Wich headphones

Post by ta7 » Sat Apr 08, 2017 12:26 pm

Hi there. I got shures se215 and love them so much. Very crisp sound. But my ears do not respont to the in ears. They start after some minutes to hurt.
Does anybody know a alternative closed mobile headphone for about 70€ that sounding near like the se215?

Thanks alot.
Tomas

iirc I once tested this model, very (!) precise and certainly a great live monitor with focus on essentiel frequencies.
But no way to be used in the full range domain, mixing etc.
If you're looking for an 'extend' version with a similiar mid pronounciation it may become expensive. I have no idea for a proper substitute...
(using Sennheiser IE4 myself which sound nice, but lack the clearity you mention - and are a hell of cable movement sound)
The latter is a feature that may easily slip through while first testing but becomes a permanent annoyment later.

cheers, Tom

Hi Astroman. Thanks for your answer.
My English is not the best. What i mean is, i want a closed headphone for listening music. Not for mixing or monitoring. So i am looking for a headphone not in ear wich got a similar sound like the se215.
A one wich comes near is the Marshall majorII.

You could go with a Sennheiser HD 200 PRO, that would be more and less an equivalent of what you want, they are very nice for many reasons, which are long to explain here. This is a serious contender, no matter what you want or need in this price. You can get them blind.

sorry for misunderstanding...
I swear on old AKG K501, 601,701 which I usually buy 2nd hand and replace the earpads
(the parts have identical size and connectors, I prefer 601 pads)
These parts are quite expensive, but you get a very decent piece of gear that way for about 1/3 of the original price.
K501 and 601 are always 'classic', but with 701 they had a 2nd series that got extra bass to make it more pleasing to a more beat oriented audience instead of the hifi enthusiasts.

cheers, Tom

The Sennheiser HD 280 Pro would be better for mixing because they are flat.

The best closed headphones I've ever used are Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro. They are for drummers to hear while recording. You won't hear much else in your surroundings while you are using them and also people won't hear too much of your music either while you are using them. I also have the consumer hi fi 600 ohm version (Beyerdynamic DT-770) which I use most of the time now. They have been discontinued so they might be hard to find. They're about the same as the pro version but more comfortable to wear.

I am also a Beyerdynamics believer - I used AKG 702 for years, but then I tried the Beyerdynamics, lusted for them for a while. Now I have 2 pairs, one for the homestudio and a pair for work. I can wear them all day long without problems.

+1 for the Sony MDR-7506's. They're classics. I've had a few sets over the years.

The Sony MDR-7506 sounds very crispy and agressive to me, but it is used as a standard, like NS10.
I'm using a shure SRH840, the sound is very smooth and well balanced, but not punchyas the Sennheiser HD25 that my drummer is using . the SRH840 is much more well balanced but less closed thean HD25.
