I am a newbie (in the sense that I haven't used a lot of headphones and hence have no idea how they sound) and I need help choosing between:
Sennheiser CX 400 II Precision $61.45
Sennheiser CX 300 II Precision $56.67
SoundMAGIC E10 $45.20
Sony MDRXB90EX/BCIN $62.82
I love Bass. The first earphone I used was Creative EP 630, which I liked as it was both comfortable to listen to and cheap. Apart from these, Apple Earpods (I like these too), and a few Philips cheapos I havent used anything else. I have gone through the forums and found positive opinions on the Sony MDRXB90EX and have inclined towards it. But I have a lot of doubts too.
I) Which of these best suit what I listen to?
I usually hear to a LOT of movie/game soundtracks (apart from watching/playing them), followed by Irish Pop Rock (The Corrs) and a big fan of ThePianoGuys (Of the youtube fame). I find time for a few pop and metal songs in between this.
II) Do the China and Japan versions of Sony MDRXB90EX really have a huge quality difference? Must I stay away from the Made in China version?
III) Any other headphone worth adding to my list (like Klipsch for example*)? I come from India and some brands are not available here.
IV) Below is the retailer link where the cost is INR 3890 -> $62, much lesser than Amazon's $109. Is this fake (as Electronics cost in India is usually much higher than in the US)? Is this a reasonable asking price for this headphone?
Thanks for trying to help me!
* I can get the Klipsch S3, but the S4 is out of my budget.
