I just dont understand how I post something that only costs 100 dollars and then get told to buy something 2-3x what I posted, I understand the want to help me, but if I am posting a 100$ headset then it should be very obvious that I am not willing to spend much more than that if something is better.

You could look at it from the computer hardware side of things, even though you said audio equipment is more of an investment(which it is), what I was told would be the equivalent of someone asking about the best budget gaming processor and then get told that they need a 3930k because a core i3 is just garbage and a joke of a product. smile.gif

The way they (and often me) look at it is that with a $100 headphone, you are probably not going to keep it for long before you upgrade to something more expensive. A lot of us started that way TBH and ended up wasting a lot of money with incremental upgrades. It is simply better to save up and buy something nice, then by a general consumer headphone, upgrade to an entry level headphone, and then moving up to midrange, ect. It is like going to a club where everyone owns luxury cards and you are asking about which is the best Pinto to buy.

TBH I consider a better analogy that you want the best budget gaming CPU and you are looking into the price range of a Pentium 4 and we are recommending a Phenom II. One is what we consider decent from our perspective and the P4 complete garbage.

I hate buying anything used >.< I don't think I have actually bought anything significant that was used, I am not sure, it's just not something that gets me excited lol :/

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
If I buy them and do not like them, then I will return them, but if I like them then that is all that matters, I am not out to please everyone else, they are mine and that it all that matters.

You might as well tell someone who puts a ton of subwoofers in their car that it is stupid, they love bass and you cannot tell them anything that will change their opinion smile.gif

Probably discontinued, which makes the price go up. Same thing happened with the Denon D2000. People still recommend them for the price point they had when in full production, but they can't be found near that anymore.

Hey, if you like them then that is all that matters. Just remember though, people are recommending the headphones they are because they feel like it will provide a substantially better experience and investment, not being an elitist like you believe. At the end of the day, we want people to be happy with the cans they buy, but at the same time, a lot of members can't in good faith recommend something many consider "hot garbage."

They are discontinued yup.
But you should be still able to find them.

And an FYI: I was a bass junky & listen to rnb and hip hop.
As I said - the XB700's destroy them in almost every single aspect apart from one:
Being overly stylish and looking like a cheap pair of £10 candy.

I don't really hate on any brand - I was the one here backing up Beats by dre fro their efforts in audio. But what gets me is when people don't appreciate suggestions.
If you got your heart and soul set on those skullcandies - then go for them - I don't quite understand what the point of the question was....
Oh and I also get what you mean by people recommending things that are well over the price limit that you have - that's happened to me in the past:
"Hi I'm looking for some earphones, not looking to spend over £200 bla bla"
Arrogant noob on head-fi: "Yeah here you go the JH-16's will be perfect for you, because of so and so"
I google them - oh yeah £1600....
*Internet slap*

EDIT:
I looked around - and yeah I couldn't find them at their normal price either - only ones I really found, are sites I don't know if I would personally trust myself (UK and US):
http://electronics.mekky.biz/Sony-MDR-XB700-Extra-Bass-Headphone_i113221
http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/product.aspx?code=AAS-XB700AE&af=50

You also got the ATH-50's you could look at:
http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-M50-Professional-Monitor-Headphones/dp/B000ULAP4U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1369090366&sr=8-1&keywords=Audio-Technica+ATH+M50

That's $50 over budget, but could well be worth the investment.
If you have the chance to go to best buy etc - I'm sure those will BOTH be on display- your skullcandies and the ATH's - so maybe worth trying and seeing what's best?
I suggest taking YOUR source and YOUR music and plugging it into their headphones.
Do bear in mind - some headphones in those stores would have received too much abuse, and thus might not perform as they should or would at home.

Most people on this forum and head-fi just know if someone is actually taking the time to describe the music they like and other aspects of audio they would probably appreciate something that is better build quality and overall SQ I think. Personally if you want skullcandys have fun, maybe they will be dope..
post #15660 of 37803
Well, here then, biggrin.gif

"I am looking for headphone(or even earphones..) for under or around 100 US dollars that have a lot of bass, I do not care what brand they are or what they look like"

Is this better? I honestly am not dead set on the skullcandy in any way but I did not get any real viable suggestions, especially with the huge difference in price of the headphones that were suggested.
