Monoprice 8323 Good for My Needs?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

First off, I'm completely new to this forum and headphones in general, so my apologies if my post makes no sense or if its in the wrong place.

 

I've been scouting for a headphones <$30 that will fit my needs of:

-Music listening (emphasis on pop/dance/electronic, but I want headphones that are good with everything)

-Playing a digital piano (obviously with headphones plugged in) and playing cello by ear

-Audio production and editing (through Audacity and similar programs)

 

FYI, playing cello by ear means I listen to a recording and play along with it.

 

Will the Monoprice 8323 fit my needs? If not, what will? I want the best value possible.

 

Thanks

I think for your budget, Monoprice (8323) is your only choice.

If you're OK with semi-open cans, I go with the Superlux HD 681 Dynamic Semi-Open Headphones.

What if I raised the bar to $40?

The next break point is about $50, where you can pick cans like the Superlux HD668B Dynamic Semi-Open Headphones and Samson RH600.

What about the Incipio Forte F38 and and the JVC RX700?

 

If those two aren't good for my needs, I'll go ahead and get the Monoprice.

How do the HD 428 compare to the Monoprice 8323?

I have heard many Senns from their budget cans to the HD 600/650, but not the 428.  However, I can tell you that none of the Senns I have heard since the early 1970's are as colored as the Monoprice.   The Monoprice delivers a wide frequency range for such an affordable can, but its sound is way out of balance from neutral.
