    So at some point last week my Zumreed Dream headphones just stopped workingin the left ear. They'd had some static off and on for about a day before they just stopped working altogether. Now, when I got these last spring, I wasreally impressed with the sound as well as the comfort-level (not clamping on my ears too much). However, not that they've kicked the bucket on me, Ireally can't say the same for the durability. I may not have been 100% gentle with these headphones but I didn't beat them up either. I would just goand buy another pair of the exact same kind, but I don't want to waste the money if this is a trend in the line, rather than just an unlucky occurance ofgetting a bad pair. So what I'm asking for is a little advice from whoever knows a bit about headphones. I'd prefer something in the same price rangethat I purchased the Zumreeds for (~$75), but I'm willing to spend a bit more if I know that a new pair will LAST. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    for around $75, you can find discounted and discontinued V series and MDR series Sony headphones on Amazon.
    i have these
    and they sound fantastic. The earcups are very comfortable ( i wear them for hours on end) and my ears dont sweat.

    I tried out the Beats by Dr. Dre a couple weeks ago at the Apple Store. By far the BEST headphones I've EVER tried... The sound was AMAZING.
    $350, though...

    Thanks so much for all of your help guys. Those Beats headphones look pretty sick but I'm not sure if I'm ready to spend $350 on headphones yet. TheAudio Technica m-50s are more in my price range, but I'll definitely research all of these. Your input is much appreciated.

    edit -- In Yo Nostril, what's wrong with them? I plan on getting to an Apple store to test them out for myself (assuming they have them there when I go),but for the time being, are they lower quality than they appear to be?

    After much review, I've decided to go with the Audio Technica m50. Hopefully I can find a store that will have them available to test before purchasing.Thanks again for all your help guys!

    Stay away from skull candy. Also if your listening to MP3's go with something cheap. If your listening to vinyl go ahead and spend some money.
