Isolation , Soundstage , Bass, closed and Under 100$

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

SO I recently bought a cooling pad for my gaming laptop. the problem is that it makes a very loud noise at highest fan speed therefore I decided to buy a new headphone that would isolate well.

 

I already have a closed headphone: A700x , while it has an amazing soundstage, it lacks bass...

 

please recommend headphones that meet the criteria.

 

thank you

While already an over recommended headphone, the Audio Technia M50's fit exactly what you want. They're closed headphones with an emphasis on the bass. I'm not sure about the soundstage, as I've never owned them, but many people enjoy them. With the release of the M50x, you'll probably be able to get these fairly easily for around $100 new, otherwise used for less than that.

M50 doesn't have a wide soundstage and doesn't fair well in competitive fps gaming according to many reviews....

 

 

any other suggestions ?

Well you're looking for a very specific set of cans and your budget isn't too large. You could try finding a used pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 pros, but it'd likely cost you a little over $100. Soundstage and closed headphones, especially under $100, don't usually go together well.

I already own the dt990 32 ohm. and dt770 is closed i know but isnt as good as dt990 soundstage wise.....

 

I should look into it as well, I am currently looking at Samson SR950 and Brainwavz HM5 ....
