I love my DT770 Pro 80ohm headphones, but during long sessions, they tend to... give me headaches, I feel like my ears are being punctured (little extreme) and need air. I am going to college and do not want to bring my ginormous HS80m studio monitors with me, as they would be cumbersome on a small desk and I don't want anyone to damage/steal them, so I need something that allows my ears to breathe. I don't want anything to replace my DT770's, but I do want something to compliment (or contrast?) them.
I have an E-MU 1616m. The headphones I am considering right now are SR225i and K701. My budget is <$200. What do you guys suggest?
Also, I am thinking of buying a used pair, is this a good/bad idea?
edit: If it helps, my music taste to goes from house -> hip hop and back usually. I've also been listening to some classical but that probably won't last.
