Considering I just paid $299 for the V-moda Crossfade M-100 I am also looking for a good open headphone that is over ear but preferably under $100 ( I would Consider the Sennheiser HD558 which is $129)
Looking for a good open headphone (Cheap)
where are they at those prices? Amazon shows the SR60i around $150 and the SR80i around 99 but from 3rd party resellers
Authorized Grado dealer.
I'm not sure who that is selling those 60s for that much on Amazon, but they're ripping off anyone who buys them big time.
Closed headphones are generally more bassy then openbacked headphones and I want an open backed one more for the sound stage then bass which my M-100 fulfills
Ok I guess ill go with the HD558 then .. Been interested in them but wanted somebody to push me to pay 130 for them :)

558 is good. Can get staticy with some rock and metal though. AKG 240 will be my fav open headphone if it retains what I liked before and the muddiness goes away when using it with the low output impedance gear I have now. You could also look at Samson stuff like their 850. The 240 is often priced at around $60 on amazon. I like my SR-60 with flat pads quite a bit.
