Headphones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, i'm looking for headphones for the pc, my budget is about 120-150$, I heard that the GRADO-SR80i are very good, but the bass is weak a little bit in the grado series, I'm listening to electronic music a lot so, a lack of bass might be a problem for me.
So which headphones would you reccomend me?

Well, sort of a 'mainstream' opinion would be the Audio Technica M50's, they work very well, a lot of bass, and are ~$150 depending on where you get them, the color, and cable you get. There are also M-Audio Q40's which are said to have great bass.

 

If you don't plan on getting an amp at all, then the Crossfades are slightly over your budget, but still nice sounding unamped.

Also, you can check out (portable) amps in the other forum sections if you'd like, adds a few extra things to the sound of your headphone and aren't super expensive.

Heya,

 

At that price range, I would go for a closed back headphone for your genre(s) as it will provide more low end ability.

 

Closed backs:

 

Beyer DT770

Brainwavz HM5

Ultrasone HFI 580

M-Audio Q40

Philips Uptowns

 

Open air:

 

Samson SR850

Goldring DR150

Fischer Audio FA002

Sony MA900 (over budget, but worth it)

 

Very best,
