Any options in this category with flat response under $100?

  1. echoleaf
    I'm getting back into producing and miss my old cans (Audio Technica M40fs).  I liked them a lot - comfy, pretty flat & with a little bass.  I could get them again but I'd like something more portable (which is code for easily hidden from from young children).  I'm just not sure if there is anything worthwhile under $100 that is as comfortable as a pair of full-size phones.  I do own a cheap pair of in-ear phones, which are ok but without a great fit.
    Purpose-wise it would be for composing & listening to electronic music.  I don't want phones to make the music sound better, which would certainly be bad thing when doing a rough mix.  Suggestions?

    Sony MDR V6 are supposed to be extremely neutral and are around $80

    Googling reviews & frequency response of the MDR V6...

    Gonna have to put my vote in for the mdr-v6 as well. Very good deal at around 60$. They are comfortable (sit on your ears rather than around, durable and transportable design, and sound great. Alternatively you can try a similarly priced srh-440 at any music store like a guitar store. They will likely carry the shures.

    The sonys were way ahed in comfort for me though.

    Thanks.  There's so much more info online than there was when I bought the M40fs years back!
