Amazing Cans Under $100

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey, Head-Fi peeps
I am recently looking for a pair of headphones that cost less than $100 that has great some quality and is really durable. I really don't care about looks. Thanks!

if you don't care about looks.......http://www.amazon.com/Technica-ATH-AD700-Open-air-Audiophile-Headphones/dp/B000CMS0XU/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1303313579&sr=1-1

 

Are you looking for something with portability? what do you plan on driving them with?

I've tried:

Sony V6

Grado SR60i and 80i

Alessandro MS1

Superlux 668B

 

i could easily recommend any of them, depend on what are you looking for. but all good headphones overall

^ I second the 80i. If you're a rocker, those Grados don't disappoint.

i love the Grados, but they are not durable. especially the cord.

you must be really mean with your headphones. mine are, like new (except for the fact that i removed the grill lol) but cable seems strong enough, Ive only have them for 5 months tho

The only one I use right now is the Koss Pro DJ 100. It's my favorite headphone (but not best) I've ever had, but it needs an E5 at the bare minimum. DJ100 is $80.

 

I also find the SRH-440 an Beyer Dynamic DT-235 to be quite good. The DT-235 even sounds better when modded. I'm using mine with the Maxell DHP-II pads, some blu-tack and another mod.

 

AKG K240 Studio is also a steal if you can find it for $70, but it also needs an amp and a good one. It doesn't sound terrible unamped though.

 

FYI Beyer Dynamic DT-880 velor and pleather pads fit them. I don't suggest this if you own the DT-880 already, because it stretches out the pads too much and ruins them.
