    So my latest pair of headphones have just broken, this is the pair I use for generally trekking about and the warranty has run out. I also use some Sony MDRV150 for DJing cause they are cheap as chips, but the headband is slightly broken on them. So I am looking for a pair that I can use for generally mishing about and also for DJing. In other words I don't want a 3m cable and they need to have a 3.5mm jack.

    I have heard good things about AKG headphones as well as the HD Sennheiser series?

    Hopefully someone could tell me more.

    P.S. Somehow my rep bar has magically gone back up to green? So I am expecting neg rep to from the waffle fagdem (fagwell, mosdick + others) ;) :fag:

    Edit: don't worry it's back down to red

    i have a pair of sony MDR-XB400, not the best quality but i got them for £20, and they have a real nice bass response on them.

    but cheap and plasticcy, but they look nice, and sound OK.

    way out of his price range though.

    I've listened to the HD-205's and they are very nice considering you can pick them up for £25.

    yeah cheaper sennheisers are still a good shout, pretty sure they have a few in the £30-£60 range

    my old school had a load of the eh 150s which were decent and fairly comfy, think they may be discontinued though? id def look at sennheiser/sony though as in my experience their budget headphones are good for the money.

    ps this isnt waffle

    So far it's between the Sony MDR-ZX600 and the Sennheiser HD-205. As much as I would like a pair of HD-25s, they are just out of my budget for the forseeable future.

    do you regard yourself as a fag? If your answer is yes then so is mine.

    I see no logic behind that post. Do you feel proud of your green rep bar or something? Wake up mate it is "internet reputation", I'm sure the huneyz love your big green bar don't they ;)?

    My green rep gives my hand te tingles and then I get laid. By my hand. And bust in your general direction. Also I bought some cheap sennys once. I think tey were the 205s. Nice sounds coming from them
