Current: Sennheiser PX-100, purchased January 2008.
Reason for desired upgrade: They are failing due to the cord coming apart at the headphone jack. If this wasn't happening I'd continue to use them.
Budget: Absolute limit of $100.00 before tax. Would prefer to shop at Amazon, NewEgg, or local stores.
Preferrences: Now prefer over the ear as opposed to on ear for my next purchase. Long term reliability and ease of repair a must. So, detachable cord and ear pieces required. As for sound quality, I can rarely if ever tell the difference between FLAC and MP3. I don't cringe when using Bluetooth (and my phone doesn't even use AptX). I listen to music on one of three devices; Sansa Clip, my phone, and my PC using a Topping amp. So I'm not concerned with extreme sound quality. If you can recommend a $40 set that is "good enough," that would be fine.
I'm currently looking at the Shure SRH440 due to various threads on this board. Just wanted to see if there is a better alternative based on my needs.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and for any suggestions that you may offer.
