    Ok im not rich, so i've decided upon a few headphones for around 100$

    1- Sennheiser hd 515 (Great comfort, nice look, but i hear not very good sound and the foam earpads can get caught and torn, also long cord with a 1/4 input, although there is a 3.5 adaptor)

    2- Shure srh 440 (great clasic design and amazing reviews, Detachable cord!!!! 2 thumbs up for that)

    Are there anymore you guys can recommend to me? Im not very confident with the sennheiser 515 but i think the shures are pretty flawless.

    Im not so scared of the portability of these headphones, i rather have better sound. And im only going for full size headphones.

    Hm, Amazon had them for about $90 at one point, and about the $180 pricetag, are you sure that's not the HD595?
