Best 5 headphones between $350-$500 - The Great Studio Headphone Comparison Test
3 men, 5 studio headphones, 6 ears and one single question posed to each of them: which headphone would you buy in the price range of $350 to $500 ?
JimboSpins's review"Loud and hurt my ears"
The frequency response is 10Hz-39.8 kHz and the impedance is 62 ohms. These open back dynamic headphones cost a lot and they are pretty light.
I have used the K 701, and K 271 MKII from AKG. All 3 are great but I prefer the MKII’s because of how comfortable they are and plus they are cheaper than the 701’s and the 702’s. The 701’s were around before this pair was and the crazy thing is that they are both the exact same price. The specs are virtually the same and the only difference I could distinguish between the two is the color.
The sound of the AKG K 702 headphones is very clean and crisp but after wearing these for about a hour and listening to music with them I would get a headache because I felt like the highs where very harsh in these headphones. It was almost unbearable after about an hour I hated the way they sounded in my ears. I have used many AKG headphones and none of them made me feel like that so the 702’s just are not for me. I do not recommend these; I would suggest getting the MKII’s if you want a great sound and comfort.

ZeroPoint's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super helmet"
I use it for all my computer and then stereo.
It is very comfortable and ears breathe, not like headphones fermées.Tu can discuss that with any one while listening to music.
I keep my head about 2 hours and the semeine double the weekend and I think I can say that it is top and does not tire the brain = 0).
It is strong enough and has the detachable cable right side gauche.Niveau performance for the price this is the best I think.
The audio quality is very balanced which is good for mix.L image stereo is removed and can be distinguished very well for example a guitar that is 30% right and the other (solo for example) is 10% towards your side gauche.Des bass is therefore neutral for lovers bim bam boom big I recommend.

lcarre10's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A very nice product"
What I love most: the overall sound quality
What I like the moions: weight after one hour of listening.
value for money: very correct: 200 € used.
I would do without this choice problem.
I use the headset especially for playing the keyboard and so far very little to listen to music on my stereo equipment.
The coating is nice but I personally find a bit heavy and tiring after an hour of this game is probably normal you tell me .... but for now I have no other option because no monitors.
Headphone minijack and solid.
Very good quality and sound insulation écout even if I do not have elements compared with another device. Very good overall balance, especially in the midrange and treble, a little less in serious but it does not interfere with listening. The stereo image is accurately reproduced.

it is perfect for mixing, mastering and adjusting instrument.
normal if it is for one, it is for two to see three.
people who complain about the lack of bass are made of people get too involved in unconventional sounds.
it n 'there's listen to the songs of blues blackfoot "every man should know" live.
This song is based on bass, on any chain this piece will make a superb low and when you are listening on the headset, you realize that the bass is set to the millimeter. it is sufficient to adjust the bass on this song if you want a good low fat.
or do the same with another song, this is not a disability, because this headphone is not made for listening, but for mixing and mastering.
stand the effects of manner not to put too much or not enough.
same for the space, I think the record is superb and can tweak its settings on the sides.
it is expensive without being expensive, everything is relative, you want to be good, or you want to shit.

al171717's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" great helmet"
I've had 3 months
What is so special that you like most and least?
I'm a fan of his extremely loyal restitution can I love a least its lack of bass and sub bass. This is very minimal ... I manage to agree on a number of music
Did you try many other models before buying it?
I have not had the opportunity yet I spent whole days to go testing and customer reviews on this headphone as well as competing brands for a headphone of this type.
How do you rate the quality / price?
The report quality price seems very good
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, without hesitation. A great product that I think I would never part with it.
However I think this headphone would only do harm to another headphone cheapest 100euros without a good dac and a dedicated headphone amp, I listened for a few weeks on the output jack of a computer and I don ' have not taken advantage of this excellent headphone compared to now ...
PS I listen to all my music in flac!

waxxmaster's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A headphone extremely accurate"
I shared a test "hot", because I just got this headphone, and I must say I am amazed.
Did you tried many other models before buying it?
In regular use only headphones Sony MDR-7506 closed that fits not quite in the same range of use, I will keep for decision (since the AKG is an open headphone), and it is flattering to the Mediums This is not the case at all of the "AKG (good for corrections / mix master, a little less pleasant for the composition, the AKG lack of heat on this point of view.)
What is so special that you love the most, least?
This is a very good headphone for the use intended for it >> corrections mix & master.
Indeed the details and errors mixes "jump to the ears" immediately, he is ruthless on this point of view, I say I was surprised because such corrections EQ suddenly became easier and the mixture of the instruments.
Once the instruments in frequency ranges intermingle too close, it is there to remind us that a good shot of EQ is to remember. I mean, unlike my monitors (Mackie HR824 mk2) and my old headphones (Sony MDR-7506) where it saturates quickly or it will not, and that's good, you come out with a very clean mix .
The sound is neutral and close to the monitors, thereby not having to return on both X & co EQ ... it's very nice.
It is not tiring to wear, or listen to (unlike the Sony which is very tiring and projecting in the treble / midrange). The atria may be a little much, but it is comfortable and is quickly forgotten.
The bass is like you may have read elsewhere a little behind, however accurate. I think it helps a lot also makes it less tiring than other headphones. I would advise against anyway for fans of electro music made on very low for the components (for mixing things will go)
Level of manufacturing quality, we vera with time but it's pretty perfect on that side obviously it looks to be solid. The two elements that tire generally over time (atria and cable) are apparently available separately.
How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice?
Certainly for home-studiste it's always a bit wrong to put that price in a headphone, but for the most demanding one is not disappointed with the result, it's worth it! And this choice I would do without hesitation. Audiofanzine thank you for your test headphones that allowed me, finally, to choose a headphone almost perfect!

Modesty23's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" GOOD headphone, BUT NEED RUNNING"
This headset is great, however, to make sounds with big bass (eg Dnb)
I did not really like, actually, made sound too perfect:-P
I am separated because in the end, nothing better the good old monitors for the product.

AlexJansen's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" surgical"
I find this headset just perfect. My mixes made with sound then easily on all media (channels, radio ...), it's a headphone analytic surgery.
The only small negative point: the leather under the arch is a little difficult at first, but using it softens and becomes more comfortable. They also say that this headset requires a few hours break-in (100/200) so that it delivers all it has in the belly I personally did not notice any difference between when I tested for the first time and now (although it must have 400/500 hours).
If I break it, I buy the same.

solo84's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very nice listen, but lack of heat"
Listening: Printing clarity, space ... The highs are very present, accurate, flattering, or even over-represented ... The mids are very clear but not really present, not really penetrating. The bass went where?? We hear them, it goes down very low but they are really missing attendance seating ...
Finally a headphone precise, clear, bright but the scene is a bit far, a little abstract, lacking a little presence ...
I set the bar a little high, but for the mix / monitoring: it remains a good high end headphones! But I keep my Beyer DT-880 Pro!
Bases of comparison: Beyer DT-880 DT-770, Senn HD-650, AKG K-240M
