    201's are pretty good if you're on a tight budget. Don't expect miracles though.

    Is it worth getting a Fiio E10 DAC with my Grado SR80i's in comparison with my laptops onboard sound?

    Most probably, depends on the laptop.

    Opinions on the Samson SR850? It doesn't seem to be a popular pick...

    Should I stick to getting JVC HARX700 instead?

    whats wrong with HTF600

    Edited:

    I say this because I don't like HARX700 that much, they aren't good for gaming, and I've never sued SR850.

    For that price the HARX900 is pretty great for games imo.

    Welp, I see the prices inflated nvm

    I think there are a couple of things going on here: First, the Samson is an open type of headphone, soundstage and detail oriented. It doesn't pump out the bass in other words, it's more neutral. Some people don't like that kind of sound especially if they listen to bass heavy music.

    That JVC used to be the 'go to' headphone for people on a budget. But now that Panasonic 600 is the new 'go to' at that price point. I think the only advantage the JVC has over that Panasonic is it is more closed, if that's important to you.

    Uh, is there any specific reason why I can't find any of these headphones for sale here in Brazil, except for the Koss PortaPro? The only other one I found was the Koss KSC75, but for 60 bucks.

    dunno, a lot of them are imports from Japan or Germany so maybe it costs too much to move them to Brazil

    My HARX900 seem to outperform my ATH-M50's in several games, so I was thinking of getting some Sennheiser 558's for games/movies, whilst I use my M50's solely for doing radio stuff and listening to music. Anyone have these, know if it's a good buy/I should do the 598 mode on them?

    Budget: Under $150 (Allow about $25 for shipping)
    eBay: Preferred
    Country: Canada
    Isolation: Closed, though an open pair wouldn't be the end of the world
    Purpose: Gaming, Music, TV Shows, Music
    Music Tastes: Electronic and rock
    Previous Experiences: Sennheiser PX100 (Decent, though the plastic snapped after a year and a half), Koss KSC75 (I'm fairly happy with them, though I'm not a huge fan of the clip-on style), Meelectronics SP51P (Great earbuds, plenty of bass and they feel very durable)
    Comments: I don't want to buy an amp, they need to be comfortable (i.e. nothing that will clamp my head) and they need to be fairly durable.

    Just bought the Sony MDR-V6s, waiting for them to arrive. Pretty much every review I've read says they're great.

    If I get a desktop microphone, should it be USB or a 3.5mm jack.

    eBay: nope
    Country: Argentina
    Isolation: Closed air, circumaural
    Purpose: Gaming and music
    Music Tastes: Pretty much everything
    Previous Experiences: shitty $10 dollar headsets
    Comments: I'm no audiophile, but I'd like something that didn't get uncomfortable after an hour, and didn't break after a month. It would also be good if it was a headset, or if you could recommend a clip-on mic for $10 or so. Can't use a desktop one, there's too much shit on my desktop and I move my head around too much.

    Also, HEADPHONES. People on steam keep suggesting in-ear and ear-clip crap for my budget.

    I think that you could go for a pair of HTF600's and either a Modmic or the Zalman clip-on thing.

    You could probably squeeze a pair of HD201's and a Zalman clip-on in your budget.

    Ooooh, Sennheiser. Tried a pair of those once. Amazing sound.

    They're $50 in my country, though. I should look around for an US or UK store that can sell them for less than that with shipping included.

    If I recall, Brazil has pretty ridiculous taxes on certain electronics, making normal imports sort of hard to make profitable.

    I also saw the Pioneer SE-M290.
    Is this a good headphone for the money or should i chose a sennheiser?
    Btw, also found the Philips SHP2000, much people say that one has morefull bass (What i like) and it is 10 euro's cheaper than the sennheiser.
    I also had the sennheiser on my head one time in a shop, and with the tip of my ear i can feel the inside of the earshell.

    Think im gonna buy the Philips SHP2000, had a philips on ear with great bass, but the cable broke.
    Btw, is there any difference in the SHP2500 and SHP2000?
    Pff, another edit : Did research on the interwebs and people say the SHP2500 has a volume rocker, longer cable and much better bass.
    Looks like im going for the SHP2500 :D

    I have it worse here, VAT is 21% stacked on top of shipping, makes most electronics TWICE as expensive compared with buying them in the US.
