Beyerdynamic DT770-80 ohm. They can be found here in the FS forums for near your max price.

Audio Technica M50S (make sure grab straight cable one, which is M50'S'.  M50 without 'S' has a coiled cable). You can grab one about 110 from Amazon.

Ok thanks, other option that are good? How about sennheiser 598 or akg k240mkii?

I don't know about the K240 but I can tell you the bass in the 598 probably won't be able to satisfy someone who listens to Dubstep and Hip Hop.

Both Sennheiser HD598 and K240mkii are open-aire headphones, which will leak sound to outside and from outside. K240mkii is actually semi-open, which does leak less, but still leaking the sound regardless.

 

But if you do not mind this problem, HD598 is just massively better than any of these closed cans. It's no contest. Making good closed cans are far harder than making open cans in general.

Ok thanks a lot :). But why straight cable and not coiled cable? Differences ?

post #8 of 27

Coiled is just so annoying, and most people don't like them. There isn't any difference sound quality wise.

The price is 50$ more. Worth it?

In my opinion, yes. But it really depends on your wallet. The DT770 is WAY more comfortable, and has better sound. 

 

I am going to add that I had to use an amp with my DT770 80 ohm, I used a fiio E6. The M50 won't need an amp to drive them. There is a 32 OHM version of the DT770. I saw one in the FS forums a couple days ago, those wouldn't require an amp.

Below is a link to a used 'like new' pair of 32 ohms in the FS forums. You could try to talk him down from the $180 price if that's too high.
