New Head-Fier
Mar 26, 2008
Hi everyone,

My PX200's have broken for the 2nd time, so I'm looking for a replacement.
I've got an iAudio7 and mostly listen to rock music. (EQ flat though)
I quasi exclusively use my player in public transport, bus, trains... so I'd like my headphones to be closed.

And sturdy. Especially around the wire/cans and wire/jack connections, as it's there my PX200s have failed.

I'm looking for a not too big headphone, or IEMs, max $100-150, what do you guys recommend?

For IEMs, ER6i, UM1, d-Jays, 3/5...
For headphones, HD25, HD 212, HD280, well, don't really have a clue..

thanks for answering!

Try ATH ES7, like them with ROCK. They are punchy, full and rich sounding with pretty nice bass. I listen to FLAC's with no EQ and they sound very good, imo.

If you want small headphones, the HD280 is out. It is really big, and rather vise-like. not the best choice for you.

I agree with blackmore, look at the ES7, or maybe the equation RP21 if you don't mind the orange color.
