Hey head-fi community! Came here because almost everyone on these forums seem well experienced and can hopefully share their insight with me!
I'm looking for over-ear headphones in the $200-$300 range. I listen to a lot of EDM, house music etc. I guess the main objective of my headphones is for house music type tracks (good bass is a must)!! However, I hope the headphones will be pretty suitable for hip-hop and rap too.
Noise-Canceling isn't a must, but it would be nice, and of course a little isolating would be nice too. I don't want to follow the pack and go for the beats by dr dre, when there are much better headphones out there for a similiar if not cheaper price. I was thinking of waiting about a week or two more for VMODA M100 to come out (apparently they are basically an over-ear version of the on-ear M-80s which got good praise) which is coming soon expected for $300. But of course, there are hundreds of headphones out there and I'm willing to take hear other options!!
PS: I'm not going to be plugging these headphones into any amps or that sort, just my ipod and laptop. So I was hoping for something portable. I'll prob be using it mostly at home, but I will take it in transportation and walks of that sort. Also, I'd say my head is kind of small so on the small chance that some headphones are known to be notoriously huge, I'd prefer not to get them haha. Also, I would like to have a small chord, nothing too huge. Thanks again!!
