  • What headphones for TD-11 ?

    I would have liked to point you towards our 'Once and for all - Headphones' -sticky in the 'Products' subforum! ...But somehow that thread went AWOL....

    Sorry...

      Find a music shop that will let you audition the headphones to find a pair you like. I use the AKG 171 MKII model for practising and rehearsals. I use Shure SE 535 in ears for playing gigs, as they don't get as sweaty etc. I really dig the bass response of the AKGs and when i first put my in ears in, i miss the nice bass response.


      Roland TD-30KV, Pearl Demon Drive Double Pedal, Pearl H1000 hit hat stand, Shure SE530 IEMs, AKG K171 MKII Headphones, Mackie DLM PA, Yamaha MG102C mixer, Roland Studio Capture

              sorry i didn't understand that part (my english is poor)
              Do you mean that you miss AKGs bass when using Shure?

                Yes, the bass response of the AKG171 is more to my liking than the Shure SE 535. The Shures are still very nice though, the bass just isn't as 'boomy'

                best selling studio headphones on amazon and even here on the forum many people seem to use them... but there is still one thing i cannot understand: "how is the bass of these headphones? Do they fatigue the ear after long playing?"

                    Yea, I had some of Bose's first endeavor into the headphone world. Wasn't happy with those. They've gotten a LOT better.

                  I love the comfortable feel of my AKG K-1000.
                  They are not designed specifically as 'drumming headphones', they're not even called 'headphones' in fact, but instead they are so-called 'binaural speakers' - similar in construction to the legendary 'Stax' products.

                    I wore out my ATHs - the ear covering perished and the cost of replacements was outrageous. Currently using Ultrasone HFI-580s and I'm loving them. Heaps of bass with a good balance of mids and highs. They're also very comfortable.

                      i'm getting interested in the Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro 80 ohm, since many claim they have good bass while still keeping a studio quality sound over all.
                      But one thing i can't understand is: "Do I need a headphone amp to fully enjoy such an expensive headphone on my TD-11?"

                        NO, the 80 ohm version works well with module output levels. The other model is designed for amps with more grunt.

                        If I did understand the ol' "ohm's law" correctly, less Ohms means 'Louder!'

                      Hairmetal i understood the same thing.
                      Also i just lost interest in the DT 770 PRO 80 Ohm after reading that their volume is very low when used with the TD-11. (http://www.vdrums.com/forum/forum/ge...-my-headphones
