I love the Sennheiser HD 202 for watching TV and gaming. They are light, sound solid with good bass and are padded so comfortable for long periods. Also the long cord suits watching television on the sofa.   But I have had to return so many pairs because the cable is so fragile. Is there something equivalent out there that is well made? Or with a detachable cable because most of the time what breaks them is accidentally standing on the long cable.
I've had these headphones for around 3 years. I connect them directly to an iPod Touch, listening to spotify extreme quality and 320kbps MP3s. It sounds accurate I guess, but just a bit sparse and lifeless to my ears.   I'm not a basshead by any means, my preferred music is acoustic singer songwriter stuff. I just want something that sounds strong, clear, warm and natural.   Anyway I had a quick scan on Amazon and these are within my price range of...
hi there, just returning to this thread for more advice..   i went for the creative aurvana live cans but am now looking to step up. i like the sound of the aurvanas, bass is important to me, but i'm now noticing the highs are less than perfect. also the build quality feels a bit cheap. i'd still prefer a short cable length of around 1.5m or less as these will be used solely with an mp3 player. also circumaural for longer listening.   still the ATH-M50s, or...
Hey, thanks for the quick replies.   My budget, I'd say would be up to about £60 ($100) for now. In UK prices, the Yuin PK3 would be about £30, MX580s are on Amazon for £18.   I tried both the foam pads and the rubber rings but there wasn't much of a difference. I even tried the old physically holding them tight against my ears with my fingers trick. Always non-existant bass, tinny highs. A duff pair maybe? They were only £13 so I could care less really, but I...
I'm looking for a good cheap pair of earbuds to replace my standard apple earbuds.   IEMs aren't really an option, as they are for wearing during work, I'm constantly moving around and the IEM seal is constantly lost. I have Sennheiser IE6s which sound great, the problem is I have to keep my head relatively still...   I recently bought a pair of Sennheiser MX 470s from Amazon, and was really disappointed. They were very weak-sounding and tinny. Standard apples...
Thanks for the ATH-M50 recommendation, added to the shortlist. Are the Creatives circumaural? From what I've seen (an unboxing clip on youtube) the cups look like theyd sit on your ears. Also, I've just seen JVC HA-M750 going for £40, will have to research them a bit.
I'm looking for a pair of closed, circumaural headphones for use with my ipod touch. I'd prefer to spend between £50-£100. (For anyone not in the UK, god knows what that translates to in your money. If it helps, the Sennheiser HD280pro, Creative Aurvana, and Sony MDR-NC60 all seem to fall within that price range.) I'll be listening to quite a lot of mp3s and spotify tracks, so preferably something that masks their shortcomings. I listen to all types of music,...
