So what are the latest budget headphones people are fawning over?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 

I like checking out budget headphones from time to time and this place always has a set that people are hyping to the moon and back, was just curious what the latest was.  The last set I bought was the Panasonics from last year that were 30 or so on amazon, what have I missed and what is new?

I'd like to add the Takstar HI2050 (~$55 usd) punches way above its price range, they sound fantastic.

The Somic MH463 and EFI82 have also been getting some buzz.

I'm definitely "fawning" over the Beyerdynamic DT 235. ;) Their sound quality is extremely impressive compared to others at that price, IME.

 

The JVC HA-S400 and particularly the HA-S500 are very popular around here ATM.

How do those JVC's compare to the HARX700's?

Sorry I don't have experience with either. You might want to checkout this thread:

Somic EFi-82 MT.

Good luck getting a pair, but as someone who has owned many FOTMs, this is the most overacheiving $40 headphone I have ever used.

Why good luck?  I did a google and the first few links are sites selling them for sub 50

Also, the Monoprice 8232 or something like that.

Those are all from China from 3rd party aliexpress.com sellers, some people are weary. I wouldn't hesitate to order one if I was interested. Would probably take a while to arrive though.

EDIT: Nevermind, that and the other listing I found have 5 piece minimums. They're probably pretty hard to get ahold of after all.

I think that that's the minimum to get the discounted bulk price. I've never used Aliexpress, though.
