entry level headset.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, I have been on the prowl for a decent headset to buy that I can use for travel (don't need to be collapsible). I'd prefer if they were closed back. I currently own and AKG k240 mk II as my main headset at home. I'd like to find something of equal or greater quality I'm currently hunting on Ebay so any names/ideas would be nice. i'm not looking for anything to fancy and i'm not a bass head.

Currently im watching an AKG 301, AKG k105, HD 555(will probably be out of my pricerange soon), HD 449, HD 495, EH 2270. IF any of these are complete junk please tell me so i can mark them off my list because they pop up alot

I forgot to mention my genre's i listen to pink floyd, the clash, greenday, some videogame scores, metal bands, lynyrd skynyrd, and some softer rock. occasionaly i stray to one or 2 exceptional mainstream songs but very rarely

Another vote for KRK KNS 8400s!
