Yes. This is a bitter sweet treat. I have two 50$ best buy gift cards that are starting to show some age, and I dont really like having my gift cards expire, nor them collect dust or worsen the power-to-weight ratio of my house in the event that a hurricane comes and throws my house far far away like in the wizard of oz, so I want the power to weight ratio to be good so that my house gets flinged really far and-
God I have some ADD sometimes.
ANYWAY. Yeah, I got 100$ for best buy only, as people say, it's "burning a whole in my pocket", and it needs to go.
So I sifted through all the crap Best Buy has and have come to a shortlist of the potentially decent ones they have, hope someone can reccomend a few of em! (btw, tax is included, so if you're gonna suggest two to me, then at 13% for Canada :D)
Also, just so y'all know, I like the sound of my V6s. Thats the sound signature I like. Flat, analytical, clear as a bell, a nice revealing brightness, yet with a nice bass to it. So here goes!
Audio-Technica Headphones (ATH-M35) - 79.99
Panasonic Monitor Headphones (RPHTX7K) - 86.99
Sennheiser Headphones (PX 90) - Black - 63.99
Sennheiser DJ/Studio Headphones (HD2020II) - 69.99
Sennheiser Over-the-Head Headphones (HD 428) - 99.99
Pioneer On-Ear DJ Headphones (SE-MJ21-K) - 49.99
Pioneer On-Ear DJ-Inspired Headphones (SE-MJ31) - 69.99
Sony Headband Headphones (MDRZX100B) - Black - 49.99 (I THINK I heard these before and thought they were the most lifeless pieces of plastic and metal ever. It might've been a similar-looking pair... Would have ot go back to the Sony store to verify)
Sony Headband Headphones (MDRZX500B) - 69.99
Sony Headband Headphones (MDRZX300B) - 44.99
Sony Traditional Headband Headphones (MDR-XD100) - 34.99 (I THINK I heard these too. They were okay... Nothing special. Again, would have to go back to the Sony Store to verify)
So I know theres really not a whole lot of quality stuff there, but its something from that list, or just some sub-100$ digital camera. Either or are fine with me :) Sorry about throwing so many potentially garbage headphones on the list, I havent heard much when it comes to Pioneer and Panasonic or Audio-Technica, and even with sony and Sennheiser, I dont have a crystal clear memory for their lower-end stuff.
Edit: Also should mention that Shure 750DJs were almost 180$ and there were absolutely zero good MDR's (to my knowledge) on the list... Just plain: Wtf?
