So I've had too many cheap headphones break on me and am looking for a good quality headset to put on my Christmas list. I am not yet very knowledgeable when it comes to headphones, nor am I an audiophile in any meaning of the word. How about I just list some of the things I am looking for so that you guys can help me find the perfect pair?
-I will be using the headphones mainly for music. (Dubstep, metal, electronic) and podcasts/audio-dramas and occasionally for video games and movies
-I want something with all around good sound but I do enjoy a little extra bass
-removable cord for a cheaper fix if I bust it
-they need to be comfortable as I will be wearing them for a few hours on end
-price, can't be too high (under 100) but if it gets me everything else on the list plus quality I'm willing to go higher
Something else I'm interested in is an inline remote and Mic for taking phone calls and skipping music tracks and changing volume on my phone, not as important though. A friend told me that beats makes a cord with both built in, could I just replace the stock cable with one of those?
I have looked at the numark red waves, they have the removable cord and a decent price but being that they are "DJ" headphones I don't know if they will go well with what I plan to use them for.
Any reccomendations are welcome
Shure srh 840 is a good option. fairly balanced. Good bass. (some claim it to have a mid bass hump). Nice sound stage, closed can considered. Cord is removable. I love em. they run around a buck and a half. But if you look around you might could find them used around 100. good luck.
