Dear Head-Fi community!
 
I'm planning to get a set of headphones, around $50, my first one i was thinking about was the Skullcandy Agent(though i read a lot of bad things about it afterwards), my second one is the Sennheiser HD228, they are similar in price in my country. Please help me, what do you recommend, wich one should i get? Can you name any other ones that i should take into consideration? I'm listening to a lot of dubstep lately, but i usually listen to rock/metal as well. I'm no audiophile by any means, i just want nice sound quality. It will be mainly my portable phones, so i dont really want a bulky big one and miles of cable.
 
Thank you in anticipation.

AKG K518 LE

will suit your needs, and they are great for the music you listen to, and are portable.

If i understand correctly LE means limited edition. So if i choose these ones should i make haste in buying them?

If you are in a place where you can audition them first - it would be wise....when it comes to phones, It is always better to hear them yourself first before spending the DOSH

Good thing you're enjoying them.
I have yet to see someone go from a designer headphones (Skullcandy, Wesc) to K518's and regret it.
Hoping I'll be as happy as you are since I'm coming from Wesc headphones.
 
My K518DJ's arrived at home today, but I'm at work. I want to try them out NOW!
