Recently my old headphones, Sennheiser HD202 started having some issues (the left ear wire became a bit loose, so the sounds keeps getting cut off intermittently), so I am looking for a new pair to buy.Definitely want an upgrade from my these headphones.
Would like closed back and supra/circumaural preferably. I am going to be using them for long durations, minimum 3 hours at a strech, up to 8 hours, for all variety of purposes like gaming, movies, TV shows and music. And my favourite kinds of music are Pop, Rock, Dubsteb/Chillstep (dont know if this is a genre :p),etc, if that is of any help.

Thanks in advance :)

What makes you think Denon is not reputed? A Company that makes Headphones which costs Rs 120,000....:-? The biggest mistake you guys do is running after brands in Audio. This very attitude makes people buy BOSE and then cry over spilt milk when they hear something like a Dali or Wharfedale or Monitor Audio, at half the price.

Grado SR60 is as bright as piece of mirror on a beach.Its very very bright with a to end thats not clean at all.If you are in to modding get them or get the SR80i which is better.ANd for the Audio Technica M 30 dont even comare it with the Denons on anything let alone teh 510R:razz:

Im sorry, but I dont know much about audio devices. I was simply looking at some popularly recommended headphones on the net and wanted an opinion on them.
The reason I did not ask about the Denon one is bcoz Flipkart doesnt have delivery for that in my area, the comment about a branded one was misplaced and meant to be in a separate sentence.

Have u ever owned these? How is the comfort for extended durations?
Also the 310 model has many complaints on the net for extremely low build quality, and my usage is a bit rough

Buddy as for build quality its the best it comes at that price. You should check some Senns and AKG and AT at that rice point. Moreover why are you looking at 310? Since you have the budget why dont you get the 510R or AH-D320?

If i push up my budget to 6k is there anything better in that range? I saw the Sennheiser 280 PRO and Shure 440 which looked good

Denon 510R - I don't see any good reviews. Build quality is bad for its price.

Me too looking for one in the same budget as OP. Please suggest the BEST HEADPHONE @ 5k (Music.Gaming.Movies with volume control guys :)
