Looking for some open headphones under/around 100$ - Page 2

post #16 of 19
Hi!

Open leaks sound but sound usually better than closed other than the bass department. For $100, if you are fine with on-ear, the UE4000 sound best at that price range. Even at $150, it is still an excellent headphone. The spaciality of these headphone is its details. Very detailed and I could hear the finest detail of the song.

For open on-ear, I will second Grado SR80i although I never get to try them but it seems to play well with your genres of music.


For over the ear, I will highly suggest the HD439. It's warm sounding overall. Very easy to listen. If not, I will second HD558 or HD598. HD558 are good but for the price, it is better to upgrade to HD598 or go for HD558. Also, sibillance might be a issue on these.

Hope this help!

 I get the 558 for the same price as the 449 since I get a staff discount at a store that sells then 558's. At this point I think It's between the 558's and the AT M50. I don't really care for on ear headphones so that kills a lot of decent valued ones and the 558's seem highly praised.

 

 I guess it comes down to whether I want open or closed in the decision between the M50 and the 558's

Get the 558, man,

OP - Unless you need an excess of bass and the isolation of closed headphones,

I'd go with the 558 over the M50.
