    I want to buy a cheap around-ear headphones but I don't know which to get ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I have razer Hammerhead(which is a little broken now since the left ear is louder than the right ear), Kraken(a little more comfortable than Electra, but it's not as comfortable as I thought) and Electra(One of the best cheap Headphones in my opinion). What headphones are you rocking?

    I have Sol Republic Tracks HD which I have really enjoyed but haven't really taken care of. They're beat up, and the sound isn't as good as it once was, maybe I messed with the drivers. Anyways, I'm looking to buy some Sennhieser Urbanites off of Amazon. They get great reviews, and they aren't to expensive, ~70 bucks.

    I don't like those kind of headphones personally, I want a headphones that would fit my entire ear inside the earcups. But the urbanites are great I believe.

    Well, they make Urbanite XLs that can fit your entire ear inside the cans.

    How much do you want to spend? Around 100 or less?

    Well promoting other brands is not allowed on this forum, so I'm scared to say anything.

    But there is one brand, which is not gaming related, so it's not a direct competitor/rival to Razer, and it is named Pioneer.

    Don't kill me pls

    Just ordered the Urbanites from Amazon Prime, and I will get them tomorrow. I can let you know how the sound is, if you want. The Urbanite XLs have the same drivers and sound, they're just over ear instead of on ear.

    I dont think razer products would go until < $75 but for your choices. Hammerhead is more of the base type such that you can hear the base sound more than other sounds. Kraken is quite a good headphone for gaming due to its weight and the sound it makes. Although the sound sometimes is too loud :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. I have never tried electra so yeah

    If you want a cheap but decent pair, check out the Monoprice "Premium Hi-Fi DJ Style Over-the-Ear Pro Headphone". I've been REALLY surprised at how well they work out for software defined radio applications, and they're incredibly cheap.

    Ok so I'm listening to various types of music with my Urbanites now, and they really are fantastic, from rock to folk to edm. The bass is very very good and definitely boosted, but a little less than beats (they don't rattle your head, but it's definitely punchy.) The main thing with the urbanites is unlike other bassy headphones like Beats or my Sols or like the Adaros (from what I've heard) is that the mids and highs are crisp and clear, not muddy. They're supper accurate, and you really hear the little details you couldn't hear before. They also look nice and seem to be made of really quality materials. I totally recommend them, and if you want, you can get some over ear XLs for ~$90 on Amazon (as opposed to the MSRP of $250) or the on ear kind for ~70, which I got.

    If it's just for listening to music, always recommend SkullCandy. I still have a couple pairs, one is over ear, the other is in-ear. I love the quality of sound, and the price points are awesome. You can even get lucky and find some at Bookmans, or Ross if you live in the States cheaper than other retailers.
    I found these at a local Ross for $25 vs this

    The Roccat Kuro Stereo and the SteelSerier Siberias are pretty nice.

    Giving opinions on other products is not promoting them, but saying "hey tell me what to buy but that isn't made by Razer" kind of is. Now OP clarified that they want something cheaper than anything Razer does make, so I was ok with it even though it was flirting with the line, but then when direct competitors to Razer get brought up and recommended its kinda not cool.

    Case and point:

    so, sorry guys, gotta shut it down.

    P.S. my advice is check out Woot.com if you need cheap. They sell overstocked and refurbished stuff at ridiculous discounts. They even have Razer gear sometimes. I got Razer Chimeras 5.1's as a gift for a friend off there. Also my favorite headphones before I got my hammerheads this christmas were $100 earbuds that I paid $30 for on that site. The Adaro series is really nice for music, maybe they will have some refurbished Adaro's available.
