HM5 or some other choices

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So im looking for a headphone under $150 in US. I'm a noob in the audio field and i really dont know anything about what makes a good headphone and what is best for what i need. That's why i am asking for help here.

My main use of this headphone would be for monitoring,listening to hip-hop/R&B and games like BF3 and CSGO. I dont listening to dub step or heavy metal or rock, so i guess I'm not that concerned with the bass. I've seen alot of people saying that HM5 is a more neutral headphone. it can be used for many different genre and still sound nice. Yet, idk if it is fit for monitoring or gaming. could someone give me some suggestion or advice for my need. thanks for helping: )

The Brainwave HM5/FA-003/Jaycar headphones do have a clear sound, but are kind of bass light, I never use my HM5 anymore.

 

Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80) closed headphones, $80.
