Sennheiser, JVC, or Koss?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm new to Head-Fi after stumbling upon it while looking for a new pair of headphones. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone could please help me out.


First off, I am on a college student budget, and I'd prefer not to spend more then $30-$35. As for usage, I plan on using my headphones with my iPhone 4S and my MacBook Pro. Also, I listen mainly to rock, and occasionally, pop and rap. Overall, I'd prefer something durable and portable.


Now, after doing some research, I have narrowed it down to the Sennheiser HD 201, the Sennheiser HD 200 II, and the JVC HARX500. Also, even though it's not a full-size, I was wondering how the three aforementioned headphones compare to the Koss KSC75?

I keep going back and forth between these four after reading countless reviews, and I was wondering if I could receive some direct suggestions/opinions on them. I'm of course open to suggestions/opinions about other headphones within my budget.



Thank you very much in advance for your help!

I have tried the sennheiser hd200ii and for the price the sound is pretty good. But looking at the JVC HARX500, there seems to be a lot of good reviews. So it really narrows to personal opinion. If possible see if you could borrow a pair or try either one at a store.

Thank you for your reply! I ended up purchasing the Sennheiser and the Koss for separate purposes.
