I love my Sennheiser PX95 that I bought two years ago. It's simple. Lightweight yet sturdy with its metal frame. Does not over-heat your eats. The sound is more than decent. And it... used to be cheap ($35 back in the days).
Now Sennheiser seems to have discontinued the production of the PX95, and you can only buy it second-hand for about $75.
Is any other manufacturer making headphones similar to the PX95 these days?
Specifically, I am looking for headphones:
- Under $40.
- ``Open-ears", i.e., with speaker that do not cover the whole ear and avoid overheating your ears.
- Sturdy, ideally with a metal frame (I have been throwing my PX95 in my backpack without much care for more than 2 years, and it's like new, no damage to the frame, the speakers, or the cord),
- That provide a decent sound for the price, comparable or just as good as the PX95 (I realize this item is harder to evaluate...)
