Good Headphones for under 60 dollars?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I am in the middle of looking for my first actually good pair of headphones. I have been looking at some over the ear headphones for a while now, and I have come to a few choices so far, the Audio Technica ATH M35, the Sennheiser HD419, the Koss DJ Pro 100, and the Monoprice 8232 headphones. Can you tell me which one is better in terms of sound quality between the four? I am also looking for the following features:

 

-Minimum Noise Leakage

-Acceptable Highs 

-Easy to Drive (in case I use it on the go).

 

Can you tell me pair is better for those features, and if there is more out there, can you recommend me some?

I'd go with the panasonic htf-600 for about $30 shipped.

I heard these leak quite a bit though.

They are slightly open in a somewhat sneaky way. Not too bad on leakage though. There are others that isolate better.

Do you have any recommendations?

superlux hd662 or cad mh310 are closed and have much better isolation and highs than the panasonics.

Are they easy to drive on like an ipod or laptop, but can also sound good with a headphone amp?

Yes.

Alright, I looked at the Superlux HD662 a little bit more, and they seem to fit all of my needs. Thanks.

Comfort is an issue for some people, it also depends if you have a big head. tongue.gif

This is true. Not the greatest for multi hour listening. I am done after a couple of hours. I have never tried to stretch out the metal bands though and some say that helps.
