Suggestions - $100 -comfy - music+talk

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone.  I stumbled upon this forum by searching for headphones under $100.  I must first say that I'm a total beginner when it comes to headphones.  The only headphones I've ever owned are iPhone earbuds and some cheap skull candys.  I know nothing about brands really except that Bose and Beats by Dre are overprices.  I'm ready for some full size headphones.  What I'm looking for:

 

-Trying to stay around $100 

-Not too huge

-Good for listening to an ipod/iphone at work 

-mainly listen to rock, classical music and news/podcasts

-Will wear for hours a day so something comfy is needed

-Something at least somewhat stylish (least important of my requirements though)

 

Looking forward to everyones advice.  Until then, I'll keep searching through the forums.

Welcome to head-fi!

 

Sadly the ATH-ES7's are over your budget. They fit all your reqs.

Please try the Denon AH-D1100. Let me know what you think. I found them to be the best deal around $100.

Thanks!  My budget is merely my hope.  For the right headphones I'd spend more.  I'll check out the ATH-ES7's.

 

And what do you all think of the ATHESW9As?

I just found out I can get a significant discount on these through my work.  Unfortunately they only offer this pair and Beats.  I can get these for $146 but I'm not sure if they'd meet what I'm looking for.  The description sounds enticing but that's marketing for you.

I had high hopes for the ESW9s, but was not impressed. They sounded muffled to me.
