I've liked the Sannheisers I've messed around with where I work. My favorite headphones that I've heard are Plantronics studio headphones...can't remember the model though (Sorry!).

Beats, Monster DNA, Sol Republic and all of those headphones are good. Not necessarily for the money, but for the genre they're designed for...hip hop and rap. They're bass and treble heavy. They're great for the average joe who wants bump but if you want sound authenticity they're garbage.

Damn man, went into Bestbuy, listened to every headphone there, and NOTHING even came close to how transparent and honest the sound in the 201s were, like all the Beats, Beats pro, Beats studio, BOSE $200 wooden phones, SONYs with those fluffy red earpads, even the sub 300 DJ headphones... but the 201s had no bass or soundstage so I returned them for a pair of 419s

I suppose you can't have everything for 20 bucks

*Cough, I work at BB*

I've not been impressed with anything bose makes other than the suspension system they sold to GM several years ago.

Most of your classic rock and blues isn't going to have strong bass. That is something that has been "enhanced and boosted" throughout the years. For pure audio enjoyment a true studio headphone will work well, but most of us after being exposed to "enhanced" music tend to enjoy headphones that add some color to the sound.

At Best Buy 44 hours a week hahah.

I've actually just posted a couple things, a new thread about DAWs, AIs, Garageband and some other stuff.

Trying to get back into recording stuff so I needed some help from UG.

I have the K240's and they're great for more surgical listening, but I wouldn't use them to mix on. They make monitors for that.

I also don't use them for tracking. They're not loud enough for a lot of things, and I don't want to abuse them by cranking my headphone amp. Also, they're semi-open-ear design, so they bleed into the mic for a lot of quieter things.

For tracking, I have a few pairs I pick up from time to time at the surplus store - Samson and stuff... usually about $5-$10. Cheap, sound mostly kinda crappy, but loud enough for pretty well any application and closed-back design. And cheap enough that if they break, you just get more.
