Both are decent and well under your budget.
 

 

They are cheap, but a bit difficult to find in China. And I found a review in Chinese, the editor found the material is iron and become rusted in a short time.

Go for the Alessandro MS-1.

 

It's like Grados, but ships for 99 USD to anywhere.

They are much cheaper than the HD448 + shipping.

Superlux is made in Taiwan, so go to their Taiwan web site, they have a list of who sells their headphones in China.

Superlux are mostly plastic, very little metal and none of it is iron, so no rust.

Good call on the Superluxes. It's in the same region at least.  Don't forget that the HD662 series is a closed back as well so no sound leakage.

Good luck with your headphone purchase!

China is big.

 

You can't just go to the website to find who sells Superluxes.

 

Chances are they're all in beijing or something.

 

Being a relatively new product, I don't think they'll be in too many stores.

 

 

 

Isn't there like a taobao site, like a Chinese ebay? Better off getting headphones

 

from there than shipping them in.

Go to their website.  Here is the Chinese distributor http://www.superlux.com.tw/distributors.do?kindtype=0001  with phone # and email etc.

Buying headphone on Taobao? I doubt it. Lots of clone ones.

they will meet all your requirements and be good for gaming.

 

Grado Sr80i next, but not so good for gaming or pop

 

JVC HARX900 are next. Good for gaming and some music, but need a good source if you don't already have a amp.

 

Don't buy a amp! It's a waste of money if it's your first headphone to buy a amp for them.


I'm looking at ATH-M50(s) now(I have raised my buget a bit), any sound quality difference between M50 and M50s, and how about Shure SRH840?

And I don't want to buy a amp, at least now.

There was just a thread here that the guy bought them for $88

 

ATH-A900 on amazon for $113. Good for music and gaming.

The AD900 are great for gaming but are good for classical. There's not much bass compared to the A900



WTH? Why would you buy an Audio Technica M50 for more than $100? The Ultrasone HFI-580 is a better headphone at $120.
