Bose or Beats

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 

Hey Everyone,

 

I just joined the forum ! Just needed some advice on headphones.

 

I got mugged last week =( and my bose quiet comfort headphones 15 were stolen. Right now I am using a skullcandy low rider headphone and they sound good but I want to get a new set of headphones. The Beats by Dr Dre studio look pretty nice and I am leaning towards those, or should I get the same set of Bose headphones. What do you guys think or do you have other reccomendations ? I mainly listen to top 40 songs in the charts and a lot of pop and r&b. My budget is under 300$

Can't tell if serious or trolling. You can get a lot better headphones than Bose or Beats for that budget.

Your not going to find too may supporters for Bose and none for the Beats on this website, check out CALs (Creative Aurvana Lives), or Superlux seem to be good bang for the buck headphones.

I doubt anyone on this forum will recommend any of those 2 brands. And you seem like youre from Singapore. So 300SGD? Makes a whole lot of difference. You can go check out Denon 1100 or just go down to Jaben. Theyll recommend different headphones to you depending on what youre looking for. Many of them look good and sound good for <300SGD. And where did you get mugged???

How about neither.

Try the Ultrasone HFI 580/HFI 780

Honestly, no, don't go for either.

 

Is isolation a factor?  I'm guessing we can rule out open-back ones.

 

Also, do you care much for how the headphones look?  Some cheap ones that sound quite good look kind of...geeky, honestly. (superlux headphones come to mind)

My parents are from Singapore but I am born and raised in Toronto. Sad thing is that these are the only brands they have display models of and you can test them, all the others you cant try them so I have limited choices.  As a result I thought of asking for help ! Yeah headphones that look nice should be good, I also dont want them to be that bulky and yeah a bit of isolation should be good, dont want to disturb people.

Go for some Audio Technicas. Disregard BOSE & Monster 


- Also unsure if trolling.

Well, I've heard that the Skullcandy Aviators are quite good, and you might be able to find a demo of them somewhere in Toronto.  But as far as other choices go...well, you could always check out this thread:

If you wanna get something even more portable, you could even go for an IEM, there are cheap ones that sound quite good too.  If you're interested in trying them out, I'd recommend you check out this thread too:

But these threads are quite good when it comes to looking for what you want, even if there is a lot to read through.

Who cares if it's a troll or not, the more useful information on the forum the better, I'd say. :P
