Recommendations for over ear headphones under $300

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I am on the market for a set of over ear headphones, hopefully under $300, but i could go up to $350 if I must have them. I am looking for something somewhat neutral or with a slight emphasis on bass. They must be over ear, but open or closed back does not matter, as I will rarely use these portably. I will also not be using an amp. The ones currently at the top of my list are:

V-Moda M100
AKG K550
Phillips Fidelio L2
Logitech UE 9000
Sony MDR-1R
Nad Viso HP50

Any other recommendations or advice on my top 6 isgreatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The B&W P5 or P7 are worth considering.

I have looked into those, but all three supposedly need an amp to sound anywhere near their full potential

Can't stress the M100 enough.

They sure do! When I posted initially I didn't comprehend that you were not going to use an amp, I edited my post real sneaky like, but not fast enough apparently :wink_face:

lol I think I posted that about 30 seconds after your original post. As for the p7/p5, the p7s are a bit out of my budget, and the p5 are on ear

I'm striking out left and right here :atsmile: Since your looking at the L2 what about the Phillips X1? They get a lot of love around here.

Sorry, but I read a direct comparison of the two and it said the l2 did everything the x1 does but better.
