There are dozens like that on eBay.

Still on the list because of the tuning and price.

They're so accurate and inexpensive you can just get a second pair later! But most any good headphone can be eq'ed pretty close to perfection.

AKG K371Pro, not the normal or Bluetooth versions though, they don't sound as good.

That's the first time I've heard of a K371Pro. Not even Google seems to know about it yet.
Do you perhaps have a link to that model?

Asked a Harman employee about it and he has never heard of a K371Pro either. Just the regular K371 and K371-BT.

Cheap, good sound and comfort below $ 100.-
Aurvana Live SE (Basuically a Denon D1001)
Brainwavz HM5 (doesn't seem to be available anymore)
Takstar Pro82
I received an Aurvana Live SE that I purchased based on your recommendation. It has really great cost/benefit, but the acoustic isolation is almost inexistent. Do you have experience with PU leather PADs from Brainwaz?

All Denon (this basically is Denon D1001) are not great at acoustic isolation.
Sound quality vs price is great though.

Changing pads will change the sound and probably not do much for isolation.

Monoprice MC1060C are great, but think they just went up in price.
