Budget "open" can recommendations

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Which open cans do you guys consider the best under $60? They will be used mostly for movies, so I want decent bass. Also need to be comfortable, with lots of ear space and depth. I'm thinking of:

 

1) Pioneer SE-A1000

 

2) Panasonic HTF-890

 

Any others? Thanks.

Anyone? Am I right that the Pioneer are the better of the 2? Thanks.

Takstar HI2050 - as with most open headphones you don't get a lot of bass, but it's an excellent, fairly neutral open HP for $30-40 and very comfortable to boot.

Thanks. It's $67 at Amazon, NOT $40. Have you heard either of the 2 I listed?

I briefly listened the Panasonic 890, but they are not of my liking. Anemic bass with piercing highs. 

 

Are you open to other options?

You can get it for less at Taobao or Aliexpress.

Yes I am. I already ruled out the Panasonic HTF600(cups too shallow) and the Superlux 681EVO(creaking headband), JVC RX700 and RX900. To give you some idea, I love my Koss KSC75.

What about the Samson SR850?

I'd prefer an open can, and that's semi-open, correct? Is there much difference between open and semi-open? DO you own the SR850?

My cousin who is into games and such things have a pair. Soundstage it's very spacious and it doesn't lack bass. 

 

Semi-open are partially closed headphones. They still leak a good amount of sound.
