I am looking for some high-quality headphones to get for listening. I was initially headstrong on getting the Dr. Dre Beats. They obviously sound amazing at Best Buy when they have Black Eyed Peas blasting and they also look the best. However, while reading online reviews, the structure is not very well done and they have cracked. Also, I have read that they are great headphones, but only for more hip hop/electronic music (Anything that sounds awesome with bass). Now I love bass, for that type of music. However, I listen to a wide variety of music. I listen to anything from Green Day, blink-182, Sum 41, to Jay-Z, Kanye, B.I.G., to Crystal Castles, Dubstep music, to Noah and the Whale, and other indie type bands. So with that said, I really need a pair of headphones that is very high quality in the mid-range and treble, but also has a punchy bass when I am listening to my hip hop/pop/dance style music. The headphones I have currently been looking at are Sennheiser HD 280 pro Denon D1001 Sony MDR-7506 Sennheiser PX 200-ii Sony MDR-V700DJ Now I understand most of these are DJ headphones. However, my stepdad used to own the MDR-7500DJ and he used those for listening very frequently, saying they were the clearest pair of headphones he had ever heard. Also, looking at this range, I will include that I am willing to go up to about $200-$250 spending-wise, but not much more. One of my biggest questions is whether stepping up to a pair of headphones that lie around $150 will make much of a difference to a $75 pair when the power source is an iPod. I will use the headphones mostly for listening, but also for plugging into an amp when playing guitar occasionally, and maybe computer usage as well. But like I said, the main use will be iPod. Are there any feedback that anybody can give me to help make my decision?
