Best headphone under $200 for the college student. Portable, stylish, noise canceling, etc. What...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am an athlete in college looking for the best headphone for college use. I'm open to any type of headphones (in ear, on ear, over ear). They have to be portable. I will be often shoving them in my backpack which is already full of stuff. I would like to be able to study anywhere without so much noise. So something with good noise canceling or at least decent noise isolating. Minimum leakage would be best because I don't want to annoy anyone in the library. And, of course, some style wouldn't hurt either. For the long bus rides and study sessions, I need them to be pretty comfortable. Lastly, the little remote for apple products would be a plus.

 

I listen to all kinds of music. Country, rap, rock, hip hip, etc. As I said, I am an athlete so I do want a headphone that can really pump me up with music before a game.

 

Price range would be anything below $200.

 

I realize there might not be a headphone with all these qualities but any suggestions would be helpful!

 

Thanks!

UE6000 will fulfill all your needs.

Those are a bit too bulky for me :/ Everything else seemed perfect though

I think IEM's would probably be a good fit. I don't think I would ever recommend noise cancelling headphones to anyone and if you want something that isn't bulky then IEM's are probably the best choice.

 

For the type of music you listed I might recommend the Monster Turbine Gold's, I don't have personal experience with the Gold's only the Coppers but they're said to be a bit more leaning to the bass area.

They're $149.99 for the control talk on amazon. I haven't done to much research on IEM's since I bought mine so there might be something better. Just something to think about.

The UE6000 arent noticeably bulkier than beats studios...

I have the original monster turbines, I'm a high school athlete and they are great at getting me pumped. Tons of bass but not drowned out vocals. In my opinion they do good with all music, though I don't listen to a ton of music other than rap. They handle mumford and sons just fine.

 

I would get the turbine pro golds. Very stylish looking and apparently sound better than the ones I have ($80 on amazon) $150 for the pro golds is an amazing price.
