Looking for a not too-pricey replacement for a SL HD681B

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello there.

I got a Superlux HD 681B a year or so ago and now my headband somehow is broken (it just start to torn, sorry, my english is quite bad), my earpads is a mess (i spend in my headphones for about 16-20 hours a day), and now I want something new, fresh and not too high cost.

I'm looking for something about 50-80 dollars (in my country it's about +30 for delivery, and i want to stick in 100-110$).

 

My sound card is just a standard Motherboard one (i'm still looking for a USB-one, because I didn't have a slot in MB for an internal one, so I'm thinking about fiio e10 in some near future), that's why I don't want to go with 150-300$ headphones and want to stick with something bassy. Mostly because HD 681B is not too good at this (i was trying them on Asus Xonar DX too).

 

I have a quite big head and I want to go with something semi-open or close ones, coz I already have good earplugs for my player.

 

Any tips, advice, topic links? I think I read alot but most people just tell others to buy HD 681 EVO ones, and I just dont want to go that way right now, but I want something better, if it exist in my price range.

 

Thank's :)

Have you checked the buying guides--like this one:

yep, I tried that one (and some other sticky guides) - all they say is that superlux is quite better than any other options in my price range :(

The CAL! is excellent, but may not be durable enough for your needs.

Problem is that you are hard pressed to get good sound and durability in your price range.  You should probably look to studio cans from makers like Shure, Sony or KRK.
