i am a die hard sennheiser user. i randomly picked up a cheap pair of eh150s before i understood the beauty of overear headphones and they were so good for their price that i swore to stick to sennheiser forever. i used them...they broke and now i got the hd201 as well. great great stuff i couldn't be happier...i know people that think these are actually better than bose overear and those things are so much more expensive.

once i have some money i plan on upgrading to a pair from their audiophile line.

Sennheiser HD650 Audiophile Open Dynamic Stereo Headphone :love:

I think that's the kind my dad uses.... he really doesn't listen to them enough... he should give them to me:D

I've actually been wanting a pair of decent headphones for a while. I have some skullcandy earbuds but nothing for good listening at home.

i use my overears even when out in public...i look like a weirdo with giant phones on my ears and i can't hear a damn thing that is going on around me...but i can't help it i need good quality anywhere i go.

I actually used to do this as well. People would get frustrated trying to get my attention, was sorta funny...so I'd have to take them off and put them around my neck so I could converse. Eventually it evolved into my just wearing them all the time, even if I wasn't listening...I'd just have them around my neck. I assumed I looked really cool, but who knows. :hphones:
I haven't done that since that pair broke and I got the Sennheisers though, I just don't wanna risk it. The Bose in-ears are really nice, and being able to hear what's going on around you has it benefits sometimes too I suppose.

I got a pair of HD 201s for €24.99 and they are incredible value for money. They give a good rich, clear sound.

I have some cheap ass JVC's from HMV, I love them.

I use the StudioBeats by Dre. I've had them for a couple of months. They aren't as great as my Bose.

After going through about 1o pairs of headphones in 2009(4 of them being iPod ones and one SkullCandy) I've finally found a pair that I've been okay with. Blue JVCs. They're amazing,and don't seem likely to break either.

A more appropriate forum although there is a similar thread around the place. I use the same Sennheisers HD 201 as Zero1986 and although a little bassy and quiet, they have a really warm sound to them that is perfect for when the missus is watching endless soaps and you want to ignore them.

scratch that...this thread inspired me to upgrade. in 2-5 business days i will be the proud owner of some hd 280 pros. i'm pretty excited.
