What do you guys think of this conclusion~~~~
NVX XTP100 ($79)
JVC HA-S680 ($69)
Creative Arvana Live! ($60)
Prices based on amazon.com
From all the reviews I've read, and the posts on this thread (thanks everyone btw), I'd consider these the top 3 (for my sound preference) headphones under $100. NVX XTP100 (including all its clones) won the votes here, but the CAL!'s and the JVC's don't fall too far behind.
I can't properly compare all these three, since people won't own all three, (especially the JVC's, being Japan imported). Sadly, not to many of the JVC reviews are available (in english anyway).
I'm going to wait till boxing day/week and compare the value of the three then. I'd like to say I've made up my mind on the NVX XTP100, just not entirely+-
If you are seeking a bass heavy phone then those are good choices for under $80.
Give the Steel Series Siberia a listen, it is $75 and supposed to have good bass as well.
