Need help in deciding which headphone/earbud/etc

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I just got a Yuin Pk3 with the e5 amp combo and did not like it at all!  It does not block outside sound( which i'm trying to get)  Although it has pretty good quality sound. 

 

Basically what i'm looking for is a headphone/earbud/whatever around 100$ that block outside sound, got high quality sound and bass so I can use to workout in the gym!

 

Thank you very much.

You shouldn't jump to conclusions so quickly!  Spend a few days researching at least, so you don't get caught up in the hype of just one.  I'd recommend reading through your price tier in this thread:

Also, earbuds simply do not block sound.  If you wanted isolation, the last thing you should have gotten was an earbud.  IEMs are definitely what you want.  I don't think you should go for full around-ear headphones for working out.  They'll just get in the way and fall off all the time.

 

I'd recommend you take a look at the offerings from MEElectronics, they might fit your bill.  Brainwavz might also be good.  Just read up on them on that thread I linked to, and look around a bit more on the forum and with google.

 

Also, the Soundmagic PL50 might be a good choice, but it's not exactly bass heavy.  But it is designed to be worn over-the-ear and comes with ear guides so it won't fall off very easily.

Yeah, they look like they might be a good choice.  Also, the new Brainwavz B2 looks like it's having a preorder sale - but at $140, it's a little (a lot) over your price point.  Actually, forget I mentioned this, getting sucked into buying something too expensive is often the way things go here on head-fi. :P

AKG K 518 DJ, supraaural good bass, tight fit so it wont fall off, and lower than your budget.

I went for the head-direct's re0 at 80 bucks.  It has the highest sound/isolation/build quality for its price range.
