Here's my situation: I'm leaving for Afghan on Friday and I need a descent set of headphones to take with me. I want something that has good bass, because 95% of my music is rap/hip-hop. I also need something with descent noise cancellation, because I'll be staying about 500yds from an airfield. I know almost nothing about headphones, so all I've got to try out is what's on display at BestBuy. As far as the sound, I liked the Beats by Dre Studios but after reading reviews decided against buying them because of the durability issue...and the fact that batteries aren't the easiest thing to get ahold of where I'm headed to. I also liked the Sony XB-500 but the noise cancellation didn't seem very great. I ended up purchasing the Sennheiser HD401 S yesterday and returning them this morning because I wanted more bass out of my headphones... which brings me to here asking for help. With all that said, suggestions please?
Cliffs: Want over exaggerated bass response; descent noise cancellation; preferably no batteries.
