I am considering buying these headphones. I will not buy a pair of headphones that are more than $45. The first review shown in the link above gives a very detailed review. The guy sounds like a pro, and he has me leaning on purchasing these.
I am not an audiophile, so I cannot give great detail as to what exactly I like to hear in my headphones. I was in BestBuy today hoping to purchase some, but the only ones I could purchase in my range were not "sample-able."
The HF I liked in BestBuy:
-- Phillips SHL5905BK/28 -- isolated the sound very well, seemed to deliver flat yet clear and crisp sound
-- SOUL by Ludacris SL150BW High-Definition On-Ear Headphones -- seemed bright with crisp highs, which I did find appealing, but is not a requirement
I love the whole noise cancelling idea, so I would like my headphones to block (seal) most of the outside noise. I do not want it to have that breathable mesh crap for the pad around the ears. Bright or flat is much better than bass heavy. I am not looking for super bass headphones. I want either all flat or bright with average everything else (if that makes sense).
I want some insight on the MDR-XD200s and would definitely take suggestions on other HF to look at. Remember, NO MORE than $45.
Thanks in advance for all who respond and help me out! I am new to the HF buying world.
