I've recently thought about actually using headphones now. I still use only earphones but I'm willing to spend a little in a decent pair. I'm not by any means an expert on audio and I have little faith in the brand for a good reason.

However, based solely on its looks, I'm kinda convinced I need to buy them. My wallet says otherwise (about $150).
I've read reviews where the bass is more prominent in the Aviator, which I'm not a fan of. I guess one aspect that would win me over is this; If I could listen to 'All My Life' (Foo Fighters) with ease, I'd buy them in a heartbeat.

Given my low expectations in the brand, I would like recommendations for better quality headphones within the $150 price range.

these are really good , read the reviews and you also get the headphone amp, stand and spare pads which is $50 of free goods.

ok even better headphones for a really good price. in reviews these are better than ones that retail for $250- $270. The Audio Technica  ATH M50 and Shure SRH 840. with the coupon they come down to $89.50 US.
