I will soon have an H/K receiver and I would like to take advantage of it with a nice pair if headphones. I'd like to keep it under $100. All I know is the Sony's I see at BestBuy. I really want something that will sound amazingly detailed with stereo music while having an almost surround sound effect with movies.

Brian...November issue of What Hi-Fi Magazine has a headphone shoot-out, Sennheiser HD555 and Phillips HD1500 came out tops with 4 of 5 stars. The Phillips are 3.5 times the price of the Sennheiser, the Phillips would have won but the 350 British pound cost brought them down to 4 stars

You should really check out They have all manner of great headphones and reviews of them all. If they offer a pair of headphones that is bad or overpriced, they tell you. I bought my Grado SR-60s there, and I love them. Any surround effect you might get from headphones will be because of the source, though. Usually, heaphones with gimics that say they produce surround sound are just that: gimics. If I had $100 to get a pair of headphones, I would look into the Grado SR-80s or SR-125s, though Senn's will be great also. But go to It's hands down the best online shopping site for audio products.

i'd go with grado sr-80's if you don't care about bugging people next to you (they are not soundproof and are like speakers for your head, sometimes they piss people off if you're blasting techno and they're trying to sleep.)
I bought my grados through as well

I have the best headphones in the planet for you at best value
Nady-QH560 headphones have amazing detail, and deep, rich bass.
I am a Dj, remixer, and trust me, you won't get better detail for the price.
Have 40mm drivers, open air design- meaning you don't get "hot ears", universal self-adjusting headband, velvet gel-centered earpads. Professional goldplated stereo connector.

Headphones run at $80 a piece, BUT if you shop online and buy them off of , you can get TWO PAIRS for $49.99!!!!
