I have tried doing some research and know I want a pair of over-ear, open-backed, sub-$100 headphones, but I'm having trouble choosing between these two. Again, I'm no audiophile, so I probably won't notice any really specific differences, but I do listen to a wide range of music. Don't care much at all for heavy bass, though.

So, which one seems better?

Save up like $20-30 more and get some Sennheiser HD 558s.
