I'll be living in the USA for the next 3 months, and coming from Brazil, it's a great opportunity to buy some sweet headphones without having to pay for the overpriced obsolete sets I'm able to find here.
I'll start by saying that iIm no great audiophile but I do appreciate listening to music.
I'm also a little of a bass head and I find myself listening to a lot of hip-hop and eletronic music. ( but there is always a special place for rock/alt. rock on my pc and ipod).
Having said that, bass and noise-cancelling are 2 characteristics I'm looking to have.
I'm willing to spend about $200 tops, and although i hate overpriced things ( really, you guys shoud come to Brazil and see how miserable we are at this point) I have to admit that Beats by Dre headphones have their aesthetical appealing, besides beeing made of sloppy plastic.
So let's go short: Budget: $200; Noise Cancelling, Bass, Good-Looking; for most eletronic and hip-hop listening, nice for portable use too.
Think you guys could help me with that?
PS: I don't know why but I can't stand the V-MODA headphones...not because of audio quality, but aesthetically..
