I've been reading headfi for a few months now as I get more and more interested in headphone listening.
I'm looking to get a pair of closed cans that I'll be using for home use and some travel in cars and maybe busses later on. I have porta-pros, which I really enjoy listening to, but I need a pair of closed cans. I don't want them to be more than $100 buck. Under $75 is even better.
I'm looking for something that fits rock, alternative, some punk/pop/hip-hop type music (don't really know how to classify it when it contains just about everything). I need some bass that doesn't leave me wishing for more (not overpowering) and a nice midrange. I like highs that aren't shrill. Don't really know how to explain it.
I'm considering the Sony v6 cans. I've seen them around a lot and people seem to like them.
I've thought about the m50s, but they're currently a little more than I'd like to spend, although I think I'd probably like their sound.
Do you think the AKG 240s, Shure 440s, or Senn 280s would be a good match for me, instead of the v6s?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks for the help!
