Which headphones do you use

Postby Krouch » 14 Nov 2016, 22:32

Hey togehter,

My old Sennheiser HD201 headphones are EOL :-(. Now I´m searching for new headphones for using at my Nord Stage 2 ex and my Yamaha Clavinova. The shouln´t be more expensive than 100€.
Has someone a tip? Which headphones do you use?

Regards,
Thomas

ATH-M50
Nice price (today 155:- EUR @ Thomann.de). Good sound, even for piano ...

HD598 only at home because they're open. Nord sounds amazing through it and they are very comfortable.

Sennheiser HD280 is my favorite "reference" headphone in the ~$100 range (so a bit below your 100 GBP budget). This changes if you want open-back, although there aren't as many good open-back options in that price range.

One thing I found out. Don't try and use bluetooth headphones. The delay is quite annoying while playing.
Keyboards:
  • NS2 EX Compact 73
  • Hammond SK2
  • Korg Triton Extreme 61
  • Roland VCombo VR-09
  • Roland A-300
  • Alesis VI61

Indeed wireless consumer gear (bluetooth) is not advisable for serious music making.
