What's the best sounding headphone for around 100 dollars? - Page 5

post #61 of 79

With $200 budget, I prefer buy used (in good condition) AKG K701 or like  what I did bought used HD600 for $240.

You will happy and no need upgrade for next 2-3 years....:)

Maybe the soundmagic hp200 or hifiman he300

I second the HiFiMan HE-300. You can get them brand new for $150 and you basically have to go over $300 to get a better sounding headphone. I own them personally and love them dearly.

Without an amp, your choices don't expand all that much with the extra $100.  You can reach the Grado SR 225e, but I'm not so sure you would like its sound signature.  Some have problems with its comfort.

 

You need about $30 to $50 more to reach cans like the Sony MDR-MA900 or HE-400.

...and that $30 to $50 dollars is well worth the investment.

What's your budget and what cans to want it to drive?  Portable or deck top?

I guess portable and I don't know which headphones. That's what I'm trying to decide.

You need to at least tentatively decide on the headphones before picking an amp that may or may not properly power them.

Those sennheisers look pretty tempting but you guys said the yamahas are better. Now my budget has doubled for the headphones. Maybe I'll use the second hundred for an amp.

+1 to this...got my 'Like New' Q701's from Amazon Warehouse for $139 instead of $199...all packaging and materials included. It appears that they've never been used.

The Philips L1 (replaced by the new L2) is available for $100 at a certain group buy website that I'm not allowed to mention. These were originally $300.
