Not too big, easy to walk around with, good headphones

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I've been looking for a pair of headphones that are not too big, but still deliver good sound quality. My main issue is with the width of the driver. I've tried out some WeSC headphones, since they are quite thin, but the sound was simply horrific.

 

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

I am just selling the ESW9s in the EU. Check the For Sale forum.

I'm sorry, I really don't like the colours of the ESW-9s

I'd suggest the Creative Aurvana Live (same drivers as the Denon D1001) or the Koss Porta Pro.

The CAL is very cheap and would be perfect I think. It's not exactly small, but not too big.

 

The Porta Pro seems to have the best sound quality for such a cheap headphone. If you wear glasses they may be uncomfortable though.

 

If you do, the KSC75 is a good option, but it's a clip on headphone. You can actually buy a $4 headband to turn them into regular headphones and bypass the clip.

I was also thinking about getting the Sony MDR V500s

 

They seem like a good choice, but I'm not sure. The Porta Pro also seems nice.

Try out the JVC HA-S650, you'll be rockin' in no time
