Well... I think the title says it all. I've been an owner of Sony MDR-V6 phones for almost a year now, and I absolutely love them - except after about 1 or 2 hours of using them my ears start to feel pretty hot. I know that is quite a while, but I still have to use them sometimes for a while with music when performing or recording, etc.
This brings me to question on a similar price of $150 or less, are there any other headphones you are aware of that have a better sound and more comfortable muffs? I plan on using them for quite awhile in the future, so I'd want them to be well-built and have a pretty neutral recreation of the original intended music - no boosted bass or exaggerated highs.
I'm not looking for a detailed break down of why, but moreso what your experience has been as a comparison between the MDR-V6 and something else... like if the MDRV6 is a 10, how does the Audio Technica M50X compare, etc. I'm not really in the mood to splurge on super-expensive headphones... because well... they're going to be worn and will eventually wear out. So... a $1500+ pair of phones is right out of the picture.
Thanks for any input provided!
