Most under-rated headphones... - Page 12

post #166 of 315

FYI probably my favorite thread so far here on Headfi.. My wife and wallet do not thank you... 

 

I'll probably by buying the 

 

Koss UR40

 

AKG K240

 

JVC Harx700 (maybe) 

 

The JVC and Koss are super cheap on Amazon right now so what the heck, I'll probably waist $20 bucks on something much worst than a good set of cans I can use for Gaming and what ever. 

 

Thanks, you guy and gals are frigg'n awesome

Just tell them "that damned rat and his brood have been around for 80 years, they ain't dyin' anytime soon so shove it!"  Or the economy will pick up and you can afford both.  The problem there is that you'll be sneaking away from the family while they're stuck in line - complaining of indigestion or something - so that you can go back to the hotel to listen to the rig you cleverly hid in your luggage.

I think the new-series Philips headphones (the Fidelio L1 and Citiscape series) are becoming a lot more popular of late here. It is true, however, that there's a mental black against Philips here because they've never really shown a serious committment to entering into the audiophile headphone market until now.

Seems to me that they've hit the ground running. smily_headphones1.gif

I would be all over a closed version of the L1 with probably a little less bass.

It's also built with durability in mind, and looks great to boot! It's everything to Beats Pro should've been: a competitive, great-sounding professional headphone that pleases the ears of everyone who listens to it while retaining great design and construction. I can't believe it's not one of the highest-recommended cans on Head-Fi.

I wouldn't mind buying them but it is another headphone amazon feels warranted charging canucks over $500.00 for when it is only $300.00 in the USA.

It has pleather pads though and I only want new HP with velour pads because pleather makes me sweat.

I'm *mostly* trying to base the categories off of MSRP, not street, because street is volatile. J&R said their SRP is just over $300, so I went with that. redface.gif

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade here, and I DO understand the spirit of this thread, but the 2 headphones I ordered from Amazon here are going back.   It's my fault, really ..... I probably want to be shopping from the "Highly-Rated with Good Reason" thread !

 

To tell you the truth, I'm having a hard time beating the sound I get out of my amped (I know, sounds great unamped as well)  $42 Koss Porta-Pro!

Underrated are in my opinion these fine sounding headphones:

 

BeyerDynamic DT 150

GermanMAESTRO GMP 250

GermanMAESTRO GMP 8.300 D

The AKG K 314 buds; $10-30 if anywhere still sells them. I prefer them to the FOTM Yuin PK3 and am flabbergasted that AKG replaced them with the K 315 model (which I submitted to the 'worst headphones' thread).
