Trying to buy "around ear" headphones.The market is so borked.

It's very hard to see what benefit you're getting as you go up in price. In the $100-$200 range they're all just standard 40mm drivers wrapped on injection molded plastic, even from "quality" brands like Sennhesier.

But you can get that from AliExpress - even with fancy features e.g. wired and bluetooth inputs for $15-$40.

"You get what you pay for" has to apply in some way - I just havn't figured out how yet

@jhol I use wired Sennheiser HD201/HD206s. Mainly because they're relatively comfortable and sound quality seems decent
