STUCK BETWEEN LUDACRIS SL49, SONY MDR-ZX600, JVC HA-S4X.

Well basically I am more than stuck between choosing these 3 great headphones. I can't really seem to find which one fits me the best. I have to say that the most important thing for me is the sound. I listen to every kind of music. Mostly rap, pop, club, electronic. So I really want the best sound I can get. Now by that I want a mix of good sound quality, clearness, and a lot of bass! Now I know that the SL49's are far more expensive but I found them 50% off for the season in my country. Basically all of these three have the exact exact same price ( 52 $ ). So price ain't a problem. I don't care about the design, all I care about is the music. I want something to put on relax and feel the music. I am not very experienced when it comes to headphones but I can surely spot out good quality and bad. The best headphones I've tried out have to be the beats, as they are pretty popular around here. They are by far the best quality I have ever gotten out of headphones, so I would love something like those. The SL49's are of course more in-ear and company headphones but I have not heard the best about its quality. As far as I know, from small research, I get that the HA-S4X's have the best bass, the MDR-ZX600 pack good bass and good sound, and the SL49's seem to have the best of all. Comfort is also something I would like to know about. The SL49's seem to be the best ones. I mean there should be a reason apart from the Ludacris signature that they cost 100 $. Now that's what I want to find out. Is it really just the signature or is there some actual music love inside of them?

Hi,

 

If you are looking for good sound quality, you should consider this headphones:

 

Closed:

Gemini HSR-1000 (Same as Takstar Pro 80)

Takstar HD5500 (If you want emphasized bass)

 

Semi-Open/Open

Superlux HD681 EVO

Pioneer Se-A1000

 

All of them provide great sound for the money. Remember that open headphones tend to have better soundstage and separation, while closed headphones tend to have more bass.

 

If I had to strictly decide between the headphones in your list I would pick Sony Mdr-zx600.

 

Best Luck!

You're trolling, right?

No I am not. I didn't say they are the best. Jesus what's wrong with people like you. I said they are by far the best quality ones I personally have listened to. I am not saying they are the best. And you are kidding yourself if you think they are bad quality. They are very fine, well constructed and the music sounds great. But it's way too expensive for what it does. Don't just hate everything you see just because of what you hear.

Beats are terrible headphones for the price they charge, it's like asking $100 for a Justin Bieber CD. But for people who never experienced good headphones, beats will sound great to them.

Go for the SL49 since you want the beats sound, it has beats muddy one note bass and very little mids, you will love them.

Sorry about that, I overreacted, but seriously, I would recommend going to your local music store and auditioning something before you spend that much money on something (I liked my Grados from the get-go, but I hear others aren't as lucky with their impulse buys). By the way, it was the "popular around here" which got me.

Thanks for being understanding. As suggested by Me x3, I have researched and found that the Gemini HSR-1000's are quite good. They also come at the price I can afford. They are not to be worn outside of course, but I want to know if they are good. Everyone and their mama's are talking about the ATH-M50's and they say that they are hands down the best headphones at the 100 dollar range. Do the Gemini HSR-1000s come anywhere close to them? If so, how good are they?

Best you can do is ask about Gemini HSR-1000 vs ATH-M50 here:

Many head-fiers in that tread own both and could help you.

I haven't really tried any of them except the zx600 (I have them since late 2012) and all I can say about them is that they're REALLY good. I've messed with Senn HD202 and ATH-WS55 and neither compared. They are simply VERY comfy, lightweight, VERY good sounding headphones. Every time I get a chance to try a new set of headphones, very few made me actually focus on the music, and really enjoy it. One of these are the zx600.

 

By the way: I'm not a pro audiophile, so I don't have an mini-amp and other audiophile stuff. I've teste these only on my laptop, iPod, Nokia 520, PC with no professional soundcard, and they sound excellent from the first song you play. No "burn-in" (which is mumbo jumbo in my opinion), just plug&play!
