Heavy metal is part of the reason I joined this forum. I need to pursue my need to hear my complex music while on the go and at my shop. After poking around this forum for a day, I've learned that I have much to learn.
Here's some bands I listen to every damn day...
High on Fire
Karma to burn
The Company Band
Alabama thunder *****
I can't seem to hear this **** loud enough or clear enough. I just bought the Bose QC20. And I'm not sure if they are cutting it. Only had them one day. Noise canceling is great. But it's the sound I'm worried about. Not sure if I could get something better for the same 300 dollars.
There is a disturbing lack of Bongripper in your list, my friend.
You can get some pretty great equipment for 300 bucks. Do you really really need the noise-cancelling?
