KRK 8400 headphones
« on: May 21, 2013, 01:58:14 PM »
I just got these wonderful new headphones:

They sit very comfortably on the head and the sound is really good (amazing) for at pair of closed back headphones, which also provides a good deal of isolation.

These look great.  I like KRK's 'patter'..."Headphones for educated ears" (Ha-ha).

Let's face it, the closer the sound is to our ears, the better placed we are to not loosing data absorbed by surroundings and the avoidance of standing waves and the likes, is increased.  Would you agree with Stephan Marsh when he says, "these are like monitors that you strap onto your head" ?  Are they the best headphones you've had Jansberg?

I have a pair of Sennheiser HD500 and a a pair of AKG K-240.

I like the KRK 8400 the best for their sound and attenuation of noise..

I bought some Audio-Technica ATH-M50s.  They came highly recommended on rec.audio.pro and the like.  I've not been disappointed.

Enjoy your KRKs.  :)
