Best 100$ Headphones

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just need some help looking for some new headphones to replace my Bose InEar ones.

I listen to mostly electro house/hip hop kinda music and rock as well.

I dont know if inear noise cancelling headphones exist, or are any good, but if there is a sweet pair post it here.

Over the ear headphones are ok too.

In Ear Noise cancelling Headphone existed, i had one from Sony

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Mdrnc22-Noise-Canceling-Headphone/dp/B000MPNUE6"]Amazon.com: Sony Mdrnc22/Blk Noise Canceling Headphone (Black): Electronics[/ame]

This is what i have...

Works very well, it required a 1 AAA batteries, used it for over a year now with constant use (during travel to school with travel time around 1hr)

The only problem about this headphone is the battery holder is annoying, and the clip is not tight, so if you hit it, it can slip it off, plus the cable line that attached to your L/R Ear is not Y, the L cable is short.

Overall, i like it, sound quality is great, i can match "Bose quality" or better


I had it for $49 from newegg during on sale.

I have this one as well, the sound is very good, nice bass as well. but if you got big ears, i'm telling you now, your ear will start to hurt if putting it on for too long, the cup isn't as big is the only down side, but noise cancelling does it great job! Require 2 AAA

Woot.com may sell it sometime for $55ish



Dont buy those Monster Headphone one with a word that look like a q with red color i tried those on best buy, the quality is not worth the price

there's no point in 'in-ear noise cancelling' as normal standard in-ears isolate much more anyway than noise cancelling headphones.

graphCompare.php?graphType=6&graphID[]=1793&graphID[]=2121&graphID[]=733&graphID[]=1893

A top-end noise canceling headphones (PXC450), a mid-range noise cancelling headphone (ANC7), an in-ear that's know for great isolation (ER4P/S) and an in-ear that has 'standard' isolation for an in-ear (CX300-II). the lower the better.

As you can see, in-ear isolate noise much better passively than noise cancelling headphones. They also sound much better for the price and more portable.

Sennheiser's HD 380 DJ Pro's are awesome. I love them as much as my open air HD 595's. Also Creatives Aurvana IEM's are quite good as well. I see they now have a second gen version, not sure on those. I used to think Bose's Triports were amazing until I heard Sennheisers. Though I hear the Bose In Ear version 2's are very good.

The HD 380's are closed and you really get no out side interference. Also they come with a sweet case.

Actually is not true...

I experience with [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Mdrnc22-Noise-Canceling-Headphone/dp/B000MPNUE6/"]Amazon.com: Sony Mdrnc22/Blk Noise Canceling Headphone (Black): Electronics[/ame], i own it, use it on NYC MTA subway, it does reduce the noise from those Track/Train noise, ofcourse if you don't play any music while having noise cancelling on, you can still hear the outside/background, but when you play the music you cannot hear anything from the outside or nearly can't hear it.

It's very true. The only advantage is that, but paying extra for that as opposed to either muting the volume or taking your earphones off is just silly. In-ears that isolate passively are much better than noise cancelling headphones. the measurements show it.
