I can't seem to find a place to buy the HARX700 in canada =/

Is there any other headphones in my price range that are available in canada?

Thanks.

rx 900s are 50ish on amazon, i got mine for 60 on newegg, so another vote for those. sony xb500 would work in the 50 range.

I have had these for about 2 years and still use em to this day:
Creative Fatal1ty headset

Now hold on before you bash it because it says Fatal1ty. I'm an audiophile and for $50 these sound amazing and are the most comfortable pair of headphones I own. The mic is detachable and fully bendable which I love. Highly recommended. Just be aware they are lightweight but as long as you don't chuck em across the room, they will last for a long time.

I can get the HARX700 at about 65$ (it's the only place in Canada that has it). Is it still worth that price ?

Is there some other headphones that are as good in about the same price range?

A lot of people on these forums seem to love those headphones but since they're a bit over my budget I'd like to know if there are other ones of the same quality in the same price range.

Thanks.

They sound far from "amazing".

Look for Superlux or Samson headphones in Canada for under 60.

669B or SR850 for starters.
