« on: September 28, 2011, 12:54:34 PM »
i am trying to find something that is avalue for money. i know that if i spend more than 100 dollars will get great things. but i cant
with top money at around 70 dollars, what could i get?(for use with 2 box )

i already have sennheiser hd201. not so good, not so loud not good bass, but you get what you pay. i was thinking about these here
Audio-Technica ATHM40FS

Audio Technica do good headphones! I'm not sure of the exchange rate at the moment, but in our store we have three good examples currently in stock. The M40FS are really excellent for a totally flat response!

Headphones and edrums .... huge subject really..... just one of many threads at vdrums this one running 5 years now:
http://www.vdrums.com/forum/showthread.php?22683-Once-and-for-all-headphones
These are prolly my favorite edrum headphones under $100  .... Crutchfield is out of stock for another week or so, but great price at $79:

The M40FS are really excellent for a totally flat response!

they may well be decent for the price, but saying they have a "totally flat response" is nothing more than marketing hype...
