I bought myself a pair of ViSang R01 almost a year ago (which I wouldn’t have found and bought if it weren’t for the head-fi community’s opinions and joker’s reviews so I want to say thanks to everyone!) and I couldn’t have been happier, granted I was coming from using cheapie $10 pair of headphones I had owned and would go out and easily replace when needed, so I didn’t have much to compare them to. Problem was that because I was coming from headphones which were so easily replaced, I never learned to treat my headphones properly and my poor R01s broke within a few months of having them (if they even lasted that long). My not so great soldering job left them very very fragile, so since then I have learned to treat headphones differently.
So now that it has been almost a whole year, I was looking at getting a new pair of headphones, and I was planning on investing a bit more to get a nicer pair this time (that I will hopefully treat better than the last pair). I loved the sound that came from my R01s quite a bit, and I listen to anything from classic rock up to hard rock/heavy metal. Only thing that I noticed a bit more on the slower songs is that personally I felt these headphones could have given me a bit more detail so that is what I am hoping for in this next pair. I have been looking through more of joker’s reviews and have narrowed it down to 5 headphones, and I was hoping that again, I would be able to get the Head-fi community’s opinion on which would be the best. If there are any others that you think would suit me, please feel free to mention them too, but I am trying to keep it under about $60.
So far I am looking at:
Thanks for giving your opinion everyone, and I definitely hope I will enjoy these buds as much as the last (or more, more would be nice too)
