I seek advice from you folks.
First, the story:
Basically my 1 year old portable Sennheiser HD239 headphones jack broke, and it always does with all of my previous headphones/sets.
Since I use them at least 10 hours a day for whole year, so even thought I try to be as careful as possible with the jacks and headphones.
But after the whole year the mini-jack would be anyway broken. So I was thinking of moding them with a detachable cable mod type, but they are too small for that......so I will probably get a new mini-jack, and do the standard mini-jack fix.
But so I thought that this scenario would just repeat itself, therefore I seek advice:
What kind of on-ear portable (don't have to be fold-able, can be worn around the neck) headphones with a detachable cord or wirless, would you guys recommend for me.
I use them mainly outside (sometimes home, but only when my ears and I are tired), since when I'm home I preferably use my AKG K701.
I would also prefer at least the same or better quality of sound as the Sennheiser HD239 has.
I really liked the sound of them, I could hear every different instrument that was played, and the bass were good and deep?
I mainly listen to (equally) rock, pop, electronic music and dub-step. They would be mainly used on my Smartphone (Google Nexus 4), so if possible a low-impedance headphones (32 ohm, 50ohm).
Lastly the price point is up to 200$, well few more $ are also key, but please don't go overboard. Although the price point won't matter if there isn't any headphones of that type in this price range, then I can go only maximum up to around 400$. (Also available on European market).
The noise isolating doesn't really matter for me all that much, also hopefully for me these headphones will be also stylish.
Sorry for all that excessive criteria, I just couldn't find anything on Google.
Therefore I ask you Hi-Fi folks, since you guys probably would be able to find something that fits these criteria (if that headphone exists).
or if you folks advice any other method to solve my problem, for that I would be also very grateful!
Thanks for answers, and best regards from me.
P.S.: Sorry for bad grammar, English is not my native language.
