I have actually been researching quite a bit.
Currently I own a pair of $20 Sony headphones that I have used for my ipod, computer etc etc for the last 10 years. Well they frames broke.
I want to get some new headphones, but am at quite a loss really. Mostly because there are so many great brands and models within those brands.
Beats By Dre being #1 (I joke)
I just want some good sound :) I am coming from $20 headphones from 10 years ago lol. I also want over the ear.
I am willing to spend $250-$300. But that's where it gets weird. Those level of headphones seem to require a amp to get to their full potential. I don't really want to go there if I don't have to. That's a level of quality that is not required. Consider my sources.
If there are a set of heaphones in that range that will fit the bill great! But if I can get away spending less that is fine too.
Over the ear
Sound Quality top notch (as much as it can be using my sources)
$300 budget (consider the fact I do not want an amp to push them)
