Need help choosing good headphones for 5k budget
« on: November 14, 2013, 02:24:04 PM »
I need some suggestions on what headphones to buy for a 5k budget.  Pang sipra ng kanta sa iPod at pang nood din ng movies.  Gagamitin din sana sa guitar amp pang monitor.  I was thinking of Marshall Major FX.  Any suggestions?

Can't go wrong with the Superlux HD681 EVO, best in class, and costs only 1.9k sa Egghead Galleria. Mabilis maubos yung stocks nila though.  :-D

Thanks for the suggestions. I bought myself an akg k619. Very nice sound but the plastic frame can break easily. After 3 months of usage, it broke. I had it replaced since it has a 2 year warranty. Let's see if it breaks again...

Sayang di ako nakareply dito. Grado SR80i/SR60i for open back cans, iGrados for in ears, and I would have agreed with the Marshalls and the Superlux ones for closed back cans.

Avoid Superlux. They sound dull and their ear pads wear off easily. For the same price range, get Audio-Technica instead.

They don't sound dull to me, not to my ears. Anyway, if you do have 5k, add a little bit and get the ATH-M50, the prices have already decreased to around 5-5.5k.

sa Egghead sa Robinsons Galleria yung SR60i nila nasa 4K++, yung SR80i 5K++, cash. Sabi ko nga sa kanila i-tip nila ako kung may price drop sa i series kung magdadala sila ng bagong e series  :wink:

I forgot to mention, just the cheap Superlux cans. Those ones are actually on the bright/shrill side. Yung mga mas mahal yung super dull. The durability, well, yun  :| But for monitoring the amp, the cheap Superlux isn't a bad choice.

For use in guitar monitoring I'd rather buy Samsung stock earplugs (600 pesos or so) than Superlux. I have a Superlux HD660, and compared to it my Samsung earphones have better isolation and more neutral sound.

Ay wait, I haven't heard any Superlux on a separate headphone amp. Baka naman maganda ang tunog pag boosted. Try ko tonight pag-uwi.

I did get to try the cheapo Superlux through one of those headphone amps they have at Egghead. Might have contributed to better tone. I'd have to agree with the stock earbuds though, pati sa Apple. They're more balanced than most other consumer headphones in the price range.

how do these compare to the M50?

I don't know for sure, pero it says here that the M40x has less/tighter bass and lighter build: http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-M40x-Professional-Headphones/dp/B00HVLUR54
