What headphones should i get?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My Sennheiser hd 203's recently broke, and im looking for a new pair. my budget is around $50-100. so far, Ive looked at grado sr-60i and sr-80i's, audio technicha ath-ad700's, sennheiser hd 429's, superlux hd668b's, and akg k-240's. i listen to mostly hard rock, hip hop, and alt rock, but i listen to a little bit of everything really. i mostly care about sound quality over looks or build quality and i would prefer that they are circumaural or supra-aural rather than earbuds. what headphones should i get?

You can also consider the HD239 for your price range. They're pretty comfortable, and portable as well. The sound is a bit on the fun side, good for bass oriented or rock music.

Well from the list I think OP would prefer more treble than bass, so I'd recommend the K240, they're my favourite of the list. 

I do own a HD238 and if you're into the dark and warm signature it's a great little headphone.
