Would love some recommendations finding new headphones in my budget

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I don't have a lot of money to spare on electronics and other luxuries and my old pair of superlux hd 681s have worn out over the years and I'm looking to buy a new pair of headphones. My budget is pushing it at about 80 dollars tops. I'd mostly be using them on my computer and around the apartment, so portability isn't a big deal to me. I listen to a lot of different genres, watch movies and shows, and play games on headphones most of the time, so I guess I'd like something that has a good all around clarity and accuracy. I definitely want good soundstage, so something that excels at that for the price would be great. Thanks in advance for anyone that takes the time to chime in with suggestions.

Under $80:

Superlux 681 EVO
Creative Aurvana Live!
UE6000
Takstar Pro 80
NVX XPT100
HD 439
Sony ZX701

All outstanding values IMO

People can laugh but I think the genuine apple earpods are amazing value at $29

They are actually not bad. I was quite surprised.

Ya earpods are good, very good for $30 actually. But they're not touching the full size headphones mentioned, not a fair comparison obviously but still

Kicker Flow for 14 dollars on amazon right now. On the low end. But are phenomenal sounding for that low price. On the other end. The Klipsch image line is pretty good. Both I have had experience with.

Takstar (closed or open depending on your needs)

It's a bargain if you're a basshead. It's bloated bass makes me think they where trying to compete with Beats in terms of who the bass king.

I had ibeats for awhile. Sadly, the Kicker FLOW's out performed them at a fraction of the price. The Klipsch is also a little bass heavy. But both still have more refinement over the iBeats which is seemingly obsurd. Both sealed better too. I wouldn't go with the ear pods. I have some. They are an improvement over the last gen phones. But they are annoyingly uncomfortable in my opinion.

Looking at the recommendations and what people have said about them, I was mulling between Takstar pro80 and the 681 EVO, and decided to just get the 681 evo. I was pretty happy with my regular 681s and I don't really need closed headphones, I'd rather have the better stage.Thanks for the recommendations everyone.
