So I am basically looking for cans that have good sound stage and are very well built. The last few sets I've tried had problems with noise from cheap plastic design/hinges and the cord making ticking noises when moved. At this point I am now willing to sacrifice sound quality and comfort for phones that don't have a crappy generic cord and noisy plastic frames. I want no external noise from my headphone, not even the slightest creeks or ticks. I'd like something that will last for years if possible in my price range. Here a review of what I have tried so far and what problems I have encountered. Samsung SR850 - Headband started cracking and broke after a few months, plastic caps pop off with any light pressure as the screws were too small. Superlux HD668B - Basically the same as the SR850, but had a much better headband that caused no problems. Unfortunately both the SR850 and the Superlux share the same style pads that if stretched (when using sock mod) they become flimsy and fall off all the time. ATH-M50S - Sounded great but after returning two sets the problem was clear that it had poor build quality. Both sets would make a ticking noise in the left headphone whenever the cord was moved around. The hinges were also cheap and made creaking noises, I tried lubing them with oil to fix this but it was too much of a problem to keep them. SteelSeries Siberia - The headband made them ultra light but at a cost of creaking noises anytime you moved your head. As with the M50S the cord would make a light ticking noise when moved. I am considering either the CAL or the AD700 but I don't want to buy them if problems like this might exist. Any recommendations for high build quality cans? Thanks!!!!!
