    Im looking to get a pair of cans for listening to music at work, and various other things. There have been a lot of times in the last week or so that I wish I had some decent ones.

    I have been looking at Sennheiser HD429s. they are like $50 on amazon. What others can you recommend for the price range. Please don't recommend Bose or Beats, as I think there are a lot better options.

    The Sony V6 is pretty good. The AD700 might not be as good of a choice since it's open and OP wants to use it at work.

    Some other recommendations:
    Sony MDR-XB500
    Audio Technica ATH-M30 (the popular M50 model maybe within your budget if you can find a deal; it comes in straight cable and coiled cable versions)
    Creative Aurvana Live!

    Those Sony's seem nuts! 4hz lowest they go? jesus, that's lower then most subs for cars. I almost question the specs at this point. :twitch:

    How so? I don't see any pointed spikes that stick into your head.

    The Sony V6 cans at $70 is your very best bet. For that kinda money they are very very hard to beat.

    One more vote for Sony MDR-V6, they are the standard for a lot of recording studios for over 2 decades for a reason.
