    $70 Headphones

    I'm looking to buy a new pair of headphones for roughly $70. I saw some models...Sennheiser HD515, Audio-technica ATHM40FS and ATHAD700. I have no idea what I should get. My head is average sized. I'll primarily be listening to music (all genres), with occasional gaming. Thanks in advance.

    Superlux HD669

    Not sure if I should start a new thread about these headphones, but I didn't want to hijack other Superlux threads.   I just received my Superlux HD669s. First impressions: for 30 EURO headphones they are really very good. The sound is open, clear and with decent instrumental timbre and...

    Headphones for serious audio monitoring work

    When blasting loud, can others hear my music with either of these?

    I am currently using the Audio Technica ATHM40FS and looking to upgrade.  I like how the M40's sound, I feel the bass is pretty good I feel.  My only issue with the M40FS is that others can hear my music when I turn up the volume.  I'm considering sennheiser 555, 595,  or Audio technica ATH-M50...
