Best budget headphones for Canada

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I live in Canada and i want to buy a nice headphone.
First of all, I was looking for the sennheiser hd201, but they are 40$ on amazon.ca and 50$ in local store (Overpriced since American can buy them for 19.99$).
So my budget is around the 30 or 40 max with tax and shipping fees.
I won't use them all time, only when my family go to bed and im still awake, Im forced to close my speaker.
So I want pretty much balanced headphones because im going to play game (BF3 ) listen to music (metal, rock, hardstyle) and even talk on vent or skype.
Thank you

I've been looking too based on recommendations here.

Everytime I find one, it's way more than the US price.

nice, ill take a look at them.
What about the ATH-T200 ? for 25 $
JVC RX700 are priced to around 35.99 $ (still in budget)

What is important to look in the headphones spec such as :
-Frequency Response
-Sensitivity
thank

also how comfy , the Bass , sound stage , the nominal impudence , wither they are open/close back ..........those need actual trying , you can not chose a headphones only from numbers

as for the T200 , never tried them, but considering their price , dont expect much out of them

after looking almost every shop and google headphone
Cheapest is on ebay at 47 for the jvc ha rx700
and 45 for hd201 .....
grrr dam canada prices ...

EDIT: ok, let say im willing to buy the JVC rx700 for 47.66.
Is there other headphones to consider below 50 $ (now shipping and tax are all included, so its 42$ in a local store for 50 total) ?

NCIX used to have the Koss Portapro for $30 but it seems that they don't carry them anymore. If you are in no hurry then you can wait for Futureshop to have one of their headphones sales again. They regularly have 50% off or buy one get one promotions for their headphones. You can get a Shure SRH440 for $55.

The Soundmagic E10 is also an option if you're fine with IEMs:

Free shipping and be sure sure to change the currency to canadian dollar to save a little more.
