I rock the little black Sony's they sound good, I get about six months of heavy duty use out of them. I've been using the iPod ones for a similar length of time.. I used to prefer Aiwa headphones exclusively..

(Lower end) studio standards Sony 7506's
 


Quote:
You'll find MDR-7506 headphones in virtually every recording studio on the planet. Why? Because these exceptionally affordable headphones give you studio-quality sound and impressive sound isolation, but they're still comfortable enough that you can wear them for even the longest tracking or mixing sessions. Their closed-back design and thick earcups keep sound from leaking out into microphones, and they also provide a consistant listening environment anywhere you use them. And unlike most folding headphones, Sony MDR-7506s can easily withstand the abuse of daily wear.

Had mine like 6 years or more. I upgraded the pads to the nicer Beyer Dynamic ones. (the vinyl stuff cracks if you sweat/DJ in them) but the phones are still great.

weirdly theyre working alright now after I got fed up and twisted the cord around at the jack end. Obviously thats a problem thats gonna rear its head again sooner rather than later so im not expecting miracles. The reviews i saw said they were equally good for wearing on the go as listening at home, but that turned out to not be true at all.

Shure made those huge silver DJ ones that were alright to compete with the Sony v700 (silver DJ), but I haven't heard much about the others.. If your okay at soldering you might be able to fix a connection issue... But lots of those folding cups etc.. do eventually break... esp the V700 Sony's. I've hardly ever seen a broken V7506/V6... The hinges are sturdy metal.

I rarely wear the big cups out on the town tho. I feel like Ali G in that Madonna video! Haha. Probably get mugged! If I have the cash, I just shell out for a nice in ear Sony... or rock the phones at home.

I was thinking of getting the big silver ones but they were a bit ostentatious and they were 25 more, the black Shure ones are large but they dont really look silly.

yeah, i reckon i made a miscalculation in buying them really, the sound is pretty superb in fairness its just that they aint practical. Thats the trouble with buying online, headphones are the kind of thing you really want to try out for a day before you get em. When youve got your mp3 in your pocket you need a jack that has a bit of give so the wiring isnt being stressed.

Yeah... As much as I love "cans", in public they attract attention, and are generally less practical. I finally just opted for the less visible in ear types. Bose makes some good ones I have heard that fit your ear well.

My dad recently gave me a pair of Dre Studio Beats and they are very nice. My last pair of Sony headphones were close to thirty years old. I only use the Studio Beats when making mixtapes, so I look for them to last me a looong time.

Grado SR-80s are affordable, comfortable, reliable, excellent-sounding and vented. Recommended.

I wish I could rep you 1,000 times over! I am huge fan of the Grado phones. I've owned the 60s, they're wonderful. I currently have the 80s AND the 120s. Cannot, I repeat, CANNOT go wrong with Grado Labs cans.

Unless you treat them with disrespect--as I do, as I tend to do with all material objects--and the foam bits fall off and get lost somehow. Then they are very painful.

And just yesterday, I accidentally stepped on a fine Sony pair and snapped the earpiece off. The glue is drying as I type.

As I learned yesterday when the right ear on my able-planet headphones suddenly stopped working, even fairly nice/expensive headphones can break for no apparent reason.

I treat my Grados like they're precious little babies. For a while I was even putting them gently back inside thier boxes after each time I'd use them. Got to be a hassle though.

Your point? I mean, besides pushing my buttons? What does my being 57 have to do with how I treat my cans?

I personally think that, like many people whom I consider complete idiots, you are really young. Too bad for you. I wouldn't want to go through the shit of being that young again for anything in the world!
