headphones
« on: August 13, 2012, 08:36:45 PM »
Hi I hope  I'm posting in the right place.  I am looking for a good ( $200 range) pair of head phones. I tried to do some research but I am getting a bit confused by all the different types eg... Dynamic, Open air, Closed . I would like to know if anybody has some knowledge about them or any experience in buying something in that price range.   It does not have to be noise cancelling and would like them to be over the ear (good sound quality is a must as in over style or other features ) .     Any response is appreciated.  Thank You.

I like these. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDR-V6-Monitor-Series-Headphones/dp/B00001WRSJ/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1344905194&sr=8-8&keywords=sony+headphones

Though I have a feeling this isn't exactly what you're looking for.

If you are willing to go to $300 then the Bose quiet comfort 15's are definitely the way to go. Great sound quality

Thanks, though I heard/read that their best strength is in their noise Canceling and they lack a bit in their sounds quality compared to sennhieser, akg, beyerdynamics.  Though if noise canceling is a must for you, they are considered to be one of the best balanced between the noise canceling and sound quality

For the budget-conscious, I will swear by these:

http://www.amazon.com/Shure-SE215-K-Sound-Monitor-Black/dp/B004PNZFZ8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344780410&sr=8-1&keywords=shure+se215

After breaking my first pair(stepped on them and the earpiece snapped in a freak accident), I spent about 2 months doing research before coming right back to these. There is no active noise-cancelling technology, but I swear that even without any music playing, the ability of these earbuds to block out sound is downright scary. I HAVE to take them out when someone is talking to me, even if theyre standing right next to me. Add to that how comfortable they are(I can wear them for hours on end) and the sub-$100 price tag, and I'm fairly certain that these are the best noise-isolating headphones(earbuds) that $100 can buy.

If you are looking for over-the-ear phones, my vote goes to these:

http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD448-Closed-Circumaural-Headphone/dp/B002DGTGO0/ref=sr_1_13?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1344780628&sr=1-13&keywords=sennheiser+hd

They don't compare to the Bose QC15s or Beats as far as noise-cancelling technology, but they are just as(if not more) comfortable, produce amazing sound quality, and do as good of a job at noise-cancelling as $100 will buy.

I just bought myself a pair of Audio-Technica ATH M50 I got a very good deal on them.  Anybody have/used them to let me know what I'm going to expect?
