The lights are on
I'd like to get your insight on something. I want to buy a great pair of headphones, but I'm not an audiophile. Cost isn't an factor. I'll buy whatever sounds best no matter what the cost. I've been combing forums, and brands I keep seeing come up are Grado, Sennheiser and Shure. People have also mentioned Bose, Skullcandy and Monster (Beats By Dre), but some say that those brands are simply for aesthetics. If you look at Grado Labs' Wikipedia page, they're defined as "a manufacturer of high-end dynamic open-air headphones and phonograph cartridges." Of course, the definition of high-end is "products and services that are not considered essential and are associated with affluence." On the other hand, Sennheiser and Shure manufacture high fidelity products, products that are associated with high-quality sound. After reading that, I feel as if Grado headphones are simply bought for looks. They look like good headphones, but of course that's just me talking out of my butt. Like I said, I'm not an audiophile, so I can't distinguish a good pair of headphones from a bad pair.
You may be asking, "Just what type of quality sound are you looking for?" I'm looking for concert quality sound. I'm not sure whether not such a level of quality is available in a set of headphones, because from what I hear, that type of sound quality is reserved for home theater setups/speakers (I don't mind getting speakers either). I'm asking for you all's help because I lack sufficient knowledge to make an informed decision. If possible, could you guys recommend some really great brands, your experience with them (if you happen to have any experience with the brand you suggest), and perhaps give me some advice as to what to look for when buying speakers/headphones? I kind of want to be an audiophile, so I need some really great advice.
Thank you so much!
Just so I am clear on this...you don't need voice chat capabilities? You are only concerned with sound?
In that case, you should clearly avoid any of the companies that are made for gaming specicially, as they focus on both sound and voice. They do sound good, but if you are dropping 300+ dollars, you can get much better sound if that is what you are after.
I haven't bought a good pair of headphones in years, but I don't think you can ever go wrong with BOSE. They have been around forever, never disappoint, and are expensive but are also very well made and have amazing sound.

Yeah. Don't really care about voice chat. I only care about sound.
If sound is all you are after I would honestly avoid Bose. Bose was fantastic 15-20 years ago, not so much anymore. If great sound quality is the goal and price is not a factor look into the following options. At the lower price point try the Bang & Oulefson form 2 headphones, you can find them for under $200.
If you can spend a bit more, upwards of $400 check out Denon AHD2000 or Denon AH-5000....a bit pricey but great cans, some of the best around for the price.
get the beat headphones
So I might be able to help here. I work at one of the top music studios in North America and we've been through just about all the headphones a person could ask for. If you really want to get into the top line monitors you need to forget Bose and Skullcandy. And Dre beats aren't great either, though when I worked with Dr Dre he used them, don't understand how.
Your best bang for your buck would be to grab some Sennhieser HD280 Pros. You could also try some Audio Technica ATH-M50 pro's
But I also feel it is my professional duty to warn you that hearing loss is a very easy thing to do and is irreversible. If you just want something to be as loud as possible you are just going to ruin your hearing and then no matter what you buy you wont be able to hear it.
I would agree with mojo, either Bose or Beats. It depends on what you're looking for in terms of quality, sound quality, & structure. By stricture, I mean what is the headphones made of, foam, or something else. Foam tears easily. Beats are decent I have jhad mine since Christmas; I have had no issues. They balance well with most music apps. The bass isn't overbearing; I think it complements most music well.
