help buying new headphones!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

hi everyone, I am looking for a new set of headphones around 100$ (the lower the price the better).

I hear all kind of music (except rock): mostly Hip-Hop but also Trap,House,Electro...

the design is important to me, so i want headphones that looks like - Dr. Dre Beats or Sol Republic Tracks HD and also not too big.

 

i want to buy Sol Republic Tracks HD (i liked them very much - they have amazing sound) and i need to know if you can advice me better one in the same price range.

 

thanks in advance!!

I would recommend Koss Pro DJ 100s (TBSE for detatchable cable) They are much sturdier and look rather nice IMO. They also have a much more balanced sound, while still being able to handle bass.

Well, i think most of us give advice based on sound quality, not looks. 

 

I think you are sold on the Tracks HD. tongue.gif

Sorry if i seem a little Blunt, but if you care more about looks than sound, i think you're in the wrong place, of some might humour you, but i sure won't..

Check out the noontech zoros, around $90. These sound a lot better than they look

 

Also the JVC HA S500s, which look very nice and perform well above their price range

I did some search and found those headphones with good look.
now i need help to choose the best....i need good value for money, bass is important but also good mids and highs....noise isolating is not important.
most of the headphones are around 100$ but there are some that cost more (i will only buy them if they worth it).

Sennheiser HD239
