I realize you get what you pay for, but unfortunately, I just lack money in every conceivable way.
My main (and only) headphones right now is a pair of the Sony MDRZX100's. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MDRZX100-BLK-Series-Headphones/dp/B004WODP20/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1353641064&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=Sony+mdr+zx100
I like them well enough, but they can get a bit uncomfortable after a while. As a musician and avid listener, I feel it's time to upgrade. Of course, my idea of "upgrading" is your "entry level" in all likelihood. These Sony's cost about $15, and so I figured somewhere around $40-60 is about the absolute highest I can go. I figure I spend so much time listening to, recording, and enjoying music that I should spend a bit more on it and really experience it in a more powerful sense.
I'm looking for something dynamic that is good for listening while recording, listening to music (just about every genre), and comfortable.
I was looking at the Audio-Technica ATH-M30's, as they seemed like a good starting point, and I can't say enough good things about my AT turntable.
Of course, any advice and suggestion is welcome. Please feel free to laugh and joke at my expense.
