Lookin for sub $50 headphones - Page 3

post #31 of 43

Technical Pro HPT990 (Takstar Hi2050), come with decent Velour ear pads.

They are semi-open headphones and cost $44.99 at J&R.

Also i dont want clip ons or on ears or whatever purple angel said. I want over ear headphones and the panasonics sound great (not literally, ive never heard them) i have no idea how good the koss headphones are, but just based on the fact that they are clip ons, i dont want them

I'm going to say the Panasonic RP-HTF600-S for home use and the Monoprice listed above if portability is a concern.


Yep, hard to beat the Panasonics 600's or Monoprice for less than $50.

and also please take the posts here with some salt (including this one)

The Technical Pro HPT990 are over ear headphones.

I think you may have misunderstood.  He said that they were semi-open, meaning that the ear cups are not fully closed.  It's still a full sized headphone, it just leaks a fair bit of sound and has a wider soundstage compared to a closed backed headphone.

 

These articles may help you if you are unfamiliar with terms regarding audio.

That aside, I would recommend the Panasonics as well.  The Sony XB500 isn't a bad choice either.

thank you but i have one more question, is it meant to be like that or does it just have bad isolation?

Semi-open (&open) headphones are not designed for isolation, but semi-open & open usually gives better audio quality (but there are some good sounded closed headphones).

So the only reason you would really buy closed headphones is to block your headphones noise from others around you or to block outside noise from bothering you.

yep, the panasonic uptowns would be a good choice w/ a little portable amp just improve sound ¡

For around 50 dollars I really like the Beyerdynamic dt235..

For under $50.00 I really like the Koss PortaPro headphones.  I also own the Monoprice headphones and find the sound quality of the PortaPro to be much better.
