Sorry, I forgot to mention it when I said Sony ZX700 and ATH-AD700 have the best sound quality under $100.



Also with her being a woman(I'm assuming, OP please correct me if I'm wrong), her head is likely a bit smaller in comparison to a guys.  So, the AD700 would probably not be a good option, as users with smaller than average sized heads have reported having issues with the fit of the AD700 due its lack of user adjustment.  Though, they may still work for the OP, it's something to consider and read up on.

yup, am female, have smaller cranium than you blokes do. that's why the Superluxes didnt fit right and dug in under my ears, because they were just so huge...

I think you need to buy the T50RP and then delete your account and not come back here =)

Those that had trouble with the AD700's fit had the same exact complaint, so the AD700 are likely not a good option for ya.  I think another option for ya is AKG's K240 studio, it has faux leather earpads that are reasonably soft along with a mild clamping force.

Hmmm no. =p

 

A "happy forever" headphone, now that is a hard one... Sony MDR-V6 or Etymotic ER-4P? Over 20 years in production and still going strong.

 

But.... if I went to a deserted island with only 1 headphone... wouldn't take one of those, I don't think....... not suuuururrrree.

I just meant buy a really good headphone and be happy before you research so much your unconscious mind will keep telling you the grass is greener on the other side ;) ;)

the audiophile in me wants to own almost everything on the wikiphonia website... *tantrum*

Thanks for the warning. =)

 

Personally, I only have one high-end headphone, and if I want another one later, I will sell/trade it, that is my cyclic nature of all finances in a single product.

 

Have to get rid of my "low-end" stuff now.... Fostex T-5 and MDR-V6.
