Re: Headphones for Research Purposes
I really recommend the Audio-Technica ATH-M50. They have an excellent frequency response, especially at the price point, and good isolation and durability characteristics.
But, I would also recommend checking out head-fi.org, where there are lots of reviews, opinions, and other discussion, on headphones.
