New set of over the ear headphones

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

Im looking to get a new set of over the ear headphones and I wanted to get some recommendations. So far, what I found appealing are the Sennheiser HD 429s, but, what I find lacking with this set is the fact that they do not fold, nor do they have a storage case (the latter being more important). So to sum it up:

 

Folding/Carrying case (preferred)

Sound Quality (yes I like bass, but the rest is important also, not looking for Beats by Dre)

Price within $200

Looking to use with phone, computer and stereo, so it needs to have a mic

Creative Aurvana Live 2 will work.

They look nice, but I understand they have a 2.5mm jack on the headphone. I prefer it to have the 3.5mm jack. Thanks!

V-Moda has replacement upgrade cables with a 2.5mm jack (works with their m100) on their website.
