I did not see a thread like this in the "Portable" section so I'll ask here. I've been looking at ljokerl "shootout" list and I think I'm pretty close to making a buy. Any other recommendations would be appreciated, but these are the two I'm looking at. My budget is under a 100 with preferences lying under isolation and portability given I'll be using these everywhere from my macbook to my cell phone (Mytouch 4g).
In terms of music, I don't wanna call myself a "bass" person, but I do enjoy a strong bump in rap songs (Eminem, Dre, Kanye). On the flip side, I listen to rock just as much (Oasis, Offspring) so hearing the other instruments in their full clarity among the "little things" you wouldn't hear with cheap headphones is what I enjoy as well. So yeah, if those two aren't good for what I want, I don't mind hearing recommendations =).
