wat headphone would you recommend for using wif computer sound card for watching movie????
best if can lay down wif the headphones On my head.....
If want to lay down on bed, i think only small ones like PX100 Portapro/Sportapro etc can.

If want something better, try a Senn HD485 or HD555/595. 485 got enough bass slam for movies. 555/595 got less bass but its soundstage is better and got more details. All 3 will work quite well with a PC sound card.

HD205 should be good as well but I never tried them before. They're larger than PX100 but smaller than HD485/555/595

Price guide:

Budget?

ES5 is good but its closed back type. Might not sound spacious enough for movies. AD300 not too bad but can be a little bass light. I tested before but i forgot which model. AD300 or AD500. You can try them at Stereo.

Try to up your budget and go for a 485 if possible. But not good for bed. Too big.

Hmm....I dun own the PMX version but common sense will tell you that you cannot use it while in bed la. Its fit will be different too so as such, it might sound different to a PX.

Bluetooth, no idea man. As of now, no major headphone manufacturer took the plunge yet. Maybe Senn will have one day. But why want bluetooth? Home use rite? Wired ones will be fine. Or try those wireless RF ones.

Thumbs up Cresyn earphones

Hi, for those who do not have an idea on where to get Cresyn earphones, you can get ur cresyn through the following auctions or go www.mpxgroup.com:. These do offer good value for money.

Hey there Eter99, I don't wish to burst your bubbles but this thread is about headphones. I doubt people would be interested in that Cresyn stuff. You could post it in the earphones section but comeon, I wouldn't even give it a look if I'am seraching for headphones and there you are posting this Cresyn stuff here. I don't know if this infringes the forum rules but I'll suggest you not to spam this stuff all over other people's posts and threads as well.

Hi fevernova,

Cresyn do offer headphones too. I am not sure if you know this, but its one of the top companies in the sound industry in South Korea. By the way, I am only offering an introduction to Cresyn, and helping those who need assistance on where to buy. If not, I can take out the post. I do not need to spam and I dont post into every thread, only those tat are related to earphone/headphone, if u look at my postings. Its much the same way as those retailers (who use nicknames) who post their comments on where to buy certain things. Thanks

Ok, maybe I sounded rude then. I'll apologise for that...But I see that you posted the same thing in a few different threads. If you want to do that, maybe you could start a thread of your own. Or post a everything you need to know about cresyn thread. And yes I do know that Cresyn offers headphones...
