you can expect to spend about 25- 600 dollars on a pair of good headphones. I have sennheisers that ran me 50 dollars and the sound quality is insane. Bass like crazy mainly because it's open-backed.

also look at grado.

bose is pure crap once you hear what's out there...for the price you can get something 10X better...bose is pretty much overpriced hyped up generic junk for the unknowing population, for the same price you can get sennheiser, and sure at bestbuy, or a little more money can go to an audio store and get yourself beyerdynamic, westone, grado etc

imo, for an all around headphone go for a sennhesier, or iem go for shure. those other brands have more specific sounds to them that suit some types of music more than others

don't buy headphones for their look, buy them for their quality

AKG's will get you FAT ASS bass

Grado's will get you incredible sound quality

Sennheiser's will get you a very good overall headphone

Shure will get you sick noise blocking and excellent sound quality



These are the 4 brands i've used so far. I gotta say the ones I loved the most were my first ''good'' one (cause i'm not listing the crappy ones I had before) which were the AKG K26P. I think they no longer exist but I really loved AKG, I'm a bass guitar player and I love big bass.

It depends what type of headphones you're looking for and whether it's for home or portable.

If it's mainly for use at home, open air dynamic headphones would be your best bet as it has a better sound stage. It's not recommended for use in loud/quiet public areas as music leaks out even at low volume and noise leaks in. Recommend: Any of the Grado or Alessandro Series, Sennheiser HD580, or the AKG K701.

If it's for portable use you may want to check out closed headphones like Audio Technica ES7 or the A500/A700, Denon D1000 or any of the IEM like Shure or Etymotic.
