Looking for a cheap comfy headphone

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, ^title.

 

I recently lost my Sennheise PX-100-ii headphones, and looking for replacements. The sound quality was fine, my main issue with the PX-100 was that my ears felt REALLY hot after a while. I don't know much about headphones, but here are the main points:

 

- I want a headphone as comfortable as possible. No clamping, no super hot ears. I'm also wearing glasses, don't know if it's important or not

- Sound quality is second priority. Of course, better sound is simply better, but being comfy is much more important to me. I use headphones to listen to some rock/pop music, and converse with friends over skype.

- Portability is not an issue, I only want to use it at home

- Price range is strictly 70 bucks

 

Thanks for the help in advance!

Grado SR60i, a head-fi favorite. It is $10 over your $70 budget, but worth it. Or get the SR80i for $99. Super comfy pads.

I'm actually living in Germany, so the prices in the U.S may not be the best measurement for me. I just checked out the sr60i, but they are in the 150 bucks range. Maybe something even cheaper? I know you gotta pay for a good headphone, but I just need it so I can listen to music/friends without bothering people in the neighbouring room. I don't care TOO much about the sound. Any new suggestions?

 

EDIT: anyone has experience with Sennheiser HD201? My main issue is not having hot ears, I don't know what is causing them though
