I'm new to the headphone game but I've got a pretty good idea of what I want in a set of cans. What I'm looking for:
-Good looking (I'm in high school and I don't want to be embarrassed wearing them.)
-Good sound (I would prefer a little bit of bass)
-Comfort (I want to be able to listen to them on long car rides)
-Noise isolation (I don't want to be completely blocked of outside noise, but most of it)
-Little to no leakage (It must be my OCD, but I can't stand when people can hear my music)
-Detachable cable -Case (hard shell if possible).
-Affordable (anything over $150 is a stretch.)
I've had my eyes on 3 headphones lately: the Sol Republic Tracks HD, Sennheiser HD 439's, and the Vmoda Crossfade LP2's. Each one has something or other holding me back from getting them. I've heard that the Sol Republic's have a comfort issue, the Sennheiser's don't come with a case, and the Vmoda's are a little out of my price range even though they are all I want in a headphone. Of the three, which should I get? Or, can you recommend new ones?
Asking for a hard case is kind of crazy for that price. You might want to try the Koss TBSE1. It comes with a semi-hard case, has a detachable cable, etc, etc.
