Hey, I need a new pair of headphones/earphones, I like the in ear ones but prefer the large headphones because they are more comfortable, what do you think I should get if:

 

- I listen to rap

- I listen on the way to work

- I like to listen outdoors a lot as well as indoors

- I like to be able to listen to music for a couple of hours

- I want a good quality pair with a decent bass

- Are comfortable

 

Ive found these head/ear phones and they both look good

VSonic GR06 are a very comfortable IEM that will have a signature I think you will like.

Fullsize headphones are nice (I own several myself) but I do find them a bit more challenging outside. A nice on ear option for might be the JVC S500.

I wouldnt reccomend either set that you have given us those links to. I have used both the CX300-II and the HD201, neither were that great. Im a big fan of IEM's. I have 3 sets of in ears but only one full size headphone. I use the in ears way more than the full size set that i have.

 

I know i keep recommending these, but i think for in ears the Audio Technica CKM500 is a good inexpensive place to start. They have a sound that is easy for most to like, and they are built well so they should last.
