Which Sennheiser Headphones should I get?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi I'm completely new to this forum thing, sorry. ^.^;

I listen to...

-House

-Techno

-Pop (some)

-Rock

-Classical

-Alternative

-Metal

I want something that doesn't leak & around the ears. I want something with good bass (but not TOO much) and clear sound with all the highs and lows. And it can't be too expensive. I'm on a tight budget.

Thank you!

Tight budget as in under $50? or?

Like less than 100, but I might be able to go a bit over 100.

Do you plan on traveling with them? Will you be wearing outdoors, need sound isolation, etc? Here's a little matrix that could be helpful in narrowing down your criteria.

 

  Ear-Pad (small) On-ear (med) Around-Ear (large)
Open-back (leaks sound)      
Closed-back (isolates sound)      
Semi-open      

 

While you're researching, I'd also suggest checking out the recommendations thread.

Around the ear, closed-back.

I take the bus every day, and some times the train/subway.
