EDIT: The Koss are very inexpensive but I'm reading good things... just worried about lifespan. Sub-$20 is not a serious investment, but I'd still like something durable.
Sorry Mike I meant I purchased the SR80's a long time ago and that was the can that was responsible for the slippery slope. Now after spending numerous hours on this forum, post SR80 purchase and many other never ending purchases, I feel sorry for my "lighter" wallet.
The thing about this hobby is that you need to set a budget. Check, you already have that covered <$100. Now I would recommend buying the better product if it is within your budget. As in, buy the SR80i's because they are still under $100 otherwise if you end up with SR60i's, you'll always be wondering about the extra $20 and whether you should have gone for the SR80i's instead. Does that make sense
One Point to Note: I am not saying that something that is more expensive will be better. I am saying if you are stuck between 2 products where one clearly seems like an upgrade over the other, is marginally more expensive, and is still within your budget, go for the more expensive one
