    I need some new ones as my Sennheisers have gone walkies.

    Any recommendations? Just want them for general listening.

    I use Vmoda Bassfreqs when I'm at the gym. Bass response is nice for the price. I use my Pioneer HDJ 2000 any other time.

    I had the 150s, one of the headphones broke and just bought 300s.

    Cant say theres a massive difference, if anything i like the same length cables on the 150s rather than the 'round the back of the head' cable situation you get with 300s.

    ive had two pairs of sennheisers in the last 8 months.. both sounded amazing.. but broke easily...when i eventually go and buy more, it'll still be the same, even thought they break easily!
