Need some help choosing my first decent cans

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. My current heaphones are knock offs of Sony MDR V6, so I was looking into something decent. My budget is limited, and my choices are as well, because I live in Argentina, so many good cans might not be available, and buying outside the country is a nightmare (products stolen, having to pay huge fees to get it in, etc).

 

So all I can do is browse local sites and compare prices there (in pesos). The main site is this: http://www.mercadolibre.com.ar/

 

Since I don't have much to go on in terms of experience, I browsed this and searched for all those cans in the site I just mentioned. These were the ones I found:

 

$185 http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-485383585-koss-auriculares-ur55-studio-_JM

$395 http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-491354019-auriculares-koss-portapro-_JM

$425 http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-484864058-auriculares-phillips-oneil-the-stretch-red-sho956010-_JM Do these actually sound good? They seem gimmicky

$477 http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-487091477-auricular-cerrado-para-moviles-beyerdynamic-dt-235-_JM

$477 http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-484996413-auricular-beyerdynamic-dtx-300-_JM

$888 http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ar/MLA-485386840-koss-pro-dj-100-auriculares-estereo-profesional-dj-_JM

 

Those are the ones I could find that fit within my budget (around $900 tops). Just for reference, the Sennheiser HD25-1 II cost over AR$2000 and the HD202 are around $300-400.

 

I mostly listen to classical music, prog rock, and jazz (and Dawn of Midi, which I can't put into a genre).

welcome to Head-fi and sorry about your wallet!! The porta pros are highly recommended for that price range.I have never personally listened to them though.
