Question about Budgets

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I know that headphones can get very expensive, but my question is: for you personally, what is the best budget for a set of headphones? What i mean by that is how much do you have to spend to get the best value. i hope this is making sense. for example. I asked a question about expensive iem's earlier this month and in response someone gave me this. It makes sense! but the question i am asking is what price range is best in terms of value? I hope this makes sense!

200-300. You can get for example sennheiser hd600 and hd650 in that range, either used or new if you're lucky, and I think they're about the best deals.

For me, $300-400 is the sweet spot. The puts the hd650, he400 and maddogs within reach.

I'd definately say $200-$400. Thats where all the former flagships are.

In terms of the best value for money: one model lower than the best a company has to offer. Top models always have a big markup.

 

In terms of absolute money, I agree with others. $3-400 is good enough.

Hm. Good point! thanks!

Yeah, the jump from nothing/$10 headphones to the $300-400 range is infinitely more noticeable/drastic/worth your money than the jump from $300-400 to $700-$2000-onward.
