In Ear Headphones Under $215

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I am planning on buying new headphones when I buy a new iPod in a few weeks. I'm wondering what would be the best headphones for the price listed? I typically listen to Rock/Metal and Hip-Hop/Rap.

I would possibly consider over-head headphones but probably not.

You can probably find some westone 3's around that price and they're great for hiphop and metal. They're 195 on amazon.

Yeah unfortunately but keep on the look out sometimes amazon has them cheap. I bought mine for 228 just a little outside your range.

Another problem is I'm in Canada. And amazon.com doesn't ship to Canada and .ca it's like 425.00 :(

Since you're in Canada and want to buy new, the Sony store has the Sony XBA-H1 for $180 or order the Vsonic GR07's from headphonebar (Canadian store). Those would be my 2 recommendations.

 

edit:I just checked the headphonebar website and they don't carry the GR07's anymore.

 

edit#2: Go check inside a sony store if you can. When I went, they were clearing out the XBA-4's for $150. I had them previously but didn't like them. They also have a good return policy.

 

edit#3: The apple store in Canada carries the RHA MA750i for $130. I have the version without the mic and controls and really like them. They do well with the genres of music you listen to.

Thanks a lot! Gonna try and find the RHA without the mic and controls, if I can't find them without I'll probably just buy the XBA-H1's

Wondering if this seller seems legit and if the RHA MA750 without the "i" makes a difference or not. Thanks!

The seller is RHA who makes them so it is legit. From what I have read there is no sound difference between the i and regular version.

I suggest the Vsonic GR07. You can get it here for $130 with free shipping:
