    The Alessandro MS-1, 2009. Better than the Grado SR-80i's and only 110, directly from Alessandro.

    This is the old MS-1 but they look similar.

    Are you actually looking for quality, or an accessory to have? Seems like you care more about the looks than the actual sound. Those 2 threads up there have aTON of info if you're looking for quality.

    - The headphones you were considering cost $60. These Sennheiser HD-212 can be had for the same price and sound at least 10xbetter [​IMG]

    [​IMG]





    - If you want to spend Beats-by-Dr.-Dre money.......you can get these for less than $200 and they are better than the Beats[​IMG].......Sennheiser HD 595[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    ^He wont be getting the most out of those 595's unamped though. Thats why I tried to recommend MS-1's or SR-80i's since Grados are great evenunamped.

    Man people just buy hype huh? Care more about looks than functionality. Buy some Sennheisers for half the price and 10x the quality. Shures rip the beats apartif you are willing to drop dough like that anyway. Though at the same time, I highly doubt that the quality of your music is that high anyway. MP3s are socompressed that you can't tell that much of a difference between a $500 pair and a $100, and anyone who says they do is lying. But yea, don't buy intohype. Think about it, it's made by Monster. Remember cheap HDMIs > Monster cables.
