Relatively new to headphones and was blown away after listening to some high quality sets. I'm mainly looking for headphones to use plugged into my Macbook Air and iPod without any amps. I want it to sound good primarily when listening to drum&bass type music, but I do listen to a wide variety of music. But bass is unfortunately a priority!
Quick rundown of criteria:
-no amp needed
-sound isolation is a plus for me. but not those battery powered ones.
-*it's important that the music doesn't "leak out" of the headphones. (i will use it at the library sometimes. and i hate people listening to their music with beats on.)
-price range $100 to $350. Open to suggestions up to $500 but I'm guessing these will need an amp to reach their potential.
After doing some research I was going to settle for the Denon ADH2000s, but I luckily stumbled upon a thread saying that an amp is needed for those.
Some I found that piqued my interest: B&W P5 (is the bass not good though?), Audio Technica ATH-ES7.
But I don't know enough about these and was hoping people can recommend things that best fit my criteria.
