Re: Need wire headphones for home use
I second Buster Darkwings post, the equipment being used for the source will determine how good the sound coming from the headphones will be. There is a very audible difference in sound quality when I have mine (Denon AH-D2000's) hooked to my receiver verses attached to my iPod. If you have a good Home Theater/Audio receiver with headphone outputs you should be fine with just adding headphones. Otherwise a Headphone amp of some kind may be warranted.
It's all personal preference but I would look for good closed over the ear cans for better bass and isolation. I don't mind open ear ones as well, but you get less noise isolation with them and awesome bass from open cans seems to be hard to achieve.
$200-$300 range is probably the best range for combination of performance and affordability from the major headphone manufacturers. The Sony MDR-7510 would be good lower priced but quality headphones to look into as well, $140 for a well regarded headphone with a 5Hz-40KHz frequency range.
