•Comfortable enough to wear for one or two hours.
•I'd like them to look halfway cool; I'm already asking to be given crap for not getting beats.
• I'm looking to spend no more than $200.
And my most important point:
•They need to sound good with rock music. I listen to a lot of hair metal, alternative, and classic rock. Huge amounts of bass just don't belong.
I know it's a lot to sale for, but you guys know a thing or two more about headphones than I do.

Do they need to be portable?

I'm looking for an Amp (preferable not an AMP/DAC but I'm open) I will use it with my phone (Samsung Nexus) and with Mee M6's so what I'm looking for is:

 

Not noise pick up prone.

Thin but can be wide and long just not thick (the G Nexus is a big phone)

keeping budget in mind less then $200 preferable  around $100

 

I don't need a lot of extra features like DAC or EQ.

 

I do mostly Indy pop,rock and mellow tune's. Is there anything other then iBasso that fits?

I mean as in portable going places outside of my house. I've been thinking about closed ones, sure they will block out more noise, but I also find it good be be able to e.g. navigate traffic or be able to hear people in my workplace (simply that I don't want to endager myself by removing my hearing completely).

They are a good buy at $20 to $30.  In a single word: "serviceable".

Hey everybody. 

 

  • Closed (I dont want it to bleed to the point where my cube-mates can hear my music)
  • $200 budget
  • Mainly EDM music. (House/Trance/Techno)
  • I'm using a Fiio E5 amp but I've been considering upgrading to something around the $100 range for amps
  • It'll be connected to a computer 99% of the time
  • Don't care about looks
  • Comfortable enough to listen to 7 hours straight a day

 

 

I've considered the ATH-M50's or the H25-1's (multi use for DJing use too). I'd like to keep it to a $200 budget even though I can probably get better with more.

This isn't really the place, but I'm sure Foobar can do it for you just fine.

HD-25-ii seems like a good choice, and if you don't care about looks the plain version should be fine (vs. the Adidas one)

Dakmart is a hit or miss. Sometimes they will pick up the phone during store hours, sometimes you have to wait days.

Your post is in the wrong section and probably belongs here:

Have previously owned a few $50-100 headphones, Beats By Dre Stuidos and my latest purchase Beats By Dre Pros which I just sold for $400.

 

The Pros did sound OK but they were way too uncomfortable so I couldn't use them for more than an hour at a time.

 

After doing some research I see that I can get much better headphones for $400 so I wanna know what you guys can recommend. I want a pair of headphones that:

 

- Cost around $400-500

- Sound better than Beats by Dre Pros

- Are comfortable

- They don't leak (as I use them around other people and sometimes at libraries)

- A plus if they look nice =D

 

 

A friend recommended akg k550 but they seem too big and after reading a few reviews apparently they leak too. I have already made a few bad choices that were really expensive when it comes to headphones so I really wanna get it right this time.

post #15764 of 29490

The only closed earphones I'd consider wearing for that long are the K550. They are a little out of your price range though. The HD25, M80 and DT1350 all murdered my ears after an hour, maybe two.

 

Have you considered iems? The RE262, VSonic GR07, GR01 and Westone 2 are all good deals at that price point.

If you are a basshead, get the Beyer Dynamic DT990. They have very strong and sub bass. 

In addition, the Denon D2000 is worth a look as well.
