New Head-Fier
Oct 4, 2015
Hi all. I live far from any cities and simply cannot go to a store to try headphones, so must order online. I've done tons of online research and can't make up my mind, so please give me some recommendations - criteria are:
1) Street price under $100.
2) Efficient enough to be powered by iPhone/iPad.
3) Good soundstage.
4) Very comfy for long stretches.
5) Suitable for home use. Won't wear 'em out and about.
5) Open back is okay, as long as they won't disturb my wife in the next room.
I have tried Grado SR60e, which had some harshness in the mid-high frequencies; also tried Sony 7506, but found them uncomfortable.
Thank you in advance for your help!

Sennheiser HD558s would be great, you can normally find them for about that price.
