    my 3 (or 4 year old) CX-300's died today - Or at least the cable in the left ear peice has finally broke and I cant really just squeeze or bend the cables together and use a little sticky tape to prolong their suffering.

    but then again after 3 or 4 years of double kick drums, heavy metal drop tuning riffage and mindblowing jizz worthy guitar solos its fair to say that they deserve to be retired.

    Are there any worthy headphones for around the same price that offer roughly the same sound or slightly better??

    I dont want to go too overboard with the budget so lets say I have around $50 or less.


    what would be a worthy replacement?

    Wouldnt the CX200's be a downgrade to my 300's? I did originally consider the CX300 II's but they have had mixed reviews on amazon(.co.uk) to the point where I just cant trust them

    Not really available in the UK and around $130 where found.

    BLEH.....

    For now i think I will give RHA M-350's a go. Reviews have been quite positive, the only major thing i cant really stand though is the standard 'Y' cable setup. I prefer it when one cable goes behind the neck
