Advice on some decent affordable headphones/earbuds

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, i'm new here and i'm looking for some advice on a decent pair of headphones/earbuds that sound great, but won't empty my wallet. I originally was using Skullcandy FMJ's and I stuck with those for a long time because of their lifetime warranty. I thought they were great. About a week ago one of my friends had me try out a pair of his Sennheisers, and they were awesome to say the least. So I got online and was trying to do some research, I looked on CNET and other sites and I saw a whole bunch of other name brands. I figured that real life people(not that the writers and editors aren't) and audiophiles could probably give me better advice. So, i'm looking for some over the ear ones, and earbuds(in ear). My max price is $100 each. I generally listen to heavy metal and alternative, but I do listen to rap and other genres, so what do you think would be my best bet for my type of music, and my budget?

 

By the way, thanks for the help!

First off, Welcome to head-fi; sorry 'bout your wallet. 

 

Secondly, I really can't recommend anything but if you haven't looked at Joker's comparison threads you should.  IMO these both should be sticky's.

Thanks, I haven't seen those before. I haven't done much looking around on the site yet, I was mainly looking at the ratings on here. those are some good threads, they will definitely help, thanks again.
