best on-ear under $100

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Looking for the most detailed/clear on ear preferably open back under $100. If it helps I'll be listening to mainly rock. So far it seems like the Alessandro ms1 is the best option.

My sister uses the Marshall Major and it sound's quite detailed to me for the price, I'm used to listening to the EX1000, W4 & EQ5, the Marshall Major sounds similar to the EX1000 but with less emphasis on bass and is not as sibilant & bright.

I agree. The Alessandro or Grados would be the way I would go for rock.

I think the adequate options are between the MS1 and the SR80's. Depending on the sound you like...Grado is more forward sounding while Alessandro is more neutral.

Would grados be a bad idea if I occasionally listen too metal?

Grados are very good for all kinds of rock. They have excellent transient response, which makes guitar sound great. smily_headphones1.gif

If you end up liking the Grado sound, you will enjoy them for all kinds of rock. That's what people like them for.

Yes, but *ahem* they also work for every sort of treble-based music such as chamber and organ. gs1000.gif

I would recommend Shure 215, clear sound, nice bass, and perfectly go with iphone, only issue is that someone find shure's cable is not very comfortable to wear.

You're right. Sorry. I'd better sign up with GA: Gradoholics Anonymous. :D
