Best headphones on a $100 budget

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey, I'm looking into nice headphones that I can get for 100 dollars. I'm aware that I won't be able to get my hands on a really nice pair because i only have 100 bucks but I'll settle for the best that I can get. As of right now, I am looking into the Sony MDR XB500 headphones and the Sennheiser HD280 headphones, both have really good reviews online and I can't decide between the two so some input would be nice. If you know about another pair of headphones that are really good for 100 then that's fine too. Thanks in advance! :]

 

 

P.S. I usually listen to electronic, indie rock, and sometimes dubstep and for that reason I'm looking into some headphones with really good bass but nice highs and lows as well

sennheiser hd 25-1 ii is a decent pair of headphones for a little higher than your price.

Bass ----> Aiaiai Tracks..

 

I have the tracks, and the Sony XB700

tracks have the better bass impact..  its not even close...

 

they also have the 'open' feeling despite being a closed back headphone...  and have better clarity on the treble

Save $30 more and get the XB700. They are very good at dubstep and they love being amped as well so you can squeeze more boom.
