    Hello !


    I need a pair with super-excellent base. I could do with both headphones or earphones. I need to get 'em for 2 greens, so it could be anything below 200 pounds... Any suggestions?

    I've been looking at Beats Headphones as they are cool and not so expensive.


    the only thing i dont like about them is they havent got a mic to use to on iPhones for talking through them on calls. can anyone recommend me any that are similar to these. price range around £150

    Thanks

    I would go with Sennheisers. You can get a really nice pair with a mic.

    Ew Beats. Those things are utterly blown away by things like Sennheiser HD 515, if you've really got the high-end money; Something like the Sennheiser HD595 are also an option.

    However; if you're looking for just a set of headphones for pointless amounts of bass while on an iPhone (Which doesn't have the most amazing output in the world for audio.), just grab a set of Skullcandy Skullcrushers. They've got enough bass to blow a few doors out, despite being a bit one-tone, and they're available for 40-50 quid last time I checked.

    Beats do have excellent Bass, but are totally lacking in many other areas, one of which is comfort. If headphones aren't comfortable, you won't wear them, end of story.

    Go into Best Buy and try a few pairs on.

    Sony XB700 for bass my friend

    Or if you have the cash, XB1000

    Also, some versions of the Beyerdynamic DT770 are extremely bassy.

    Sennheiser headphones aren't known for their bassiness, just thought I'd point that out.

    Skullcandy Aviators look nice and sound great as well, and have a mic.

    Another model to consider is the Sony ZX701ip which come with a mic.

    If you're looking at Beats, look for the Studio or Pro models, the rest are quite poor.
