I'm used to my MDR-v6, but want a new pair of (full-size) headphones that is EQUALLY clear and true-sounding

So, I've been using the same pair of MDR-v6's for many years now, and I love their sound. I can't stand using other headphones that don't have as much clarity, or focus too much on lower frequencies, or both. I use my headphones with my Macbook and iPhone. I don't like for my sound to be equalized or "colored" in any way. I like for it to be precisely what the device is putting out. Honest, and flat.

 

My budget is probably a max of $120, but if you are totally sure that there is something that is perfect, but it's more expensive, feel free to mention it.

 

Basically, I'm just really, really used to the way these headphones sound.

 

…and it doesn't hurt if they look cool, too, but sound comes first. :)

The KRK KNS 8400 can be had if you add about $15 to $20 to your budget.  The Sony MDR 7510 is also an option.

 

The very much over your budget Sony MDR 7520 seems ideal for you--except for price.

Thank you very much for responding. After doing some research, I think I'm going to get the MDR 7520s. I (almost literally) wear my headphones all day, every day, so it's silly not to spend extra on them.

 

They should sound fine when powered by my iPhone, right?

I like the $25 JVC HAS400. Imo it sounds better than the Sony V6 and has more detail. I have owned a Sony V6 for over 25 years. I just gave away my 25 year old Sony V6. It was still working fine. I still have one V6 left. The best thing about the Sony V6 is its durability.

Yes--they do well from my iPhone 4.  I use a very affordable Monoprice 1/8" male to male short cable for portable use.

Do you use that cable because they don't come with a cable, or just because you wanted a shorter one?

Because its shorter--and of course because the cable of 7520 is detachable.
