Don't do that!
I understand about the cable stuff... But, being on a limited budget (and living in a room with thin walls), I focused a bit on affordable (REALLY affordable) headphones in the last years... So at the moment, I have my Stax SR-60 mostly for classical music (these are the very low-end Stax, you can get them for less than $100 used if you are lucky), some AKGs for when I want to hear what's really going on, and a Sony MDR-CD570 I had for the last 16 years
The Sony is still the best if you want to relax and hear your music "nicely colored", even a bad recording somehow sounds quite good on these - quite anti-"HiFi"
Ah, I forgot, for everything but the Stax obviously: A nice made-in-somewhere-in-China-headphone amp, a hybrid with an E88CC in the preamp. Got it for about 50€ (and paid some more than that for some good tubes). This thing is really, really great for the money.
I tried several wireless headphones, but only the $500+ range came even close to my old bastards. And I can't afford these.
