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.
