Headphones for under $80 - Page 2

post #16 of 20

JVC HA-RX700 is quite good for gaming. Sounds pretty good for music also although it seems to be more expensive now than before.

Alright, these look pretty nice and are at a good price: http://www.amazon.com/Shure-SRH750-DJ-Headphones-Black/dp/B002PAQYK8/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

 

Does anyone know how they are (quality, bass, gaming, etc)

Wow, they've really shot up in pricing! I guess people have caught onto their quality; I distinctly remember getting them for $35 about two years ago.

So does anyone have the Shures? I am really considering them for gaming but also music.

the shures sit on your ear, not around them. imo, this is uncomfortable. regardless, theyd probably sound great for what youre looking for. you can see the bass has a hump , and rolls off at a higher point. also in the mids they dont drop like the other phones, so they will still be very clear and bright. and im sure they are tuned enjoyably, thyre a dj phone and its shure :)

graphCompare.php?graphType=0&graphID[]=353&graphID[]=2191graphCompare.php?graphType=0&graphID[]=2191&graphID[]=2821&graphID[]=2361&graphID[]=2631

see how the grado are very bright. also they dont have the hd448 there, so i put in a 518

 

its funny becuase you want globs of bass impact for your music, dubstep, but for gaming many times if the bass is too much or no speedy controlled and textured, it will get in the way of hearing footstep and gunshot positions.

 

id say stay away from the cad MH310, they clamp on your head very tightly, but they are great headphones. theyre rebranded superlux 662f if im correct. do note the one that the guy suggested is a different one, but its open and is a monitor, so i still think stay away from that

 

you dont want a flat more "boring" colorless sound like a monitor, or on the other hand a sound like the grado becuase theyre very bright, energetic, in your face, midcentric

the sony mdrv6,senn hd280pro, kns 6400 are also monitors, and may not suit you. the senn may, it has a boosted low end, but they clamp very tightly, which i personally dont like 

 

i think senn has a good sound signature for what you want theyre darker more laid back "warmer" probably better for your music and gamging as well. lots of bass but its tight and clean checkout the hd448. if you can do open can, check the hd518.

 

also good, like already suggested for you would be the creative aurvana live, JVC HARX700(these are currently the best jvc offers), koss djpro100(these look great for you!). panasonics best headphone is the Technics RP-DH1200, but they are $100, and they might sit on your ear, not sure.

 

the audio technica ath ad500, but are open back. if you want a closed audio technica go with ATH-M40fs, but they are monitors and not sure you would like the sound. the next step up from them is the ath a700, but theyre $100.

 

ive only heard very few of these cans, but with the help of some very intelligent people on this fourm these seem to be the trends

 

if you have a question about one of them specifically, i suggest you ask and im sure someone more experienced than me can answer

good luck
