Good headphones around $50? / Are the Shure 550DJs good?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

What are some good over, or on ear headphones around $50 sold on any of these sites?

futureshop.ca

bestbuy.ca

axemusic.com

 

I am looking for headphones that are well balanced, but with powerful, but not overpowering bass.

 

 The 2 that I am most insterested in right now are the JVC xtreme xsplosives in ear, and the Shure 550 DJs. I am learning more towards the Shures. I can get a pair of Shure 550 DJs for $65 (refurbished), and there is a 3 month warranty, so i'm not worried. How do the Shure 550s sound? I can not find many reviews on the. I can only find like 5 reviews on amazon, and none anywhere else. Also how are the JVC's? I've heard some good reviews, but also some saying they have a lot of bass, and are bad in the mids, and highs. Are the Shures worth the normal $100 price?

I think DUNU Trident is bang for the buck. Probably one of the best in SUB $50. Pretty balance with a little lean to bass.  Hope it helps you.

Heard some good things about the Koss DJ100's and the JVC HAR900 (modded) but haven't heard them personally. What kind of music do you like to listen to?

Forgot to add that both of those are in that price range. You should be able to search those in head fi search and find out more.

I will actually go a little higher. $70 tops. I'm now reading reviews for Senheiser HD 202s. I'm sure those are more popular on this forum than the other 2. Do any of you think Senheiser HD 202s are worth $70?

For that kind of money you're better off looking at Koss Pro DJ100.
