Seeking comfortable, good sounding headphones in $100-200 range

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Alright so as the title says I'm looking for some new headphones in the $100-200 range, I want excellent sound quality as well as comfort, I mainly listen to electronic music, any suggestions are highly appreciated.

I'm currently considering buying the following headphones:

Shure SRH840

V-MODA Crossfade M-80

Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Pro

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

Do you need isolation? Do you prefer powerful bass? Are you going to plug your new headphones into a headphone amplifier?

Isolation would be a plus because I'd be traveling with them a lot, I'd like something with what people call "punchy" bass, I don't like super low boomy bass, and no I do not have an amplifier.

Well then you should look into closed back headphones. HD598 and DT990 are open back, then they don't provide any isolation and leak sound. Open back headphones are only intended for quiet places. DT990 are high impedance headphones and then need a headphone amplifier to work properly.

Based on what you are saying you should strongly consider Shure Srh-840. This are
pretty natural sounding headphones with detailed highs and nice mid bass. They come with extra pads and have detacheable cable.

Best Luck!

v-moda m-80 is great for electronic music, but they're on-ear headphones, which some people can't stand.
