how are the SR80i's? Could you describe? Thank you.
Well at around that price you have the ATH-M50 which is a serious contender, Grado SR80is, the HD598 some have mentioned already, the Beyer DT990 Pro is around that much also on amazon... Considering you seem to enjoy vocal oriented music the most, I would look primarily at the 598s and the DT990 Pro. The ATH-M50 is a good all rounder, the Grados excel for rock. Try the "review" part of the site (on the menu at the top), that'll probably be your best bet. Those are all much better choices than the 595 at that price, in my opinion.
