Full Size, Unamped, Punk Rock, <$200 - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Ima add my vote for the V6, and that's comparing it with my Creative Aurvana Live's, which are the same as the Denon D1000/1001.

The beyer pads are a must, though, but even then you shouldn't even be hitting $100.

Even with my budget to $200 , the V6 are a great can for $75?
Okay, I will definitely look into them !

The MDR-V6 is also a good option, although if you have $200, you could try the MDR-7509HD instead. Never heard that one, but it's next on my list.

The MDR 7509HD is an 'improved' MDR V7 which can be good, however if you want a good lower bass (which can be a bit harsh on the ears) go for the trusted V6-es. They are a great start and a good reference for later.

"That thing" needs some juice to open it up; it's not bad without an amp, but an amp makes a clear difference.

I will be mostly using them sitting at my computer or laying on my bed, I will rarely be walking around or taking them outside.

SR225i > V6. The only advantage of V6s are that they are closed, more compact, and more durable; however, these advantages are nullified if you're mostly using them at home. With regards to SQ, they cannot compare to the SR225i.

A cheaper Grado (SR60, SR80, SR125, MS1) would also be a great choice; however, you can tell a improvement with the SR225i even without an amp.

I'm not a great fan of their looks, but if everyone says that the Grado's are really that great I'll have to buy one then . They will be a definite upgrade from my ES7's correct ?

They're different, but not necessarily an upgrade.
