100 bucks budged headphones (over ear)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,

I'm new here , so if i'm posting in wrong section ,just inform me then.

My DAC is Fiio e17 which i bought few days ago. I also have Sony MBR V300 head$hit atm.

Normally i'm listening mostly electronic music ,but i often like to listen Rammstein and classical music.

What do i like... I like when sound is "reflected"( like mirrored reality lol ) and detailed. Now you can think that i'm creating manifestation of hypocrisy because ... You know..."real" while listening samples based music. I also like when i can hear bass,but not too much i don't want to collect parts of my brain from the floor :) .

I aware that in this "small budged" it will be hard to find something , but after researching alot of webpages i found:

SUPERLUX HD681 ,668B, HD330

TAKSTAR HD2050

TAKSTAR 80 PRO

TAKSTAR TS671 <- but these are hard to find here in England

DENON AH D1100

 

My previous headphones were CAL! which were recently used with ****ty integrated sound card on pc. I still have them ,but they are without wire ,because my cat has been hungry and ate it...

Recabling seem to be unprofitable at the moment because 1 meter of Canare L6E costs 1.5 pound per meter , including price of splitter and Neutrik plug and of course payment for work. It obviously will exceed 15 pounds...

I kindly asking you to lend me some advice.

Regards Daniel.

A lot of people in the asian headphone thread like the donscorpio dolphin found on penon audio. There is also a little mod that improves soundstage. You just take off the earpads and then take off the material that is covering the drivers
Other cans:
Harmon kardon cl (these have dropped from $200 to $80 in the US not sure about england)
Koss prodj100 with ath m50 pads (be sure to get genuine ath m50 pads)
Martin logan mikros (these have dropped from $300 to $100 in the US but this can be bass light for some)

The audiotechnica ath m50 would be a good all rounder. It has a bit of a bass boost.

What about grado 60i ?

I also heard they are bad with electro music (when standard pads are used). 

L-cunshion here costs 42$ itself lol.

M50= ~200$ here ,also as Harmon kardon cl

I can't find Kardons on amazon ,just international shipment from different countries.

Koss prodj100 = 80 bucks :E

Theres also the yamaha hph 200. There are people who say it sounds better than the sr 60, sr80, and sr225. I dont have personal experience with it but it seems extremely good.
