Great Value for the money

A review on: Monoprice MHP-839
engineerd3d

Pros: Inexpensive, good quality audio.

Cons: Have to buy upgrades to get performance.

These are also known as the monoprice 8323's.   I have these for nearly 2 years.

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

“The praise that has been heaped upon the Sennheiser HD650 headphone is something that probably every headphone OEM envies. The HD-650 is nearly a decade old and yet is still viewed by many as a top tier dynamic, worthy flagship, and is the benchmark that many measure price to performance ratio against. I personally was cruising along quite happy with my set up… Running almost exclusively...” --The Fed

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

“(Disclaimer: This review was written while considering the very low price-point of the M50, and what you can get for that amount of money. It does not mean the M50 can go up against the high-end headphones that cost several hundred to thousands of dollars. My main headphones are high-end headphones, and the M50 is only used while I'm doing tracking or traveling. I wouldn't use it as my everyday...” --Lunatique

“ REVIEW: Sennheiser HD 800Overview Reviewing a statement product is tough – especially one that was as highly anticipated as the HD800. There is already a huge buzz on head-fi about them, and many have already declared them the best dynamic headphone on the market. But most of these proclamations have been from owners, One potential difference between my listening to the HD800 and other...” --Skylab

Sennheiser HD 600

“The Sennheiser HD600's are my first set of headphones. I have long wanted to pen down this review, and here I am writing this review after several months of experience with my beloved HD600’s.         Intro : I am an 21 year old Engineering student living in a small town in India. I would like to call myself an music enthusiast, rather than an audiophile. I mostly...” --YoYo JoKeR

Sennheiser HD 598

“       Want to preface this by presenting this picture, I'm not a TROLL or a A-Hole, I just like to mock the fu** out of headphones I dislike. This time its time for the "Fehlerhaft HD598".   I'm a fan of the 580-600-650, I own all of them. The 598 is interesting because it sounds crude. Coming from Senn I was surprised by how bad it sounded..the first day I got them I...” --MrTechAgent

Sennheiser MOMENTUM

Sennheiser MOMENTUM

“I will get my bias out of the way first: I really enjoy the sound of many Sennheisers, and in my opinion the Momentum Full Size is the best sounding portable I have tried, and the best all-round sounding consumer-targeted portable headphone on the market.    Appearance-wise the Momentum is, as I mentioned, an exquisite feeling headphone. It reminds me of that modernist British...” --bpandbass

Superlux HD-668 B

“ As the saying in the title goes, this has never been truer than for these headphones. Thankfully, Superlux sells sound quality, not an overhyped brand name. Can you really get great sound for $40? Oh yes, and it's right here.   I was recommended these headphones by a fellow forum member and after a day or two of investigation I decided I really liked what I read about them and...” --WrxSTI

Shure SRH840

“   As an amateur hi-fi enthusiast I'm certainly no head-fi expert, but that won't stop me from saying that the Shure SRH840 professional monitoring headphones are a sweet sounding set of cans. I don't think I’ve ever owned a pair of headphones or in-ear monitors that cost me more than $25 up until two years ago when The Spirited Uncle M officially introduced me to premium sound...” --SoundApprentice
