My System Specs

Default Where do people in Vancouver area get their headphones?

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a new set of cans to replace my Skullcandy Aviators, which sound pretty good with lossless files but only acceptable with mp3s. However, my local retailers such as BestBuy & Futureshop carry nothing but overpriced garbage.

So, where do people get decent headphones at acceptable prices in Vancouver? I actually live in Langley, but I'm not sure how many people even know of this place, much less being able to suggest stores to buy headphones.

Lastly, I'm loathe to order from online stores when it comes to headphones, since I want to be able to return them if they don't sound good.

My budget is around $170 CAD with tax included. I'll be using them on my iPod Classic 160GB without an amp.
