RE: Headphone gift ideas?

Sony MDR 1-A.

I was really impressed with these earlier in the year when I had the opportunity to compare them with others from Sennheiser ( including Momentem and Urbanite), Bowers & Wilkins, etc. Very musical and natural sound and particularly good for closed cans.

I would have bought a pair except they are quite large (I wanted something which fold and can be pocketed). Very impresssed otherwise.

I have seen them priced as low as 90 GBP so I expect you may find street prices at around $100. Note that there is a Blue Tooth version and one with a built in DAC with similar model numbers. More expensive so don't get confused.
