Beats are horribly overpriced. What model beats are you referring to? AKA: What price range?
yeah I thought they woulda been
erm I'm thinking around 60-100 pounds (I know beats aren't that cheap, but at that price can you get any headphones of equal quality?)
You can try Grado SR60i (open cup) or Denon AH-D1100 (closed cup). If you are happy to spend a little more you can go for BeyerDynamic DT770 or Denon AH-D2000.
Keix is on the ball. Beats, I am glad it was cheap for me.. I'd buy something else over them if I had to pay full price.. the fracture u have to use batteries... they only last maybe 8h... not worth it.
There is Sony MDR-V6, Creative Aurvana Live!, Sony XB series if you like bass probably Sennheiser PX200
I agree.. extremely over priced and the build is so cheap. I just got mine free. Its the only reason I have them. They have tons of problems too.
BeyerDynamic DT770 or Denon AH-D2000... So hard to pick!!!!
To be perfectly honest, neither. Both sounds very boomy to me, sounds just like a pair of Beats with more details...
The Audio Technica AD700 is hard to beat at this price range, so is the Grados MS1i. Unless you wanted tonnes of bass over everything, then the D2000 and DT770-Pro is good.
Well thats what I'm going for. Ra97oR you should check my theard @ Head-Fi. I like the bass on the Beats but they are a cheap build and I want more of a audiophile headphone.
Only "real" headphones I own. I also have some Brookstone earbuds that sound nice for $30 earbuds that I use with my phone and netbook for music when I am out doing things.
I've got a Sony XB300 now but atm it sounds like there's not enough treble (when I use flat/no equalizer)
You probably like more balanced sounds, but I usually recommend Sony XB series to Beats fanboys as a cheaper (and probably better) alternative. Just chucking it in to cover my ass
If you still want the bass and plus a balanced and detailed sound, I can recommend the Shure SRH840 to you.
Can't see how you can get one of those for £60.
He did say £60 - £100, which you can get one at £100.
Ah, in that case there are plenty more options. I thought the price range was about £60, my bad.
Obviously the cheaper the better
I want something LIKE the XB700... but not (assuming the I'll just get imbalanced/excessively bassy music)
My XB300s are great for drum and bass and dubstep but when I turn on a metal track it just sounds like garbage without using a Treble Booster equalizer
To be honest, they ARE garbage. XB700 have a more balanced sound than the other XBs (not heard the XB1000 yet), the XB500 have even MORE bass than the XB300, so its not a "upgrade" as in the sound signature will even be worse.
Audio Technica WS70 and Shure SRH840 is what I can think for having tight impactful bass with good treble and midrange.
The WS70 is kinda hard to get hold of, you might have to import one, but it is still cheaper than the SRH840 at around £70.
SRH840 is a great sounding pair and at £100~ it is very good value too. Of course you can try out the XB700, they are more balanced sounding, but still very bass heavy.
I read good reviews for that Shure one, so I think I'll buy that one in the future
Oh maybe if there's one a step down if I'm low on cash
What about some Alessandro MS1's?
MS1i's are not what I will call bassy, but it does sound pretty good.
I always wonder if we can "train" bassheads to like a more balanced sound, what do you think?
Sennheiser HD515, Sennheiser PC360, Shure 440, Denon D1001, Astro A40, Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1.
<scratches chin> only if I had a rack to display them properly.
nice Unicomp PVT.
I love my Grado SR-60i's, they're awesome.
ive got a pair of those as well. a good all around set of phones at a good price.
