Best headphones at Best Buy under $200??? Beats?

post #1 of 88
Thread Starter 

I have some gift cards from xmas & want a good set of headphones for my computer.  I don't want to spend over $200-250.  Help me out please.

 

I'm about to buy some Beats headphones, but heard someone from this forum say they are junk for the money.

This must be the 4th Beats topic today...

 

Save yourself the money and get some Sony XB500 or XB700's.

 

I think by "someone" you meant this entire forum.

From a quick browse of the bestbuy website...

 

Shure SRH 840 or 750DJ

Sony MDR-XB500 or XB700 or

Sennheiser HD558 or HD598

X2 on the SRH 840.

XB700! They sound like the beats, but clearer more detailed better bass extension, more bass, doesnt overwhelm as much, better at everything in general (:

If new members don't start using the search button, I'm just going to start recommending Beats to newbies like a virus.

M50's are $200 at Best Buy... which is not a best buy at all.

OP - what kind of much do you listen to?

The title implies the gift cards he received are for Best Buy.

Why wouldn't you? I find the Beats to be fantastic for most genres of music. I love them with acoustic and classical stuff. Best headphones unamped out of my iPod ever.
