Hey man, honestly appreciate your input a lot!
I really am interested in closed back headphones, isolation is important.. my gaming/listening area is not in a very quiet are of the area of my home.
some songs i like
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGYaxYaxD_M my current headphones obviously produce great vocals but the bass leaves much to be wanted.. i want a happy medium. Bass above else won't work for me.. most of the music I like has a strong vocal emphasis.
What about ultrasone 550s?
Try and get a pair of used Denon D2000's or D5000's. They have awesome bass, only problem is they only isolate about 10 db of sound.
