Hey members of HeadFi, I need some help with choosing headphones.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a moderate understanding of headphones and such but I need help choosing from the headphones that I will list. I have done extensive research on all of the headphones but have trouble choosing one to buy. My budget is up to about $150 at most. Please help out. Thanks

First things first...

 

- is it for portable use, home use or both?

- what kind of system will drive these headphones? Do you have an amp?

- do you need sound isolation (this will determine if you need open or closed headphones)?

- do you prefer bass heavy headphones or a flat response (or something else maybe)?

It's for both home and outside.

I have an Iphone 4S with no amp.

Doesn't really matter to me too much.

It shouldn't be a completely bass heavy headphone because that's the problem with Beats. It can either be flat or customized.

I really do like the Skullcandy Aviators and probably the one of the few skullcandy headphones that I do like ( they make a ton of horrible ones). These are very light weight and isolate fairly well ...


On a side note if you are using them outside you probably want a closed headphone and isolation is also a plus so you don't have to kick the volume up outside as well smily_headphones1.gif
