$300 to spend. No Amp. Style is important. Suggestions?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Liking the ATH M50s but I'm actually looking to spend a bit more money. Any suggestions? Pretty much trying to convince my self conscious self to NOT to buy beats by dre :). Need help! I will be wearing these out in public hooked up to an iphone, no amp.

Phiaton MS400s will be fine and save you $120.

will do? If they are just on par with the beats, id rather pay (actually around $60) more for the beats.  Im looking for cans that are stylish and make beats look like skullcandy earbuds

Ive seen these before but i was skeptical, because where i saw them was in a skymall catalog. So they are actually legit?

They're pretty legit, and they're optimized for iPhone/iPod use.

If you are that concerned about your appearance just buy something that is bling and go on with yourself and blend in with the flock. If you have any consideration for music sound quality nobody should have to convince you to not buy Beats. It should be a no-brainer.

Beats are terrible sounding compared to headphones people will mention here. Don't let you friends make you think otherwise by saying "They have great bass bro". Get something else that has been suggested and make their draws jop. If you think Beats look good, and that's important, maybe some SRH 840's? 

 

DON'T BE ONE OF THE SHEEPLE

Mdraluck what do you think about those V-Modas mentioned earlier in the thread? They are stylish and half the price of the beats, do they have decent sound quality?

post #11 of 24

They are good, and I suppose they look good, but they won't sound the best in that price range. (Not bad though)

 

Some reviews if you feel like reading

 

ATH-M50 will beat the Beats at about $120, just so you know, they're probably a great starting point so you don't have to spend too much money finding out what you like an don't like.

 

What kinds of music do you like? That's very important information.

 

(MaxMusic, that wasn't very nice either...)

I think that the AIAIAI TMA-1 are really stylish but in a minimal futuristic kinda way. These things are personal so YMMV 

Here's a review http://anythingbutipod.com/2010/12/aiaiai-tma-1-review/

Sound-wise I have no first hand experience but the review seems positive.

They seem to be around $200 US.

Please sir, take a look at the Grado Prestige line. Some fantastic headphones fill that list

Audio-Technica also makes some pretty sleek portables... the ESW9A and ES7 come to mind... I haven't personally heard them, but I've heard they have good sound and they look really good

For the sake of people here who actually care about getting more people (like me) to enjoy a higher quality of sound, you should really watch the shit you put out. 


 

I believe he (Kibble) was just trying to have a little fun. He probably did it not trying to fool you into thinking those are great choices but rather suggest headphones that are such obvious pieces of junk that you would get the joke. Apparently you thought he was trying to be mean and actually convince you to buy the fore mentioned junk. I got the joke and I bet most others did as well. Doesn't seem like you did though.
