Buying headphones from abroad " can't really get to send them back " 40$ Maximum budget - Page 2

post #16 of 39
It's too bad detachable cables are a bit rough to find at this price range. Which reminds me, you might be able to find a HD439 in your range as well.

Hmmmz... what If I don't have an AMP right away ? waste of headphone experience? what's your opinion about the ATH-M30? and the Superlux HD-681 EVO

Koss Porta Pro is kinda upsetting design to me :D I liked the Superlux HD-681 EVO the most but it's a semi-open =\

so no monoprice right

You're right I can sacrifice that if there are more attractive features

On board sound is notorously crappy.  Can't say with certainty, but it is likely that you will not get much volume out of the DJ100.  The DJ100 is a can that punches above its price class--if properly amped.  There is a long thread about it elsewhere on the forum.

 

Haven't heard the other two or read anything yet that would make me want to.

I know a lot of people like the monoprice, to the point where it felt like for awhile every third thread had it as a suggestion, so certainly don't write it off. I just remembered finding it boring.

While a good buy for the money (not much competition at its low, low price point), it's a very colored and unnatural sounding can.

What If I went up to 70$ should I go for the DJ200 or any better can around 70$?

 

I also heard that NVX Audio XPT100 for (80$ now) is the best I can get if I extended my range

The DJ 200 is basically the DJ100 with more features and a better kit. 

 

For at or just above $70--get the UE 6000--or next best the on-ear original CAL! (Creative Aurvana Live!), which is currently $68 from Amazon Prime.

I am sorry if I am being too demanding / asking many questions 

 

what do you think about this? http://www.amazon.com/NVX-Over-Ear-Headphones-ComfortMax-Cushions/dp/B0093PVTPS/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1404201329&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=NVX+Audio+XPT100 

 

against the Creative I think it offers many features

Okay so now I am almost sure I am getting one of the following since the very low budget stuff doesn't seem any promising:

 

Logitech UE6000

Creative Aurvana Live

NVX Audio XPT100

 

votes please

These 3 are cans with very different characteristics.  You need to decide which best fits your needs and intended use(s).

 

If used as a portable or on the go, the UE 6000 is the winner--see:

Yeah I read this full preview and watched the video also .. honestly the logitec is a very nice headset for the money

and also the NVX comes with two replaceable ear cups and two different detachable cables and I am pretty sure they sound good

Anyone got any idea about the NVX Audio XPT100?

They are clones of the Brainwavz HM5 and others.  They are very large.  Technically their sound is not bad and yet they seem to suck the soul out of music.  If they are packaged similar to the HM5, they come with an excellent kit.

They are packaged similar to the HM5 with two replaceable ear cups and two different cables and the quarter inch extension.. with 80$ price tag

while the UE 6000 are around 82$ .. pretty much annoying not knowing what to choose :(

Bottom line: there is no substitute for hearing (all of) them yourself.

 

If you're down to two or three good choices, with specific information on each, then you're way ahead of the game for a buyer who can't put them on his/her head before making a purchase.
