Under £200 headphones?
I have been looking at headphones around the same price point and I have often seen these recommended and this place is the cheapest as well:
However, a lot of people say that headphones are a very personal thing and you should listen to them beforehand and also see how they are comfort-wise before purchasing.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
I was in the apple store yesterday getting a new iphone and spent 30+ minutes trying out the Bowers & Wilkins P5 & P3 models, the P3 model was very decent sounding (in a noisy store) and has the sort of fit and finish that cushions the steep initial price of £150, i currently use Grado sr80’s/etymotic er4-p and plantronics bluetooth in ear but i could easily be tempted by the P3’s….might treat myself for xmas.Posted 4 years agofitnessischeatingMember
But get the standard black ones, basically professional audio industry standard…Posted 4 years ago
And in a hope style, you can get spares to replace and repair when/if stuff wears outlodiousMember
I use Sennheiser HD650’s and Bayer 880’s for monitoring. I prefer the 650’s (the 880’s are a bit hifi sounding) but really like them both. The 650’s I got from a store in Germany (can’t remember what it was called) but they were c.£140 + cost of an IBAN. Might be worth a google?
The 650 can go really loud without sounding ragged, they have a bit of a subdued top end, but really, really nice. I had a pair of mid range sennheisers (might have been 595’s) and they sounded pretty poor compared to either the 880’s or HD650’s.Posted 4 years agovorlichMember
I have a boxed pair of SoundMagic HP100s I’ve decide to move on as I’m not using them as much as I thought I would. Bought in August, used maybe 10 times. Looking for £130 posted. Great sounding, but the looks are a bit 😯 for out in public, if that’s a consideration.Posted 4 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
I’m still astonished by my Beyerdynamic DT531. Now 10 years old.
I have a headphone amp, but even just driven off the PC, they are just incredible.
I wear them 3 or 4 hours a day every workday. Never tiring, always natural.
I’ve replaced the pads twice. Still haven’t heard anything as good apart from the top-of-the-range beyers.
They are very open though – as in other people can hear them and I can hear other things.Posted 4 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
I had some Parrot Zik headphones, amazing with an iphone due to the control method with a finger swipe to advance a track to the next or adjust the volume. Bluetooth connection so no wire to snag.
Sold them because they sounded rubbish.
Now got some “in ear” Shure 425’s. they’re superb if you like in ear thingies.Posted 4 years ago
