Hello Fellow Forumers.

It's been a long time since my last post on the forums but I am back.

I am wanting to find out your choice of headphones?
I am busy looking at headphones for R750 (Max Budget R1000). I have a Pair of Corsair vengeance 1500 for gaming and love them but they are USB powered. So I am now searching for 3.5mm headphones to use for music listening mainly on my phone. I have in Philip SHS8000 in ear headphones and aren't looking for in ears either.

I want to know what you can recommend. Unfortunately with prices changing I cannot refer to previous threads as they are not current.

What I have looked at and considered:
Sennheiser HD 205 - II : R700/R800 (Govan Mani/Dion Wired)
Sennehiser HD 419 : R700 (Dion Wired or Govan Mani)
Philips FX3BK : R500 (Dion Wired)
Sennehiser HD 438 : R950 (Govan Mani)
Gemini DJX 05 : R350 (Musica)

Please Give Me your review/Opinion on these headphones.

Uses:*
Music Listening: EDM, Trance, POP, Deep House, Progressive House. I like Low end but don't want it to
drown the high end. (Song eg: Falling in Love will Kill You (Hunter Square Remix) ; Be Together (Vanic
Remix) ; Locked Away (Jump Smokers remix / original) ; I Found You (Matoma
Remix) ; Skrux - You and Me.
I also Liste nto Radio songs like: Love Me Like You Do & Freaks.
Movies/Series : Anime: Sword Art Online; Angel Beats; Akame Ge Kill; Game of Thrones; ETC.
* The uses will be mainly on mobile as I use the corsair on PC. (Samsung Galaxy S series Device)

I hope the forumers can help me.

I would consider Audio Technica if I can purchase them locally. Not into Shipping

Have a Great Day/s

Got these for R739 when they came on special, use them with my iPhone and apple devices and the sound is awesome, Im a big Rock fan so these do nicely.

Adding my voice to the Sennheiser crowd. Still the best headsets I've ever bought.

Can't go wrong with Sennheiser. Had a pair of 212 way back and upgraded to HD380s recently. Good build and sound quality.

I just use the ones that came in the box with the phone. I just read the middle class report. I can't afford better ones.

Superlux are the only headphone to get on a budget.

I have used that link before and purchased from Terrys before.

Saw these this morning on MyBB.

Looks interesting and cheap. No idea about the make though :eek:

I'm not trying to pushy or anything but if you guys have any sense you'll listen to me.
I have produced music for well over 13 years and have experience with quite a few different sets of cans.

Superlux is the only option at that budget.
They compare to headphones in the R4000 range due to their drivers.
