Best $200 headphones/IEMs for mp3 players, this is a gift

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Last minute gift ideas, literally, I would like to have this ordered by tomorrow morning. I would like to be able to order this through Amazon.

 

So yeah, $200 best all around sound. This will be driven by some kind of mp3 player. Most likely an iPod.

 

The Beyer T50p is on the top of my list so far. I took of the Denon D1100 because he is not a bass head.

 

Any ideas?

Unless he actually cares about sound like most people here, I would actually get him some Beats. If he had any sort of sense of decent music, I wouldn't recommend the Beats, but you and I both know that people go totally bonkers over the B on them.  If he doesn't know much about sound, or he doesn't already know how bad Beats are, I would actually buy him them. He'll go bonkers. ( as long as he doesn't have an ear for sound )

Uhh, the T50p gets a lot of bad reviews. I tried them when they came out, and I didn't hate them, but just found them totally "meh".


You sure you're not thinking of the DT1350 instead? They look very similar.

He cares. He's a Hifi speaker guy. I want to get him something decent since he travels a lot. I think he would hate me if I bought him Beats, haha.

I think I did get confused with those DT1350 cause I got it from the review thread that had the 96~ reviews.

 

 

Back to the drawing board.

You can't go wrong, really.
