I already have vmoda m100 for electronic and rap music. I also have some ath m50s coming in soon. However, I need some good cans for post hardcore and other rock music. I'm willing to pay up to 200$. I've had the Sr 225 and Sr 80s recommended for these genres but am ñeleaning towards the sr80s because people say the extra 100$ is just not worth it.

What other headphones 200$ in your opinion would be Much better than the sr80s? Also would these be good for watching movies and shows? If not, what would you recommend for that?

Btw I listen to music on my Rocoo P<3

Buy L-Cush pads. Seriously. It's the easiest way to get the most out of your SR80i. The SR80i with L-Cush is an aggressive experience befitting aggressive music.

I think simply switching from SR80i's stock pads to the L-Cush pads improves sound by a good 20%. However, my 20% might be your 5%...or your 50%. But for $20, I think it's a must-buy for the lower Grado models.

to be honest headphones are great for private listening to improve your listening experience get some quality speakers and have the best of both worlds as a choice.
