Having trouble deciding on a headphone..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello Head-Fi.

I recently posted a thread looking for some portables, and I got some recommendations, but I still can't decide.

I want something that I can easily just plug into my iPhone. No amp.

I currently have a Philips Downtown, but I find it to be far too mid centric.

I listen to a lot of electronic, jazz, and rock. I prefer a neutral tone but with emphasized bass.

I was recommended the JVC HA-S500. It looks good, but I was hoping for something that was a bit larger in terms of cup size, like an over ear. I still might get it though.

Budget is anything under $200 at max, but I would prefer to spend more around $50.

I also got a recommendation for the HD429

Any other suggestions?

If yon increase that budget, try the V-Moda's M-100.

 

But with that, since your looking for bass, try the Pioneer STEEZ 808 - http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Portable/Headphones/808+SE-MJ751I

 

And around the $200 range, try checking out the Marshall Monitors.

Why not Try the Beats Mixer. Very Good SQ with no noticeable Distortion even when up high. And if the Bass is to heavy. Understate it by tweaking Your Equiliser.

1. Out of price range
2. Not worth asking price
3. Beats logo
