Hello, I need recommendation for my next headphone!

 

Who am I?

Final year engineering student. I am aiming for a first class in my degree, and i need music to study efficiently. So, a geek like me need a headphone as below:

 

What is your budget?

$150-$220

 

Are you OK with open cans?

No, I really don't want to disturb the person next to me in the library.. 

 

What equipment will be powering these cans?

Macbook & My Samsung Omnia 7 (yes, it's a windows phone!) beyersmile.png

 

What format of your music and other sounds will you be putting into these cans?

I listen to ANYTHING BUT orchestra, jazz and classics. I enjoy most of the top ten songs in billboard hot 100.

 

Do you plan to use them outside of your home?

Yes! Everywhere i go: grocery shopping, on the way to lecture, in town

 

Describe the sound signature that you are seeking?

I have Sennheiser hd212 Pro and Beats Solo and Studio. I am quite tired of a bassy and muddy headphones. I really want a headphone which can give me good clarity, but with a recognizable bass (but not too much bass like in Beats Studio)

 

To be honest, my favorite one so far is B&W P5, but its too outrageously expensive. frown.gif

 

Other Specifications:

1. Over Ear & Very Comfortable & Portable(Most important!)

3. Good Design & Durable

4. No need for battery

 

Did my research, and so far I am inclined to Bose AE2 since it's the most comfortable one (from my research). I have not tried it though. But there are ALOT of people going against it. confused_face_2.gif

 

Please help me for my headphone search, and need to ensure that this hard earned cash of mine is well spent. Thanks! :) o2smile.gif
