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.

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.
