Quality Headphones

Recommended Posts

Looking for new quality headphones, looking to spend $100 or under if possible. The major qualities I need are comfort overall, durability and great sound quality. I like the Bose Triports a lot because they are amazingly comfortable and sound great, but maybe someone has a suggestion for me about something cheaper that is just as good or near?

Grado's, Sennheisers, or Shure's should be your first choices :)

 

And if you want a good amp to go with them...http://www.decware.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=Tubes;action=display;num=1125326118

the Grado's and the Sennheisers look very nice. Any specific recommendations? Especially ones considering how the headphones fit; the aspect I like so much about the Bose Triports is how they dont simply sit on your ears as much as they surround them. I can't tell very well from the graphics if any of the headphones I'm looking at are like that.
