im looking at the 1002 which are $100 same as philips downtown. which do you think is better for my needs?

 I'm also fairly young, at 15. And I know this isn't true for everyone at this age-range, but you're probably going to want something slightly stylish? Lot's of the suggestions you'll get on head-fi will be, put nicely, somewhat clunky or obtrusive. So, if you do wish to wear these at school/ in public without any chance of mockery, I would probably recommend the M80s. They look better than beats (and definitely sound better from my 30 second demo, and everything else I've heard about them), and you'll get amazing music without getting picked apart ;) Hey, kids can be mean.

Yeah, i am looking for something that i wont be completly embarrased to wear anywhere becides in my house, and m80? those are by v-moda correct?

What dose everyone think of the downtowns? i like them but do they meet the things im asking for in a headphone?

post #50 of 123

I really have a feeling you would like the M80s. Downright sexy in my opinion, with sound that can live up the looks. I would recommend discussing it with other people though.

 

 

-extra bass for the beat but not so much it makes everything sound deep- I'm not exactly sure what you mean by too deep, but the bass on these is fast, and powerful without being overpowering and muddy. Nice upperbass punch from what I've heard.

 

-even, clear highs and mids- This is coming from a guy with a 30 second, interrupted experience with these, but from what I've read, they seem to fit the part. Nice midrange.

 

-comfy- Fairly comfortable. Depends on length of use?

 

-stylish- Incredibly 

 

-I would really like a play/pause control too- Play/Pause control included! It's your lucky day.

 

-block out some noice for car rides- Not too sure... Checking on their website leads me to believe there's at least some level of noise isolation, BLISS technology apparently..

 

-oh, and not ear buds *etc- Not earbuds.

 

-will get pretty loud- Can stand high volumes.

 

-UNDER $150!!- Not under 150 :`( But worth the money. Super solid build, detachable cables, etc, etc.

 

Go for it buddy.

do not have it but demoed it before in stores, sound quality was not bad. fast powerful bass with clear mid, dont really remember the high that much. i remember it sounded pretty good for its price to my ears. and its fairly loud, you dont need an amp to boost the volume, an ipod is enough to drive it. it may or may not sound better with an amp, that i wouldnt know from demoing the headphone in a store for a few mins.

I'm kind of interested in what people have to say about the Downtowns as well.  The number of reviews for them is somewhat lacking.

post #56 of 123

If it were me, I wouldn't go for the Aviators. I actually had a chance to demo a well broken-in pair for a fair amount of time. They get a lot of attention because they're not terrible, which is a shock for a pair of skull candies, but "not terrible" doesn't necessarily mean good. There's a lot better you can get for just a little bit more money.
