    I've been using the same pair of HD 280 Pros since 2003 and they still work great. What I find strange is that they have not changed in price since then :lol:

    I use Pioneer HDJ-2000s to DJ(dj for 3 years)

    and I have Meelectronic m9 IEM earphones for casual/portability.

    Google Meelectronics, and visit head-fi.org

    The meelectronics out perform any sennheiser/jbl/koss/sony/etc Ive tried.

    The m6 and m9 are less than 20 dollars, the sound is amazing after about 50 hours burn-in, and just google meelectronics, they are highly regarded in the audiophile forums for price/performance.

    This is my first time posting outside the Sager/Clevo sub-forums.

    Enjoy.

    +1 4 the Koss Porta Pro's, might look like they were teleported from the 80's,(because they are)but that just shows that if the formula is right why mess with it. Awesome headphones.

    Warranty is awesome like Cutco Knives, even if you find one in the street all beat up and mangled Koss will replace it.

    Yes those Koss are pretty cool too! I owned a pair. Lifetime warranty but its sitting in my room with a broken 3.5mm jack :(

    Great sound, but its open ear, so not suitable for every occasion. They sound great and theyve been around. I like the retro look as well ^^

    But I still recommend the Meelectronics over the Koss. Its cheaper and sounds better with better isolation. My Koss had better highs but I spent lots more time burning it in with Pinknoise and other software.

    All I can say is avoid Skullcandy.

    I had a pair that broke after 3 months and they wanted me, the buyer, to ship them out of my own pocket from Ontario, Canada to Utah, US ...and wait 5 weeks for a replacement.

    Newegg was nice enough to give me a credit on my account after I explained Skullcandy's horrific support.

    Now, to headphone shop based on your recommendations as mine just died tonight and are out of warranty.

    My wife got me Sennheiser HD 280 PRO headphones for Christmas. I don't know exactly how much they cost, but I'm pretty sure they're under $100. They're FANTASTIC.
