First time here, requesting recommendations.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, it's not really my first time here but this is my first thread, thought it would be proper to introduce myself first before anything else. I'm Delon, from Malaysia, and I'm looking for a pair of headphones.

Now, to start off, I am a complete newbie at this whole audio thing, and failed to understand a whole ton of things I've read from reviews here. I am looking for a pair of cans only for casual music listening (on my mobile phone and desktop PC when I'm at home), and nothing else. My other requirements are as follows:

 

1. Budget of less than 200 USD.
2. Over-ear, closed back.
3. Mostly listen to J-pop, hard rock at times, along with some slow songs too.

 

I asked for recommendation with the same criterias above in a local headphones forum, and was recommended the Audio Technica ATH-M50x, Audio Technica ATH-M40x if I was on a tighter budget, and the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros. So I'm basically just looking for more opinions here, thanks in advance, and if there are anything else you might need to know, feel free to go ahead and ask away.

Check out the Wall of Fame lists at Innerfidelity. Each headphone on the list generally links to a larger review:

Also, this buying guide may help you some with headphone terminology, and it provides some recommendations:

If you want to know more about any headphone after that--or ask specific questions--if you google the make and model $ of a headphone along with the term "head-fi," you can usually find lengthy discussion/appreciation threads where many owners of the headphone hang out smily_headphones1.gif

The prices on Tyl's WoF are kind of outdated. You can get a new UE6000 for $80 on Tigerdirect. The K550 can be had for under $150 (Amazon warehouse).
