Comfortable headphones in the 100-200$ range

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,
I am currently sitting on a pair of pretty crappy urban ears headphones. My biggest problem with them is the fact that they get super uncomfortable after 2-3 hours. Do you have any suggestions on an upgrade for me? I use them mostly for MP3s, not flac, no home theatre etc, so I don't need any top of the line.

I've been looking at Grado SR60i, V-moda Crossfade LP, Beats Solo etc.

I'd really like an over-ear choice, would be super grateful if you experts could help me out a tiny bit.

Thanks a lot in advance!

DT990 Pros are a great pair of headphones in that price range.

Agreed DT 990 Pros are brilliant for that money.

Thanks to the both of you! Will check them out.

What are you thoughts about the Grado Sr60/80?

I've only heard one pair of Grados (SR325IS) and to my ears, they were bright and sibiliant with a lack of bass presence.  To give you a reference, my ears are attuned to the HD650.  That means I enjoy a darker, smooth sounding headphone with a strong emphasis on mids and deep, somewhat impactful bass.

 

Hope this helps!

The Sennheiser hd598 is incredibly comfy and in your budget.

 

gL!!
