Best headphones for under 75

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello! So I'm thinking of buying my first higher quality headphones (currently using Xtreme Xplosives in ears, which are surprisingly good for 10 dollars), but they're getting uncomfortable, and I'm doing more mixing now so I need something clearer and more balanced. I've been researching headphones in the price range of up to 100, and it seems the more work I do the less clear it becomes on what to buy. The ones I'm thinking of now are the MDR-V6, AKG K240 (first version), and the Audio Technica ATH-M30. Is a step up (ATH-M50, Beyer) worth it? What are some good headphones in this price range? Oh also, I want these to listen to hip hop, R & B, and some folk, but mainly I'm going to be creating and mixing hip hop beats.

After doing a search, I'd say Koss Dj100 or ATH - M50. By all means, wait for more confirmation.

Defiantelly Audio Technica ATH - M50 is one of the best options you can find , however its out of your budget .

 

If you like something cheaper , I recommend : 

 

Sony MDR-V55

MDR-V6 sounds great, but may not have the bass impact you want. They have great detail though for the price. Sounds good for nearly every application and well built.

M50 and HD-280's great options too.

Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80) to me are great sounding headphones, usually sell for around $88, sometimes cheaper.
