Default Audiofly AF56 * Audio Technica ATH-CKM500 * Vsonic GR07 * Yamaha EPH-100

I guess I'd define bang-for-the-buck as the most universally pleasant for the price paid. I know "universally" is a tough concept, but I'll defer to those of you with keener ears, more demanding tastes, and far wider experience and closets full of gear.

For the record, I really do listen to smatterings of every genre, so I do apply "universal" in a very expansive sense: anything from classical music to hip hop, EDM, pop, big band, rockabilly, and folk.

So which one is the best bang for the buck?

Audiofly AF56's for $100
Audio Technica ATH-CKM500's for $58
Vsonic GR07 Mk2 for $160
Yamaha EPH-100 for $125

If it matters, I am coming from UE Superfi 5 (v2) and Meelec A161P's.

These are tough questions, I know. What I just want to see what people's thoughts on these three are for the prices listed. If I had the money, I would just buy all of them, but I don't, so...

The GR07 is most likely the best of the bunches. But the EPH-100 is only slightly behind the GR07 according to reviews.
