post #8171 of 37805
hey well thanks everyone for you inputs especially drjoey and neutrino. ok so after much though ive decided to not go with the hd 280's and look at some other brands such as the a700's, a500's or the shure SRH440's which, from what ive read and also the price, they are a pretty good buy. Though i think i might continue to look around a bit more, do a bit more research before jumping into anything but any other advice or opinions are greatly welcomed.
thanks again all

Just judging from the list, you're looking for closed headphones at the $100 price point right?

If you're willing to mod your headphones, the JVC RX900's might be worth looking into. They definitely compete with headphones in the $100 range at stock, and apparently really shine after being modded. And just like those headphones you've listed, they don't really need an amp, but can benefit from one.

This guide should walk you through it. JVC HA-RX900 modifications

You can take that mod as far or as short as you want to. I myself intend to do this mod once my RX700's arrive in the next week or so.

Hey! I wanna join

I currently own two Sennheiser headsets:
- HD 555
- PC 350 PRO
Am also thinking about buying the RS 140's because of the wireless connection. Any RS 140/130 owners out there that can reccommend this?
