Hello, having ordered a pair of Panasonic RP-HTX7 headphones.
What are the very best on/over ear headphones for below £50?
KRK KNS8400, B&O H6 (Green), B&W P7, Shure SRH1540, Bose OE2i, Audioengine D3/Microstreamer DAC/amps, Zen Head amp.
AKG451 for just over £50.
What is best between the Fostex and Panasonics?
Also, what about these bargain headphones...
Sennheiser HD 205-II
Cresyn CS-HP600 Titanium
When you look at Innerfidelity's measurements of headphones costing £300 and up, which in some cases have channel mismatches and very significant variances in freq. response with different samples of the same headphone, what can you expect with cheap headphones? - What I mean is, the very name of this site and forum is WhatHiFi, which is an abbreviation of High Fidelity, and which cheap headphones are not. So would you be looking for a particular sound, and could you expect that one person's impressions of cheap headphone 'x' would hold true when you get a sample of that same headphone?
Without the sarcasm then.
What I call reality you are calling sarcasm. I suppose what you want is either someone to lie to you and say "Yes, you can get what you want", or "Just don't worry about all those gnarly little details like freq. response". It's still a high fidelity forum last time I checked, so if you have a question that somehow relates to high fidelity, or just how much fidelity is possible from low-cost gear, then ask straight out and someone will answer.
Without the sarcasm.
I have the K450s and they are excellent and the K451s are meant to be better so that would be 50 quid well spent

You apparently missed the point. It's not about money per se or about being rich. It's about product quality, integrity, and manufacturers and customers who are looking for a bargain and cutting corners, resulting in inconsistent performance and other time-wasting failures. What is your time worth? Nothing? Even if I'm in poverty, I consider my time to have value. And I respect other people's time and efforts.
What point? you came off as an arrogant eejit, end of.
So you say that I'm arrogant when I offer good free advice? Then I say that you are one of those control freaks who like to prevent people from getting information they need. And that's a fact I know from supporting a lot of users who have these problems.
Reported him as you should. Troll. I'd report him for poor spelling if there was a button too.
