I had these cans several years ago and finally picked up the new Bluetooth set and they’re still as amazing as I remember. By far the best cans you can get for under $200, and arguably as good as or better than most you can get for $500 or less. Good balanced sound. Bass sounds tight and accurate. Highs are crisp and clear. Anyway, if you’re in the market for some headphones I highly recommend these:

You've tested every set under $200?
Of course not... I’ve tested several though. Just throwing these out there for those who haven’t heard of them or tried them.... definitely give them a listen. They were the best sounding IMO of the ones I compared them to.

I test headphones for companies and these things are dog shit. AudioTechnica doesnt have many headphones worth the price bracket they are in. These are just straight distortion. If you want headphones under $200, depending on sound signature and style, check out the the Beyerdynamic DT990's, Grado 80i, or AKG K712Pros for open back or the Shure SRH750DJ or VMODA Crossfades for closed back.

Sony makes great budget headphones but in this price range I'd look for a more specialized brand like Beyer, Grado and others listed.

I have a pair of Beyer and yes they bump.

Had these in non Bluetooth version and definitely was not impressed. I actually gave them away. Not saying they were garbage, they just didn’t do it for me.

Typically closed back headphones have the best bass. Open back headphones have the most neutral sound and open sound stage. Out of the ones I listed, any of the closed back have plenty of bass. I prefer the VMODA's over the others.
