Best $100 or less portable headphones?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any opinions on the best $100 or less portable headphone I can use on airplane flights?

I prefer on-ear due to smaller size, but will consider over-ear if they are compact.

 

I not a bass head, and prefer clean, detailed and crisp sounding headphones that are true to the music being played.

 

 

thanks!

you will have to use an in-ear for flights . I am unaware of any on-ears giving such high amount of isolation

etymotic hf5, shure se 215, klipsch x10 might be a few

Hi!

 

The UE4000 are exactly what you need!

Does anyone know how the UE4000 compares to the Creative Aurvanna Live headphones?

 

Amazon has the Creative headphones for only $60

I don't think UE4000 will isolates that well. UE6000 has noise cancelling, however they are $200.

 

For $100, IEM is the only way to go IMO if u want isolation+sound quality.

As someone mentioned above, i suggest SE215 and HF5 as well.

For maximum isolation, get the Comply P Series Tips.

Haven't compared them to the UEs but I love my Aurvana X-Fi phones for flying.  They compare very favorably with BOSE offerings.
