Within the next week I'm looking to purchase a fantastic pair of headphones with your assistance. Lately, I've been getting into music, and iBuds aren't cutting it. Taking my listening experience to a whole other level is what my goal is.
I listen to a small variety of music. Every sub-genre of electronic music you can think of (Electro, Progressive, Deep, Dance/Trance, Dubstep, Nu Disco, Tech-Funk) Also, I have a passion for Indie music. But I'm very open to all kinds of music.
I will mostly be using these headphones commuting through subways and railroads, daily. The audio jack of these cans will be run through my iPad, and MacBook at home. I need a headphone with a nice curb appeal, fantastic audio quality, comfort, for under 250$ with tax included. I will purchase a portable amp, one week after I purchase the headphones but that is another post.
I have a couple of headphones in mind. I will purchase them at B&H, they have some great prices. (tax not included below) I prefer over the ear headphones, instead of on the ear. Not a huge fan of IEM's, yet. I've listened to my friend's HD-25-I-II by Sennhesier, great isolation, audio quality, basic design, built like a tank. What headphone for the price would offer the same or close of an experience to the HD-25 but a Over-ear design. (I'm not letting the "DJ" label deter me)
Pioneer HDJ-2000 (230)
Ultrasone Pro 750 (220)
V-Moda Crossfade LP2 (200)
I think those headphones all have fantastic designs. My question to you is, which is the best in terms of audio quality running through a iPad/MacBook, sound isolation, comfort, and lends it self well to types of genres. I really like the HDJ-2000's. Or, could you give me suggestions of other headphones for the same price range that are better then the ones mentioned above.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
