I know, there are allot of threads about $100 headphones. I've been searching and reading allot and haven't found the right solution for me... I'm looking for an over the ear (must have for long periods of use) cans. I mostly listen to light rock, rock usually 320Kbps MP3 or flacs, also the evening movie and such. the source is mostly a laptop (MBP) and a pro audio mixer with a built in sound card at 48Khz at 16bit (A&H ZED, 1/4 and 1/8 needed). My budget is around $100 but it's not a brick wall limit. I currently own Sennheiser 280 pro but they are in a very bad shape cosmetically that's why I need a new set that's more ruggedly built.
The on ear cans such as the Grados or Alessandros are not good for me, I need them to not touch my ears as much as possible.
I prefer open headphones so I can listen at low volume and still hear my baby crying from the other room.
One more thing is that I don't mind buying used headphones as long as they are in a very good to like new condition.
What I have looked at so far:
I saw on amazon.com 558HD for $92 shipped in Like new condition but I wouldn't want such brittle headphones again.
Also Beyerdynamic DT-990-Pro-250 for $150 shipped in like new condition only if it is a significant sonic improvement.
What kind of ohm figure do I need to buy (32, 250, 600)?
I'm open to any type or manufacturer that would answer my needs.
Thank you all for reading :)
