I wanted to surprise my dad with a pair of quality headphones because he's been using a busted pair of Apple buds for three years. He's a huge music person, who will listen to anything from the 60s to the early 90s. You know, "Dad Rock" as they call it (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple). Anything over $200 and he'll tell me I've wasted money and feel bad taking them. He's worked very hard in providing my family with quality things that a $30 pair of Sonys won't suffice. I'm very much considering the Audio Technica ATH-M50s, as I've heard very good things about them from my colleagues.It would be great if you recommended over-ear headphones.
It would also be a bonus if they were easily attainable in Ontario, Canada.
