Hello, Head-Fi forums.
For the past few days I have been rummaging this website for a portable over-ear headphone that would both amaze my ears through sound quality and my eyes through visual appeal. To be completely honest, I am a novice when it comes to high quality headphones and headphones in general, so I was hoping that those with more exposure and experience to headphones could help me out. I just want the best headphones I could get for my money that fits my needs.
Here are some details on what I want / need with my headphones:
1. Portable! (haha, hence why its in this thread) & not too bulky
2. Price cap: $300
3. No need for a portable amp or any amplifier for that matter (is this covered by the 'portable' part? haha)
5. Use with an iPod primarily (iPod touch second gen)
6. High quality audio... (oh forum, please help me out T__T )
7. Aesthetically pleasing!
8. Low noise pollution!
Of the many headphones i've looked at, I've been most fascinated by the Grado headphones [Grado sr225i]; however, I was crushed when I found it was open air and created lots of noise pollution. :(. I like a bit of bass to my music, but not overpowering...
Thank you, forum, for your contribution to my search for the best headphones for me :).
I look forward to reading all your input!
