  • Favorite over-the-ear headphone?

    I have a nice little basement rehearsal space with Behringer P16 monitor stations for guitar players. The guitars go into Digitech or Line6 amp emulators so the whole band is quiet and everyone gets their own mix. Works great.

    The headphones I've been using have been the Direct Sound EX29 isolating headphones that I used back when I had an acoustic kit and they're excellent with loud, live drums in the room but now that all that acoustic low end has gone away with my transition to vdrums they sound pretty thin.

    I've tried a pair of Beats Pro since that brand overemphasises the low end but they're well overpriced for their actual quality.

    What make/model of headphones do you like? Are you getting a good bass kick without a muddy overall sound? Do they isolate from that non-musical click-click-tap-tap from the vdrums?

    Beherdynamic DT770. Comfy, bomb proof, great sound, decent price.

      Audio Technica ATH-M50 is a great choice too. But I prefer by far my 3 ways in ear monitor, they isolate all the poc poc sounds

        We just had a discussion of this on the Mimic FB page and drummers recommended: Beyerdynamic PT770, Sennheiser HD25 Plus, Audio Technica MX40 or 50. The general recommendation was for a closed back model (to block pad noise) and a flat response. That may not give you the sound you are looking for with a thumping bass but it will be more clear across the freq range.

          People are going to recommend what they personally use or like for THEM. Go try (or order & try) headphones for yourself. Pick what fits your flavor/build desire.

              My favorite over ear cans are the V-MODA Crossfade 2. Agree with Alan, though, there are so many options out there and it really is personal taste, once you pass a certain point of quality.

                I have the dt770 which are good but by the far the best I have ever had are the dt1770 which sound incredibly natural and do not distort with heavy bass drum sounds.

                  Sony WH-1000XM2 with active noise canceling. They’re Bluetooth but of course I use them with the audio cable for zero latency. Amazing, I can’t hear the sticks hitting the pads at all.

                    Another vote for the Audio Technica M50's. I bought those after my Sony 7506 set broke mechanically. Maybe I'm not as picky as I used to be, but the Audio Technica's sound just as good to me and are very comfortable.

                    Also, on a lark I bought a set of "Mpow 059" headphones from amazon. They are very cheap, and are not too shabby at all for a backup set - build quality is nice and they can do bluetooth as well.

                      Audio Technica ATH-M50x was the winner with Shure SHR840's as a close 2nd. Thanks for your suggestions everyone.
