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.

Photography/Gaming build: i7-4770K, NH-D14, Z87 Sabertooth, 16GB Ripjaws X, GTX 780 OC DirectCU II 3GB, M500 480GB, Caviar Black 2TB, Dual Red 4TBx2 (RAID 1), XFX Pro 850W 80+ Gold, Graphite Series 600T SE White
HTPC build: i5-750, Hyper 212+, P7P55D Pro, 8GB Ripjaws X, R6970 DirectCU II 2GB, Caviar Black 640GB/2TB, Caviar Green 3TB, Seagate Barracuda 3TB, Strider Plus 750W, CM 690 II Advanced
Mobile Media: Asus Transformer Infinity 32GB w/ keyboard dock

London Drugs? They have a decent selection last time I went there.

EDIT: Here's a thread from HeadFi: Where to buy Headphones in Vancouver?

You'll find it useful. Kinda far from Langley tho :(
