Recommendations for Headphones under $200

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am looking to buy some new headphones. I love the Bowers and Wilkins p5; however, I don't want to spend over $200 dollars. I thought about the klipsch s4i ii but I need something more durable as the reviews often state durability issues. So I don't care if they are in ear, over ear, or on ear they just should meet these criteria.

1. Needs to be decently durable

2. Low profile design if they are over-ear or on-ear headphones. (Why I like the p5's so much)

3. Should have good noise isolation or cancellation (I will be using them to study in somewhat noisey areas).

 

They don't have to be super good sound quality, I am willing to compromise on that as I am not a huge audiophile. I might just end up waiting and go for the p5's but I would like to hear if there are some good alternatives out there that I don't know about.

Something like the Audio Technica ATH-M50s would suit you nicely, not very low profile though... Something like the Shure SE215 also are VERY Durable and isolate very nicely.

AKG K545 was said to be better than the P5/P7 at $200 at razerdogaudio. I personally think the P5/P7 are overpriced & would choose the Sennheiser Momentums On-Ears if I was getting a portable/closed $300 pair of headphones - they have a very slick slim profile & better sound imo.
