Hi there! So I have been looking for new headphones for about a month or a month plus and I keep coming back to nothing... SO I came across this website a couple of weeks ago and realized I should research, but there isn't something here that helps me to the point of getting the right headphones (keep getting close though). Hence why I decided to start a new thread about it. Ok, enough of that, and lets get to what I need help with.
I am looking for some portable on-ear (maybe around the ear if the sound is good enough) that can play almost all type of music efficiently. I like Classical, Rock, Metal, Alternative, etc. (just not country and most rap). I need something that will be able to play most of those genres if not all efficiently. I am also an avid gamer, and would like to be able to tell where my enemies are in games such as COD (I scrim a bit so knowing where my enemy is is a huge advantage).
Most of the time, these will be used to walk from building to building on campus, so portability is useful.
BUT now that I explained what they will be used for and when, I guess its best to say what my price range is. Well I am a stereotypical college student so I have little money to spend but anything below 100 is ideal for me currently. I have looked at a couple of headphones that are around there and here they are. If you guys have any other ideas please let me know :) thanks! So here they are:
AKG K142HD (look kinda big)
AKG K172HD (look kinda big too)
Thanks again and I hope I have enough info for help.
