Replacement for Skullcandys

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I bought a pair of Skullcandy Full Metal Jacket 11mm back in November. They have now broken as the right earphone would not work. I paid £35 for them and I am looking for something in a similar price bracket.

Models I am currently looking at are Sennheiser CX400, 500 and 95 and the Shure SE110. Can anybody compare the sound quality of these and the noise isolation? All of them come with a 2 year warranty so can anyone tell me about build quality and also the comfort, I don't like earphones that feel like they are pulling down.

At the moment I am leaning towards the Shure phones but I am open to other suggestions and your opinions on all the headphones.

I'll say no to cx-400 and 500s.
Not sure about 95 and se110.
There are the head direct re-2s, ah-c551s at around this price -range i think.

the denon ah-c551's can be had for about 60 shipped and there may be a pair for $30 in the sale forum.

Definitely check those out too.

Read reviews here about the phones because you likely won't have a chance to test any out for your self.

Thanks for the replys. Big problem is I live in the UK so the denon's and Westone's are over my budget.

I'm torn between the CX95s and the SE110s. The SE110s can be had about £20 cheaper though. I'm not sure what else there is in this range.

The genres I listen to are Prog Metal, Power Metal, a bit of Drum n Bass (just for Pendulum) and some classical/romantic music mostly organ music.
