Over-ear Closed Back for $100

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello again! I've recently been looking at some headphones and uh... had some difficulty deciding which ones to get.

 

 

I'm looking for over the ear headphones with a closed back with a smacking price of $100 or less available in Canada (including online stores).

 

 

 

Things about me

- I listen to mostly rock and metal

- I'm new to buying headphones so I can't be quite sure how I want them to sound but I do like rich sounds. I want to be able to hear everything in a song...

- I'm pretty rough on them so replaceable cables are a nice plus

- They won't leave the house much but I want something that is at least half-decent at isolating noise

- The need to sound nice out of the box as I won't be buying anything to "enhance" it

 

After looking around I was going to settle of a pair of Sennheiser HD 449's but I a few thoughts went through my mind.

- With brand names such as Sennheiser I presume the products they get their fame from are higher-end ones which means I can probably get a better bang for my buck

- There are other similarly priced Sennheisers (HD 419's) but I have no idea what the difference is between any of them

You could get the Sennheiser HD 439 for $40 and free shipping here: http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/109176/vminnovations.com---sennheiser-hd-439-over-ear-headphones

 

I just got them for certain situations where closed would be preferable to open.  They have excellent reviews on this site and elsewhere.  If you want a great value, these have never been lower than $71 new on Amazon (according to Camelcamelcamel).
