Best comfortable headphones < 30 USD? Tried some recommended but not satisfied.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi Guyz,

I am a college student and i am in need for on-the-ear or over-the-ear headphones < 30USD which are good sounding and very comfortable.As per the suggestions of this forum i have tried

1. JVC HARX700

2. Panasonic HTF 600

3. Koss KSC75.

 

JVC was very very big and not portable at all and its was middling comfortable - so returned it back. HTF600 was very good sounding but the earpad get heated in 10-15 mins and becomes very uncomfortable. KSC75 was very cheap and good sounding but the ear hooks are not so much comfortable. 

 

I have HTF600 and KSC75 with me as of now and planning to return HTF600. Is there any recommended headphones in this price range ? Or should i get PartsExpress headband to use KSC75 ? How comfortable is it ?

​Sony MDR-XD100 is very comfortable , the sound is pretty ragged 

 

The Panasonic is pretty good , if you can scavenge around 18 bucks and get the Brainwavz HM5 pads , your ears will thank you for a long time

Thanks for your response. I thought of getting these:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-Velour-Earcushions-MDR7506-Headphones/dp/B0016MF7W2

 

but 29USD(Headphones) + 22 USD(pads) seems too costly for me. Any suggestions ?

Get the Parts Express headband for your KSC75, they are extremely lightweight and comfortable for me, I have been able to wear them for a few hours without discomfort.

I use mdr-sa3000 pads for my htf600, which are pretty cheap on eBay (~$10-15 shipped), preserve the same warm sound signature, and don't make your ears sweat. You could also try beyer dt770 velour pads ($10 shipped on eBay). However they are a bit larger and fit pretty loosely (but are still usable). Those pads drastically change the sound signature too (the highs get pushed up a lot and the cans sound more neutral as a result, if not bright)
