Best portable and home use headphones for $200 or less?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I would like to pick up a pair of headphones for home and public use. I need closed back, noise cancelling would be good.

I have been deciding between the Shure SRH840, ATH-M50, and Logitech UE 6000

I like more than average bass, but I also need that treble balance. Hip hop is my most listened to genre, followed by electronic, rock/indie and a mix of hard, soft, and alternative rock. Like I said, I enjoy the bassy balanced sound. Any reccomendation welcome in $200 price range.

i bought the limited editions but there is no difference in sound quality...i just bought it for the silver colour!lol

Never gotten a chance to try them. How comfortable are they? I've heard tons of great things about them

I wouldn't recommend them. I haven't tried them, but, I have heard that they are over hyped by a lot of experienced people here. Now I would recommend the Beyerdynamic DT770 32 ohms version.

I was considering those headphones for home use. But I need I pair I could enjoy using at home, use in public, and easily store away. Those things are huge!

Then maybe the Shure SRH840's? But be warned the headband is known to crack(the part that holds the headband)

DT770s 80 ohm or Custom One Pros could be great for portable use.

i dont agree with the dt880s but yea the custom one pros would be also great fro portable use and just use at home

If you do get the M50s, make sure you get the normal coiled cable version...the straight cable is very long and I imagine will be unconfortable if you use them while traveling

Ah yes, I would recommend the KRK KNS 8400. Look at this: http://www.head-fi.org/t/638727/is-this-a-brilliant-bad-or-horrible-idea/15#post_8914507

I Guess I should rule the SRH840s out of the question. I would have to look into those KRK KNS 8400s. The price is tempting.

Those are interesting. Never seen the Custom One Pros before.

The KRK have a flat frequency response, not a good idea if you love bass.
