I know you would have probably thought this was a troll thread haha.

Its not. I wasnt much into audio. So i have been playing guitar and singing for a few years (at the local bars)

I listen mainly to reggae and folk. Rap once in a blue moon, (TODAYS RAP sucks IMO) Anyway I record and listen to play back.

Im sure you guys saw my thread a while back about getting beats and was most likely closed haha. I payed $80 for the Monster beats SOLO. On ebay. I was a sucker. They sound better than anything Ive ever had because I have had nothing else. Besides my Galaxy 3 headphones that came with it. To me I liked the way they sounded.

Anyway What Kind of headphones for under $80 to kill the beats i have? Im sure i can sell them at the local high school to the "Cool Kids" since a brand is more inportant than performance.

I do agree with all the reviews these are not worth the money. But im well educated on Overclocking the ****E out of everything based with windows haha. So im looking to get into sound since im trying to record reggae acoustic.

I MISS YOU CALIFORNIA!

I really liked my ultrasones ( HFI 550 and Proline 750 ) for acoustic, however they lacked in male vocal range. :\

Then there were my AKG K240's which really pronounced the male vocal range, but maybe a little bright and slow for acoustic.

... I think I had something for you, but now that I am posting, I either don't, or I forgot...

Everything is better than beats...

I cannot think of anything off the top of my head ATM, but I am sure some others may be able to answer that question better than I can.

Hmmmmm up your budget and try to snag the audio technica M50s for 100 bucks. It will take some searching, but it is doable.

It sounds like the headphones need to be some what portable, but still work as audio monitors. I don't know what headphone in your budget does that job better than the M50s.
