Most under-rated headphones... - Page 13

Shure se315

 

Overshadowed by it's more expensive siblings pricewise and thus interest wise also, the shure se315 IMO sounds better than the 535.

If no one's mentioned them yet, Sony MDR-7506.  They're crazy-cheap, and if you like a bright, potentially sibilant, analytical headphone with excellent build quality and portability, it's fantastic.  It does get quite sibilant on some tracks, but so do Beyers and Grados, and it's neither completely circum or supra-aural.  But for the bargain-bin price they run, they're still quite excellent headphones, and are built like tanks.

Also, IEM - what's the non-proline model # for those? MDR-V ???

The GMP 250, GMP 8.300 D and the DT150 are roughly between 125,- and 150,- Euro.

Shure 315's are around £110 new I think

Underrated headphones, hmm... I can think of the midrange price range ($100-$300)

The Klipsh Image one cans are exceptionally good - extremely durable, relatively comfortable, somewhat good looking, decent isolation, and pretty nice sound, alike the Bowers & Wilkins p3 and p5's. So, in essence, they are what those horrible pieces of **** Beats should've been in the first place. Mainstream, brand name bling cans that are actually good. Plus they're cheap for their sound and work well on apple products. For the price range, they're the best out there considering all these terms:
- Looks
- Quality (Build and materials)
- Warranty (2 Years)
- Sound (On par with $180-$300 cans)
- Durability (although small and it doesn't seem like it, the cables are quite tough)

Of course you can get better sound for the same price, but what I'm saying is this is the best all-round package in its price range. I've had mine since their release (2010 I think) and haven't failed... also own Klipsch s4i earphones, ****ed up as hell aesthetically (my fault) since 2008, and they still work perfectly.

I always recommend Klipsch to all those beats-loving idiots, as they at least appeal a bit to them since they still look somewhat good.  Klipsch is truly underrated, in my opinion. Among the best build quality in the market.

Please not i'm not intending to sound like I suck klipsch's balls... I prefer Grado and Sennheisser, but hey, that's an entirely different price range. (Not necessarily but I hope you get my point). 

Good day to you people :3

The classic MDR-V6, but there's also a debate between "vintage" V6 and more modern V6 not being exactly the same, so it's a little more hairy to discuss V6 in absolute terms than the 7506.

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

That ca amazon link is not sold by amazon but some crack ass company with no inventory...

You can get them from B&H for $248... Landed here for me in NS with taxes & purolator ground shipping for $299 Complete! (No Duty on Most Headphones)

 

You need to get off the amazon stuff... tongue_smile.gif it's baaaaaad for your wallet!

I got like $175 US street and ~$250 MSRP, they're safely in the 101-300 category. redface.gif

I'll have to dig up those German Maestros in USD (while I could just convert Euros, I'm guessing it's not quite that simple rolleyes.gif).

IEM,

Alright, I gotcha. I just put the 7506, wasn't going to re-name them V6, but if they were known identical (like Z1000 and 7520) I'dve put AKA.

Yeah the two levels of confusion on 7506 versus V6 are the difference of the vintage models of V6 (that existed before the pro xxxx and consumer Vxyz schism separated them), and also the lack of consensus on if the drivers are tuned the same way for the 7506 and the V6.  Supposedly they're decidedly different, but I don't know that the manufacturer ever stated so.  Similar to K701 v K702 v Q701.  Many people are convinced of differences, measurements show differences, but officially the manufacturer refuses to comment.  So it's safest to treat the separately  7506 has always been 7506 without known changes.

RP-HTX7 is also a little bit underrated IMO. Nicely built, fun-sounding can and cheap too.
 

EDIT: Just thought of the KSC-75s as well, which is a steal IMO. They should be recommended a lot more.

Who makes RP-HTX? I know the KSC-75 are Koss. tongue.gif

Panasonic RP-HTX7 - those cool little retro cans. :) Anyone who wants a bassy, fun sound sig along with style should stray away from the likes of Beats, Wesc and Skullcandy and score a pair of these for $20-$30.

the German Maestro line is oft ignored, but deserves respect. They're all so durable and don't sound bad at all, either.

post #195 of 314

the ksc75 is not underrated imo, but i agree than the pannys are great for their price. i also like gmp160 (same as mbquart qp160) which is almost never mentioned in this forum. although they are open but they are more durable than the stretch
