No, they are for for me sitting quietly making electronic music!! The problem is that I bought a pair of shure 840 headphones at this store and I had to return them because they severely lacked some low end depth. The kicker is that I only get a store credit, and one of the only pairs of cans they have, that I think would suit me, are the senn hd280.
-The beyer 770 are way too bassy.
-The sony mdr 7506/7509/shure 440 will destroy my ears with their highs.
-All the AKG's I tried have very little low end (I can't hear the lower spectrum of most of my tunes with them!!).
-The senn hd 650's are too expensive.....
-The ath m50's i own, but are being repaired.could be six weeks.
So the last standing man is the hd 280's. I just don't wanna get them and then come to realize I don't like them ,because they won't do a second return. I just could go listen to them myself, which i will, however i kinda made a bad judgement call on the shure's and so i wanted to get some opinions before i buy the senn's this time.
