I'm looking for a Christmas gift for my brother. He wants a new set of over the ear headphones for use on his computer. That means gaming & music. His two important factors - of course other than sound quality - are durability (VERY important), and noise isolation.
A few hours of research have brought me to the Sony MDR V6 / 7506. These seems pretty solid, but also seem quite pricey here in Canada compared to what I've read people having bought them for. Here they cost roughly $130 (from reputable, non-ebay sources to avoid getting a fake), and are pretty hard to find. People seem to be raving about these headphones based on them costing $70 or $80.
So, are they still the best option in the "around $100" price range at $130? Or are there better headphones for the money these days? As i mentioned, durability is the most important feature, followed by noise isolation.
