What's a good headphone in the $300-400 range?

  1. kzhlin
    Hey guys,
     
    I have a beats wireless that I got as a gift, and I really don't like it. I'm planning to sell it and get a better quality headphone. 

    Some that I am thinking about:
    - Sennheiser Momentum
    - Bose QC15
    - Beats Studio (I listened to it for a minute, and it was noisy outside, but it sounded decent. Going to borrow my friend's beats studios tonight for another listen.)
     
    Any thoughts or recommendations?
     
    Thanks!

    Vmoda headphones have a great reputation and are made to be run without amping. Decent bass too if thats what your after

    Thanks. How do those compare with the Senns? Someone also told me to check out the Sony Mdr-1r's.

    I listen to mostly classical and pop music if that helps to determine which headphones to buy.

    Dish out $100 more and you'll be in the market for some really nice IEMs

    I have a pair of the in-ear etymotics and I like them a lot.

    Might have to throw us a bone and give a bit more detail regarding sound signature preferences (bass quantity/quality, midrange, treble, soundstaging, etc), isolation, comfort, etc. Probably the reason for the lack of responses.
