    For all you degenerates asking what headphones to buy.

    Here's a quick guide for you saps.

    Brands to look for:
    Sennheiser - Great sound, great look, great build quality.
    V-Moda - Great sound, tons of bass, built like a tank.
    Grado - Good sound, rustic look, good build quality.
    Audio-Technica - Amazing sound, fantastic build quality.
    AKG - Incredible sound, great build quality.

    Brands to stay away from:
    Beats by Dre - Sub-par sound (Badly repressed mids, over-driven lows and highs), very cheap build quality, hellishly over-priced.
    Soul by Ludacris - Strikingly similar to Beats.
    Skullcandy - Low-quality sound, weak drivers, cheap build-quality.

    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inl้,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Also recommend Ultrasone for DJ headphones, I know a lot of people on MPGH think they're DJs.

    Always thought that Beats was good. My whole life is a lie.

    What made you think they were good. It astounds me that people by $100+ products based off face value. A 1 minute Google search would've provided countless reviews, forums and objective testing showing the poor performance of the Beats range. Every single model off that line-up can be beaten at similar or lower price points. Same goes for Souls, Skullcandy, and pretty much anything else swag faggots endorse (no offence to real faggots).

    When I went to buy headphones for dj-ing a couple of years ago I tried on about 20-30 different ones.
    Saw AKG and just thought it'd be a shitty, bad quality Chinese brand coming into the Audio scene....
    but then I tried them on and WOAHLY SHIET! by far the best Headphones I've ever used. (Ended up getting Pioneer HDJ500's because of the price)
    I don't own them since I have KRK 8400's but they'd definitely be at the top of my headphones list!

    My Q701's are one of the best things I've ever bought. Definitely a fan of AKG, although their lower priced headphones don't have the same quality that Audio-Technica and V-Moda have, but they're still great.

    The green ones right? I remember seeing a picture haha, look comfy as!
    Have to also think about how comfy they'll be when you're buying headphones. I can wear my KRK's for hours and forget they're there since the cushions
    are squidgy.
    Your's look like they'd be wearable for a long period of time aswell since the cups look huge and the fur
    So sleek

    Yea... I mentioned the same thing in another thread. $100 products are usually beaten by lower price products in almost every aspect.

    I am very proud of my V-MODA-s.. they are indeed awesome and built like a tank.

    But I also like my 2 pairs of beats.. I am an incurable basshead.
