I showed my friend my setup and now he wants to get into headphones. He is looking for a good set of clkosed cans for around $80. He wants to pair a fiio e11 with them too. I have suggested the Koss DJ100. He is also interested in the Shure srh 440 and the KRK kns 6400. Feel free to express your opinions on these headphones and others.

Best Closed Headphones for $80

A few questions,
Which headphones did your friend try? does he like a certain musical genre?
The shures and the KRK are neutral headphones.

Just checked Amazon - the TBSE are about a dollar less than the DJ100 right now. I'd say saving a dollar to get a hard-case, removable cable, and free album is worth it.
Looks like TM still has them too:

I guess the Koss headphones is the most logical way to go.
(i've seen the HA-S500's a couple of times, anything similar to his big brothers? RX700/900?)
Interesting, i will do some reading.
To the Op, good luck. Keep us posted.
