These would be my choice:
Look good but not looking for earbuds, want a big ol' pair of over the ear!
Have my Shures for traveling, a little too much emphasis on the lower mids, but sound pretty good.
Here's my choice for the best sounding over the ear headphones for $300. They come with a nice leather case and two sets of ear-pads. I also bought a special balanced silver cable for mine.
I own these and I think they probably sound just as good as my FD5 IEM earphones.
The FiiO FD5 IEM earphones are the best sounding phones I've found for the price of $300. I own a number of headphones and earphones, and the only ones better than these are the FiiO FD7's that sell for $600.
The FiiO FD5 IEM earphones sound better to me than my $1000 Koss ESP/950 electrostatics as well as both my Grado HP-1 and RS-2 headphones. If you don't want to buy the FiiO FD5's, I would suggest buying some Grado headphones within your price range. However, I seriously doubt you'll find any that sound better than the FiiO FD5's for $300 or less.
