Advice for $80-130 headphone

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi I am looking to buy a new headphone for mobile device (walkman z1050). 
Right now, I use Sennheiser Hd 598 at home, but it's too big for outdoor. 

It aslo has a open design, so I cant listen to music with it at library


I tried Bose AE2 before I received my HD 598. 
I really like AE2's comfort level, and its sound was good imo. 
I do some research, and it seems like Bose's headphones are overpriced for its sound quality.
I am worried that since my ears are used to HD 598 now, and I might not be satisfied with AE2 anymore.

To me, comfort is the most important thing for a headphone, sound quality is next, then price, look is the last.

I am looking for lightweight phone, anything under 200g around $80-130 USD.


Are there any other on ear or over ear headphones in the market that I should check out? thanks
