The best headphones

Hey guys, I need the help of the Verge community's infinite wisdom.

I've been using some in-ear Beats for the last one or two years, and - good as they may sound, yes I'm pro-Beats - they can get pretty uncomfortable if used for a few hours straight. It's time to look for some replacement.

What I'm looking for is:

  • good all-around quality,
  • durability,
  • comfortable fit
  • and yeah, maybe good design (not that important).
Price point is around $250, less is always better. Headphones or earphones, doesn't matter.

So, anyone got an idea?
