I think they are a relatively good deal, but they just aren't quite for me.

Seven years ago I got the Sennheiser HD595s and last year scooped a pair of German Maestro GMP 8.35 D Monitor

Just bought a pair of Bose QC 15s. I'm living in a fraternity house next year and it's going to be useful. In rotation with my iPhone headset & my Shure SE530PTHs.

Might have to invest in a good pair of open cans, but not until I have my own (quiet) place.

I use the Bose in-ears. I'm not huge on Bose generally, but I like these headphones.

I like Bose, and as long as you accept that they are only going to be a 7/10 for sound quality you end up with great ANR in the case of the Aviation and QC range, and amazing function/inch of speaker with the home cinema kits. Let audiophiles scoff, but Bose make some good shit for very specific purposes.
