Hey guys. I've been a fan of IEM's for quite some time now. My first major purchase was the hi-fi man RE0s, which are still amazing for how long I've had them.
Now I am working from home and am looking for a budget pair of headphones to enjoy without needed the isolation of IEM's.
I've been looking around and have a good idea of what is available:
Sennheiser HD 202, 203, 419
Sony MDR-ZX500, DRZX701IP
Audio-tecnica M3X, M10
The problem is that I've been out of the audiophile world for so long that I don't know which to consider. I listen to a variety of music from rock to oldies to classical to rap. What I'm looking for is something that would work well across the board for no more than $50. Now that I've got a family, I can't justify spending much more than that. I'd also like to make sure they're comfortable for long periods of time. I'm primarily looking to purchase on Amazon as I've got a birthday in February and am expecting some gift cards.
Thanks for your input and recommendations all, that's why I love this place.
