American Audio, Numark, Behringer vs. Sennheiser

I hope this is the right forum for this.

I'm looking for some good/cheap headphones. I listen to either trance/techno or classical music or watch movies so a nice freq response would be great.

I stumbled by accident into the American Audio HP 700 DJ headphones which look great on paper (I have no way of trying them out first) but the emphasize is put on monitoring more than sound quality per se.

Does anyone have any experience with them?

I've also been looking into Numark PHX and Behringer HPS5000 headphones and I haven't been able to find any reviews online.

Otherwise I'm a Sennheiser fan and I'll probably get one of those in the same price range (60eu that is).

It is SOOO important to get out & try some brands.

Specs on paper are only worth the value of a scrap of paper. You MUST do comparative listening. And besides sound quality, as one who years ago had to wear headphones or hours a day, you must do some extended listening to determine how well you can cope with any particular headphones over time. There always is a head exhaustion factor of discomfort over time. A poor choice will drive you to distraction.

Believe me, I know... But here are no big stores with many choices. In a store you may be able to find two Philips models and a Sony for 20eu. People just don't care.
It's better in Italy but there you cannot try any headphones since it's prohibited by law.

Luckily I can find almost anything on the net and order there but first I must get as many opinions as possible from people using this stuff.

Now I'm looking into an AKG K81 model.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
