I was wondering what is the best headphone under $150 for listening to rap music on my iPod? I have no amp and i won't be buying one either so I want a headphone that sounds great out of the box. Any suggestions? Price is not fixed, I can go up to maybe $170-$180 but I would really like to keep it under that $150 mark.
There are quite a few options - really depends on what type of sound you're looking for. "Best" will vary widely depending on who you ask but some solid options in the <$150 price range would be the Yamaha EPH-100, FutureSonics Atrio MG7 (w/coupon noted above), JVC HA-FXT90 and FX500, and Audio-Technica CKM99.
Joker i thank you so much for the continuous support and advice......
just wanted to share that i purchased these:
just for the ear-hooks \ cable guides.... to use with my id America Spark :)
hopefully they're of nice quality...turned out much cheaper than
ordering the stand-alone cable guides from Meelectronics (expansive delivery)
The reason I like the MEElec ones is that they are soft silicone with no ridges - I even switched the PFE 232 I have on loan from the Phonak guides to the MEE ones. I don't like plastic guides or anything with a pre-formed shape like the Sennheiser and old V-Moda ones. I can't really tell from the picture what kind those DX ones are but hopefully they'll work for you.
