I don't know much about headphones and definitely not a audiophile. But my formal phones(senns and at under $100 range) failed me badly. They are either uncomfortable after a while or have bad qualities.
Then I started to look for a decent headphone about $150-$300, with exceeding comfort and durability, sound quality comes second. I was initially looking at D1100/D2000, after reading tons of review, I realized D1100 is not as comfortable as D2000/D5000, and D2000 seems to have a serious problem with a wide screw? Anyway I moved up to D5000 although it's a bit out of my budget.
Now my only concern is, will it sound not as good as it should be on laptop/Ipad watching movies?
Oh it will be really nice if you guys have any other recommendation.
