Which of these would you recommend?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for headphones that fill these criteria

 

-Good bass ( I mainly listen to hip hop/rap )

-Portable

-Look stylish

-Comfy

-Closed ( Need good isolation )

-Under $100

 

Narrowed it down to 4 pairs : Senn HD 228, px 200 ii, denon ah-p372 & ultrasone zino.

 

Which one would you guys recommend? And I'm open to other suggestions.

That's a really tricky price range for portables. I would probably get an ATH-ES7 or a used pair of HD25-1 IIs, which pop up for around $110 from time to time. Better act fast if you want an ES7 though, they would seem to be discontinued or just massively unavailable...

The Audio Technica ATH-FC700A's are quite exquisite; they're pretty cheap, have great bass, and are very portable.

Anyone know where I could find es7 for cheaper? They're $275 on amazon... I found some for 20 bucks on ebay, but that seems to be too good to be true. I saw someone post about them being $100 on buy.com, but they're not available there anymore =[

The ES7 is pretty darn expensive. It's made more for looks than for sound, although the sound is reportedly very good as well.

 

As for bassy options, I unfortunately can't recommend any in particular. I'm not too fond of bass-heavy headphones; I prefer bass-neutral headphones that present the music as it is. (Which is not, as some believe, lacking in bass)

IEMS: Portability, isolation, under $100...

Absolutely the way to go...
