I have been doing a little research the past few days to determine which set out there is the best for under/around $100 for my needs. I want a pair that works well with my Yamaha HTR 5990 while watching TV (movies and sports mostly) and listening to some music when I have time (from the Yamaha receiver as well as computers and listening devices). I listen to all genre and generations. I need something comfortable, but durable, as I may wear them for extended periods of time while working at my desk or while traveling. I have a large head and maybe a little larger than average ears. After researching these are the ones that I have narrowed it down to. Feedback is greatly appreciated, but please KISS (keep it simple stupid :) Oh, I am not sure which to prefer when it comes to closed, open, or semi open, but I am relatively certain I want around the ear with plenty of cushion. I have very good hearing, but I am not a musician. Just enjoy music a lot as well as movies. Thank you for your time.
