Bassy Headphones w/ Detachable Cable under $100

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

As the Title says I'm looking for headphones under $100

 

I've been looking on these forums for for months and they helped me my buy Senn Hd 428 but can't find a comparisons with my wants

 

Wants:

 

- Bassy Headphones(Not muddy but tight and "hard" and bass that doesnt creep into mids) 

- Detachable Cables ( I have an ungodly ablity to rip wire or damage strain reliefs)

- Able to be powered by iPhone 1g

- Under $100

 

*Sleek looks a plus

 

 

Current Prospects

 

Shure SRH 440 - Proably too balanced without enough low end

 

M-Audio Q40 - Over Budget

 

AKG k240s - May have too high impedance for an unamped iPhone

 

Thanks for any Recommendations.

Welcome to Head-Fi. 

 

I suggest considering IEMs. If interested, you'd want to read and post in the portable headphones forum.

Thanks and I already have but the doc says that I can't wear IEMs any more after my M6's tip got stuck in my ear. I have went through all of ljokerl's shootout's but there really isnt one a full size over ear monitors.

Shure SRH750DJ's really spend $4 more dollars and buy them, or get them on the marketplace.

Cross the K240's off.

From personal experience, the MK II don't have alot of bass at all. They excel in the mid-high range, but bass is a no.

Basically good for guitars or pop music. And yes, you'll probably want an amp.

 

I don't know about the other models of 240's though but i can guess they are very similar.

Around here I've seen remarks that the studios are bass friendly but i may be wrong.

I agree that he should cross the k240 off the list if you want something bass heavy.

My AKG k240 Studio does have a lot of bass to my ears. Still not bass heavy of course.

They actually have more bass then my old k701 and my new k601. I've tried the velour and plastic pads on the k240. I don't think it helps the bass any, but it's possible.

I use mine with the Schiit Asgard.
 

I think the SRH-750DJ would be a good match, but I hate them. I can see why people could like them. Just not my kind of sound signature.

That makes you a good head-fi'er not because you agree with me, but because you'll recommend something you don't like. I probably wouldn't recommend K701's to anyone cause I don't like them and see no use for them where other headphones can accomodate.

Not to many headphones have a detachable cables, especially this low of money that is.

 

You might wnat to wait I think the Sony MDR ZX500 has a detachable cable and it should be cheaper then $100, it's not release yet though and we are still waiting to hear how it sounds, I might actually purchase the ZX700 personally.

I think it is safe to say the 750dj is a great pick, gosh i cant remember if the input is a 2.5mm or a 3.5mm

 

im leaning towards 2.5mm, so you will need to invest a few bucks into a 2.5mm to standard 3.5mm cable if you wish to use it with the shure, also make sure the head is really skinny or else it wont even fit.  It may or may not, i cant remember what the 750dj input looked like :P

I recently bought the SRH750DJ - still waiting to receive shipment. It's currently sold new through a seller on Amazon.com for $104 shipped - a very good price. I don't consider these headphones to be "sleek" or portable looking, but it is known for being efficient. I expect its bass to impress with additional amplification. But I have no idea how it would do from an iphone.
