The Sony MDR-V6 is one of the best sounding and most comfortable headphones I've ever used. Their professional quality sound and simple, effective design make them the headphones to beat. Plus, the price is right. I highly recommend these for casual use as well as professional. It loses some...

The MDR-V6 reigns supreme in its price range, fairly crisp bass (sometimes it can be the tiniest bit muddy). The highs are crisp and true. Very comfortable to me though they can make your ears sweat over extended periods (I recommend taking them off every hour for a minute or 2 to prevent...
