Shoestring budget Headphones (around $30)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm new here, so I don't know if I'm doing that right...

 

OK. I'm just starting to get into buying music gear, but I have the budget of a poor Brazilian college student, so I don't have much money lying around. I'm looking for a really cheap headphone, and so far my choice is a JVC HARX700 ($34). Can I find anything better costing this much? I gonna use it on my computer, but my sound card is on-board.

 

Also, a friend of mine dared me to find the best headphone she could get for less than ($30). What you guys think?

 

And I know this is the full-size forum, but I just brought a MEElectronics M9 ($20) to use with my cellphone, and I would like to know if that was a good purchase. I mostly listen to alt. rock, indie, lo-fi, etc.

 

Let me know if I broke any rule =)

Welcome to head-fi!

 

I think the RX700's are good for the price. They sound like +$100 headphones when modded. Pretty easy to drive.

I cant comment on the M9's.

Thanks, and sorry for the new thread I opened, I saw the buying guidance thread later.

Well, I probably gonna buy a RX700 for me then. I was just a little off because I don't know how to relate best headphone to music taste and etc.

 

I still need to find a headphone under $30 to my friend, there's any comprehensive comparison here? I found the iem one, but not any for headphones. Another problem is shipping. I paid $7 for the M9 shipping, and I'm yet to find a dealer with a good shipping price for Brazil.
