Sennheiser eh 150's. They're a pretty good mid-range product as far as the quality to price ratio goes. They provide decent bass, they're sturdy, and comfortable. No complaints so far.

I listen to music on headphones almost always because you can hear sounds you wouldn't get to hear from a pair of speakers. I have had many pairs of headphones from Sony studio monitor style, to Aiwa ear buds, but my latest pair of Stanton DJ pro60's are easily the best sounding pair I have ever heard! Great frequency response and I love that Stanton only deals with audio, so the quality is much better.

Sorry man, that's just not true .
But I must admit an affordable Headphone can sound really good compared to affordable speakers.
But there's no way my headphone beats any of my two 'serious' sets of speakers.
(and I haven't got an affordable headphone. I mean, it cost me $1,50 at a thrift store, but that was just crazy luck ).

Nah, DJ audio isn't home audio.
Their phono cartridges are actually pretty awful (especially the Celebrated Stanton 500, brrrr!)

Used to have those and they randomly broke. Sound quality was insane but only lasted around 6 months.
Exact same thing happened to me. They were great while they lasted, just didn't last very long. I know someone else who owned a pair and they had the same experience.

These are what I use most the time. They technically aren't mine, just sort of on permanent loan to me.
