heaphones - best bang for the buck?
on Apr 14, 2010 at 12:50:11 pm

Hi,

I've read many posts here regarding headphones. However, in my case I'm not looking to spend much, say $50-$100.

WHat is the best bang for the buck out there?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Gilles

Thanks Will. I will definitely consider these. Here in Canada they retail for $149 though.

Hello Gilles and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Will's right. MDR 7506 are industry standard for production headphones.

I have no idea why they are that much more expensive in Canada.

Also check prices on the Audio Technica ATH-M50. They run about $150 USD. It'd be interesting to know if the price wnet up or down in Canada.

Thanks Ty,

I'll have a look at the AT but as you both said, the Sony seems like the way to go. I may just bite the bullet and get those.

Thanks!
Gilles
