Best Sennheiser under $100!!!

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm new here and I'm a noob. I'm going to buy the first pair of high-quality headphones. Most of the time, I listen to music at my campus, library and home. I listen to Pop, Slow Rock, Rap, Hip Hop, R&B and Electronic (Taio Cruz and Lady Gaga stuffs). I'm considering PX100. Do you have any suggestions? I'm only interested in Sennheiser that under or around $100.

Just curious, why only Senns? I would say HD448's or HD555 which can be modded into 595's. The problem is that neither of those are really good for your types of music...

Like I said, I'm a noob and that is the only brand that I have experience on :D !!!

That's a horrible reason.

Buy sennheisers because of lack of experience >> lack of experience due to only buying sennheisers >> buy sennheisers because of lack of experience >> lack of experience due to only buying sennheisers 

 

You don't need 'experience' to buy a new brand, otherwise head fi would become far more untolerable.

ATH-M50's may be a little over your budget, but they're probably one of the best for those kinds of music at about that price.

Brand loyalty is the reason why some electronic companies survive and why some companies fail. Get enough unquestioning patrons to attest the quality of your product, and your company will continue to thrive, for another 5 years or so, before the next generation of products come in line.

There are a number of low-budget headphone that you should take a look at. PX100 is one of them. Apart from that, you can also look at the Koss Porta-Pro and Grado SR60, 

If you are open to second hand headphone, you will get more choices, like the aforementioned M50.

Koss UR-55 is really cheap and sounds good too. Basically the same thing as the Porta-Pro.

HD580 and mod them to HD600.

post #11 of 40

if you have a little bit more dough to spend, you can get the m50, as suggested above.... you could also get the shure srh-440 which is $100. Its a bit neutral though so you might find it boring, Grado sr60i also looks good.

 

I wouldn't stick with sennheiser, imo they have nothing worth mentioning below $250...

If you want to use them at the library, you will want to avoid open design headphones, such as the Sennheiser HD 555.

 

I wouldn't recommend the HD 448 really. If you want an awesome sounding cheap, comfortable, pair of headphones, get the Creative Aurvana Live.

HD580 is definitely not under $100. That said, I'd avoid Sennheiser unless you're willing to shell out for HD580/600/650.

If you can save up a little more and buy the M50's that would be nice.

Got my recent pair for 70$, so yeah.
