you could add ath-m50, they have nice isolation so would work well in the circumstances

More like over-reviewed. Especially by people coming from other $50-100 budget headphones and being overly vocal about how amazing they are.

 

 

I'll nominate the D600 and Pro900. Should be interesting.

only over rated if people say it competes with headphones at about double the price.. at it's price range (it's only $100) i think it's still a very good contender

true but using them on the train with an iphone means the sonic improvements will be marginal because of the source and added outside noise.. so i was just saying that they work ok considering the price and circumstances

 

Anyway I don't know what you prefer but since it's 5+ headphones it may be a good idea to put 100 dollars into getting a baseline with a lower overall quality can - and can just sell them afterwards :)

The UE6000 which can be had for $85 [not sure if the sale is still on] is a upgraded version of the ATH-M50 in terms of SQ and features but definitely not in build quality

I think we're agreeing because I'm not set on any particular headphone - I just think something accepted around that price range (like the m50 or the u6000) would be good to try with the leftover money

Denon D600 would be my #1 pick for you to try
