Headphone choices
    #13869249 - 01/29/11 01:52 AM (9 years, 8 months ago)

I've been trying to find a pair of nice studio quality headphones, I've pretty much decided on Sennheiser's HD 380 PRO headphones, my problem is they are god damn expensive!($200 new) So my question to all you shroomerites is, first, is a refurbished pair worth $88 or is there a better option?

I just posted about these in another thread.



I used to swear by Sennheiser, but the construction and cord are so flimsy that I had to replace every year or two, even on the HD265.

Ultrasone Proline are far more solid with a fat-ass cord, mine have lasted five years with little wear. They also have better stay-put adjustment.

Better to invest $250 in a pair of these than by a new $100 pair every year.

I did try those at my local guitar center, they were nice, and they sounded great, but I decided against them because they sounded very loud to others in the room with me when I had the volume high, my goal was to be able to drift away into music land and my wife whose desk is right next to me won't be bothered, the sennheisers were great at isolating the music to the headphones only, and were hella comfy. I'm also very careful with my headphones (my stock ipod earbuds have lasted 5 years)

I decided to go for the pair listed on dakmart, on amazon dakmart only sells refurbs, so I contacted sennheiser to make sure dakmart was an authorized retailer, and they are, sennheiser also said refurbished gear has a 90 day warranty. I' kind of ok with that. I'll update when they arrive.

the sennheisers, it really was the obvious choice, how could I turn down $88 for a pair of $200 headphones?
