good $50 headphones with rich bass

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 
Can anyone help me find ones that are good?

I'm looking for:

-They don't have to be necessarily stylish but it would be great if they were.
-Rich, deep bass
-over ear
-sound isolating (optional but would be awesome)
-If they can squeeze my head (optional but you get the idea)
-must be $50 or below. I can go a little bit over my budget to possibly $80.

I listen to a lot of hip hop and rap. I listen to everything else besides country.

Sennheiser HD205.


Only buy sennheisers from legitimate suppliers. There are a lot of fakes out there. These are great phones. Sound absolutely great. Bass is among the best I've ever heard for the price.

There is also the HD205-II, which is an updated version.


But, it might not be worth it. I do not own the 205-IIs, but I would assume they are very similar. Just get the originals. Cheaper too.

I Read the reviews for that one and it got alot of mixed reviews for the bass. I really want rock-solid headpphones with deep, rich bass and just want to zone out to music. I need consistent results for good headphones about their bass. Thanks for trying though, think you could look for more? I'm looking for some as well

Sony MDR-XB300.

Seriously great. I have a pair of the next line up, the XB500 and the bass is incredible.

The XB-700's are fantastic. Great bass, incredibly comfortable, and stylish.


The XB-500's are a bit cheaper, but not quite as good.
