These Sony’s sound like a good deal. Low impedance, as well!You can get studio quality cans for $100-$150 I personally would not compromise given how inexpensive the good stuff is. I have Sony MDR7506 (favorite), AT-M40fs in that price range and they are both great as are many of the other recommendations here. I usually keep headphones for a 5-10 years and use them everyday. Not something to cheap out on.
I have a few sets of older, quality (Pioneer, Sennheiser, etc) headphones which were replaced by others along the way.I used a pair of AT M40s until the vinyl peeled off from 1998 through 2008, comfortable, flat response headphones, IMO. The M50 are meant to be the best vfm headphone on the market IIRC
Well said. It would have been fortuitous for me to have been considering repairs to my past better gear that probably ended up in a landfill. Sony & AT headphones included. I blame my parents for not teaching me the ways of small/studio electronics. I have blown it more than once.I have a few sets of older, quality (Pioneer, Sennheiser, etc) headphones which were replaced by others along the way.
I never thought to get new pads until about a year ago, but for between $7 and $12 shipped you can find almost any suitable replacements on ebay. Still like an old shoe, sound great, and seeing use.
