The Viking

Best and most underrated in this category

Pros: Flat, revealing, articulate, yet warm & forgiving. Comfy.

Cons: Chunky cable. Uninspiring looks. Gets toasty in there.

These DT-250 (80 ohm) are just flat-out the best sub-$500 headphones I've yet heard.

My head is about medium size and I wear glasses. Sound: The 80Ohm model sounds rather thick,...
