Help Deciding Circum-aural Headphones under 50 Dollars

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey,
I have been lurking around several forums for a while now.. and I can't decide on which headphones would be best suited for my use.
I have a strong inclination towards the "Superlux hd668B" ,which I am getting for $44 dollars.I have read great things about these cans ,although I am not sure if I should just increase my budget and get something better or should I get these..Also are these really as good as the reviews mention or are there certain aspects that have been overlooked...ex..comfort-wise,durability etc
Any help regarding this would be of great help.
Thanks guys.

I assume that you know that 668B is semi-open.  Therefore it will leak some sound and not isolate well.  It is not an especially easy can to drive and can often be troublesome for portable and low powered devices to drive well or even adequately.

 

Consider going to IEM's or upping your budget to the $70--$90 range.  That will open up options like the Creative Aurvana Live! (although more of an on ear can) and Sony MDR 7506.
