I'm here to ask the opinion about my first over/on-ear headphone, to listen music at home. Consider that I'm completely newbie on the "high-quality audio world" and my ears isn't adapted to hear "little music details" yet.
My situation and what i'm looking for:
1) I use to listen Folk, Indie and Classic Rock, Latin Jazz, Bossa.
2) Headphones that works well without amps.
3) My budget is about 50-80 USD.
Also, please consider that I'm living outside North America/Europe, so the shipping may be a problem. Because of that, I would really appreciate more than 1 model recomendation, so I can search over a lot of online stores/ebay until find where they will send me overseas and charge with reasonable shipping price.
Early in the morning, I was searching on ebay and found this Sony MDR-V6 at a nice price, but the seller refurbished condition scares me, despite the vendor reputation. Anyone have any experience with refurbished headphones or heard about fake MDR-V6s? eBay link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DJ-Headphone-Monitor-Professional-Studio-Earphone-Ear-For-Sony-MDR-V6-V6-M-AY7-D-/181015693878?pt=AU_headphone&hash=item2a25604a36
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
PS: Sorry about my bad english
Can you add another $20 for the Alessandro MS1? It ships anywhere in the world for $100 and sounds like it was made for your first three genres. It's also above average for Latin Jazz and Bossa.
If not, you should look at some Superlux headphones. I've heard their HD 660 and like it plus the rest of their lineup also reviews well.
While that MDR-V6 seller has lots of positive feedback, the fact that he's based out of Hong Kong and is selling them for less than any used pair I've seen in the US makes me think twice.
