i think i prefer sony pioneer and shure i also quite like akg though i had only a pair of akg iems given to me
but my sony headphones are good value for the money.
my pioneers are fantastic for 60$ i have the se m390 headphones
and my favourite is my shure srh750dj headphones. best i have heard to date. but i havnt heard much. most of my headphones are under 100$ my only expensive pair is my shure srh750dj
