Grado Sr80i Headphones

I can't glean if you only want these for music or for music and gaming but, for no more than $100 or so these are brilliant for music and hold up just fine for gaming.
Clear, precise with extreme detail. You can listen to a track that you have heard over and over, only to discover an instrument you never knew was there with these cans.
Can't be beat for price vs performance. Real budget audiophile with out all the hype.

For the price it is difficult to go past the AD900's...


Easy to drive, sounds great, reasonable price.

+1, these are the cans I settled on, and they're fantastic. Well worth investing in a ATH-AD900.

I ended up getting KOSS Tony Bennet signature headphones, I am happy the sound is really good the only down side is there a little heavy\hard on the ears.

I just picked up a pair of Alessandro/Grado Labs MS-1 headphones, for music. They're an 'open' design so a lot of sound is leaked in and out, but that's not an issue for me and they sound fucking awesome. Comfortable to wear, too.

There's lots of suggestions here.
One question - what will you be driving the headphones from?
Looking at some of the links shows impedances all over the place. Usually, higher range/better quality phones tend to have a higher impedance, which means you need more grunt coming into the phones for volume.

For the price of the AKG's I'd personally chose the ms1's with the Fiio E10 usb dac. Works out the same but better sound imo.

I own both. The AKG sounds better, and if you look in the right places it's cheaper too.
