Need help with purchasing Over-the-Ear, Closed Heaphones with $50-60 budget. (Pretty new to headphones)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'd like to be purchasing a pair of cans soon. I've been bouncing around for about 5 days. I generally like techno music along with class. I also am a gamer. I'd especially like to listen to music in games as well as fps games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive (hearing footsteps is crucial). I've seen JVC Harx700/900 as viable options as well as Sennheiser 201 or 202 (can't remember). I've heard ATH-M30's were worth the buy as well. I'm not here for studio and monitor headpones.Seen Panasonic RP-HTF600-S being thrown out there. I know some don't recommend closed headphones for around 50 dollars. I'm aware of that, but headphones is not the most important peripheral for me. I can't decide on any headphones at the moment and would like a recommendation asap. I'd prefer closed headphones, but anything with minimal sound leakage would be best. Also don't plan on amp.

Please let me know if I'm missing any information that it's needed.

Since it's not important, you might as well save your money:

Since you play CS, I would really recommend the 8323s like billybob suggests. I own a pair and they're fantastic and they have sound stage (lets you hear the footsteps like they're around you). The only con about the 8323s is that they aren't the most comfortable, but you can just mod them and put in some ear cushions. Cheers and happy hunting.

I've heard more good than bad on 8323s. I'm still wary of buying them though. I do love to listen to music as mentioned above.

(techno and classic) What is your opinion on that side of the headphone?

OK, now that we've established you really *do* care about the headphones, I'll up my recommendation to the Sennheiser HD429.

Haha yeah I thought 5 days research was enough. I considered my other peripherals more important, but I can easily admit I wasn't sure about my thoughts on it. I've been thinking of getting SennsHeiser HD439's that are refurbed. Would this be a good choice? http://www.vminnovations.com/Product_50177/Sennheiser-HD-439-Around-The-Ear-Portable-Headphones-Refurbished-.html?rd=gpf_50177&adtype=pla&gclid=CJeeuK6SmLwCFQsSMwodmFAA7A  Thanks again for the help.

Sorry for late reply, I can't post links atm. Should I get Sennsheiser HD 439's? I found a refurbished version. Thanks again.

I would imagine they are quite similar - but I really don't know. I would probably go for the refurbished one - as long it is coming from a good vendor.
