Good Headphones for Music?

Hi guys,


I was looking for a good pair of headphones for just listening to music, I was looking at the shure SRH440 and I'm just not sure if this is the right choice. So what do you guys recommend for just listening to music?

greetings from Holland

I had a choice between the SRH440 and the ATH-M50 and went with the ATH's. I've had them for the last few weeks and they are simply amazing. Would highly recommend.

Around that price range I'd say HD 518, HD 558 or ATH-M50 if you can afford those. SRH440 are also good choice for the price (I use those) but I wouldn't buy them without trying them out first. They may not fit your ears, they may have not enough bass for you or just sound lifeless. Those are entry level studio monitors after all. 

These are generally know to be "fun" sounding.


If you want something more bassy.


These are supposedly good, but I don't know too much about them since they are relatively new. You can find reviews online (check


If you want something accurate sounding.


Something more neutral sounding.


Another accurate sounding set.


If you want to know any more about how any of those cans sound, look up reviews on head-fi. They are pretty good reviews, in general.

Post above me's pretty accurate, i'd say the takstar isnt really neutral tho.(and they are 22gbp on amazon uk) they're damn good. 


Another recommendation;check your local craigslist or whatever you've got in holland - i managed to get myself brand new k550s for like 100 euros.
