Hi, I'm looking for White headphones. I will be using them for music and gaming.
I used google to look at images of white headphone and saw a few that I like but don't know if they are any good.
1.) Pioneer HDJ-2000 and 1500 headphones
2.) AKG K 701 WHITE HEADPHONES
3.) Reloop - Rh-3500 Pro White

Are there any other good looking White headphones u would suggest? How are the 4 that I picked out?
I already have Sony MDR-XB500. Not looking for base headphones. Want something for all around music.

The main problems with white-colored products are the tendency for them to turn yellow, and being very hard to keep them from getting dirty. As white-colored products are usually tied to Apple stuff, they also tend to get higher markups than other colors.

Sound quality and comfort are arguably a lot more important on a pair of headphones than the entire product lathered in colors of white, but who am I to argue...

I prefer the product colors between shades of 25%-gray and 90%-black, and also prefer matte over glossy (glossy is less forgiving of fingerprints generally). Came across a glossy version of the Logitech mx Anywhere mouse at the big-box yellow-tag store today - it looked positively awful versus the matte-gray one I have atm.

just like vancouver!


but seriously, wash your hair. Yellow on things comes from oil in your scalp/skin. If you wash your hair daily with shampoo, it shouldn't be too big of an issue.



and also here are the absolute best headphones ever:

Another choice is the AKG K430. They are mini on-ear with some decent sound from them.

I use a FiiO E17+ E09K DAC/Amp combo. Good for my needs, although I'm planning on upgrading to Schitts some time.

I have the Fiio E17 with the E09K dock. The E17 has just enough power for the Q701's but the dock seems to bring them to life even more. They really do love power .. and like to be played loud :D

Not familiar with the E07K (Didn't even know it existed until today), the E7 was a very popular unit so i am sure it would be okay. Best to check on site like head-fi.org .

If it is going to be tethered to a PC all the time and require a DAC, something like a Audioengine D1 would work great from what I have read. Past that you can get into things like Schiit bifrost+amp or a Matrix m-stage usb etc
