Headphones at a $100 price range

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Hello there,

I've been posting for quite a while now and now I think I can give a better picture of what I'm looking for.

I was going to buy a headset but I decided to go for a better headphones and a seperate Speedlink mic around 15EUR.

 

Some factors which are important:

 

-Price range: Around $100, if It's really worth it $120. Preferably lower than $100

-Durability: I'm looking for some durable cans as I have many broken headphones because of poor cabling.

-Preferably a detachable cable

-No sound leakage or very little.

-Comfortable as I will be listening to music and gaming for long-ish hours.

-I am not using an AMP although I have DOLBY HOME THEATER built-in to my laptop

 

My main priority is music:

  • Some bands I enjoy listening to : Pantera, Lamb of God, Megadeth, Children of Bodom, Insomnium, Kreator, Mercenary.
  • Softer bands I listen to: Pink Floyd and Buckethead. Also some solo albums by Roger Waters and David Gilmour.
  • Some DJ Artists I enjoy listening to: Armin Van Buuren, Tenishia, Dash Berlin, Andrew Rayel, Omnia, ATB, Paul van Dyk and much more even some Chillstep artists like Blackmill
  • Trance music, Metal music, Acoustic and Rock

 

I don't like a completely studio headphones, I want the music to be enhanced while still being realisitic. Thats why I think I prefer DJ Heaphones. Bass just a thumb is enough, I am not a bass head at all but It's nice to have a thump.

 

That rounds it up, Thanks in advance! smily_headphones1.gif

Try AKG-GHS1. The bass here is amazing for games like Battlefield 3.

Music is my main priority but I am looking for something that has bass (the perfect amount, not too much) while keeping good soundstage for a surround-ish sound.

The bass needed to be just a little better on the PRO5V. I'm not sure if you can find some reviews and check its audio description (mids etc, bass etc)

KRK KNS-8400.  I believe they fulfill all your criteria:  durable, detachable cable, comfortable. low sound leakage.  Can be found for $120.

YESH they sound pretty good with all these genre of music. Keep in mind, one who is good at everything, master nothing. Same theory goes to headphone!
