This is my first thread and I come in search of help. I've been looking for some good portable headphones for the past couple of months and have made remarkably little progress.
I need a bass-heavy pair of phones Under $200 (max) unamped that will fit a Large head.
My music preferences range from acoustic to rock to dubstep (see: Blackmill or Mt. Eden) although, admittedly I am becoming partial to the likes of American reggae (ie. Rebelution). So a fun SQ is called for.
i've narrowed things down to these 4 because they seem to be the most high school friendly. (aesthetically pleasing, less than ridiculous cord length, small enough for backpack storage)
Audio technica ATH-ES7 *
Ultarsone DJ1 Pro
*refurb on amazon for $80 or in white for $129
I find too many contradicting reviews for most of these cans and can't make up my mind on a clear winner. I definately need engaging Subbass and relaxed fit for my humongous head complete with glasses.
Source will be my HTC Aria, Zune HD, and maybe a Cowon iAudio 10 in the future.
I have enough iems and am looking for circumaural now.
Any help would be appreciated!
