All they're experimenting with is marketing to morons.

That's all marketing nowadays. They assume that we're dumber than a box of rocks.

If you want a good pair of headphones at a great price go register with Massdrop they regularly have great deals on some of the most sought after headphones they often work with the manufacturers to get special Massdrop editions of the most popular models

Shootouts help.

I had luck with akg 701 but couldn't justify the improvement compared to $100 sennheiser hd555.

Eventually i ended with hd595's used but I'm not a headphone guy.

You can always search the swapmeet here for used headphones.

I found as headphone reviews got better and better that the headphones now become higher than 60ohm impedance, needing a headphone amplifier.

I had much luck with headphones driven straight off a cheap cd player, like a one we connect to our receivers.
Much listening fun for $30 from a pawn shop.

Their headphones aren't as bad as their so-called "hi-fi" products, but you'll be better off with pretty much any respectable brand like Sennheiser, Grado or AKG.

If you want something customizable, take a look at the Fostex T50RP. These are a modder's delight. Their retail price is a very affordable $150 and they have huge potential. So much so that some companies offer pre-modified versions. Have a look here: A DIYers Delight: The Fostex T50RP Mk3 | InnerFidelity

Alternatively, the Fostex Massdrop TH-X00 are excellent value for money. Also have a look at the various HiFiMan headphones. Their planar magnetic tech is really something.
Thank you BuckarooBanzai for your reply. Would you please suggest me the Best Wireless Earbuds under $70.

But on a serious note, there is such a large market for guys like me who enjoy listening to music anywhere and everywhere. Because there's a time and place for every song that's ever been made. But the only problem is some headphones are gimmicks that are over priced and others are underpriced but lack everything.

So I just made this thread to ask you guys for your opinion on what I should personally get. I've had experience with Bose and Skull Candy. I'd prefer responses or links to highly customizable headphones that have excellent quality (Because I want my headphones to match my One Plus One) but all suggestions are welcome.

The only problem I see with Bose is that its an extra $50 for one button that has a mic on it but the quality is amazing.

The problems with skull candy is that its way more affordable but lacks overall quality.

EDIT: Normal Pricing Please. Nothing over $450 because that's just ridiculous and I'd personally never take it outside.
Thank you for your suggestion.
Please suggest me a good headphone.

Edit: I just realized my response below the line here is completely off topic. I thought that this thread was someone looking for headphones to monitor/produce with. Mods, feel free to delete this reply if it's too off topic but I'll leave it here for anyone who's interested.

When talking about sujective tastes in audio, it's really hard to judge what to suggest; please give us some background on your musical tastes and how you'll be driving them. And also if you see yourself buying a portable DAC/AMP (some of the things I love the most can't really be driven by my One Plus 5, so I need to keep my DAC/AMP with me).
