I've had a set of Shure SE210's for a couple of years now and they have went kaput for the second time. About a year ago the left side got real soft, but they were still under warranty so I sent them in for a new set. Now they have failed me again (barely any volume even at the max setting on ipod/laptop) so I'm looking for something new. What would be you guy's recommendations for a set with a budget of $50? Maybe someone is having some sort of sale right now? I've been looking for a used set, but pickings are slim.
I listen to a pretty wide variety of music, mostly indie type stuff. Some lower-end headphones tend to have overpowering bass, this is something I would like to avoid. They also need to have a modular cable, as I tend to go through them every couple of months it seems.
