Looking for new on-ear headphones.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Ive decided that Im going to buy a pair of On-Ear style headphones for portability, to be worn while on the bus/travelling around town. Unfortunately I am attempting to save my money to buy a new laptop, so my budget is gonna have to stay at below $100. 

 

I listen to mostly dubstep, some metal and rock mixed in with a bit of country and other random genres. 

 

Ive already looked a lot into the Noontec Zoro, I like the removable cable alot, enables me to use my V-MODA cables with them to get the control talk features. The folding/overall portability is also to my liking, but I do not like the soft pouch style case they come with. If Anything I can probably just put them in my LP2 case and it should work fine, but if there is a similar headphone that comes with a hard case I would like to see it.

 

Open to suggestions, please.

Why not sell the LP2s and get the M80s?

Just because of this line no one will reply.

 

People on this website usually don't pay attention of how it looks, but how it sound.  If you want a pair of decent headphones around your price range: audio technica ath-m50, they are always at good price on amazon.

Im quite happy with the bass-heavy orientation of my LP2s, I am one of those people that could be called a bass-head. Ive heard that the M80 isnt very big on bass, nor is it great comfort wise without a lot of break it. Whereas the Zoro's are said to have very rich clean sounding, tight, bass. 

 

I have also gone over my 60 day test drive for my LP2s so selling them would only get me around $100, versus the $200 Ive paid for them, on top of the $45 custom shields, and the $15 single button cable.

As for this, style isnt the greatest thing I really care about, I just felt the need to add that. If I had the money I would go around buying models such as Sennheiser HD 598 or Grado, they arent the best looking but I dont really care. Dont know as I added the style factor, I should probably just remove it.

 

As for the ATH-M50 I am looking for a pair of on-ear, not another over-ear.

Get IEMs: Shure se215. Bass heavy and excellent noise isolation, portability and so on.

I have Klipsch Image X10s.

 

Sorry for putting you guys down when you are trying to help, Im aware you are trying to help but Ive mentioned On-Ear, the only two suggestions Ive gotten were Over-Ear and In-Ear....

Bump, also pretty much decided I no longer care what they look like, people around my school already think I look creepy, maybe I can cast some good audio onto them if they ask, Im only there for an hour anyways.

Dude, don't talk about yourself in that way. 

 

Nothing at that price range will be significantly better than the LP2, so no improvements whatsoever.

Besides, those look badass enough. Wait a year at least before updating gear, you might be able to raise more money.

The reason I want some cheaper portable headphones is because of the area I walk through while in town. Typical downtown area, not the best neighborhoods, sketchy people, high crime rate, the works. This is the reason I bought the Klipsch Image X10s but Ive come to realize that the cable is so thin that I may break it while at work. Thus Im looking at some semi-cheap on ears. 

 

As Ive said I looked into Noontec Zoros quite a bit, using them will allow me to wear them under my hood while walking because of their size. It will also give me an opportunity to teach some beats users.
