New to the forums, joined for headphones recommendation. I primarily listen to heavy metal and dubstep. I will also listen to classics like Bob Dylan and pop music from time to time. I use my Android phone, a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, for all my mp3 needs. I realize the music I listen to may require an equalizer, and currently Google Music does not integrate with Poweramp. All the songs on my phone are 320 kbps because I buy from the Android market place. I was looking at a pair of Sony MDR7506's because they got such stellar reviews on Amazon, but a lot of people seem to be griping that the bass isn't the best. Now I've always been under the impression that for these types of music the treble should be up more and the bass a little but lower than the treble. I look for things like how a bass drop sounds (haha, sad I know but I love them!), and the crisp, clearness of the music. I originally asked for a pair of Beats but the price was so outrageous that I renigged on them after reading a bunch of reviews, and want something that is worth the money. I would say I'd be willing to spend between $100 and $150 because some of the better headphones have been below the $200 price tag that comes with Beats.
If you require any additional information, feel free to ask.
