My vote goes to the audio-technica ath m40x's - if you can spend a little bit more go for the m50x's.

I can +1 the ATH-m40's. They're a little stiff out of the box, and definitely benefit from a bit of burn-in time.

Based on my experience with those, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the m50's.

I also had good luck with a pair of Sony MDR V6's. Good all-around cans with a nice clear upper end and a present (but not too pushy) bottom.

Not sure about whether the OP is still searching for headphones or not but for anyone else interested you may want to have a read here http://www.pricenfees.com/best-headp...ones_Under_100 they explain everything pretty nicely, and as you can see the ATH-M40x's get 1st spot.

I bought my Grado SR125 17 years ago for 95 bucks... does that count

I LOVE my Ultrasone PRO 550's... and they're $140 right now on Amazon. That's practically theft for what you get.

I suppose my AKG K712 Pros don't count either.

Re: Rich, full bodied headphones under $100?

I would love to try those K712s! Still a K701 fan!

Still really enjoy the ATH-M50, priced a little higher, but once in awhile it dips down to $110 or so.

The Sennheiser 558 is a good choice for $99 on Amazon.

The AKG K550 is awesome, but more like $150 - $200.

I like Grados if they could just make them more comfortable.
