Looking for a Friend

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, fellow Head-Fiers.

 

I recently met up with one of my friends from when I was in high school, and he incidentally mentioned that he was looking for new headphones.  He's using standard Apple earbuds now, and while he was originally planning to get a pair of Beats, I didn't have to say much to convince him otherwise (another fellow man saved!).

 

When I asked, he said he was working on a budget of $60 - $100, and I'm sure that we've got wiggle room of about $30 - $50 dollars.  This is without an amp and/or DAC, though, as it would be too cumbersome for him to take on the train and such.  Additionally, he's looking for something bass-heavy, since he listens to electronic, hip-hop, and club a lot (I suspect sub-bass is a good thing), and he says he was looking for something small.  However, for thoroughness, I'd like to see options within IEMs, on-ears, and over-ears.

 

I would give him a recommendation, except that my knowledge better fits the $250 - $600 price range, and I didn't plan to ever buy lower.  Therefore, if I could get some recommendations ASAP, I can send word to him soon.  In advance, thank you for your time, and I hope to get a response soon.

 

Per Laborem ad Astra,

P.S.: I should add that we're both from NY, so acquisition should not likely be a problem.

Look into the thread about over performing budget headphones. Try searching.

You should consider the V-Moda crossfade. It's not great for classical and stuff like that, but for bass heavy stuff like hiphop or electronics they are pretty darn good. It's portable, durable and stylish. It's also efficient so you don't need an amp/dac.

Well, I already own myself a pair of V-MODA Crossfade LPs (the original), so I wanted to get an idea of better variety before I come up with something for my friend.
