Hope you guys can help me out here with my decision. I am a noob. But reading the forums and esspecially the excellent reviews here...has started my interests in headphones.(Jokers thread is truly unpararelled)
So far i have used Sennheiser MM 50i, Sony MDR XB 20, AKG K 28NC and of course the normal ones that comes with the ipods and phones.
Music taste is eclectic. R&B, Pop to county.James Blunt to David Guetta.
I am looking for a headphone that i can use with my Ipod and my smartphones.(Samsung Galaxy S/HTC desire).
At first I was looking at the Meelec 9M, Nuforce Ne6 or Soundmagic PL30. Basically a budget that i am used to and i am comfortable with. Till i read the forums..tbh I never heard about them. Reading the reviews ...it seems to be great quality and value compared with my sennheisers or teh OEM headpohnes.
But reading these forums it got me interested in the upperlevel headphones.
I can buy the Qjays for $130/140.-- Seems like a good price.Normal price is around $230.
Or the Head-Direct RE0 for 80$.
Should I go for the more expensive models? IF so so whoich one. Would it be a huge upgrade with ipod and smartphones that i use to listen to music with over the more budget friendly models.
Also with my Smartphone i will use handsfree adapter to connect the headphones to my phone.
With what i read here it has peaked my interested in buying some higher level Headphones and with the way i tend to (mis)use them...spendings o much kinda scares me.
Anyway looking forward to your input and help.
