Good headphones for under $120

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for some over ear or on ear headphones $120 or under. I want something decent with reasonable bass but overall well rounded. I listen to a lot of different music but mostly hip hop/rap, rock, electronic and acoustic. I don't want them to be to big or clunky and prefer them not to look too bad. I previously owned a pair of Akg Q460s but unfortunately lost them. I would also preferably like them on Amazon or Ebay.

Thanks

You could try the Creative Aurvana Live.

Or Shure SRH-440

Or, the JVC HA-S500B - if you understand that they will ship from Japan

I have NOT heard any of these 'phones - they just happen to be some of the same ones I was recently researching.

What about the Logitech UE 6000's? I heard they are good and are reasonably priced.

I was thinking about picking up a pair of NVX XPT100s. Or the koss pro dj100s with a dac/amp.

What do you guys think about the Sol Republic Tracks hd? I know they're on ear but I was wondering anyway. Are they too much style over substance?

I have the ue6000 since last year February when is going for 200. I used it almost every week days on passive mode. I'm really happy with the headphone and still using it now. Build quality is great, most importantly is sounds beats most of its competitor at this price point.

If celebrities wear them in public, then I don't want them. If you are looking for on-ear portables, check out AKG - they have a bunch of different models.

Do they feel heavy and clunky on your head? Because I have heard that from other people.

It is a little heavy with 2 triple A batteries. It shouldn't be a big problem. The earcup is really big. It fits really nicely. If you don't use noise-cancelling mode, the headphone can run without batteries. It is light enough that you wont feel any pressure your head. Noise-cancelling mode is simply a bass boost switch.. I prefer using it on passive mode.
