Best headphones from the list or < £ 60

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi yall.

Here am I again.Looking for an On Ear portable headphones < £ 60

I was reading the forums these days all day long.Watching youtube tests and Ebay prices.

It's time for me to change my beloved Sony MDR V-150.I know for most of you these are crap but actually I found the sound very flat and all the levels clear and proper.I'm listening mostly Rap,Drum & Base,Dub step,House so they were just fine.

Anyway after I was fascinated by the sound of Seinnheiser HD 202 and AKG M50 I was looking for their equivalent over the net (HD 202 look dummy with 10 m cord and non foldable.M50s on the other hand are big and sound an idea more quiet than my MDR's even from my Fiio E6...great sound though..huh..). So I ended up in front of Superlux 668B and 681. Ordered 681 and was waiting for them with excitement until I tried them...jeeeze the worst sound ever !!! I'll return them in Monday but still need new headphones so I'm reading for 2 days now and my head is a complete mess...there're so many options I can go for...so I made a list and would ask you guys for opinion. I'm looking for well balanced headphones with good deep bass...not enhanced for the cost of the Mid like JVC XX but nice proper low bass. And also can my Ipod Nano 6 + Fiio E6 power up 40 mm drivers at all ? (actually there's no loud limit for me as sometimes I listen to the home stereo on max).

So here's my choices but feel absolutely free to suggest something else.

I have HD 202. While it sounds good, I found to have a strong clamping force, making it uncomfortable. Plus it has a long cord, 3 meters, so its not that portable.


The real gems for me were Beyerdynamics Dtx501p and JVC HA S500, the last one being number 1 in sales in Japan for a variety of electronic stores. They have great sound and very good, deep bass. They also cost only about 30 dollars. Beyerdynamics is a very good portable one, excellent sound plus mobility.

I've decided to go for Pioneer MJ751 but do they worth the double price over MJ721?
