High-quality portable headphones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a comfortable, lightweight, high-quality and very durable pair of portable headphones that don't require an amp, that I can wear in the car or on an airplane without disturbing those around me.  I've worn Sony MDR-V150 headphones for as long as I can remember, but they sound flat with no bass and the pads are of very low quality.  I'd like to step up from those to a pair that comes as close as possible to replicating the sound of a 2.1 speaker system, with excellent base and treble.  I found one online that seems particularly good, the Beyerdynamic DTX 501P, but I wonder if I can do even better.  Thank you.

Whats your budget? and what type of music do you listen to?

I listen almost exclusively to rock music.  I would like to keep my budget within $400.  I am especially interested in getting a very sturdy pair of headphones whose external and internal components will last a very long time, with good vocals and base response.

In my own experiences, the Sony MDR-1R are great for rock music. They have a great soundstage and the low frequencies doesnt muddle out the mids and the highs unlike other headphones do.
