I want to get my sister a pair of headphones for Christmas. In conversation she's said she prefers over-ears to in-ears but being more of an IEM guy myself, I'm not sure what's good and what isn't when it comes to headphones. We agreed on a $100 limit with our gifts but it's okay if it goes beyond by some. She listens mostly to electric, house, indie, progressive and alternative (lots of Deadmau5, Tiesto, and John Mayer), so I'm looking for something that suites those kinds of styles. I know she likes bass but she isn't obsessed with it so it's okay if they don't have crazy strong bass. Also, I don't know if this is relevant, but she is a small person - she's 4'10 and has tiny ears so I guess a smaller sized headphone would suit her better? Also, she doesn't care about how they look.
So, in short, I'm looking for:
- ~$100, give or take.
- For Electric, House, Indie, Alternative and Progressive music
- Will fit a small person with small ears well
