Beats Mixr On-Ear Headphones

Pricey and not the best, but there are some strong points

Flagretro

Pros: Good bass overall; can play loud; seems durable; won't disturb your spouse in bed!

Cons: Not as much clarity; on-ear design uncomfortable after long periods; pricey

Well I just joined Head-Fi yesterday after spending quite a bit of time on the site, so I thought I'd drop some novice input.  My wife knew I wanted some nice cans, after being without any since I was a teenager.  As a present, she recently gave me a set of the Beats Mixr model.  Not exactly what I would have bought, but these were certainly better than anything else I've owned. ...

V-MODA Crossfade M-80

V-MODA Crossfade M-80

“ So here's my first mini-review. Kinda late, but I like these so much that I had to write a review for them xD   Intro One of the reasons I bought the V-MODA M80 is because I wanted a portable headphone that has good SQ and yet has the ability to turn heads. I also wanted my portables to have very good build quality and decent isolation because I will be using them during travel....” --Kagelou

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

“ The HD25-1 has been my favorite (trans)portable headphone for quite a few months. I spend a few nights a week away from my home rig and the HD25 works wonders with my iBasso D10 and netbook. Hi-fi on the go has never been so rugged and simple. Best of all is their sonic versatility – though my backup portables, the AKG K181Dj, excel with certain genres and recordings, the Sennheisers perform...” --ljokerl

Grado SR-80

Grado SR-80

“ Not a review, just my little opinion on these nice headphones.   My Grado SR80s are the older ones (Not the new 'i' version) I'm guessing my SR80s were made around in 2001-2003 etc.   All I can say these SR80s are very musical sounding headphones, and they can sure boogie too.   I think the SR80s are one of Grado's best headphones in my opinion. And can sound just...” --TDL-speakers

Koss KSC75 Portable Stereophone Headphones

Koss KSC75 Portable Stereophone Headphones

“I bought these KSC75 clips because I lost my modded Koss UR55 and I read oodles of praise for them online. At first I was skeptical because they are very flimsy looking and they are often compared to the Koss PortaPro which sounds muddy in my opinion. So I tried them on and I was immediately impressed by the overall balance and airy sound. Everything sounds so natural and forward, and...” --kokakolia

Aiaiai TMA-1

“ *Previously posted in the Full-Sized Headphones forum.  I only recently became aware of the review section of Head-Fi.*     PREFACE   This is largely intended to be a review of the AiAiAi TMA-1 with using the Audio Technica ATH-M50 as a point of reference.   A forum member asked for this comparison in the main TMA-1 thread.  I...” --Curly21029

Koss PortaPro - Headphones ( semi-open )

“ What can be said about these headphones that has not already been said in the 25+ years they have been in production?   Well, my girlfriend thinks they look silly...  And that for some odd reason makes me love them more.   Out of few phones I currently own, I always find myself reaching for these.    With the wonderful bass and full bodied sound comes the...” --BloodyPenguin

Sennheiser Amperior On-Ear Headphones

Sennheiser Amperior On-Ear Headphones

“ Oh, the Amperior - the street-wise sequel to the famed Sennheiser HD 25. They have a very similar sound signature, but the Amperior sports a fuller, more well defined bass and has toned down the sibilant, often unwieldy trebles of its predecessor. The build quality has increased. The style has been bumped up a notch. iDevice controls and mic are now present. And considering you can easily...” --uncleungie

JVC Victor Head-band Portable Headphones | HA-S500-B Black (Japanese Import)

“ I got these straight from Japan via Tenso right as Dsnuts got the hype train rolling last fall. Bought 3 pairs, of which I gave one to a colleague (yes,they are so inexpensive you can just give them away!) and one to my brother in law, and luckily, I kept a pair myself! I have an ongoing love-affair with these headphones! Higher end portables (Sennheiser HD 25-1 II, ATH ES700 etc.) has come...” --esmBOS

Sennheiser PX 100-II Supra-Aural Mini Headphones - Black

“There's not a whole lot I can say about these. I think they are an excellent compact headphone to have in a bag on the go, they are affordable, sound good with everything, and are a definite step up from the crummy earphones that come with most cell phones and iPods. ” --bpandbass
