Can I get recommendations on a pair of headphones?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi 

I want to buy a new pair of headphones but I can't find any that fit my criteria, help?

Here is what I need:

Nothing over $80

Stylish,not so bulky on my ears

3 button controls and microphone for phone calls (very important!)

 

I've looked at the Audio Technica WS55i but I'm scared about compatibility issues because I have an Android phone (LG G2) and I've seen on forums they don't work with anything other than iPhones. Is that true? Is there another solution? I don't really like the Sl Republic Tracks or the Sony MDR ZX300 because they don't look so good. Alternatives?

The only thing that comes to mind is the Koss Porta pro,they are very low profile, sound good and have the line remote, but you might not like the retro look.

not many people care about the look of headphones on this forum (its all about the sound) so you might not get much help.

 

other headphones that sound good and look good are: Creative Aurvana live, V-Moda LP and the Sennheiser Momentum. 

 

The V-moda and Sennheiser are both out of your price range.

V-Moda: http://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-Crossfade-Over-Ear-Noise-Isolating-Headphone/dp/B003BYRGKY

 

Sennheiser Momentum: http://en-us.sennheiser.com/over-ear-headphone-momentum-stereo

 

Good luck :wink:.

Phillips Citiscape Uptown or Downtown.

Prices vary strong from color to color (about 40€-70€ for Downtown, 60-110€ for Uptown). Uptown is over-ear, Downtown On-Ear.
