Any suggestion, personal review, etc on these Sennheiser HD518 vs Grado SR80i vs Audio Technica ATH AD700 vs anything else?

Hey, guys.

I'm planning to buy a new headphones, but I'm not much of an audiophile or something, but I do enjoy listening to music (of course) for a very long period.

Mostly, of course I'll be using the headphones for listening to music (rock, pop, maybe some harder music, but I need to listen to acoustic  or any other slower music too).

I'm not a bass-head, really. More like moderate, not too kicking, but not so weak.

 

Build quality is not really important, as long as it's not easily broken.

 

Overall, sound quality and comfort is the most important things.

I have around US$200 budget, but like any other people out there, if there's a cheap but with some great SQ headphones, then I'll take it.

 

So, I need your suggestions, ideas, personal reviews, etc on those headphones or maybe you guys can give me some more alternatives.

Oh, and it's not really limited on open-back only, if there's any better closed headphones, let me know.

My suggestion would be to start small and work your way up the headphone ladder.

A used pair of Grado SR60 should put you on the right track. 

If you want to try a closed design, something like Creative Aurvana Live can also do the trick.

 

You can find them quite cheap these days and they're both a lot of headphone for the money.

I probably will work it, sir.
I'm also thinking about using the headphones for a little bit recording, that's why an open back headphones with its sound leakage can be a problem.
I will check the Creative headphones soon.
And thanks for the suggestion, Bobby.
