Searching for a 100$ or less headphone.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

My Headset just broke and there I am, searching for a headphone to replace it.

But I'm not here to tell you about my life, so I will directly go with the use that the headphone have to fulfil.

 

「Price max: $100 CA

 

I would like something with a clear sound. I am a big anime, tv show consumer and I like it when I can clearly hear everythings that is happening in the show or anime. Like everybody, I guess :p.

 

I often play MMORPG, RPG games too. I don't often play shooters life Battle field. Well, as a newbie, I don't know if it have an impact on the product that I should get but anyway.

 

About music, in the majority of time I listen to Rock, Epic and sometime to Pop and Dubstep kind of music.

 

A loud and very (to not say over) present bass is not my preoccupation since it is clear and present.

 

About the design of the product: I would like a ''over the ear'' one. It will also be for a In home use only.

 

I prefer closed heaphone, but if you think that I should look specific open's one(s) that you belive worth it, just go on ^_^.

 

I will plug the headphone into my computer. If it work with a tv plug, it would be great, but it is not an necessity matter at all.

 

I think this is it. I'm looking forward to the help of the audiophiles and others that think have a product in mind which could interest me.

Open or closed headphones? does not matter?

What source(s) will you be plugging the headphones into?

I will plug it into my computer and sometime (rarely) in my Pad. If it work with a ''tv plug'' too it would be great, but this is not a priority at all.

I would prefer a headphone that isolate the sound that come from it, so a closed one would be better. Still, I am open to open headphone, in case you think I really need to check it out.

Hello!

 

The only anime movie that I watch is "K" talking about the seven kings named by colors. Pretty cool anime to me XD

 

Anyway, for the genre of music that you listen to, especially electronic music, the best headphone for it under $100 would be HD439 for around the ear and UE4000 for on-ear. 

 

Hope this helps!

Billson :)

Thanks for the reply, it helped me a lot.

 

The Sennheiser 439 sounds really good to me. Still, I did some more researches and I ended up asking myself if the 449 wouldn't be a better option (the price in somewhat the same where I live).

 

I also ended up on these: ATH AD700. I know these are open air, but for 10 more dollars they seemed to be a good option too. However, the reviews always says that they lack -a lot- on bass. I'm not a bass whore, but still I like to hear it with a good precision.

 

At the end, even with the review I can't decide myself u_u'. Any recommendation about these three?

 

Edit:

 

Yeah, ''K'' isn't a bad anime thought the color's pannel is weird to me x). It's kind of... red, blue flashy. Anyway :p.

The AD700s do have a nice sound, as long as you like having almost no bass.

 

Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000) headphones

adding the Asus Xonar DG sound card should improve the audio quality of any headphone you use.

Amazon sometimes sell used ones for $20.

I have a laptop which inner components are hard as hell to replace -size issue-. However about the Takstar Pro 80 and the Gemini HSR-1000 headphones, I can't find reviews or anything really clear about them. I guess they are good cause you suggested them, but I am a little perplex about it.

 

And I have to say that I am sincerly exausted to search for a new pair of headphone. My head is gonna explode! There's too much choices ^^'.

After a moment of reflexion, I think I will try out the sennheiser HD439.

 

Thanks for the help.

The HD449 and HD439 are of the same family, the HD4xx series but they are different! The HD439 have better bass and warmer. In comparison, the HD449 have less bass and a Ted thinner. You are better off HD439 if you will have to choose in between these two.
