(for less then $40) I am thinking about this pair: Sennheiser HD201 http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD201-Lightweight-Over... On that page it compares the different Sennheiser models and I noticed this spec: THD < 0.7 What does that mean? I listen to many types of music, Classical,Metal,Rap,50's,60's,80's......Rock. and I will also use these for gaming. More about : audio terms recommendations Best solution americanaudiophile November 6, 2012 4:20:35 PM Share THD stands for total harmonic distortion. Not an important specification for picking headphones. Best way is to find a place that has them and use your ears. JBB-SaDo November 6, 2012 4:29:05 PM Due to good review and a recommendation from a musician friend I went with the Sennheiser HD-280. Thanks for the reply Americanaudiophile.
