OFFICIAL: Headphone questions in here or on Head-Fi

The Technology subforum of Small Talk has been getting a lot of threads from people wondering what headphones they should get. Since the headphone gurus on hand are in limited amounts, I am going to suggest you take your questions to a place more fitting for headphone discussion.

I am not advertising Head-Fi, but am advising you to take your headphone questions there instead of here. There are far more knowledgeable headphone gurus there that can help you out. This thread was requested by our fellow PBN user/moderator "Prairie" and I hope people pay attention to this thread.

Links for your time:

www.head-fi.org - Just about the best place you can go for headphone-related questions and answers.

www.headphone.com - Not the greatest selection of products but for the ones they have, they have very informative pages on each one.

I also recommend that no one recommends Skullcandy or Bose products to anyone. If you do, be prepared to receive the worst flames possible.


If you have headphone questions and do not wish to take it somewhere else, take it to this thread and only this thread. Please do not make new ones.

I guess I'll actually make quick use out of this thread.

At around 50 bucks, what's a pair of comfortable and durable full ear headphones to be used straight from a laptop?

Think the front headphone jack on a H/K AVR 146 will be amped enough (or at all) to drive some decent headphones?

Picked up a pair of Sony MDR-V150's for $19.99 at Staples today.

Pretty ****ing good for the price, not lacking in the bass department and the treble still breaks pretty clean.
Well spent $20.

I've had a pair of those for about 6 years. I upgraded from those to Grado SR60s and I have to say I'm ashamed I ever thought the V150s were good. Haha. As long as you're pleased, it's good.

Just got my SE530s in today... they sound just like my old E500s (surprise!) and... and well, the output of my laptop sounds like *******.

That is all.
