I listen to absolutely everything, with an emphasis on progressive metal, folk/indie, electronica, and post rock (basically I need something that can handle everything very well, as I'm pretty picky when it comes to sound) I've never bought a pair of audiophile quality headphones, but I've owned pairs of skullcandies (absolutely terrible sound colouring, bass bleed, and the cords break within weeks) I finally have access to some cash, and I'm looking to get into sound production as a hobby.
So here are the facts
- 200 dollar budget
- Durable cord
- Great all around performance
- NO bass bleed
- Quality treble, bass, and mids that arent recessed
- Over ear (preferred, but not necessary)
If you feel like I've missed some key components, feel free to educate me in anything else I should be looking for, I'm really new to all of this, thanks gang!
[Edit] Just like to include that I've been looking at the ATH-a700's, if anyone would like to comment on those.
