Dear Everyone,

I am looking out for some good quality headphones to connect to my Laptop, I intend to use it while watching DVD movies or listening to music on my Laptop. I am looking out for a Headphone which will give me a Good surround sound while watching movies and will give me a strong, Deep, BASS while listening to music as I am into listening Club and Trance Music. Any suggestions that you guys would like to give me. My Budget is around $ 100 or even less then that. Anything in Sennhesier, SONY, Altec Lansing, I am looking forward to it. A good BASS and virtual surround sound is what I am looking out for.

Cheers !

So, do you want open headphones (usually better sound quality for less $$, but let outside sound in) or closed (block outside noise, good for trains and planes). Over the head style, or in ear?

I'm not sure it's really allowed, but I'm selling a pair of Sennheiser HD580's that fit your bill. Do some quick reviews on them, they're open ear-ed but provide some really high quality sound. They're replaced by the HD600's now which cost twice as much used, and thrice new. If you're interested, shoot me a pm, i'm going to post these on the classifieds as well.

Well, I`m sure by now after looking at the date, you probably have purchased your headphones already. However, if not, the Grado SR60,s is a great headphone for those on a budget. I have a pair myself, and the bass is good. But, if you want info, check www.headphone.com/ These are guys, who call themselves, Headphone geeks and just love headphones. There called - Headroom - Right Between Your Ears. Every type of headphone is reviewed, and they have some of the best Headphone amplifiers built.

If you can find some, I recommend the Audio Technica ATH-A500. These are outstanding for the money.
Tell me a little about these. I`ve been reading articles recently on Audio Technica headphones, and they were all good. What price range are these in?

I actually have a pair of Grados right now, the GR60`s. I`m looking to go high end now. I`ve read about The Sennheiser HD600`s for a couple of years. And everyone seems to love the 701`s. But its very difficult to find dealers that have them all, to demo. You would not buy speakers w/o hearing them first, right? But it seems I will have to go that route thru Headroom
From what I have been told, they are excellent, and the people on their staff I s/w have been very good.

My cousin recently got a great price on the Sennheiser HD595`s, $179.00. And I must say, I listened to them directly thru a A/V receiver, barely 2 weeks old, no headphone amp, and they sounded decent. Also, very comfortable.

So,we`ll see what I`m gonna do. It would be nice to have all of them, Beyer DT880`s, Sennheiser HD600/650`s, AKG701`s in white, and Grado RS1, that would be the ultimate. Just switch accordingly!!

I have a friend who has a set of Grados and really likes them he also bought a tube headphone amp and that dramatically improved the sound.

The ATH-A500 are about $100 and they are some of the best headphones I've ever heard and they are by far the most comfortable along with the other ATH models. I have the ATH-A900 headphones because I wanted aluminum cans, but at the store I could not tell the difference in sound between the ATH-A500, ATH-A700, or the ATH-A900. The specs are a little different in these models, but I couldn't hear a difference. Most highly recommeded!

I just adore the Sony MDR-7506. It is the standard (closed-ear type) for media and recording. The accuracy is excellent. I've been using them for over 7 years. They run $99 from just about any professional music outlet.

For the price range you mention, or anyone else, for excellent, accurate and widest frequency sound reproduction, open-ear headphones are the choice of the "pure" audiophile. BUT, they will cost upwards of $300.

Due to my situation and hobbies closed-ear type is preferred.

Several on-line retailers including Amazon have them listed for about $249. I bought mine in Japan a couple of years ago.
