Im looking for some decent but not too expensive headphones for my home audio, price range up to about $150 pluged in a Onkyo TX SR 602 AV.
Havent listened to any yet, Im hoping to find some at a local Best buy or Circuit City store so I dont have to mail order any.
Any suggestions on ones to go give a look at would be appreciated.

this is a VERY good price. MArket value foerthese is generally $200. I have a pair of these.


I have their little brotjher, the SR-80 and love 'em. Hopefully these will be somewhat better and worth the difference

In any case, this next site might help ya. http://www.goodcans.com/

I'll second the Sennheiser 580's. Personally I wouldn't bother looking any further :)

I know that the standalone Magnolia Audio Video stores carry Sennheiser (not sure if their Best Buy locations do), and Tweeter does as well. I thought that Magnolia carried Grado as well, but I don't see them listed on Magnolia's website anymore. But, the Grados are very easy to find at independent audio stores. If you have some in your area, go pay them a visit and give the Grados a listen. I own a pair of the SR60s, and they have a wonderfully full and refined sound. Not quite as high end as a pair of Stax electrostats or other $300+ cans, but they provide legitimately high end sound quality for about $60-$70.
