I sold my Sennheiser HD 439's. I'm without cans once again. Not sure what I'm gonna get next, but I'd really like the very best BUDGET cans they make, that are balanced in sound sig, with maximum clarity, separation, comfortable, and for someone on a budget ($50.00-80.00). Any tips?

1. Sennheiser HD598

2. Bose On-Ear

 

Ashamed i thought the Bose were good, high end phones. But.. I still use them as wear and tear phones on the buss, any suggestions for good value portable replacements?

The koss portapro are very good bang for Buck headphones. They are extremely portable, I always have one in my school back pack as a backup and they are good for watching a movie in the bus.
But I guess the boses are good for that purpose too. And you're looking for something better.

The SR60i is what I'd recommend, It very clear, pretty balanced sound sig (a bit trebly, not much bass), although Grados are not known for their comfort. They can be great DIY projects too :P

Thanks HolyCheese I will look into them. My Bose are falling apart by the minute!

I got mine for ~25 euros so anything near 35 bucks is a good deal. wink.gif

If you wan't looks, comfort, isolation and value when it comes to sound look the Philips Downtown. The Uptowns are pretty good too but costs a little more.

JVC S500 are a very good sounding on-ear but don't have the comfort of a Bose or Downtown.

You should look at the JVC FXD70 however if you are after good sound under 100$ but now we are talking about in-ears. The new Hifiman in-ear may also be a serious bang for buck as is the Sony MH1C.

The Downtowns look very good and philips say they have a natural and clean sound, which I am after. Will have to test them out when my bose finally give up. I have tried and owned a few in-ears (sennheiser CX300, JAYZ three among others) but i never have liked the fit (small ear canals?) . They always seem to fall out when I am on the move so I always tend to take on ears outside. Thanks for the suggestions!

You won't have any problems with the FXD70 falling out as you where them with a deep fit and I also like to have them around-the-ear which makes them impossible to fall out.

If I use these foam tips I can wear them for hours without any discomfort. Only if you have really tiny ear canals can fit be a problem. I have small ear canals myself and can only have the tips in small and the fit is tight but not an issue.

Nothing I have tried be it on-ear or over ear sound as good for the price as these. Extremely clear and engaging sounding with good timbre, balance and imaging. They will make your CX300 and Jays sound very mediocre. Isolation and build is also very good. For 60 bucks they are a steal.
