And my budget is <$200. I have what I've looked at in the poll, and if you have any other suggestions, or any experience with either, then please post.

I have a suggestion! Buy MY AKG K 242 HD's! I've been trying to sell em for so long to get a pair of close-ear headphones. PM me with an offer! Lol.

They're a VERY nice pair. Sound is very clear. The bass is plentiful. Not to crazy, but just perfect. They are open-ear, so understand that you'll be hearing people talk around you, but because of this, this setup allows the headphones to give you top-quality sound!

Depends. How used are they, and how low would you be willing to go? I am very strongly against buying used stuff, especially if it's been on someone's head for however long.

It does not. I currently have some [flame suit blocks this brand] headphones, but I want some actually good headphones.

I take very close care of my belongings. Being PC equipment, Game consoles, etc. I also still have the original package sitting on top of my shelf w/ all the accessories inside it. I can send you pictures if your interested. You won't notice a scratch or ANYTHING on it. How's $140 sound?

To be completely honest, I've probably wore them less than a Month. Only brought em to my Campus once, and only really wore em when I would watch a movie on my PC. Think i've had the Headphones for about......5-6 Months.

How much use have you put into it?
I think $140 is a tad high since I can get them new for $178.

Hmm. I'd say they're still in their break-in period. But not 100% certain. I've got Klipsch speakers now, so the Headphones haven't really been put to use in a while.
