Need some advice on my first 'dedicated' in-ear purchase!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So, a while ago I bought the sennheiser HD 598's for my PC for gaming and music and I have to say I CANNOT be more satisfied. These things are AMAZING.

Now I'll be going on a trip on which I'll be sitting in a bus full of other people around my age (16.. X_x) for about 10 hours straight. I'll be tiring myself out the night before so I can get some good day's sleep on the bus while I listen to my soothing Blue Sky Black Death, Prince, Cake, Limp Bizkit and other soundtracks/remixes of soundtracks.  I'd like to come prepared. Right now I have some old Philips SHE9503/10's laying around and quite honestly, they sound like absolute crap. My budget is fairy low however, around €35-40 maximum. (I'm saving for a new gfx card! :D) I've been doing some digging and I've come out on the following earphones:

http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/238218/sennheiser-cx-300-ii-precision-(zwart)/specificaties/ (Sennheiser CX-300-II-Precision Black's)
They seemed good for the price as well as they looked good.
http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/334760/soundmagic-e10-(rood-zwart)/specificaties/ (Soundmagic E10's)
They look very interesting to me and I've read some good things about them. Very hard to come by them though (I live in the Netherlands.)
http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/307176/sennheiser-cx-175-(zwart)/specificaties/ (Sennheiser CX 175 Black's)
These are the first ones that I found. Pretty cheap, don't need the 275's for the microphone and looked decent. 
http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/360107/razer-hammerhead-(groen-zwart)/specificaties/ (Razer Hammerheads)
Probably an unpopular choice but I found these a while ago and wasn't that interested then, but they are potentially pretty nice I suppose. They seemed more closed and sound supressive?Not sure how they compare to the rest price/quality wise though. Comes with a nice case too. 

So as you can see, I like a little bit of pop sometimes, but mostly rock is what I listen to. It has to have a decent bass but I suppose it doesn't have to be overwhelming like some headphones are. 



I'm always open to more suggestions, but keep in mind I don't live in the USA so I might not be able to get some more unknown brands. Thanks in advance!

Try the JVC HAFX1X's. I think you will like them. They sound great with those genre's. I gave you the link to buy them in the US but you will have to find them for yourself in your country.

Brainwavz M4 is perhaps the most versatile under $50, you can get them from MP4Nation
