This would seem to fly in the face of usual recommendations for the 702 to have beefier amplification.

Beats look good but they need batteries constantly. Are you prepared to always bring along spare ones in case the batteries run flat?

Sony XB700 is def cheaper and just as bassy. Even better go for the XB1000.

What problems? Can you link me the reviews? The pair I got for my friend is working perfectly for the last 5 months. And he takes trains & buses to school almost everyday.

That pair is the DT770pro, not the standard DT770. Regardless, they should still be good. In the link, some reviews were actually good. Can't believe the first review actually recommended Beats over the Beyer lol.

If you need more persuasion, then see this http://www.headphile.com/page8.html Larry actually modified those into very nice headphones. I doubt he would choose a problematic headphones to modify in the first place.

Anyhow, enough advice from me, you gotta make your decision on your own and hopefully soon since your JVC is broken. Good luck.

 Yep, I've got a pair, heaps of people on Head-Fi have them!

 

 They're fairly nice, no real weak points to dislike but they're not a stunning can either ~ depends on what price you could get them for.

 

 They're ok for a closed $200 can, but I think the Ultrasone 580 is the better can for the same money.

Just get a pair of Sony XB700's as mentioned above. i will take it you are a pretty big basshead then...audiophile headphones generally will never give u the basy ness of the beats

Another vote for the XB700's if you like Beats.

yep get the XB700's and the ZO2. and your set....hmm ..it doesn't really make too much sense for an amp to be more than the can(at this price range) so...the E6? paired with an FiiO L9 LOD?

$100 total :)

Maybe split your budget between a ~$100 IEM for portable and a used ~$200 full size open for home.

Beyerdynamic DT series do not sound their best without a decent headphone amplifier.

Beyerdynamic DT that are 32-Ohm and will work with out a headphone ampliifer, but have the least bass of the DT series.

The DT770 Pro 80-Ohm will work decently and sound less then great, without a headphone amplifier.

So i need help deciding on preferably over ear headphones that are comfortable, All around pretty good, some sort of noise cancelling as i ride subways and buses everyday (whether it be passive or active), not really leaky, good balancing of bass/treble, DURABLE and overall, CRISP SOUND QUALITY. I am very open minded as to whether they are heavy, ugly, or anything like that. I seek your guidance, masters. 

[edit] I have a $300 or less price range

[edit] my current headphones are $30 JVC on ear headphones.

P.S BEATS SUCK!


The new Audio Technica ATH-A900Xs are $300.

The new ATH-A700X should be cheaper.
