Hi, I've never had a decent pair of headphones and I've been researching and trying to narrow down which pair to get. I don't want to spend any more than $150.
I want these for use around the house, so portability or noise cancellation isn't a big deal. My main concern is sound quality and detail, everything else is less important. They should also be reasonably comfortable for a few hours of use at a time.
I want them primarily for music, I listen mostly to metal with the occasional pop, punk rock, or classical album. Basically a pair that can handle many genres.
The popular choice seems to be the ATH M-50. I also have interest in the "Harmon Kardon Harkar Cl", "V-Moda M-80's", "Sennheiser HD558", and "Shure SRH440".
Going under $100 I'm looking at the Noontec Zoro and Sennheiser HD280. Do these two stack up well with the rest and is there a glaring winner in any of the ones I listed? Other recommendations are definitely welcome.
Also, I have a $50 best buy gift card and would like to find a pair that they sell there, even though their selection is very limited. This isn't necessary though.
Thanks in advance.
