$100 Headphones

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I hate making a thread for this, but I'd like to know for the $100 range which headphones should I be looking at?

I live in Canada so if I'm buying online, it needs to be able to ship to Canada within the ~$100 range. I currently have eH250's and love them but I want something cleaner.

Thanks


How are these: DBI Pro 700 Headphones?

Well, all I can say is here in America you can get the Sennheiser HD 555's here new on amazon for around $850 so look for those online. $85 for those headphones here should be around $100 in Canada

EDIT: LOL did I say $850?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I meant $85 XD

Sorry to post already, but how are those headphones in my previous post? The DBI ones, comparatively to the HD555's. -- If you know of them

TBH never really heard of them, and the seller is targeting them for FPS games. If you are looking for $100 headphones strictly for gaming, look more into those headphones.

BTW another suggestion I have are the Sony MDR-7506 Professional Large Diaphragm Headphone. They are around $85 USD here in the US so I don't know about canada, but if there is any way you can get them, it should cost you around $100 shipped.
I have been doing a lot of browsing and the HD 555's are aimed at classical music which doesn't really involve bass and they leak A LOT of sound. I remember looking @ these headphones and they are great for music with a little bit of bass and all of that, and the audio quality overall is still very crisp. I will mostly be wearing headphones on the bus and after school so the Sony's will be great.
