Looking for portable headphones (40-80 USD)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello head-fi! I currently own a pair of Samson SR850 headphones, but I'm in the market for something a bit more portable. I would prefer to keep the price under $50, but I might be willing to spend a little more If I think it'd be worth it.

Here's a list of features that I'd like to have, in order-

-sounds nice

-small enough to fit in a bag or large pocket

-over-ear (or very comfortable on-ear)

-looks pretty (It's actually a big deal to me, sorry)

-maybe bluetooth? (Unless it's noticeably more lossy than a cable)

-detachable cable (assuming bluetooth sucks as much as I think it does)

 

Thanks in advance!

 

*edit*

alright...so I'm highly considering the JVC HA-S400's any thoughts?

The JVC HAS400 is an excellent headphone and an excellent value. I love mine. For your budget there really isn't anything better, except perhaps if you can get a JVC HAS500 shipped from Japan at a low enough price.

Thanks everyone! I'm definitely gonna go with the JVC HAS400's

I'd be willing to spend more on the 500's or 680's, but to be honest, I think the 400's have the best design.
