Switching from In-ear to Over-ear, need advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys !

 

So I had the Sennheiser CX300 II and absolutely loved it. The Bass was really good for the buck. The deal is however, my girlfriend decided to take them for herself and now I need to buy something. 


I'm a poor college student so my budget is around 100$ and this time I wanted to try over-ear and not go buy CX 300IIs again. I use it everyday in college and in the train so I need it to be closed or at least have a good isolation status.

 

I looked into the forum and everyone seemed to hate 429s and 4xx series by Sennheiser. I tried AKGs on from a friend ( He has these ) and they didn't fit my taste that well, so now I'm confused.

 

So wants are :

 

- Enhanced Bass, Not mixing mids and lows together.

- Good Quality

- Should be closed so I can use it outside

 

 

Not Wants are:

- Open, studio sets which will bother everyone around me

- Super fragile ones which will break in a year or so.

 

 

 

So the 429 by Sennheiser is now 60$ , 419 is 40$ , CX 300II is 30$ , 439 85 bucks.

 

So Can anyone give me advice on what to buy? I'm open to any suggestions, just please consider the budget. I feel guilty even spending the 100$ lol, but it's gonna be the first Christmas gift I bought for myself in 3 years.

 

Thanks everyone and have an amazing Christmas !

Hi,

 

You should consider Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80), Takstar HD5500 and Takstar HD6000.

 

Here you can read and ask about them:
