I'm not looking for the best audiophile headset. I'm just looking for a decent headset with a mic that will sound good with music.. Will these work? http://www.walmart.com/ip/eDimensio...eadset/11962558

It's far from the best but it's excellent for its price. However, with your music and your price range, you are better off with a pair of Grado SR-60 or Alessandro MS-1.

Not a fan of Sennies but they do do better than the overpriced brands on the market. If it's strictly for home, look for open headphones as it provides better quality and a larger soundstage. I also recommend Grado as they really bring out guitars and make it sound great.

Anyone got any experience with SLX-Audio TH150?

If not I'm looking for a headset for recording use.
Price range is not too important.

This is a good idea for a thread.

I've currently got these
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...&pf_rd_i=468294

Cheap but quality is good and they don't come out of your ears like most others.

I have these too and used them before I got the Beats by Dre. They aren't bad for $50 or so but no where near what the other ones are.


what are the second ones?

Whats up guys? I have a question for you all so here goes:
I'm looking for a new pair of in-ear ear buds for my Sansa Fuze 8 GB because my Sony MDR-EX38iP's aren't loud or detailed enough.

I've narrowed it down to two pairs of Sennheiser's, the CX 300 and the CX 300 II. Are the CX 300 II's worth the extra money? I listen to bands like Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Children of Bodom, a little bit of Lamb of God, Parkway Drive, etc... (I have the whole list in my profile at the favorite bands thing..) I like to have really clear sound with great bass response, so out of these two, which pair of headphones is better and why?

Thanks!

I'm not a fan of cheaper Sennheisers at all. You can get much better than the CX300 and CX300-II for not much more. I quite like the AKG K319 for distorted guitars, although I would suggest getting some slightly thinner foams for them. The bass is slightly warmer without being wooly, which is complimented by the rather neutral midrange. A good amount of detail too, which is good for lead lines and for helping to pick out actual notes through the distortion.

Got my Little Dot I+ with a bunch of tubes the other day, my recabled Beyerdynamic DT880s should be here next week.

Make a nice change from my AD700s.

Hey, I'm looking for a good set of around ear headphones that would be good for both general listening and recording/mixing. If it is bad to use the same headphones for both, I'll go for the best for general listening for now.

I'm trying to decide between Sennheiser HD 215, 280 and 555. I was able to try on some demo 215s, and they were really comfortable, but I couldn't listen to them (they were broken). I keep hearing good things about the 280s and 555s, but I haven't been able to try them. HD555s are $220 where I live, are they worth it? Which would be better for what I want to do?

I need some headphones for less than $30. Should I get the Sennheiser HD201? I need closed headphones for monitoring while drumming, for wearing when singing, and for just listening to stuff.

I have these...

Sennheiser PXC-350
Excellent noise cancelling headphones. For under $200 these are really good. Great sound quality, they feel really sturdy, not like my previous Sony junk. I'd highly recommend these to anyone looking for a good pair of noise cancelling.

I use a used pair of recabled Beyerdynamic DT770's - the 250ohm version - 2005 consumer edition I'm the third owner, but they're in good condition. Here's a pic of the actual unit:

I need some cheaper (less than $30) around ear headphones that still sound good for most kinds of music, something with a little more bass would help too.

I skimmed through the thread and these two came up, are they any good?

Does it really have to be around-the-ear headphones? Because the best one's that I know for that money are the Sennheiser PX100 and Koss KSC75, which aren't around-the-ear...

If they must be that type, sorry, I don't think I can help you with that.

I'm not really a fan of in ear headphones as they don't block as much sound out, which I like when listening to some phat jamz.

I'm really just looking for the best around ear headphones I can get for that price, not the best headphones in the world.

How's about these?

The PX100s and KSC75 aren't in-ear btw They're "supraaural" headphones which means the earpieces lay on your ears instead of around them. All the same, they still definitely don't block out sound, but they're great.

I'll try to see what I can find regarding those ones you're considering.

Thanks, after reading a few reviews, the Sony V150s are just walkman headphones in a different package. I'd still like to hear what anyone thinks of those panasonics and sony xd100s though.
