Good On-Ear Headphones under 100 dollars

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

so these are my necessities:

(in ranking 1 to 3. 1 is the highest 3 is the lowest)

 

1. a bit bass heavy but with warm+sweet and good overall soundquality

2. good-looking headphones (because  im gonna use this outdoors on my way to school)

3. good isolation

 

 

i listen to all kinds of music but i prefer a bass heavy with a great speed and impact. i also like a good soundstage. i currently own a koss portapro and i like the bass quality of it though i think it lacks some soundstage and clarity. please stay under the 100 dollar price range. i also like the retro look of panasonic rp-htx7, skullcandy aviator, sennheiser momentum, fischer audio FA-004 Black V2 so i will appreciate it if your recommendations are retro-styled headphones.

 

also...

i will be buying in this shop:

https://www.facebook.com/eggheadph

 

please take a look at them because they are the only headphone shop that have the good brands. its hard to find other brands in my country. i from the Philippines by the way. 

 

so please help me!!!

I guess used pair of headphones is definitely out of the question. Crossfade LP is not excatly the worse headphone I have ever heard but the mids really get drowned and the highs are... Piercing. Bass are clearly the start of the show it's something like Beats but with better build with slightly better SQ.

Other than that, you can look into Sennheiser HD439! The bass are not as strong as the av-Modas but still present and lively

oh those are bulky...

i want headphones that are very good looking like the v-moda crossfades or the sennheiser momentums.

 

no offense with  your quote :)

"Headphone...when worn, can't be seen by your eyes! Don't get bothered by the design, judge it by how it sound!"

My signature? Owh~ haha I used to judge headphones by the look and soon after a very short months, I learn that headphones can't be seen my our own eyes when worn so who cares but that's just to people like me. I can understand why people prefer fancy headphone

Other than that, hmm...

The AIAIAI Tracks?

The Noontec Zoro is a good choice. The isolation could be better though.

yeah.... the Tracks are amazing but lacks isolation. i have the koss portapro though, so i think i dont need the tracks.

 
how are the V-moda crossfade LP ? i've heard that those are bass heavy and the mids and highs are a bit recessed?... will it be a good travelling headphones? (i mean good isolation in a bus.) will my phone equalizer make it somewhat warmish tone?

Isolations are pretty good to my memory that EQ won't help much...
