Headphones under $200

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello Head-Fi’ers,

I have been looking for new headphones lately. I do not know very much about headphones, so I need help. My budget is 200$ (some more is possible, if it is really worth it).  The genres I listen to are mainly hiphop, but I listen to a wide variety of other genres too. I have searched the internet and Head-Fi for good options for me. I think the following headphones could be good for me, but which one should I choose? And should I get an amp with them?

- Beyerdynamic DT 770 80 Ohm

- Beyerdynamic Custom one pro

- Sennheiser HD-380

- Shure SRH840

- Monster DNA pro over-ear

- Alpha Design Labs ADL-H118 (by Furutech)

- Akg k550

- Crossfade m-100

- Sony MDR-1r

NAD VISO HP50              

- Akg k701

- Audio-technica: ATH-ESW9A,

- Audio-technica a900x


thanks in advance for the help!

Beyerdynamic cop will be the best for you, as it is great for hip hop, but can easily handle other genres and will need no amp

Thanks for your advice! I'm trying to get them to listen to them for a while. Also, I forgot to mention a pair of headphones: audio-technica ATH-M50(x). Might they be a better option or do you still recommend the COPs?

I don't think the m50 will give you the bass (I think) you want (at least I always like a somewhat bassy headphone for hip hop)

I think I will go for the COPs then, but I have to listen to them first of course. Made my local music-store order them for me to listen :)

Thanks for your help!
