Looking for new Over-ear Headphones

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello guys,

I'm newbie in this and looking for my first quality headphones.

I will use them on pc only so I dont care how it looks.

What matters to me is the quality and comfort.

My budget is 100$+- (cannot buy from Ebay), I live in Israel so the prices here are quite expensive, example the SRH440 costs 120 dollars.

 

My music genre : metal, rock (Metallica, A7X, Dreamevil, Disturbed, Gunz n roses etc..), maybe hop sometimes.

 

What I thought about:
shure 440

ultrasone hfi 450

sennheiser hd429

sennheiser hd 215

 

Thank you and sorry for bad English :tongue_smile:.

Can you just give me a specific one? 

I read this thread but could not find any good headphones for my budget.

Heard the HD 429/439 once. Pretty good if you can get them for $50-60. The 439 is bassier, but still controlled. I really, really suggest you check out the competition at a headphone store. If you decide to go with the '429,' do note that the cable is not detachable and is a whopping 10ft long, though the '429s,' a mobile friendly version, the cable is shorter. Also check out the brand Superlux, specifically my HD681 EVOs. Cheers! smily_headphones1.gif

Thank you.
The hd439 too expensive here, about 140$.
And I heard that shure shr440 will do better than hd429 (same price btw).

I'm not sure if you can find this in israel but there is the donscorpio dolphin. According to the reviews its pretty balanced but aggressive on all frequency ranges which is good for rock and metal.
I haven't heard these so you'll have to go to the asian headphone thread for more info.
