My Sennheiser HD 202 headphones's left side speaker is kaput.It seems to be a case of loose contact with the wire.This headphone has given me great service till now and i feel like i should get a new one.

So looking around various brands i came up with a list.These seem decent and are also economical.

JBL - C300SI
JBL - T250SI
Sony MDR-XB450
Sony MDR-ZX110A


I've heard that the Sony XB450 has bass that overpowers the mid and high ranges.I prefer headphones that have good tonal/overall balance of the sound.Sound should be clear and crisp.Example,if i'm listening to rock/metal music then i wanna hear the low and high bass sounds along with other instruments.

Which out of the above would you guys suggest?

@kkapoorr: thanks for the input.Looks like the whole XB series has preference for bass.Might check out the JBL headphones.I've never used JBL products/headphones before.What's the quality like? Anyone here using/used JBL headphones ?
