Looking for some good small but budget headphones

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello

I sadly lost my PMX60 so I'm looking for some new headphones. Now, I like behind the neck but let's give all headphones (NO EARBUDS/IEM) a try this time around. My budget is low (less than 100 bucks) but I will look into something that is intresting . I listen to hip-hop on a mobile phone. I need open ear. They have to be small to fit in your standard outter coat pocket. These will be out on the street so I dont want it to be cheap that it breaks when a little rain is dropped nor do I want it to be so expensive that it hurts if it breaks. I like to be able to understand the vocals while having a good bass and high volume.

Recomendations?

Thanks

That's because they are from the 80's. I think they were first introduced in 1984.

Just consider them retro-cool.

Heya,

 

You need open air on-ear's for walking around on the street? Not a lot of those exist. Most on-ear headphones are not open air. Grados are. But you're going to find a lot more closed back on-ears. So depending on your needs, look at the Grado SR60i and SR80i with L-cush pads. For closed back, look at the AudioTechnica ES7 or maybe AKG Q460.


Very best,
