    Looking for some new high-end cans and I'm having trouble choosing. Wondering if any of you lovelies have any recommendations! Here are the ones I'm looking at:

    1.) Pioneer HDJ 2000 (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/DJ/Headphones/HDJ-2000)

    2.) Technics RP-DH1250-S (http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/RP-DH1250-S)

    3.)Reloop RHP - 20 (http://www.reloop.com/reloop-rhp-20-knight)

    4.)Sennheiser Momentum (http://www.sennheiser.ca/live/senn/produit/en/2954/14)


    I'm pretty insensitive to the prices and my first priority is sound quality. I LOVE the style of the Sennheiser ones, but kind of wish they had the swivel. Hoping you some of you guys have these and can tell me what you like/don't like about them.

    Thanks!

    I had some Sennheisers long ago and loved them. Low end for Sennheiser and they sounded great.

    It depends on the music you listen to. Some headphones are better at low frequencies and some at high ones, but Sennheisers are always a good choice anyway. Also AKG, Denon or Bang and Olufsen if you are willing to spend more, but not Beats PLEASE!

    I hear each of them are good but I bought a pair of Beats.. I know it is the most promoted brand but I love the quality of them, I just have solo HDs and the quality is amazing. Just one complaint - when you are walking with them on, you kinda hear a thud in the headphones each time you walk from your heels.

    Anything but Beats. Sorry. I know they're the "it" cans these days. But if they were like $200 cheaper, they might be ok. I'd say no to Bose too. Pricey and overly processed sound. Might be good if you like bass heavy music though.

    Stick with Sennheiser, Audio Technica, and even the studio headphones from Sony and Pioneer.

    I hear Sennheiser is great.

    What I own, however are the Scosche RH1056M and I'm very happy with them. http://www.scosche.com/rh1056m-reference-headphones-white

    I really don't think it is possible to decide on cans without actually hearing them, though.

    sennheiser always puts out a good product.. i have two (earbuds and wireless over ears) and the sound is fantastic, strong his/mids, and heavy lows (could maybe be a tad heavier though!)

    Love my klipsch earbuds, good mix of high and low end sounds and great at canceling noise in the gym.

    Thanks for all the help, guys! If I can't find the Pioneer ones I think I'm going to get the Senheissers

    for compact collapsibles also I usually go with KOSS' "PortaPro" stereophones. the sound quality really is excellent for portable listening, volume range is excellent on modern devices and you get KOSS' "No Questions Asked" warranty
