Looking for headphones with detachable cables

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I've been using cheap Sennheiser 202s. They served their purpose for well over a year and they were only $20. The cord finally died on the right ear side. Anyhow, I'm now in search of headphones with detachable cables. Anywhere in the $30 to $60 range, not looking to pay more than that since I'm not an audiophile. Any suggestions?

What do you guys think of the Skullcandy Hesh 2.0 for $40?

Superlux hd681b, superlux hd681evo, superlux hd668b.
The evo seems to be a bit overpriced in usa though. But still extremely good if they are newer batch that are bundled with free velour pads.

Those are cheap audiophile headphones.

Thanks for the suggestions. Does the Superlux HD681B have a detachable cord? Couldn't find info on that anywhere. It looks good for $30 though.

Bah, all the older superlux look the same so forgot that normal Superlux HD681(B/F) didn't have the detachable cable.

The Evo is a new model so it has detachable cable. Ordered mine yesterday for 37$+16$ postage and it comes with a free pair of velour pads (Superlux pads on the left, AKG-240 pads on the right), maybe amazon will drop the price from ~70$ at some point. Or try finding another shop.

How's the sound on the HD668B? It's retailing at $46.50 on Amazon, and it comes with detachable cables. How is it compared with the Evo?
