Advice on Headphones in the ~$50 range?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello;

 

I am currently looking for some headphones to use when I want to play my guitar but can't have my amp blasting through the house. I would preferably like to end up using them as my go to headphones for music as well though, as I don't have anything better than cheap stock earbuds.

 

For music, I mainly listen to different types of rock; and as for my amp, I generally use distortion to achieve a metal sound.

 

These are the headphones I've been considering:

 

Sennheiser HD 202 II - $20

Sennheiser HD 203 - $30

Sennheiser HD 428 - $50

Sony MDR-XB500 - $50

JVC HARX700 - $40

Audio-Technica ATH-M30 - $40

 

I'm currently leaning towards the ATH-M30's, but figured I would seek some advice from you guys before making a purchase.

 

Thanks

Heya,

 

XB500's with equalized mids/highs would be my choice out of your list.

The JVC would be my second choice.

The others, I just wouldn't bother with.

 

And above all of them, I'd suggest the Panasonic RP-HTF600.

 

Very best,
