I just bought a pair of se210's today. VERY POOR sound quality until I got home and played around with the ear peice. After I found one that fit my ear, EXCELLENT sound quality. I love them.

I'd love to hear a pair of the se530's... I wonder how much better they sound than my se210's.

I also have a pair of Audio Technica's. They are by far the best headphones I've ever heard. They're about to fall apart, but they sound stunning.

Since I can't stand to have anything in my ears I use Sony MDR-7506's. I absolutely love them because they have about as flat a response as headphones can have. I can add any coloration by EQ'ing. The drivers will handle +12dB without distorting, great for some added bass when needed.

I too always look for flat responses in headphones. Good choice.

I have the MDR-7506s and I love them! (But the rubber on the cord has frayed and exposed the wiring with less than a year of use.)

OKay, I probably already posted one of my headphones here but I have some more.

Here is a pic of all my headphones.

See those Apple In-Ear ones? Picked them up ( brand new ) for a forth of the price they're worth. Those just don't fit in my ears, I want to wear them but they keep falling out and it annoyes me alot. Those In ears just arent anything for me , I have cursed ears. Anyway , the middle ones with the protectors are the ones I use and love. Those are a pare of Creatives EPwhatnot.
Now , I used to love those Apple headpones , the design and quality and everything. But they are malfunctioning ( I think ). There isnt much sound going trough the front ( where it should be coming from ). In fact , I get a louder sound from the back! Those 3 or 4 holes on the back. I just gave up on them because of that. I had to play my iPod on max volume to get some normal volume when in a room of people while the headphones in the middle of the picture can do that with a forth of the volume. ( or less ).

I also have a HEADPHONE a real PHONE but those are getting old, need to be replaced. ( got those with my webcam ).

I see some people here have UEs and Shure's. Well, those in-ear headphones just dont fit for me and i really hate that. Im sure they rock. How come , though? ugh

I was talking about headphones with the guy who sits in front of me in math class earlier this evening. That is what he has and he says they sound great.

The people that swear by Bose are sadly mistaken if they think they are listening to top-end phones. For the price you pay for a pair of triports (which are built quite poorly, actually), you could get a pair of much better sounding phones from another company.

If you truly want good audio quality for a fair price, stay away from Bose. Look at Beyers, Sennheisers, etc. Trust me, I've been through many headphones, and I will never buy Bose again. If you are interested in what to purchase, head-fi.org is a great place to start.

Myself... I use Sennheiser HD580s.

I 2nd this. I have two pairs of these. One at home for listening pleasure and one at the studio for recording classical, jazz, and other acoustic music. Flat-ish response (nothing is flat, I don't care what anyone says), great comfort, EXCELLENT definition!

Too bad they're discontinued.

I roll with Sennheiser 595s for at home and use Shure e2cs for when I'm out and about.

I'm thinking of getting Grado SR60s or Grado SR80s to use as headphones on the go, though. Any thoughts on using those on the go?

I just took delivery of 2x pairs of Sennheiser PX100 (one pair for my sister, the other for me, because I got a deal on 2x pairs) & damn am I dissappointed! Headroom describes the sound as on par with the Koss PortaPro, but they sound like absolute garbage compared to my PortaPro!

Safe to say that I am sticking with my PortaPro for portable listening.

So here's a question for you (or anyone else rolling with some PortaPros): I'm about to take delivery of some Ultimate Ear Super.fi 5 Pros, but am looking for some cans that would be better suited for a home setup. I realize that the Koss is supposed to be a portable phone, but if I could get a set of them (new) for a whopping cost of $0, would it be a good "buy" for a home setup? If not, is there anything else in that price range (or up to, say, 50% more expensive) available on Amazon.com that would be better? If not, I'll probably end up with some Grados or something, but I would have to pay for those.

I made these on my own out of MDR-EX90 earbuds, and they look ugly - but are the most comfortable and BEST sounding earbuds I've heard to date. (and I've tried UE, Shure and V-Modas - even the nice ones).

Fish-tank air tubing, epoxy and gun-ear plugs. Total cost ~ $5.00. Made $80.00 headphones sound $300.00 +.

My mom bought me a pair of Shure SCL3s for Christmas. They fit very comfortably, and the noise canceling is superb. However, the bass is a bit lacking IMHO. However, I'm still entirely pleased with the set.

50% more than $0 is $0. But yes, there is a reason why the PortaPro design hasn't changed in over 20 years - they are just that freakin' good. In any design (portable, in-ear, sealed, etc.) there is nothing in the same price range as the PortaPro that can even come close.
