I'm torn between the Philips HP170 and Sennheiser HD202. I mostly need these headphones to listen to music while other people are playing music w/ semi-loud (maybe around 50dB) speakers. thanks.

I don't thinK i want to buy a refurb from ecost due to their low reseller rating.
Also is a volume adjuster on headphones recommended, or is PC volume adjust better? Thanks.
So far my choices are :
SENNHEISER HD 457
Sennheiser PX100 refurb (if refurbs are safe)
Sennheiser PX200 refurb

Anybody have refurb horror story? If not, Im about to get the 200's as soon as I get the green light

I own the HD202, and I don't like the fact about the treble isn't as good as I wanted. But, its closed, so yeah, you can hear your msuic easier. The bass is superb though for its price, but I never regretted getting it.
