Recommendations for good headphones around $100

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im a audio noob looking for some good IEMs or headphones for around $100, max is $120. I want headphones that sound great and balanced without bass overpowering mids or something like that. I think Thinksound ms01 is a good pair for $100 but I want to see what audiophiles think.

Any specific wants in terms of comfort, isolation, build, etc? Any specific genres you enjoy?

 

For 100, I really enjoy the HF5, PFE122, HA-FXD80, RE0s.

I want a headphone that sounds balanced and accurate. Im fine with passive or active noise cancellation as long as it isolates a good amount but not so much I can't hear important stuff. Also are ms01's good earbuds?

If you don't want total isolation, probably cross the HF5s out of the list. They were pretty along the lines of your sound preferences as well. Never heard the Thinksounds before. PFE122 and the JVCs would still be a good bet.
