**Best HP's for the money**

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 

Of course this is certainly debatable but I thought it might be interested to list some common price points and list the hp that you feel is the best dazzle for the dollar at that respective price point. I know that similar things have been done here in the past but maybe a refresh would be nice and helpful to some.

 

$100

 

$200

 

$300 Maddogs

 

$400 He400

 

$500

 

Feel free to make additions or add comments if you like...

Most headphones these days seem to be overpriced. Sennheiser and Shure now think every headphone they release is worth $300 despite how bad it sounds.

I guess AKG and V-Moda now does this too. $300 is the magic number. And to think people say Bose is so evil for selling a headphone for $150.

 

The only really good deals to me were the Koss Pro DJ100 ($80), K240 Studio ($99) and AKG Q701 ($235).

You know, it's quite impressive how I can attach a $80 headphone like the DJ100 up to my main setup after listening to the Q701 or HD-650 and not be disgusted. I mean it doesn't sound any worse.

The DJ100 does like 90% of what the 650 is capable of (on the same exact setup). The HD-650 is just more comfortable, has a larger soundstage and is less fatiguing.

 

I also once scored the HD-580 for $150. HD-580 for $150 is a steal! It even sounds better than the HD-600 (IMO). Shouldn't really count though.

 

The old Maxell DHP-II for $30 was once the best sounding headphones under $75 easily. Too bad it's now so hard to find. It's extremely fragile though.

$100 AudioTechnica M50
$200-300 Denon AH-D2000
$300-400 HE400

Denon are flogs. They charge over $500 for the D2000 in Australia.

post #9 of 43

For $100 and below its hard to say, there are many good options. (Jvc, superlux, Maxell, Panasonic, M audio, and others)

 

The Mad dogs are highly recommended, but haven't had the chance to try frown.gif

You can get them internationally shipped from eBay for around $290. It is used, of course. But they seem to be in great shape nonetheless.

But why should I have to buy something used for the same price people pay in the US brand new? Also they don't ship outside US anyways.

Hilarious, $849 for a D5000, keeping in mind AUD > USD (approximately $885 USD)

I don't think the D2000 counts anymore, they're just really darn expensive, even for a used pair.

500$ - LFF Paradox, no contest

post #14 of 43

Doesn't the Paradox have a bit of controversy on Head-Fi? I hear some people say they're great, but others not liking it. I hear that availability can be an issue with that mod, too.

post #15 of 43

Don't know if I'd say they are the best, but in the $200 and below price point the K271's are a very strong contender. Very well rounded with an excellent mid range, and some pretty fantastic isolation.
