Best headphones for under 200$?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am currently looking for the best headphones that will suit my needs, so I wanted your guys' help!
My max budget is 200$. My main priority is that I'd like the headphones to be noise-isolating or noise-cancelling capable (Sound leak is unacceptable).

I mostly listen to:
Jazz Hip-Hop (Being the most), Dubstep, House, Electronic, Classical, Acoustic and Death Metal.

I am located in Canada.

PS: Nothing too bulky! Thanks!

Audio Technica ATH M50

it does a nice job of sound isolation and doesn't leak much. You can get this puppy from here for a great price ( note the discount code will take $50 off )

I bought mine from here ( m based in Canada too ) and had no issues. Just make sure they input the value of the item properly discounted during the shipping so that you pay the taxes on the lower price instead of the full $200 price.

Don't get the M50s if you game.
I'd suggest the DT770Pro80s or the Ultrastone 580s

Not sure about Canada but I just picked up a Sennheiser HD598 for about $180, awesome deal IMO!

Ultrasone HFI-580's or DJ1's(rebadged 580's/slightly different design).

Great for electronic music and gaming. The sound stage is quite vast compared to my A700's.
