What headphones would you recommend in the $100-$200 range.
This is for use at home, mostly guitar, vocal, synthesizers, piano.
Of course, for music listening.
Currently I have a crappy set of Koss headphones. (UR/29). I guess they're not bad for what they cost. I need an upgrade. I have two very small children and work at night.
Thanks for the recommendations.
spend a little extra dough and get a pair of grados (125's or higher), ultrasones, or sennheiser 600'ss or 650's. don't let people tell you that their 7506's "sound just fine" reference headphones they are not!
I apologize in advance for not telling you about $100 - $200 headsets.
If you can hold out, wait and save a bit longer it will be worth it.
(Just my opinion, and a strong one at that!)
The following are available in the studio here and I
have spent time with all of these.
Ultrasone PROline 750 around $400
Sennheiser HD650 around $450 - $500

When you look at the specs they really don’t tell you much.
Some specs do not state the +/- dB which tells you the spec mean s
Point being, please listen to anything you can get your hands on.
I think you will find that like me the differences between headsets
are UNBELIEVABLE. You cannot just use price or sales hype.
I prefer the Sennheiser HD650 or Ultrasone PROline 750 depending on
what I am doing. (When I first heard Ultrasones I did not care for them.
Must be a developed taste. Because these became one of my favorites.
