[HELP] Best earbud for basshead, <50$ please ???

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm planning to buy a new earbud, for my U10 :). But I don't know which one should I pick. So please help me to choose the most suiable one. I think I can pay up to 50 bucks for it, but no more than that. For one thing, I got a basshead, so I like strong, deep rich bass.Thank you.

cx380 II should do it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826106229&Tpk=cx380

honestly..... fake (yes, fake) beats tour.

produces sub-wooferish bass within 100+hrs of burn-in, and with the right seal.

the mids+highs are decent also.

Earbud or IEM? If IEM I would suggest stretching your budget to the Hippo VB which can be had for around $70, possibly lower in the FS forum.

Sony XB40EX, UE Metro-Fi220, CX300, Skullcandy.......

NuForce NE-700 are $65 and would probably suit you well. MEE M9 or the cx 380 mentioned earlier are $15-20 bass filled if you want something cheap.

Could check Monster's Outlet Store.

 

They recently had refurbished Turbines for $40 and they'll bass your head off.

Klipsch Promedia.

 

Same as S4. Different color, different cord, and that's it. $40 from tigerdirect (search on slickdeals.net and find a coupon code).

The Brainwavz M2 has a lot of bass and is really good for its price range. You can get them for around $50. On Amazon, they're $60 with Prime shipping at the moment, but you can find them on the FS forum for around 40-50 most of the time.

Koss KDX100's INSANE amount of bass, they hit deep and they hit HARD! Lifetime warranty doesn't hurt either, especially for buds. $30

My neighbor's boy is helping us move in a couple weeks. For helping us move I said I would get him a new pair of headphones since he was asking me to help him find a pair that he would like a couple weeks ago.

 

I think I will go with the Koss KDX100 in ear headphones. He listens to a lot of rap and what ever else Justin Beaver none-sense he listens to. "He is only 15 so I really have no clue what he listens to''

 

The main thing is not the price it is that these headphones need to be tough, he is only 15 and has no appreciation as of yet for nice things so the amount of ware and tear he is going to put on them is going to be pretty bad, secondly I would like to be able to get him a pair of slightly bass head earbuds. I am sure he would appreciate having very nice clean bass as well as not too recessed mids and nice bright highs.

 

''But IDK he mite not even notice, however I would and I do not want to give him crap. I would like to see him get a nice set of earbuds that even I would enjoy''

 

Any help pointing out decent pairs of bass head earbuds would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks.
