PostI need some headphones
by Qikz » Sun Oct 09, 2016 6:48 pm

I stupidly didn't check my pockets of one of my bits of work clothing and I've put my headphones through not only my washing machine, but also my tumble dryer. I'm a royal moron and need to order some new headphones. I don't need anything too special and I don't have too much money spare. Until now I've only been using the Samsung ones that came with my phone.

Preferrably from somewhere I can order from to get them delivered as soon as possible as without headphones I'm somewhat stuck on my commute. Any cheap but ok recommendations?

I have these, but the red ones. They're great, and I've seen them come recommended by others elsewhere, too.

I had a look on the headphones subreddit after speaking to a friend. I'm thinking of going with these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Monoprice-Prem ... B007SP2CO2

They seem to have decent reviews, but I'm unsure on them.

If you want over the head, headphones look at the akg k451 pretty good for the money.

I can vouch for the sound magic e10 they are great.

If you want in-ear headphones and you don't buy E10s, you're doing it wrong.

Well I went with the E10s. If you're all wrong, you're all dead to me!

I bought a pair a couple of months ago after my old Sennheisers finally died. You've nothing to worry about, they really are great headphones.

How much for? If you bought them at £30-£40 I wouldn't bother, based on what you said:

I would get some headphones around the £15 mark.

+1 E10s, good choice.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

strawberry float me these sound 100 times better than the default Samsung pair I had before. If only I was super rich and could try one of the super high end headphones o_o

That's the thing, SoundMagic nobody had ever heard of (even now) a couple of years ago.

You just don't need expensive headphones.

That and Samsung don't "do" headphones at all so yes they would be shite.

Don't be a hoe - get beyerdynamic DT 770 pro or 880 (closed / open). There's a reason why all top studios have them and only them.
