Hi
 
My SR60's broke - the driver gave up, and it wasn't the hair problem.  A repair company has told me they can fit new SR60i drivers in them for £40 ($60 USD).
 
My question - should I get the repair with the new SR60i drivers, or is there a headphone on the market that you think is better value for £40 / $60?
 
My sound taste - I like open, airy sound.  I liked the SR60 and the Koss KSC35 / Portapro.  Noise leakage is not an issue.
 
Thanks

For that price, I think I'd stick with the KSC75s or Portapros..  I think I prefer my KSC75s to my Grado SR80s!

Would this $15 solution provide a better bang per buck than any $60 solution?  Any if I was happy to pay for a $60 solution, what would you then say?
 
Thanks for the response.
