Thumbs up KRK 8400 Headphones

These things are just brilliantly crisp, and amazing for mixing. I am very very pleased with these. The screw off 1/4th inch to 1/8th inch plug is very nice plus they give you a LOT more cord than most other brands. KRK is my fav new brand. These are very comfortable and lightweight.

Have you took a look a Audio Technica M-50's? Heard there is nothing that can't beat these at their price point at $160 and some that are 2 and 3 times more. But if the KRK's works for you then that is all that matters.

I didn't get to those. I listened to 3 different pair near the same price and these were by far the most comfortable. I went in with my ears already sore from my existing pos skull candy headphones, and these felt great, and sounded great. They work great for me -=)

+1 on the KRK 8400s!

I really like them too. very comfortable, and nice transparent sound.

For Christmas I got a pair of KRK VXT6 monitors which are awesome, and they sound very similar to the KRK phones (KRK phones go deeper though)

cheers
Raymond

I have the 6400's. Graham Cochrane, over at the www.therecordingrevolution.com uses the 6400's to mix,... I figured if he can get professional results with them then I might as well give them a shot. Before I bought the 6400's I purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD 380 PRO's. I like the HD Pro's but upon Graham's recommendation to try the 6400's and them being half the price, I was interested to see how they would compare....long story short the KRK 6400's sound great. I was going to buy the KRK 8400's but only saw a slight difference in that the 8400's drop down to 5hz and max out at 23khz while the 6400's go down to 10hz and 22khz is their max. There are also a few other minor differences but nothing to justify getting the 8400's over the 6400's for me personally. When it comes to mixing in headphones eventually you'll get use to using which ever pair you decide to buy. I find the KRK's to be accurate, true and flat and I feel confident using them when I can't use my monitors.

Cheers , I like to ask the ohms because it change everything when you use a powerfull soundcard or just the laptop jacks , I got a pair of sony mdr150 for the small sound cards or laptops cd players etc ..because they also low on ohms wich give a normal feeling and puch when I lissen to tracks but then I got some beyerdynamics 80ohms for monitoing on more powerfull sources but for a computer or a mp3 player they need to much power so they got les punch and dynamic....... I never anderstanded for wich use are the 250ohms and above , guitar amps???

I use the KRK KNS 8400 Headphones for about one year and use it mostly together with the Focusrite VRM Box. A really great Duo for Headphone Mixing.
