I have a set of Beats pro headphones and i have never heard better, that is not to say there isn't better out there .
they are slightly heavy but i don't mind that too much,
the next model down ,studio beats i suspect would be ideal for weight and again the sound quality will be first rate.
plus you will look real cool!

have a look hear

Arent the Beats more geared towards bass heavy music? Rap, Tecno, Hiphop etc?

Although I listen to all types of music, I do not listen to those genres that much.


I'll certainly give them a look, and look into them a bit

not necessarily ,they just happen to be favoured by those types of genre loving people , largely by the Dr Dre name,
no the upshot is the quality of sound is excellent whatever the genre, and for movies etc they are great too, there is plenty of sub when needed ,
they are quite powerful headphones , i rarely have the vol over 16 on the laptop , when you do require some loud volume they feel like they are pulsing, that is what first sold them to me when i tried them on in a store to test them , then it was a case of wearing my partner down to agree on the purchase for xmas gift heh heh!
also the quality of the pro headphones build is very very good they feel indestructible and the cable screws into the headphone also making it seem more robust,
my three year old son just a couple of days ago decided to hook the phones over the door handle and pull the cable tight, i think i stopped him before any damage was done but the effort he put in before he was stopped had no effect on them, they really are quite strong

I have an ancient pair of Sennheiser HD 530 that have just about had it but are/were extremely good. I'd buy whatever replaced them but don't know what that would be - maybe noobvious knows.
Some of the cheaper Sennheisers seem bass heavy to me with poor midrange.

I would think 519/558 but Noobvious probably has a better idea.

My guess would be the HD600. The old 5-series went creeping up and the last ones were the HD580 Jubilee, which was replaced by the HD600.

I bought a pair of HD202s and gave them to my son. I really didn't like them at all but then they are cheap. I think if you are serious about music you've got to pay quite a bit more money.
Do report back what you settle on.

PS: Get a load of the prices here for HD600 in Australia!

Seems picking a good set of heaphones, especially higher end ones, is not as simple as I first though it may be. So many diffrent styles and Sound qualities, each excellent in thier own way.
Thanks for the advice everyone, much appreciated.

The only thing I know for a fact is I want over the ear thats comfortable for long periods. Think I need to try find somewhere that will let me test a few between closed/open etc from here.

Happy to try to help.....and yes, it's really not simple at all.
One popular practice is to order them from somewhere with a return policy so you can audition for a couple of weeks and then send them back.....but sometimes you end up having to pay "restocking" fees when you do that. Just a thought!
