    I've had my headphones for 3 years and its finally starting to show signs of breaking down. They were really great headphones:
    Mdrxd200: Headphones Sony
    And it only costs under $40

    The problem though is these are massive headphones with a very long cable (which I usually tie up with an elastic band to make it shorter). I'm willing to spend under $100 for headphones and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good brands? My first priority is that it will last for years (hopefully as long as my previous headphones). Second priority is that the sound quality is good. Third priority would be portability and size.

    Do you have any experience with them and know how long they usually last?

    If you want quality, especially sound quality i would defenitely go for Sennheiser Headphones http://en-us.sennheiser.com/headphones-headsets

    I had one for years, perfect sound! They are pricy but the sound quality is just amazing, those Germans know how to make good stuff! The sony headphones are good aswell and the long cable is very usefull when you're Dj'ing and need space!

    These headphones from Bose are definitely the best ones with a reasonable price that I have owned.

    I can't remember the name of the model, but I'll research it for ya. Please note that these are kinda noise cancelling, so you won't hear much more than what you listen to on your computer / mp3. :)

    EDIT: Apparently the name of the model is just Bose AE Around-ear. :) Great headphones.

    I picked up a set of Yurbuds "Ironman" series a couple months ago. They aren't the kind that go over your head tho.. but they sound great! and I think are around $30 at Walmart or Best Buy. They are great for working out and or running too. They have a special locking mechanism so they never fall out.

    You won't regret if you try AKG. For around $100 you could find entry level pro headphones.

    Skullcandy & Urbanears are possibly one of the worse headphones in terms of sound quality. I don't know about the Beats by Dre, but I guess they're not worth the price either. :)

    Bose and Seinheiser is my bet on the headphones category. Had a 50$ Zebronics with virtual 5.1 surround sound in headphones, which was worth the money spent on it.
    But I am saving up for a Bose next, let's see when that happens. When you do purchase one, let me know how the acoustics go.

    Dont buy overprized Beats or anything like that.

    Get Sennheiser or Bose if you want quality.

    don't forget to test Denon before buying headphones. not easy to find but it's a gem when you ask me.

    I use AKG K518LE (Red Ones) with my iPhone + making beats with them and they cost only like 100$. Bass sound is amazing!
