Best Headphones Under 200?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hello.
I am wanting a great pair of over the ear headphones specifically for music but I will use for gaming/movies. Some noise isolation would be awesome. Thing is I'd like to not spend more than 200 (I'm only 17 with no job lol). Thanks!

Heya,

 

I'd be looking at:

 

Logitech UE 6000

Beyer DT770 LE 32ohm

AKG K167

AudioTechnica A900X

Ultrasone PRO 750

Brainwavz HM5

Nuforce HP 800

 

Very best,

If you don't mind modding a pair of headphones Fostex t50rp. You can buy them and mod them for around $150 depending on the mod.

Mad dogs + alpha pads. They go a bit over budget though

You don't have to get mad dogs or paradox or thunderpants for them to sound good.  Even though those three are down to a science.  They sound good even if you do it yourself.

Don't get the Mad Dogs. You couldn't run them without an amp. Now with one.. Thats another story.

If you are willing to do some mods the T50rp is a great choice. I spent under $150 for a pair of T50rp plus all the materials to do the mods. Now my T50 is a beast of a headphone that can compete and beat other high end headphones in the $300 - $ 400 range. 

 

If u want to check out my T50 take a look at this link.

If you want more info on the T50 and other planar magnetic headphones like it check out this link.

If you don't want to do any mods I would suggest a pair of  Fischer Audio FA -003 / Brainwavz HM5. These Headphones are amazing and cheap, but they may be hard to find.

I agree, depending on how you mod them they can compete with the best.  Now modding them though creates a very balanced phone, so it isn't the "funnest" per say but they sound absolutely phenomenal.  Here is a link of every single mod you could ever think of for these.  http://www.head-fi.org/a/fostex-t50rp-modification-summary-links-wiki I personally suggest the BMF transpore mod. It is one of the easier ones to do and also you need the least amount of materials to do it.

This is false.

 

They are made to run without an amplifier. They're efficient.

 

They're improved and ideal with an amplifier. But they are too efficient for even high powered amps.

 

Very best,

I talked to Dan at the meet, he commented that the Mad Dogs get to just below a moderate listening level with an iPod/iPad.
