    Default Mid range headphones

    I'm about to change my Sennheiser hd215, they served me well, but I want smaller headphones, cuz these started to annoy me.
    So, I don't want to spend more than 100 eur, and after reading/watching reviews of almost all headphones in that price range on the market, I came down to this 3 models (2 actually).

    Pioneer hdj 500


    Worked 2 parties with those. Really comfortable to me.

    Denon hp500



    I love Denon stuff, really like the look of these, but never tried them.

    A&H Xone xd 40



    Actually, hp500 and xd40 are the same headphones, made by Audio Tehnica just signed by other companies. Between those two its just price the decision factor, but I would probb go for denon

    Anyone used some/all of these and can give me some advice?

    Sennheiser HD25's all the way. Sorry if thats not the answer you were looking for but I swear by them. You can pick em up for about a tonne if you shop around. Mine have lasted like ten years. I'm not a fan of big earphones either and to this day havent come across anything to rival them. All I've replaced is the ear pads for velour ones.

    edit; I might be wrong here but the ones you have listed look like they'll break after a month or 2

    I love my HD25s, my first pair were a little dodgy (think I might have trodden on them once, so it was probs my fault) but Sennheiser customer support was flawless, they just sent me a new pair and asked me to send the others back in.

    Check out Ultrasone's and maybe the 100's of other headphone threads on this forum.

    Thanks for replies! I know hd25's are unmatched. I have done few gigs with those...
    When it comes to headphones, I like to buy new, not to have a headache that they are going to brake soon or so. Never mind, as I said I have checked 95% of headphones, including ultrasone, AKG, Shure and so, I'm just expecting some user exp. on denon/xone or even compared to hdj500. that is all. Thanks anyway!

    Oh, and denon/xone have a metal inside head band so I would call them hard to brake
