Good headphones  Reply with quote  

Hello music listeners and recorders.

I've done some of my own research, but I thought I would come to this once great mecca of knowledge. I am looking for a decently priced pair of headphones that will provide my ears with comfort and good sound for their price. I am interested in all sorts of price ranges. If they could be ordered right from amazon, that's a plus!

So I would like to use them both for listening while recording and just leisure.

Any suggestions?

I picked up these on a deal for $65 refurbished. they sound great, Especially with FLACs, and double as a phone headset. The kevlar wrapped wire is super sturdy, too.

I still want a pair of Grado's, though. They have awesome sound.

In other headphone related news, Apple just bought Beats by Dre for $3.2 billion, which might make Dre the first hip-hop billionaire depending on exactly how much of the company he owned and what not. Why they spent that much on a shitty headphone company is beyond me, I guess their marketing really was that good though. Here's a video of Dre celebrating with Tyrese.



(Also, dude just sold his company for billions and he got drunk of Heinekens? Dre should get his priorities straight.)

I've had a pair of these for about a year and a half, for the price they're amazing. Check the reviews online, lots of people love em.

I have an acquaintance that bought Chinese bootleg Beats-By-Dre for under $20 with free shipping from some obscure black market website... and I was surprised by the quality of sound.

He said, "They just reverse engineer the technology.. and sell it without paying patent and copyright fees."

And I added, "When they make 3D-printing affordable for normal people, it'll be even cheaper! We can just buy the circuitry and print our own plastic shells!"

Then I looked over my shoulder to make sure Bose, Chevrolet and Mattell execs weren't about to kill me.

I have the same headphones as Mancabbage posted (ATH-M50) and they rock. I got the coiled cable, and bought a slappa case for them.

I paid 105.00 for the headphones about a year and a half ago, don't regret it one bit.

I've heard great things about these. Hopefully they don't squeeze my head or die unexpectedly like some reviews say.

edit: Eh, being refurbished makes me a bit nervous on these.

I figured this was as good a place as any to put this. Dre is about to become a billionaire.
