KSC75's are widely regarded as an enormous value for their price. Excellent headphones for the ~$20 they cost. =D

If you really like Halo.... It's not terribly hard to find Zune 30's for about $100 - they pop up all the time on Woot. That said, I love mine. The headphone out is great! But if you have an amp or are planning on buying one I would look elsewhere, there is no way to get a true line-out from the Zunes. Thats their biggest fallback.

Ok. I have Senn. HD-212Pro's. They are ok. I want something good, but below $150, preferably around $100. Are the HD555's my best bet or is something else better? I've looked around and they seem to be one of the top in that price range. Also, if this guy calls me back i will hopefully be getting an 80gig Zune for $180 . I have been needing an MP3 player all my life. I'm a music fiend.

- What are your musical tastes?
- Will you be gaming/watching movies?
- Do you need isolation, both in and out?
- Like bass a lot?

These Q's can help me give you a better recommendation.

A pretty broad range: all kinds of rock, jam bands, reggae, some hip-hop, ambient, and im always expanding into new territory.

Gaming some, but i care way more about how it sounds with music than games.

Is isolation just open headphones? I guess i want open. I like for my ears to take in all the music and not much else.

I like bass, but not an overwhelming amount. I like to it flow with the music well. I do like to be able to "feel" the bass drums and other types of bass, to a certain extent. I don't want bass to overpower the music though.

Isolation translates to closed headphones, though I have an open pair myself and I still have to take them off if my roommate wants to ask me something.

My impulse is to recommend something like Grado. I may have bias, but your genre tastes, attitude regarding gaming, and preference with bass all point to this brand. In your price range, Grado SR125 would be good. I might add that at $150 you can often find a pair of used Grado SR225's @ Head-Fi.org's Sale/Trade subforum.

Closed and Open confuses the hell out of me. It seems like they are backwards in terms of design of the headphones.

I'll look into those Grado's. They're on head-fi's buyers guide too. Thanks man.

these are considered open, see how air can get in and out of the cups?

these are considered closed, they have solid backs and the chambers are sealed

Oh well that makes sense. I'm dumb. I didn't think about it like that. Thanks for the clarification.
