How's it going?
I have been trying to figure this question out on my own, but there are so many different options and even more opinions about each of those options.
I am looking for a set of Over-the-Ear phones for mobile and home use. Since they are going to be used around others I would like them to emit as little noise as possible (quiet enough that ppl sitting next to me on a plane will not have an issue), and be reasonably noise isolating (don't want to hear them).
I generally listen to Top 40, Hip Hop, some Alternative, and R&B... My musical tastes are pretty mainstream, I don't really listen to classical symphonies or genres like that. I'm not 100% sure since I haven't sampled a lot of high-end headphones, but I think I would appreciate some phones that are not flat sounding... I think...
I was originally looking at the ATH M50's, but figured I would come over and ask for some recommendations specific to my wants. I am willing to go for a set of phones and an amp if that will be the best sounding solution.
I'm looking to spend around $150, but can flex a bit if there is something that is a 'must-have' at a slightly higher price.
I know that these threads are probably brought up 10x a week but I want to make the best decision I can considering what I buy is what I'm stuck with for a good while.
Thanks in advance for the feedback.
