It's not definite im just looking to treat myself you know.

And probably just hardcore audio at home possibly a bit of mixing although mostly listening to a mix of house, fidget and techno type music.

Just understand that the difference isn't huge compared to the much cheaper d2000. The higher the prices you go up to in audio, the more you have to pay per improvement, on an exponential scale.

Considering for the price you could grab a pair of D2000's and get a nice DAC and/or add an amp to your setup, jumping straight for the d7000 may not give you the best sound for your money.

That being said, I own both the d2000 and d7000 and don't regret jumping on them when I saw them on sale. Just think of if that's how you want to spend your money first.

What are the best lightweight headphones for around $50?

Walkin around with these RX700s is getting really annoying...it's not exaclty the most comfortable piece of neckwear..

Are these any good? or is there something for $100 that I should just save up for?
Just looking for something a little better than the JV HA RX700 but lighter...much lighter..but I wouldn't like to lose any bass.

I'd suggest you look for some portable headphones (ones that are designed to be portable) or some IEM's. Its just too convenient to be able to stuff my IEM's in my backpack for the whole semester and not even notice a difference in size or weight. I don't use them every day so it's not worth carrying around bigger headphones (even though the m50's are somewhat portable).

I couldn't tell you what the best portable headphones are, but I think the AT ES7 are popular and they go for about 50 used IIRC. Also creative aurvana live.

Damn, I really don't like IEMs; they make me feel nauseous when used for too long. Plus I don't even notice the difference, I could probably get by with skull candy if I was going for noise canceling earbuds.

Throw me into this club.
I think I am the first one here with the Sennheiser PC 360.
http://www.sennheiser.com/sennheiser...-gaming_504122
I am coming
from the Medusa 5.1 headset. Now I understand, a good pair of stereo headphones/headsets has a much better sound stage then the 5.1 style.
Plus it sounds better with everything else, music movies, etc.

Now I want to save up for the Sennheiser HD 650.

you will need a decent source / soundcard and amplification for it.
