Need help buying <£100 over-ears suitable for metal and electronic

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, I'm new here and I'm looking for a replacement pair of over-ear headphones as my Philips Uptown's cable broke for the third time, which I cannot repair without breaking the cups -.-

 

=> I listen to mostly metal and electronic music (think periphery, august burns red, gorillaz and the prodigy) so they'd need to be able to cope with fast music and do well with multiple genres.

=> I'd also prefer them to be closed as I do travel with family often and I'd like to be able to use them in the car or later at night without disturbing people.

 

I don't really know what to go for and I've been swamped with headphones in my price range of <£100.

 

I've heard lots of good things about the Creative Aurvana Live and the ATH-M50s, with the SR-80i seeming to be good for what I want but apparently incredibly open. Then there's the Koss PRODJ100, the Shure SRH440 and AKG K550 too, and it's quickly becoming hard to choose xD

 

If anyone has help I'd really appreciate it

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

You should consider Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80)

 

Best Luck!

I can't find anything on them at all, what do they sound like?

The HSR-1000 sound good, if Sony put their name on them they would easily sell for well over $100.

What would you say they compare to?

I have a pair of ATH m50's.

I listen to a wide variety of music and a lot of rock, metal and post and shoegaze.

They are an all round great performer and music sounds great in my opinion. You do however notice a good difference with different sources.

An amp is not needed but does increase the sound quality by a good amount. When I switch them into my phone it feels like I lost a lot of punch. But they still sound awesome.

Detail is amazing, crisp and clear. Music become a lot more enjoyable after I got those. Hearing tunes which used to be non existent.

I guess the HSR-1000s are roughly like a cross between the ATH-M50s and Beyer DT770s.
