Need help finding good Ipod headphones

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. as the title says i need help finding some headphones. i already got rid of the crappy stock ones and right now am using a ok pair of sony inear headphones. so Right now i can get a pair of Monster Beats Solo headphones for 179 Plus a 10% staff discount (norm price is 200) and i know that for that price i can get better but the only thing is i would need to order them and i dont mind that biggrin.gif

so what im looking for in a headphone.
-Prefer over-ear style but will be fine with on-ear if it comes down to it
-My music taste is everything from Country to rap to dubsted to Rock so something that will sound good all around
- Durable. I live in the North were temps can be -40C and i walk around in the cold so i need something that will last
- dont matter if its open or closed ear cup but closed would be prefured

thats all i can think of right bow but feal free to ask anything else and i will try to answer as best i can

(PS Sorry about spelling!!!!)

I hear the AT-M50's are pretty good! I sure they are under $180. Closed headphones which are nice to listen to music on.

Also many Sennhesier headphones are great. I have a pair of HD 202s. Cheap but awesome and durable. Look into them!

You mean the ATH-M50 lol
I like them too, pretty nice cans for bassy music. Bass isn't too powerful.

And Sennheiser isn't cheap eh-smiley.gif

Main thing to remember is, don't get Beats. The sound is terrible for its price.

ya i was looking at Sennheiser but they have so many choices so i think ill just narrow it down to some i liked and see what you all think. also i still wanna know how they would deal in the cold temps if i should be worried at all.

so i was looking at the Sennheiser HD449's how would they compair to the ATH-M50's in overall sound quality and durability???

Even at $200, the Beats would be a waste of money.

Are you open to using in-ears? Those would be more suitable for portability and your headphones would not have to double as your earmuffs.

ya im more then open to using in-ears aslong as they are the ones that have the slight angle for best sound and for comfort factor. i was looking at some Ultimate Ears buds but still dont know what would be the best buy. i just like cans as they seem to have better sound then buds from my experiences but i would be more then happy to be proved wrong yet still having good audio
