HELP on Headphones! -->fix the mistake plz

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So get this, My noob younger bro goes out today randomly picked up a $100 Pioneer SE-MJ31 from BB that I never heard about.

I too have no say in audio equipments but been at overclock.net for long enough that for $100 it was a stupid buy. I tested the headphones but I have no reference to go by so its useless.

Basically I will borrow your knowledge and get the better bang for your buck headphones.

Budget is around 100 CAD

Ive been doing some research and it was giving me a headache so now I need some help to clear my head

Here are my picks (order in price low to high):

JVC RX700
Sennheiser HD 202 II
Sennheiser HD 428
Shure SRH440
Audio Technica ATH-M50

For any genre of music and will be either hooked up to PC with onboard soundcard Realtek ALC888 or iPod Touch and wont be used for gaming.

Thank you for your input in advance guys!

A friend of mine has the Audio Technica ATH-M50s. I have only tried them a couple of times but I have to say that I was impressed with them. I personally prefer open backed headphones and recommend them to anyone that doesn't need to block out outside noise or prevent others from hearing what you are listening to. If you prefer closed backed then the ATH-50s are a great choice.
