    VSonic GR07 (what I use) GR06, GR04, Yamaha EPH-100, UE TF10s. If you can provide a price range, I could give you more recommendations
    Edit: No offense, but beats are overpriced for what you get and they're not really that good.

    None taken however not sure if you are reffering to these as these are the ones I use...

    The Beats Pro headphone, a better beat? | The Audiophiliac - CNET News

    "I think the Pro will have more audiophile appeal, but that's not to say it sounds like the open-back designs from Grado and Sennheiser. Those two let more sound from your environment through, but the Pro sounds more "canned" than any of the open-back Grados or Sennheisers I've heard. That open quality may (or may not) be something more audiophile oriented listeners crave. The Pro's bass punch totally creams similarly priced Grados and Sennheisers."

    Any good low end ones? I tend to misplace my headphones a lot so I don't like to spend a lot on them. I listen to podcasts and audiobooks mostly, so supreme high fidelity is not critical. Having said that, its nice when calls sound good.

    A microphone is a must.

    Thanks.

    Well I have two things to say. First I should have asked OP if they wanted over the ears or in ears. Also, I don't know quite as much about overs, but I've seen enough photos of Dre in the studio and he's always wearing AKG, AT, or Grados. Beats iems (in ear monitors) aren't that great, and it's this that leaves me questioning their over the ears.

    Take a look at Meelectronics. They make a decent iem, they're affordable, and they offer a mic with most of their models.

    Good point. OP please refer to the style of headphone you'd prefer.... I could definitely understand your reasoning but that's almost to say, I've tried apples and don't like them. so you aren't going to try the apple pie. the cream of the crop the best one's offered. You're also talking about two different styles of headphones. I would never buy the iems from dre. Those are a rip I agree. But when you edit or produce electronic or music of that sort you are using a lot of bass and like the editors last line states.....

    Actually ear phone is what I'm looking for, with a price up to 100 USD.
    What do you think of new MX 375 model? And is there a specific model which enables phone calls via microphone?
    Thanks for the assistance.

    I currently use full size headphones at home (AKG Q701), but for something more portable, I'll be getting these.

    I have a set of Sony MDR-7509 Professional "over the ear" cans, and I really like them. Then again, I am getting old and my hearing is not at all what it used to be.

    I'm rocking some LG tone bluetooth headset.

    I use one of these cans with my Note 2: Beyerdynamic T5p, Ultrasone Edition 8, Ultrasone Signature Pro or Audio Technica ATH-W3000ANV. Via a USB DAC/amp I even sometimes use it with my LCD-2 and GS1000i at home at times.

    I've had these in my crosshairs but not sure if summer time use would be that great, lol! Def AMAZING sound out of these from what I've read!

    Does anyone have experience with the Parrot Zik wireless Bluetooth headphone? I'm intrigued lately by wireless, and this particular model is both pricey and high tech.

    Is that a Samsung Note 3 in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

    For over the head DJ style headphones, I got this one: from Monoprice. Comes with 3 different REMOVABLE cables too. And WAY CHEAPER than that overhyped Beats by Dre.

    And for in-ear headphones, I went with the Tenqa Bullseyes.

    Cheaper than the Tour or Urbeats, can still make phonecalls, and doesn't get tangled. BEST $20+ spent for each.

    Thinking about getting this too:

    Absolutely! Since dropping $300 on these M-100's is a little out of my price range....I'm now looking at the V-Moda LP2's!
