Which one is a better buying option: Audio Technica ATH-AD300 or SkullCandy SkullCrushers?

Hi guys,

 

I am looking for decent pair of headphones with a budget upto 4k. I did some research, created a list and came down to this two models; Audio Technica ATH-AD300 and  Skullcandy Skullcrushers. Right now, I am slightly more biased towards AD300 because of Open Air concept. I have never heard one before, looks very promising to me. I would like to know your views on this..

 

Thanks

Those are two totally different headphones.  One is so focused on bass that it even has built-in vibrators to simulate bass pressure.

Not sure what you mean by budget up to 4k... assuming it's below $100, there are still many impressive headphones in that range. But the skullcrushers aren't one of them.

      Ya, I know. I read the CNET reviews that skullcrushers aren't that bassy as the other variants from Skullcandy.

      I was just checking an online shopping website for headphones under my budget, found these ones from that

      list...

      Thanks for the reply. Sorry for the pricing part, it is actually in Indian Rupee. After going through Audio Technica

      series reviews, I am now thinking about Open Air headphones, as I said before, haven't heard it before, it

      would really be a different experience altogether. I have my laptop for the bassy sound. Are their any other

      headphones around that range? My budget should actually come around $80 - $85. I am resisting going

      beyond that, as this is just my initial purchace in this segment, will buy something good in the future.
