Ill try to keep this short, but as a short introduction, Im trying to find some good started full size (portable or non) where I can get a better judge as to what Im looking for in a headphone. While the descriptions and headphone terminology are helpful, reading about and listening to a headphone can be quite different (Hence such varying opinions about the same headphones).
While I haven't had a closed set of phones in a while, Im looking to snag a pair or two reasonably price as I have no need for anything over 100 (No amp, pretty rough with phones etc) Before anyone directs me to another thread, I have read the 80 +portable/full size comparo pretty much back to front more than once, and also the 170+iem etc thread. In addition to countless threads titled looking for a headphone under x amount, or headphone x opinions.
What Im looking for in music: Not concerned with absolute clarity, I like significant bass, but would like it to be fairly controled because while I listen to mostly hiphop/rap, I also like electronic music such as dubstep house, and dnb.
What im looking for in a headphone: Significant Isolation (for use traveling, and at home) so I would also like them to be comfortable. I will not be using an amp as I mostly will use them for iphone and macbook.
Headphones Im considering and why im considering them:
Audio Technica ATH-M30- Look very comfortable and well built, read they lean towards a relaxed bassy sound.
JVC Ha M-750-Portable, apparently significant bass and good isolation
JVC HARX-700-quite a following, probably not portable as they look HUGE. Read that they need an amp, but look comfortable and well built.
AKG 81DJ (518 or whatever theyre called)-A lot of reccomendations for these for theyre bass and were rated very good for isolation. Read that the pads were very hard which is not appealing but maybe thats not true?
Sen 202 ii-Very inexpensive, look comfortable, bass, and have only read good things. (not very portable however)
Superlux HD688B- Never heard of the brand before hf but they look comfortable, but are semi-open.
Prodipe pro 800- Look quite beefy, but still portable. Coiled studio cord, the reviews look very good.
Sorry for the long post lol, I can start a new thread if necessary
