I've already looked at Grado sr60i for $110 Sennheiser hd428 for $100 are any of these good and what other ones do you suggest. Also I'm buying from a store because i don't have a credit card because I'm under 18. Also since I'm in Toronto if anyone knows some store there that sell headphones.


Sr60i should never cost you $110.  If you're looking for comfort as well as rock, go for the m50s.  Grados are horrible for comfort and everybody loves the m50s.

I hear people say this about the AD700 all the time, but I've never felt that. They have normal bass, but with an open design which means you don't feel the "thump" as hard compared to closed cans.

If you're outside of the US, Grados have a terrible mark up and are not worth it. Two affordable headphones with good isolation are the Sennheiser HD280 and Sony MDR-V6 or 7506. Both are fairly easy to find in any music store and don't get hit with cross border price hikes quite as badly as others.

Meh, not all of us are fans of the M50. I much preferred the Shure 840/750, M-Audio Q40, Phiaton MS400, etc.

Well if you like your Sony XB300 then you might want to go for Sony XB700.  Grado SR60i is good for rock but is open and a rip off at $110.

 

Since you can only buy from a store, it would be better for you to try out headphones yourself to see which headphones you like.

Koss Pro DJ 100. Brilliant headphone. Can be had for $50 - $80 USD. Koss doesn't even make much (if anything) above $200.
EDIT: The pads can be replaced (can't remember with what exactly) for better Isolation, or so I've heard. I haven't tried different pads.

I don't know much about headphones, but I'll try to explain what I want

 

I'm not really an audiophile, but I love music and i want some good headphones. The headphones I had were skullcandy skullcrushers (I don't think you people like skullcandy) But they were a major step up from those crappy things that come with ipods. I found them to be very comfortable, and no sound leaking (thats called closed right?) I liked the bass, although it was a little much..

 

I was thinking of getting beats cuz they look so good =P

 

But I decided i'd prefer audio quality. So... I want something good for mostly hip-hop, good bass and vocals. I think i want closed if I understand what that means lol. It will be used mostly in my house, so doesn't have to be portable or anything, decent durability though, comfortable.

 

My price range would be around $400 max, but I would prefer maybe $100-250

Can you not get the M50 for $115?  On Amazon now, 428 cost $60, V700DJ $87, hd280 pro $90, M35 $54.  Your shop is ripping you off.  Are you quoting US dollars or some other dollars?

post #2636 of 29490
The money is in Canadian dollars so when you buy in stores, even though the Canadian and American dollars are about even the stuff is still more expensive. I think that for $119 for hd 280 is good considering that your price is at $90. Are they good headphones?

Ah.  So Canadian prices are higher.  Just like UK then.  :s

 

Well like I said, better to try the headphones out yourself then ask on here since you'll be going to the shop.  How the headphones sound to you is what matters.

I'm interested in buying the Ath-M50s but i was wondering if they are worth the $150 price tag(along with shipping) (http://cgi.ebay.ca/AUDIO-TECHNICA-ATH-M50-HEADPHONES-COILED-CABLE-NEW-/170622199902?pt=DJ_Gear_Lighting&hash=item27b9e0285e#shId) Because i live in Canada my selection is quite limited. So i'm not sure i should spend the 150.

post #2640 of 29490

They usually go for $120 in US.  I don't know how much they usually for in Canada.  In UK, they go for $210 dollars so as much hype this headphone is getting on here, it is something I'll probably never buy.

 

You might be interested in getting on the Superlux Express Train.  Only $59 CAD.
