Jvc or sony or skullcandy???

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello guys 

 

After 3 years of heavy use of my Sony MDR-AS20J the left side start to fail, so it is time for a new one , I listen to all kind of music but mostly rock and metal and I found 3 headphones that had the most positive reviews and are in the 25$ range :

1-JVC HAFX101A

2-Sony MDR-EX210B

3-Skullcandy Titan .though I tried the titan in 2010 and didn't like its sound and it stopped working after like 4 months from purchase,I don't know if they made it better these days or not.

Need your opinion guys which one should I get for the good sound and durabilty?

 

thanx

think the JVC should be fine

I know I found the JVC to be a good quality for its price, especially if you like bass in your music.  Amazon has different colors that cost differently if color is at all important to you, or if you're just interested in getting the least expensive version.  As far as durability I'm fairly careful with mine, so I can't say just how durable they are.  I don't have any experience with the other two.  Hope this helps

Monoprice 8323

The 8323 can certainly perform well for its rather cheap price, and the bass won't be as much as the JVC, my only concern with it for me was the comfort.  I don't know if the newer IEM Monoprice made is more comfortable or how much the sound has changed, I think its the 9927.  If memory serves, teh 8323 is $7.11 and the 9927 is $7.57 or so.

Not the IEM (though they are great for the price), the full sized DJ cans that look like kicker headphones

OH!  sorry, its a lil annoying when companies use similar numbers and nothing else for products, gets hard to keep them in order
