My friend wants some Beats, what should he get instead?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My friend wants to get some Beats mixr headphones and there is probably better ones out there for that price. I'm not sure which ones to recommend him so I hope you guys can help me out. He wants closed ones for public use they will be un-amped with his phone. His budget is $250.

DT 770 32 Ohm, K 550 and momentum (available in 2 versions, on ear and over ear)

Surprisingly, I would suggest the new over ear from SOL Republic. I was bored and tried them today. I believe theyre called the Master Tracks?

 

Usually my recommendation for fashion friendly headphone is the m80, but I think my new recommendation is actually the Master Tracks. Not as good of a sound stage but overall clarity is quite good and highs are a bit better than the m80 and at around the same price.

 

Also bass is not stupidly bassy :)

 

Honestly I would just stay away the on ear momentums... bleck...

 

akg k550 are honestly not all that portable, though they do sound nice.

 

I could also add in Sony MDR-1R, which is still my recommendation if comfort is a big deal.

Or one of the other V-Moda's.

Maybe Ultimate Ears 6000

I listened to the Monster Insipration recently, it wasn't bad, definitely better than the Beats I've heard

ehh... i would stay away from the LP1 and LP2 now. The revised beats line up is actually a bit better than them IMO. Yes.. it feels weird to say it.

 

M100 is still a go though and definitely ahead of the beats studios. I heard theyre on sale right now too ;)
