Hi, i know this is probably a bit lower budget than what usually is discussed here, but right now i really don't have any more money to spend without it just being extremely financially irresponsible. And my older pair of headphones is broken, so i literally do not have any headphones right now =(
The price range i've mostly been looking at is around $100, but i feel 150 is a maximum. I'm looking for something that:
-Works well with a portable device, such as an ipod.
-Good build quality. I'm really clumpsy so they shouldn't break to easily. the main problem i've had with previous hedphones is that the cord starts glitchig after a while, so a thick sturdy cord is a good thing.
-Detatchable cord is a huge plus, because of what i said above. Allthough i've noticed that suprisingly many headphones in both this and in higher price ranges doesn't feature it, so to not exclude the majority of candidates it doesn't need to have this, but as i said it's a plus.
-Good looking. Since it's something i'm gonna wear on my head in public this is actually quite important to me. I really don't like ones that look too plastic and futuristic etc, but prefer a more clean and classic look. In other words, i think most sennheisers look terrible, while most AKGs look fantastic.
-Good sound quality of course, i listen mostly to rock and that sort of music. so a rich and clear sound is more important than a thumpy bass.
The headphones i've mainily been looking at is the various AKG models in the price range, like the K540, K514 MkII, and K520 but the very few reviews i've found seems very mixed.
So, yeah, i guess that's it. Please help me, i'm lost. Thanks in advance.
