In need of Earphones similar to beats [max £100]

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 

I have had two pairs of Monster Beats 'tour' Earphones and they both broke. At the moment I'm stuck with an apple pair so i really need to buy a new pair ASAP.

I need a pair which has similar sound bass/treble quality or better to the beats. The type of music i listen to is generally hiphop/rap. Asked on another forum somebody recommended the Head Direct HiFiMan RE0 but some reviews said that it kind of lacks base.

Under 100 quid and all the bass you'll need.

Why not @tyrael

 

Can anybody say anything about the Denon pair or if there are any others i should consider for the type of music i listen to?

The re0 just don't have enough bass for those genres

SQ? sure, they'll be better. Build quality? maybe not. The amount of stuff that Monster makes that falls apart outweighs almost all other companies combined.

Monster Turbines or Future Sonics Atrio X...both are fantastic for Hip Hop and Rap.  I've tried virtually every headphone under 150 for those genres and those are the two I've settled on, with the edge tot he Atrio X because they can be worn at the gym a little easier.  Deeper insertion and they are a bit lighter so they stay put with a lot of activity.

if you loved/missed beats tour flat cables you can consider a-Jays 2 or a-Jays 3 (just for it's flat cables)

 

but do note that these a-jays provide zero bass if compared to beats tour

Klipsch S4 or S5 will mop the floor with your broken Beats.

While its bass quantity is too much for most folks around here, it will be perfect for an ex-Beats owner / hip-hop&rap lover.

Better sound quality.

Better build quality and/or durability.

Better price.

Available with inline mic and iPod/iPhone controls.

 

It's also usually easy to find at local stores, so you can try them out before buying.

There's so many earphones out there how are you supposed to know which ones are the best without actually trying them out first -__-

At the moment i'm looking at the Fischer eterna & Future Sonics Atrio X.

 

Although I don't really have any idea if there are others which will be better.

Maybe you should stop by this thread - joker tries them all so you don't have to.
