Closed headphones $100 or less

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My friend wants to buy headphones with good isolation but still decent SQ, up to $100. Honestly, I have no idea what's decent in this category and price range so any suggestions would be helpful. I'd like to get multiple options if possible. Thanks!

The MDR 7506 is my favorite.

How about Superlux 662F, it has a nice flat response ideal for studio and it's closed, look at this review:

 

"The more i use the HD-662F the more i like them... these are the best cans i have found for tracking, the natural balance makes it easy to hear detail and the bass and guitar can stand right next to the drummer and track without complaints, i have stopped using (7506, Can't hear the bass) and k240 and HD-669 in the studio and exclusive track with HD662F and for open cans the HD-681... every musician can hear with these cans. would love to have a open version of the HD-662F it is one of the best cans if not the best i have had the privilege of listing too... natural... ( perfect balance... or as close as you can get. )

Well if he is a bass head, go with the V-Moda Crossfade LP's, the best sounding would probably be the Shure SRH-440, the best build probably the Koss Pro DJ-100, there is also the Sony MDR7506

Thank you guys. He's not a basshead, listens to many genres, and is looking for isolation. I think I've got some nice options now.

What about IEMs? Is that an option? If it is, that opens up the possibilities much more. Shure SE215, Westone UM1, etc.
