Hi! Definitely someone new to buying a more expensive set of headphones. I'm looking to buy a new set of headphones and have a budget of around $100. (Yes, I know a really good pair could cost a lot more...but when I've only really used what has come with a product I have bought...this is a big step ) I listen to a lot of progressive rock...so I want to be able to hear the whole range of what is going on. For the most part, I would be using them at home...but definitely want to take them on the road. They will either be plugged into my iPod touch or home entertainment system. From what I've read, the Sennheiser 230pros are supposed to be good bang for the buck...but would love to hear any other thoughts on headphones that would meet my needs. Thanks!
