post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I'm looking to purchase over the ear headphones before the year is over and I need everyone's help.  My only decent earphones have been se215s but now I want to get over the ear headphones.  My budget is $300 but I'm williing to spend more.  I like to listen to rap/dubstep/trance/hip hop/ a little bit of everything.  What headphones should I consider?


Thanks and Happy Holidays!

What sources are you plugging the headphones into?

Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80) closed headphones, sell for around $85.

and a Fiio E07K ($89) portable DAC and headphone amplifier, to make sure your getting the best out of any headphone.

The E07K's amp (but not DAC) can be used with the iPhone (need Fiio L cable, $10) and the E07K can use both it's DAC & amp. with the laptop (USB connection).

update.. basically I'm stilling looking for over the ear headphones in the $300 range.  I have a $150 amazon gift card that I can use towards this purchase. 

 

Here are come headphones that I'm considering.

bose quietComfort 15
sennheiser hd600
sennheiser momentum
v moda m100
sony mdr 1r

 

Most likely I'll probably end up with the M100s.

I ordered the M100s because I like how rugged they are as I'm going to use them for working out, etc.
