WTB: Budget cans under $50 [EU]

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi, everyone!

 

Got fed up with my crappy Philips cans, so I'm looking for some better phones.

 

The cans must be:

 

  • circumaural
  • closed back
  • low impedance (will be used unamped)
  • without a mic
  • with a 3.5mm plug

 

What music do I listen to? Alternative rock, nu-metal, post-hardcore. 

 

My budget is 40€ = $50 = 35£

 

Any offers or suggestions will be appreciated.

 

[UPDATE] just purchased HD668B's from a fellow Head-Fi'er. Waiting for them to arrive.

the Superlux HD668B

fit this category.

 

oh, yeah... you can get these in europe for a lot cheaper too. Forgot to mention that. That german audio equipment website that everyone loves has them ~22 euro I think.

Well, the shipping is a bit pricey...

 

 

LV

Latvia  25.00 EUR

 4-6 days

 

 

Since I don't know yet if I'll go to UK this summer or not, I'd appreciate some other offers or suggestions.

 

P.S. Sorry for bumping this topic so often.

Nobody wants to get rid of their old low-end cans?

I guess a bump is in order.

Did you see my thread? http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/496923/please-close-this-thread#post_6707244

They are not circumaural, however they should be really comfy on most heads since they have velour pads.

I just decided to have my sale thread closed since nobody answered but after reading this thread I think you might be interested. Review in this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/433318/shootout-44-portable-headphones-compared-sony-mdr-xb500-alessandro-ms1-added-07-08

 

PM me if you are interested.

 

PS: You'd have to be quick because I'm going on vacation on thursday.

Sorry, but I am looking for completely-over-ear phones only. There are a couple of reasons as to why: I need good isolation, in winter it's pretty damn cold here and for some some unfathomable reason I simply don't like on-ear phones.

Thanks for the offer anyway.

 

P.S. That's a mighty good review there, hadn't stumbled upon it yet. Cheers to the author.
