In a need for new headphones for $20-30 in design same as B&W P3...

post #1 of 3

Hi, I'm totally new to this forum, and here I am to say hi and to ask a few questions, I hope you could help me with them :)

 

So, I know this is kinda bad trying to find something similar to B&W P3 as the price is way high from my budget point.

 

I would be mainly using headphones for gaming and listening to rock/metal music...

 

I took some time, here on Head-Fi, on Amazon and other sites to find headphones that are pretty close to B&W P3, as I really like they're comfortable and lightweight, as I have a bigger head and ears I'd like headphones that are on-ear like B&W P3, and this is what I've came with:

 

1. JVC HAS160

2. Sony MDRZX100

3. Havit HV-H358F - Not sure if someone even heard of these, but I like their design, anyone have any information are these any good?  - http://www.havit.hk/pc_product_view.php?pid=2&mid=55&cid=81&id=192

4. Sennheiser HD 219 - a little over my budget, and not sure where can I get them cheap in Europe, any ideas?

5. JVC HA-S650 - or any other in price range of 30$...

6. Pioneer SE-MJ502 or Pioneer SE-MJ522

7. CREATIVE HQ-1450

8. Philips SHL9300

9. JVC HA-S200

 

 

Any other models you could suggest for this small price point with good sound? Also, a feature like microphone (for iPhone) is very welcome too! ;)

 

Can someone tell me the difference between JVC HAS160 and 150? As seen in this post - http://www.head-fi.org/t/433318/shootout-109-portable-headphones-reviewed-munitio-pro40-added-01-24-14 sound of S150 isn't that good as Head-Fi said it is with S160... Are they really that different in sound?

 

I'd like if someone could suggest me which to buy, and with a comment why to buy them. And some sort of comparison, why to buy these and not that would be welcome. ;)

 

Thank you! :)

 

P.S. Sorry for my bad English :D

I am not sure if you are going to find it for $30 around your area, but the panasonic htf600 work really well for the price. Yeah, B&W P3 are not well liked here at head-fi, but they still sound best for leisure electronica listening, even against the legendary hd250 linear II *GASP!*. biggrin.gif

Not sure why wouldn't you like B&W P3...? Yes, they are expensive, but that's B&W, same as you're buying BMW (not a fan of), but this headphones have a good sound, and are really comfortable...

 

So, any other comments? Anyone?
