Default Headphone review suggestions

Does anyone have any suggestions for headphones that I can review on my website? (www.theperfectsound.wordpress.com)

Any feedback on my website would be appreciated as well.

DT48, LCD-2, HD 800 :P

Advice: not skullcandy, brands that are actually good! Start out with some small stuff though, unless you can actually afford the above.

From your site and assuming you are reviewing quality headphones that a decent number of people might get then I suggest the following:

Denon d2000, Audio Techinica ATH-AD900, Earsonics SM3, Sennheiser HD650 (with amp maybe), shure srh840/940, ultrasone pro 900. Then later move up to the bigger boys like

LCD-2 (possibly the best headphone ever), HD-800, denon ad5000/or 7000, etc.

If you're starting off on the cheap end you should definitely consider the Koss KSC75's. They can be had under $15 (http://www.amazon.com/Koss-KSC75-Por.../dp/B0006B486K) and their sound quality is very incredible for such a low price. I like them much better then some $100 + phones I've tried.

They are not closed headphones or they do not cancel/reduce outside noise so they're not ideal for noisy environment like riding the bus or something. Also, you might have to turn your mp3 player up a bit because they're 60 ohms. However, they're great for exercising.

I was going to bookmark the page, till I saw the skullcandy review - I'll try again when some Sennheiser, AKG, AiAiAi's, Sony's, JVC's, Panasonic, and various other good brands are reviewed.

Wow, I must be just delving into the world of headphones. I thought that skullcandy was one of the better brands. But I guess that from what I read here, they must just be a step up from cheap sonys, Koss, JVC, et cedera.

My budget is pretty low right now. (Unless someone wants to donate) Seriously though, I am trying to put myself through college, (hopefully you all know that that isn't cheap) so I can't afford much right now.

My hope is to someday be a source for people like I was(/am) with headphones. People who want a better sound, but don't know where to go to find it.

Thanks all,
jbgrzy

ironically most people consider JVC, Sony, and Koss better. Its all subjective though. Try the JVC air cushions off amazon.

Yea, JVC Marshmallows or JVC Air Cushions should be better than SkullCandy Ink'd. But IDvsEGO is right, it's all subjective. Generally, SkullCandy doesn't have a good name unless you talk to people who like Beats and whatnot.

and it depends what you value. read my reviews and you will see that I value comfort mroe than some. I think the air cushions may be a bit dark sounding but the comfort more than makes up for it.

Try Superlux 668B. Cheap and cheerful quality entry headphone.

Oh and the low end Sennheisers as well as the Koss stuff.

Thanks to all who read and rated my reviews. Just a question though, did you rate my reviews? Or did you give your rating of the headphones I reviewed?

Thanks,
jbgrzy

Well, I rated your SkullCandy review, and my rating just happened to be the same for the phones and your review. I had your review in mind, though.

The review wasn't terrible, but I think you may be a little bit inexperienced. Personally, I think you should get your hands on several pairs before you start reviewing because that probably would help you to get more perspective on what a good phone should sound like. To many people, stock earbuds that come with whatever player they get sound fantastic to them, until they hear high-quality files played on high-quality headphones.

Thanks for the initiative, though, btw.

Thanks for your advice and criticism. I know that I am inexperienced, that comes with only reviewing two headphones, but I am sure I will improve over time.

I would love to get my hands on some other headphones, but I just don't have the money. I hope to have some soon.

I never liked stock headphones, they were all garbage. For a while I used $10 JVCs or Sonys, but after a while, I wanted more. I can't remember why, but I was led to believe that skullcandy was a "premium" brand of headphones. Now I am hearing different. (I would like to know what everyone's beef with them is.)

Do you have any advice about how I write my reviews? Is there something missing? I do know that one of the major problems with describing sound is the lack of words to describe sound.

Thanks,
jbgrzy
