Today I had my my usual USB headphones [Microsoft Lifechat LX-3000] die on me, usual crackling, buggered copper cable etc.
So i'm having a look around for some headphones I can pick up locally, but I don't want to make this decision without someone of experience giving their opnion.
These are all around the $40 range. It should be noted that I listen to mostly dance and rock stuff [Think DJ Fresh and Queens of the Stone Age], so I do like my bass response, but I don't want to have a completely muffled mid-high range either. I seem to pick up on high range the most, around 7500-10 000hz, but I do want some rumbling bass to go with it.
Here are the best $40-ish looking ones I've found, can anyone give their opinions?
Sennheiser HD201 ($37)
Sony MDRMA100 ($34, some kind of sale price)
"PIONEER Dynamic Over-Ear Headphones SEMJ721R" ($40)
Sony MDRXB200L ($40)
Sony MDRXB200D ($40) [Not sure if its the same headphone with a different style to the last]
"Yellowstone Retro over-ear Headphone" YSRHP1BK ($30) [Probably cheap because they are awful?]
Any help would be greatly appreciated, take note these also need to be durable as well, particular in the cable [in this case it lasted 1.5 years, maybe 2] I don't want these going like the last one did.
