My CAL! have just died. Recommendations for similar or better?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

My trusty old CAL! have finally kicked the bucket (cup snapped off and wires broke internally) and I am left headphone-less.

 

I'm looking for something similar or better. Preferably closed cup, preferably over-ear. I have a budget of about $100, maybe more depending on the headphones.

 

Any suggestions would be great.

 

Thanks!

Another Creative Aurvana Live! if you're willing to accept the fact that it might die. Otherwise, Philips CitiScape Uptown or Denon DN-HP700. Sony MDR-ZX700 might work. Even the Creative Aurvana Live! 2 might work, but your mileage may vary whether or not it's actually an improvement over the original (which used the drivers of a now-discontinued Denon headphone).

UE 6000 is something to consider. Accidentally Extraordinary 51st Studio is fun as well, although probably not the best bet, but does have a removable cable.

Another to look into is the Donscorpio Dolphin. I prefer it to my UE6000 (I find the UE6000 a little bit too warm sonically).
