I'm studying audio design looking to buy my first pair of headphones for mixing and recording. My budget is around $100-150.
My friend has a pair of Creative Aurvana Live! that sound good although a bit bass heavy. http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/speakers/headphones/creative-aurvana-live-headphones-review
The Sennheiser HD 280 cost a bit more but are more travel friendly and seem more optimized for working with audio. http://www.onheadphones.com/product-reviews/audiophile/sennheiser-hd-280-pro.html
Would be great to hear some of your impressions or if you have other recommendations.
