Help deciding between a few different budget headphones.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys! I'm looking to get my brother-in-law some decent headphones for Christmas. I am hoping stay within my budget of $50. I have never personally heard any of these on the list I've come down to. He has a slightly bigger head, listens to a lot of guitar, metal, and vocal music. I'm getting these for him to use mostly in his apartment for movies and music. Here is the list I've worked down to.

 

1. Takstar pro 80/gemini DJ HSR-1000 (Slightly out of my price range of 50 bucks, but I have owned a pair of Takstar HI 2050, and I loved them. So if the quality in these is better I'll spend the little extra.)

 

2. Audio-Technica ATH-M20x (I've tried a pair of the M50x, and I loved them. If these compare in quality and comfort, that would be great!)

 

3. Phillips Citiscape Uptown (I've found a pair of new ones on ebay for 50 bucks)

 

4. Superlux HD661

 

5. Superlux HD681 EVO

 

6. Koss DJ100

 

Any help would be appreciated here guys! He doesn't own any good cans, so any of these will really be a step up for him. I'd just like to get the ones that would fit his taste in music, and his big head the best :P Thank you for your help!

The Citiscape Downtown are being blown out - you can do better than $50 on those, especially if you are willing to buy a color other than black:

Whoops! I totally meant Uptown rather than Downtown, my mistake!
