Just wondering how the quality between these companies compare, and which models are recommended. Thanks.

budget?
quality in sound or material quality ?
why not include other brands ?

These are just the brands that I've been thinking of so far. I'm sure there are others, including Sennheiser, Denon, etc. I would say recommendations with a price ranging up to at most $250-300. The target range would be $60-$175, though. But I'm just kind of trying to learn about what's in the market atm. It probably won't be too soon that I'll be dropping a load on a pair.

It's too broad to compare companies. It's better to know what kind of sound signature you think you want then go after specific and comparable headphones that will gel with your system.

That is a good clarification. Asking for suggestions based upon brand is too broad of a request.

I can tell you Audio Technica sent me new earpads for free even when I Was out of warranty. Other things equal (and even a little slanted away from AT) I'd go with them again due to the good customer service I've received.

But as mentioned, there are quite a few factors to take into account besides just brand.

I have to agree with IEATFISH, my M40's weren't even three months old and they stopped working, I wrote up a quick email and they said, "no prob, we'll take care of it". Turn around time of 4 days and I got a brand new pair with a protective case. I didn't ask for it, but hey, who's gonna complain?

Here is an extensive guide to look through, It is a bit outdated though (prices listed) but still lots of good info..

It's silly comparing brands in any sort of product comparison. You cannot 'blanket' brands like that. You can only judge model vs. model, and that applies to headphones.

Well, that was not my intention. I was just looking for recommendations, as I do not have experience with high-end headphones. So I would be unsure of the soundstage that I am looking for.
