- I need On-the ear phones that are good on bass, light, comfortable and less than $100.
I'm not audio expert, but I've liked the Sony MDR-V300 I've used for many years. They're going to break soon and I need to get new phones.
Budget? Less $50 or nearby. I can do a $100 if its really good. I guess I use them so much so that's ok.
I like these companies: Sony, Panasonic, Phillips, JVC. I've had two bad experiences with Sennheiser and I'm open to buying them but I would have to test them first.
The kind of headphones I want are over the ear, so they're not earphones, or the circumaural ones where they cover the whole ear. It sits on the ear with a foam pad.
- Good on bass, and low bass. I don't like what I call "dirty bass", which means it lacks power at the lower end. I want bass that I can feel and hear. This is very important.
- Comfortable and light. Also important.
- Not too weak - they'll be used for a few years.
- Good reviews
On another note, I got these JVC earphones today for $25 shipped, the reviews were great (#1, if sorted by ratings):
I hope I like them. Another choice was this Sony one (#16) but some people didn't like the cord and it was $50, double the price.
Or should I just buy another Sony MDR-V300 because I've been satisfied with them, I don't know.
