what would you say is the most accurate headphones amongst the price range of:

- cheap
- mid
- expensive

what is still lacking in the most accurate headphones of each category.

I haven't tried a ton of headphones that are available, but I found a pair of AKG K271s for $160 B stock a while ago that sound much better than any other phones I've listened to in the $100 price range. They normally sell for $200 (I haven't heard anything else in this price range).

My criteria (is that plural or singular?) for finding a new set was that they be closed phones. There are a lot of phones in the $200 range that are open back...

They are a little bass shy, but fairly detailed and smooth sounding. Worth checking out.

I just got the AKG 701's and they are KILLER! i had sony 7506's and they were way to trebly for me and i had ear fatigue pretty quickly

the 701's are 3 levels above those. comfortable to wear, great long STRAIGHT cord, and oh the depth of sound!

they are supposed to ge better as they get broken in, hard to imagine

oh they were 250 B stock from headphone.com

For mid price range, the Senn 600's are great.

AKG K240DF, diffused field EQ! Great for checking a mix or listening to the effect of a comp etc. The D.F EQ is suposed to give you the sound of normal monitors in a real acoustic space. Very good, Very accurate
