Sennheiser EH series is designed for anyone with a small budget but who still want a Sennheiser quality headphone.

As with most phones the sound quality depends upon the source, but these are a great place to start if you are just getting into quality headphones. These are comfortable, but can pinch the muscles surrounding the outer ear after long hours of listening. If a computer is your source and you do not have a desktop amp or good sound card then these will sound really dull. Plug them into your iPod to see them shine. Then make your decision.

Look for the Sennheiser EH 350 on bargain as all three versions ( 150, 250, 350 ) can be found at the exact same price.

A track to test them with would be Billy Joel's "Keeping the Faith". You will be surprised at how much bass these really have.

Compare these against the Grado SR 60i. You may like them better depending upon how much isolation you want.

These have much more punch than the Sennheiser EH350 and both require a burn in period.
