alright.. help me out.. I'm researching music equipment. Headphones. I want a pair of good ones. It's not urgent because I'm willing to take the research time to find Juuuuuuuust the right ones.
I fully expect them to be expensive, so that's no big deal either.
I'd rather have quality than just another "for right now" set because I'm tired of feeling like I'm only really getting parts of the music.

So ... I was looking at some Koss Pro-4AA headphones... I dunno if I like them, the reviews say they're heavy, but they've got the full ear coverage and the full pad, which I prefer for sound blocking and it's usually more comfortable.
I'd like some that aren't disgustingly heavy, but at the same time, I'd prefer something that isn't plastic crap.

I'm looking for actual really high quality, studio grade headphones. If you have any ideas, reccomendations, what have you, I'd be more than happy to hear them.

First of all.. SENNHEISER.
HEISER.
not Hauser.
HEISER.

(hehehe)

And looking at the specs on both the studio monitor sets (the one I picked and the one from sennheiser), the differences are very very little. The Sony has a better frequency response (5Hz-30KHz compared to Sennheiser's 8Hz-25KHz), Sony also has a much much lower impedience (24 ohms to Sennheiser's 64 ohms), The Seinnheiser is a little more sensitive (118 dB/mW instead of Sony's 107 dB/mW.
But other than that, they're both run with dynamic transducers, have similar ear pads and I don't really care about the cord sooooo yeah.

And there is another set of phones that's one up from the ones I picked on the Sony side that blows all the Sennheiser's out of the water. The ones I'm comparing to the Sennheisers (MSRP $199.95) are MSRP $149.99.

Very comparable quality, $50 less.
