Hello folks. I try to keep this a bit terse because I tend to ramble. :D
I am looking for two headphones recommendations.
1) I'm going to buy my brother a good pair of headphones when I return from deployment (Seems backwards, eh? I haven't seen him in a few years, though lol) and I'm not really sure what to get him. I want them to be over the ear and he has a baby, so at least some reduction of outside noise would be preferred. Also, he's been listening to a lot of indie music lately (Neon Trees, The Shins... etc.) and I've been kind of getting him toward more electronic stuff. I know he digs Sennheiser but I'm down with anything in the ~$300 price range :D Maybe cheaper+amp too. We'll see...
3.25) Now for me! I recently bought the JDS Labs CmoyBB amp and a pair of HD 449's (my entry to ye olde audiophilia. thanks website!). I f'n love that stuffs. Of course, now I want more. I have been listening to indie a lot lately but I've been wandering more and more toward the electronic music stuffs. Specifically, Deadmau5, Eprom, Showtek, and most recently The Glitch Mob (amazing.) so I'm looking for a pair of headphones that would be great for that stuff. I'm not crazy into bass but I would like there to be more bass than the 449's. I like a really well balanced sound, and while the 449's do a lot better than my old headphones (skullcandy in-ear lololol!) I do prefer a bit more bass. Oh yeah. I'm looking for the same price range as the others (~$300) and full size over the ear headphones.
Let me know if any more info is required. ^_^
Oh. If anyone knows a place around the Hampton Roads area (I'm willing to drive as well. driving is funs.) in Virginia that I can go to to audition headphones I would be most appreciative.
Additionally, it may be relevant that I plan on buying a Bottlehead Crack amplifier to build (mostly getting it for awesomeness and the fun of building things). So headphones that would work well with that are a major plus as well.
