Lol many, many threads on this already.

What kind of music do you listen to? Is it mp3, wav etc? Do you plan on getting an amp and/or DAC any time soon? Will you use these outside of the house?

for that price there's only one pair of headphones I'd consider and that's the Sennehsier HD25-1 mkII headphones. they don't necessarily need an amp, very forward sounding, the bass is good but better with a headphone amp (don't need to go nuts).

Semi- portable, brilliant at home and i've had mine since 1997 and i'd never give them up!

^Agreed. FWIR the Sennheiser HD25-1 is nigh indestrucible. When I tried them out I really liked them. Great bass and overall sound and felt well built. If it wasn't for them being on ear I would've got them. It all depends on what music you listen to and if you can do open cans though. You might also read up on the Ultrasone HFI-780 or Pro 750.

Whatever cans you're gonna get, they will completely and utterly destroy your SC

HD 25 I II for sure... or ESW9. For an open alternative, try some Grados.

Unfortunately there are too many fake ESW9's around. Grado would be another good choice, but I find that unlike much of the Sennheiser range the HD25-1's are quite forward and will do fine without an amp, just like the Grado's.

ATH-m50 or HFI-780 are my recommendations

I think you need headphones that are easier to drive. A few from Grados or Denons can be considered. From Grados SR60 is the best unamped. From the Denons, I assume D1001. However, If I were you I will try already D2000. You have a big budget-$200.

seriously... your thread title made me think u have 200headphones and cannot decide which one to use...
post #12 of 20
$200 is a very small budget lol, not big. Denon D2000 are actually quite difficult to drive, but nothing like a HD650 or K701.

i just ordered Denon D2000s from amazon for $237. but now i'm definitely going to need a headphone amp. i just hope i can find a perfect match for around $200.

I hear good things about the ATH-ESW9A. Can't go wrong with one of the Grado models either

The Etymotic ER-4P's can be a perfect match for your itouch....huge soundstage good isolation and deep bass.
