Closed portables for under a 100$

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I am looking for to improve my portable listening expirience.

I initialy bought the senn's px100, and while I am very pleased with the sound, I find them absolutely useless outside - the isolation is non-existent.

 

That is the primary reason I got my brainwavz m1 in ears - to get isolation from the noise ouside and get a somewhat decent SQ.

 

I am looking for a closed portable to get a better SQ than the M1 while keeping the outside noise where it belongs - outside. I do no consider my self a "basshead", but I love the punch of a good tight controlled bass.

 

I am leaning towards the AKG k518dj, which are about a 100$ where I live.

Are there better cans in that price range (100$ tops - no hd25-II please ) I shall consider before buying?

 

Any other thoughts on how can I improve the SQ of my portable (ipod touch 2g, Apple Losseles, LOD - Fiio e5) the price mentioned (100$)?

 

 

Thanks guys!

Thank you for the advice - I've read great reviews about the m50.

However their price in my country is almost 250$ (don't ask me why).

And ordering them from amazon incl. shipping and vat. will be almost 200$.

 

Any other great headphones for 100$?

Denon DN-HP700, if you look in the Fullsize forum I have put a review of them. A VERY NICE headphone for $100.
