So i'm new to the forums and i heard that this was a good place to get advice on what kind of headphones are great for the price. So ill simply start off with some of the music i like to listen to.
So pretty much a mix of a whole bunch of things. I like headphones that are nicely balanced between the mids highs and bass. but i would like a little more bass but not fake sounding (like SkullCandy's). Now i was considering buying aerial 7's but then just read that they were complete poop. Style doesn't matter ill be using them for home use. Preferably headphones where people cant hear the music i'm listening to.. if that is possible. I was looking at some sound canceling sony headphones, They were 79.99 which seemed like a good price. I'm looking for some headphones that range from 75-200$.
Thanks in Advance.
First, don't get noise cancelling, as you pay a premium for that feature, and you won't need it, especially if it's just for home use. Some good choices in your price range are the Ultrasone HFI580/780s, Denon D1100s, M50s, Senn HD25-1s, and V-Moda M80s/LP2s. Given your music, I assume you want some bass emphasis, but the question then is how much? Some of these are notorious basshead cans, while others might be more balanced.
