Today I purchased a pair of Beats Solo HD and I'm already starting to regret it. After reading a lot of reviews and such I've decided that I'm going to take them back and try to get cheaper and better sounding headphones. However, I have no idea what I'm even looking for as the only headphones I've owned other than these were cheap skull candies...
I've kind of decided on Audio-Technica ATH-M50 after reading reviews, but I'm too unsure to buy them...Are they a good choice?
Any suggestions? :c
I'm willing to spend up to $200 (although cheaper is always a plus!) as long as they are comfortable and sound better than the beats do.
(Also, I have a pretty small head...so I'd need something that wouldn't fall off because they were too big)
We are often asked, “Which are the best headphones?”
WELL, the best headphones sound better than ANY speakers. AND these will run on less power than speakers do, too. You can plug them directly into the computer…and get great sound quality.
IMHO The best headphones are made by STAX. http://www.stax.co.jp/index-E.html
Once you see and hear STAX, you will realize that ALL other headphones are LESS than Stax. Now see what you can get, based on your own budget.
Maybe you don’t have $3000.00 to spend on headphones? Well, there are other alternatives that sound pretty darn good. But, anything less than STAX is a compromise.
The BEST headphones cover the entire ear, like a CUP.
ANY headphone that presses against the ear will cause discomfort and PAIN. You have been warned.
VISIT your local hi fi shop and TRY for yourself, several different headphones.
Reviews mean nothing, compared to your OWN TASTE.
DO NOT allow a salesperson to influence your choices. DO NOT allow reviews on the internet, to influence your taste in sound quality.
DECIDE what is best YOURSELF. TRY first, then BUY.
