Hunting Headphones

Recommended Posts

Renvy    0

Hello,

Neowin, I need your help in a quest to search the perfect headphone for me.

I'm now several months looking for headphones and I find a lot of headphones that

qualify but I can't make up my mind.

I'm looking for something that looks super cool, but also has very good sound quality.

My desired price would be 100(130 dollar)-150(200dollar) euros and max 300(400dollar) euros.

I live in Belgium so they have to ship to here.

I listen to mainly to electro music, but also classical music. mostly neutral sound but with a bit bass would be desirable.

I'm not a fan of beats by dr. Dre headphones.

These are my favoroute by far:

I'm a huge fan of daft Punk and these look spectaculair only there out of stock and finding them is nearly Impossible.

Also I'm not sure of sound quality.

Nearly gonna buy this one, but a review said they had bad comfort-ability and sound was not superb.

I really want these red one but you can't find them in Belgium:

These are a bit to expensive not so good looking but they have great sound.

These are ok:

These two can be used both as speakers and headphones, they look cool but also not sure of sound quality:

Those are also cool but not completely my style:

But expensive and also not a hundred procent my style.

I own a pair of V-Moda Crossfade M-80's and I have to say they are great. If you can look past the price I strongly suggest them. :p

Good man. (Y)

I'd recommend some Shure headphones; they're good in the looks department, and the sound quality on a lot of them are incredible. I've got the SRH840, which are fairly high-end headphones (they were actually Shure's highest-end full-size headphones at the time) which retails for ?200, but I got them for ?110 (open box, but you can easily get them for ?150), so that's comfortably in your price range, but since I got them a year ago, they've brought out even higher-end models now; the SRH940, the SRH1440, and the SRH1840. The 1840 is ?600 RRP, so that's way out of your price range, and so's the 1440, which is ?400, but the 940 is ?250, so that's just in your ?300 price range, but as that's the retail price, you should be able to get them a lot cheaper. ;)

Little bit of advice; the Monster headphones you linked look nice, but they're way overpriced. The general rule of thumb for Monster's headphones are that they cost at least twice as much then they're actually worth (in the case of the Beats by Dr. Dre series, I'd say 3x as much), as when it comes to sound quality, they're sub-par, and they usually disguise it by cranking up the bass. Oh, and the fact that on the official site for Monster's Tron products, they state that their surround sound amplifier "Optimizes and upgrades compressed MP3 to CD quality resolution", I'd avoid them at all costs.

You definitely wouldn't go wrong with Shure headphones; they're nicely balanced with a little bit of extra bass. They've been brilliant for me for monitoring studio mixes, which is their intended use, but I also use them with my iPod Classic on the go teamed up with a Fiio E5 headphone amp. Bliss. :)
