Hello :) This thread is looking like a mess (huge recommendation threads tend to not work) but Ill post anyways: Music genres: Hip-hop. Only thing I listen to. Price range: Technially I dont have one. Obviously Im not going to carry around 500 dollar headphones around with me either in a public/street enviroment. Portable: Yes. Without a question they have to be portable Closed/Open: Open. I perfer open as its more comfy than having your ears surrounded. I dont care if it leaks sounds as that doesnt affect me. Looks: Around the neck. I listen to a lot of music a lot of hours during the day. Miscellaneous: I like bass in my hip-hop and very loud volumes BUT the most important thing would be that the artist's voice (vocals) is completely clear and understandable. Also please comfortable as there are some around the neck that you have to "stretch" before your body gets use to them. Looking at: Sennheiser PMX 90, Siberia Neckband Headset Had: Grado iGrado, Sennheiser PMX 60 I want to order ASAP as I like being with music very much and Im going to be at least a week without it (no headphones) because of shipping
I think you should look at the Pannasonic HTF600 with the Beyerdynamic DT250 velour earpads. The downside is that the cord is quite long, so you have to keep it wrapped up. It has great bass and after burn-in and a quick and easy mod or two, it sounds wonderful. Even after the velour pads the total cost is only around $50. check out this thread to read a bit more about it.
