Thanks for the feedback. In 12 years I've broken many a pair simply because of how we use them. On and off a lot. I'm a lifer with this, want a pair I can keep for A While. In case you find yourself looking I've been studying Beyer Dynamics as of late.
Headsets used everyday... are simply going to wear out. I agree with danmac in that the SONY MDR-7506 is a solid performer, however it depends on an individual's hearing. What sounds good to one person, sounds like broken bongos to another. Just be prepared to repair or replace a headset at least every 2 years. Check with music equipment stores, compare, buy what works for you, and write it off your taxes.
I bought earbuds, they were Sony and used them when I did a show for a few years, I got tired of sweating under regular cans. I wanted to get some stethoscope headphones like Imus but could never find them, I think they were special made by Sennheiser. I love the earbuds, they sound better than any cans I ever bought. Plus, I can take one out and hang it from my shirt neck and chat in studio until it's time to go back on air. If you are on a budget, give them a try.I used the MDR-E818LP and the MDR-E829V models. I never spent more than $20 and each one lasted more than 5 years. I just bought a second pair because now I do VO at home and don't need all the bass, so the wife uses the old ones to jog with. Good luck!

Yeah, great and fantastic article sir, we've got guidelines from this like you've said that if we're in France there could be a lots of ways to learn and to do things, very nice article and thanks for sharing your valuable thoughts with us.
I have went through quite a few pairs over the years. I loved sony's for so long. Then I tried Earbuds top of the line but no that was no good. Then I broke another pair of Shure Headphones. The guy at the store told me to get audio-technia ath-m45. I was like they look cheap. I bought them over a year ago and they work great. NOTE: don't forget the replacement warranty.
When I got out of full-time radio in 1994, I had a pair of AKG K-240's...always sounded great, durable and never let me down....and when I got back INTO radio in 2010, the station bought me the same ones, at my request. Still great sound and going strong. Love 'em
