What is the BEST Budget headphones you can find for less then 60$?
I need it for home use only
I prefer over ear \ on ear
I listen to rock, pop, rap and a bit of dance
I don't think there's a good consensus on which one is absolutely the best. Someone should do the community a favor and make an updated budget comparison thread (maybe there already is one).
AKG K240S, Sony MDR-V6, Creative Aurvana Live! goes on sale at $60 time to time.
You got the chinese Superluxes, the Takstars, Somics, and Monoprice DJ, could also look at HARX900, SE-A1000, DJ100...
Maybe a used Grado SR60/80?
Edit: I thought the Citiscape Uptowns went up in price recently to $80, but refurbs are still selling under $60:
You should consider Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80). If you want a bassy headphone you should consider Takstar HD5500. If you prefer a V-shaped sound signature then you should consider Takstar HD6000.
Pioneer Se-A1000 is a really good headphone at its price point if you are looking for open sound (more speaker-like). But, as most open back headphones they don't provide any isolation and they don't provide a lot of bass.
