Considering an AKG K701 65th, HE-500, or a HE-400.
Just yesterday I read a review that compares the LFF Paradox (a modded fostex t50rp) favorably to to audeze LCD3. I cant help but think he might be exaggerating just a little. However, that's good company to be in. Other mod include MrSpeakers MadDogs and Smeggy's Thunder pants (custom wood cups)

Yep, definitely. The grados are much more balanced and more natural sounding than the M50, making them better for genres such as classical, rock, jazz, etc. The M50 imo are only good for bassy genres, especially hip hop. They sound odd for anything else.

That's actually not a terrible decision! The 8323s are actually awesome headphones for the money.

Well, what I would do is stay with the 8323s until you get something you REALLY like.

What's the best place to try on headphones in person?

At your local audio store.

I need some recommendations on headphones in the <$70 range I listen mainly to Rock, metal, classical, and instrumental music. I might use them for a little bit of audio mixing or gaming so maybe a decent soundstage would be nice. I like a good flat response. I really liked my JVC flats because of that kind of sound. Portability might factor into this since I'll probably be wearing them everyday. I have been looking at JVC HARX700, Monoprice 8323, Beyerdynamic DT235, and the Koss Pro DJ 100.

Hello Head-fi. I'm looking to buy some new headphones, but I'm not sure what some good options are. I'm looking to spend under 100. I listen to indie and alternative rock, so I like to hear acoustic and vocals, but I still like bass. So basically, I don't want an overpowering bass. I would like some that are somewhat stylish, though honestly I'll take sound quality over style any day.

 

Thanks,

Nothing like a Head-Fi meet like the one we had in Austin yesterday.  It's a day at the candy store.

Up your budget $10 and get the CAL!, which does not need an amp.  The Koss very likely will, depending on exactly what you have that is driving it and what volume you want to achieve.

Good cans but at $30 or more over budget.
