recommend me outdoor Headphones!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi,

basically i want headphones for travelling, to uni.i have a 2 hr journey on bus. very frustrating. also used in uni for studying etc. basically outside use only.

budget - around £70 MAX (best if it was around £20 - £50 though)
Other - must look decent (design), and not break

Music I listen to:
- bass
- dubstep
- Cpop, Kpop (if anyone knows xD..)

right now im stunned with these headphones:


what im really looking for is:
- sound quality (decent)
- design ( gotta look cool)
- reliability (doesnt break easily)

as said, im paying quite alot (compared to cheap ipod headphones xD ...which suck and last like 2 months)
so better if it doesnt break.


yeah, whats your suggestion in the headphones i stated?

also, any other type of headphones you recommend?

thanks

Are you open to using in-ears? In-ears are more convenient and isolate better if you're traveling.

tbh, i dont mind lol,

as long as it looks good. =)

because ive got the Goldring NS1000 for gaming. its great, but the looks arent really attractive.

but hey, £50, was worth it. as it never leaves the house. =)

but now, i cant seem to hear that punch in bass music anymore =/
maybe its because i got used to them =/
also, they get too uncomfortable when using for long periods. =/

If you don't go IEMs, I think this might be the only time I would recommend AT M50s. That is if you don't think the Ultrasone 580 is good looking.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/ULTRASONE-HFI-580-Ultrasone-HFI-Headphones/dp/B00101UHS8

But both of those seem out of your price range, so I suspect you're looking for them used?

not better looking than the Aerial7 Tank DJ Headphones, but....they look ok.

reason i put the budget like that is becuase i wanted people to recommend me some cheap and decent one xD

because it takes a big step to buy headphones in the £100+ zones. =/
i mean, what if i break it? that money will be gone...wasted. =/

whereas if it was in the £20-50 range i might actually try to buy. lol.

o, yes, im looking for brand new ones. not used. =)

my friend is going to get this one:

AKG-K518LE
http://hekeke.deviantart.com/art/AKG-K518LE-163911860

which costs around £30

he says it has nice bass and sound quality. (btw he hasnt got it yet.

i was thinking to get somthing similar. =/
but:
-with better padding on top (which the AKG-K518LE hasnt got)

could anyone recommend me one around the £20 - £50 range? just to check out before deciding on somthing worth £60-100
