hey, i am not sure if I read it right, but it seems like some of you guys found the sony mdr-1r for sub-$299. if so, i would really appreciate it if you could direct me there! :)
Two alternative headphones that I have often heard being compared to the sony mdr-1r are the v-moda crossfade m-100 ($300 on amazon, $310 from vmoda), and the slightly pricier option is sennheiser momentum ($350). I believe the general conseus is that the m-100 is more bassy than the mdr-1r, so if you are looking for more bass at the same price perhaps you should try them out. 60 day return policy direct from v-moda I believe.
