For closed headphones in that price range, these seem to be well recommended:

Koss UR-20 Home Headphones

In any case, here's a shortlist of headphones for now that you can weed through and break down:

Sony MDR-XD300
Sony MDR-XD200
Sony MDR-XD100
Sennheiser HD420
Sennheiser HD201
Philips SHP2500
Philips SHP2000
Philips SBC HP820
Panasonic RP-HT275
Koss UR21
Koss UR20
JVC-Victor HARX500
JVC-Victor HAG33
JVC-Victor HA-G55
AKG K44
Aiwa HP-X222

Are you simply looking for circumaural headphones (around-the-ear) or does it have to be closed too?

open vs closed headphones (just in case)

I really don't mind either, but I'm leaning a little closer to a closed, but again, I'm not picky, I'm just looking for whats good in the price range.

Huh, I just got a pair of Sony MDRV150s yesterday, and I have to say, they're pretty good headphones.

The bass doesn't mud up, and the treble remains intact, both of which tend to be a problem with low-end headphones. (Especially the last set of earbuds I got a while back... They were so bad. They literally broke in less than a week. *shudders*)

I use them for listening to music, and they sound pretty good. Maybe not as good as a pair of higher-end AKGs or anything like that, but that's obvious.

What would be a good, relatively cheap (under $100 preferably) set of headphones that are particularly good in the bass department? Noise canceling is not much of an issue for me, and I'd prefer over-ear. I've been looking mainly into Sennheisers, and my friend as a pair that sound great, although I forget the model. Any help is appreciated.

I have a pair of sennheiser cx300 ii, and for the price they are great. But I will be investing in a good pair of headphones soon for about £70, can't wait

I have a pair of Wicked Audio Reverb's that I got at my local FYE for ~$35 if I remember correctly. Anyhow they are very nice headphones and have plenty of bass to them, yet a lot of clarity too. Are they better than Sennheiser's? Doubtful, but I like them.

My 2 cents.

^ Thanks, I'll check those out

These aren't over ear, but does anyone have any experience with these?

They're just within my price range, and seem to pretty much have all the specs I'm looking for.

Edit: On Amazon they're only $42, so they're actually well within my range.

I'm looking for some in ear headphones that aren't absolute shit at around $30-$40. I like a bit of sparkle in the high end, and I'd prefer if they had a decent bass response too, but that seems like it might be too much to ask for in a cheap set of headphones. Thanks.

Sennheiser CX300 ii

Best cheap in ear earphones you can get. You can probably pick them up online for around $30

I use these



They're really annoying because the wire keeps retracting when you run. I used to have a pair of half-decent Panasonic headphones but they recently broke... I need a new (cheap) one.

I'm looking for some new headphones that will be used in my music course at college which involves recording and sequencing etc. I would like them to cost about £35 and be over ear (i'm pretty sure thats what they're called).

So far I have seen these;

Sennheiser HD 205
AKG K99 Semi-Open Circumaural Headphones - What is Semi-Open?
Sennheiser Hd 203

Which of these headphones will bet suit me? or what others should I be looking at.

I think so far it's between the Sennheiser 205's or the AKG's.

Just remembered I saw a pair of those HD 205's lying around in my house so gave them a go... Lifeless is basically how I'd describe them, the highs were on the tinny side and the fit was very tight, but I probably have an abnormally large head. Then again I did A/B them with a pair of Shure SRH 440's so probably not the fairest test in the world. Still though at that price I refuse to believe that's the best sound you're going to get

Ok thanks, i'll cross them off the list. I think the AKG's look good but i'm stil unsure about what the semi-open thing is.
Any others I should look at?
