Hey guys, havent been on here in a while, so I might have missed some new stuff.
I'm really looking for something primarily noise canceling (I know a lot of people don't like the active canceling ones like Bose QC 15, Sennheiser 450's , Akg has one I believe). I like to block out as much noise as possible when reading/studying in library's home (tv) etc (so portability as well). I have a few sets up iems (meelectronics, ultimate ears) and some say they have better isolation, the constant cable noise can be maddening when not listening to music. I would also like to use them for music as well, so a bass heavy/punchy signature for electronic/rap/hip hop would be the most desirable.
I'm considering the 1) bose qc15 (I know, their cables are terrible, sound not analytic, dosen't work without battery).
2). Offering from ultrasone 580 or 780.
3). Beyerdynamic dt 770 (lowest ohm version, used only with laptop or phone.)
4). Vsonic Gr07 (I know its an Iem, but its probably my first choice in that department).
5). Possibly the Sennheiser pxc 450 (Noise canceling not rated very well).
Basically I'm looking for a portable, very noise isolating (active or passive), bass heavy, comfortable set of phones (I know thats a lot to ask!).
