Newby saying hi and looking for some recommendations

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

Ex-beats fan (yes i know...) here. I was a long time owner of the beats studio because the punchy bass it has. I recently purchased a pair of Beats executive and I have to say I was not impressed at all. 

 

My  friend opened my eyes by making me try his Momentum that he bought at a much cheaper price and I have to say those were the best sounding headphones I've ever put on. So now, I am officially DONE with beats.

I also had the chance to demo a pair of m-100s by v-moda. Although I liked both the Momentum and the M-100s, the lack of noise cancelling feature hold me back from getting a pair.

 

My friend told me about this forum and I sincerely hope that you guys can help me find the perfect headphones.

 

Here's what I'm looking for:

 

- Active noise cancelling

- decent bass

- clear and crisp sound. I like it when I can hear all the instruments.

- I'm not too concerned about the look but it does not hurt to have a bit :P

 

I have a budget of around 300$

 

 

 

 

Thanks in advance guys!

just saw that amazon.ca has a sale for the m100s...very tempting but I'm still unsure because I'm always in loud areas such as the subway, bus and in school...active noise cancellation would come in very handy.

Hi! I think the Logitech UE 6000 may suit you. I don't own an UE 6000 myself, but had spend a few hours with them. Perfect noise-cancelling around 200$ in my opinion

Here is an alternative besides getting an ANC headphone: get the Sony F807 DAP and use it's build-in ANC feature.  That way you get to use whatever headphones with it an still get ANC.

I don't like that DAP very much... Still a good suggestion.

Very interesting alternative. However, a nice pair of headphones + the walkman is out of my budget and I really dont feel like carrying my phone, the walkman and the headphoens with me. Thanks though!

Yeah, the truth is that there are very few ANC headphones with decent SQ, and the Bose QE15 being the leader but still can't compare the M-100 or Momentum.  You maybe better off with PNC and a pair of good IEM instead.

You won't get the quality of the M-100s with your budget if you get ANC. So you either have to compromise on sound quality or forgo the noise cancellation.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm seriously considering the m-100s now as they are on sale for only 190$ on amazon.ca

DO IT!!!  And head over to the M-100 trend to spread the news.

Can't be better with that price. But you should also dig-up a little bit into IEMs, cuz I'd go for IEMs if I had 300$ or less
