Looking for best cheap headphones for listening to bass guitar

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

the title is self-explanatory. I need a good pair of headphones, on-ear or over-ear , that costs below $100, that allows me to listen to my bass guitar as I play. I borrowed my friend's beats and they were not bad. But I need to buy myself my own pair of headphones. I'm a little flexible on the budget...

 

Any input would be appreciated,

Thanks

Alright so you want a studio monitor headphone. I actually use my shure srh440 for recording and adjusting the tone of an amp simulator I use for doing guitar covers and their bass is pretty dependable and extended enough for your uses. Some people might disagree and call them bass light but in my own personal experience they are some of the most neutral closed back monitors under 100 bucks. Better than the M50.

Hi,

You should consider Takstar Pro 80.

Best Luck!

Well if you want something like beats, you might not like a neutral studio monitor.

Shure srh840
Koss prodj100 with m50 pads (most people choose this over the shure srh 440... Make sure you get genuine ath m50 pads from sweetwater)
Yamaha mt220
Harmon kardon cl
Fun:
Donscorpio dolphin (you can find this at penon audio)
Yamaha pro 300, 400, and 500

The 440 is more neutral with stock pads than the 840 with its stock pads IMO. I A/Bed them multiple times in a store with the same source.
