Recently my gf's Sennheiser HD212's puked out on her and I would like to get her a new pair as a small gift to her. She pretty much only listens out of her laptop and MP3 player and has no desire to use any kind of amplification, not quite as obsessed with headphone audio as I am. I do remember she really liked the 212's but after they died she went straight to walmart and bought a cheapo $10 pair which I just can't handle so I would like to find her a pair of closed headphones that are decent and don't cost anymore then $60, not a lot to spend but I'm sure theres got to be a few good pairs in that price range. They have to be closed because she doesn't like open headphones sadly. I don't really know much about headphones in this category but was looking at the Senn. HD201's, 205's and then possibly just another pair of 212 Pros. Most of these are considered fairly decent sound according to Headroom. Anyway, if there are any other headphones I should be considering or if anyone has heard any of these I would deffinately be open to some advice or any information you can provide. Thanks again!
