My specific needs:
- Listen to classical music (and music where it's all about instruments), alternative rock, pop music, and other mainstream music. Nothing too hardcore for my ears that would make it bleed or hurt.
- Can block outside noises decently (I don't know if noise-cancellation is what I'm looking for)--I commute for at least 2 hours each day on a bus. I also don't want people to be able to hear what I'm listening to if I turn the music to a decent volume in a very quiet room.
- Comfort is key (this will probably not be a problem, but I have small ears. I have interchangeable ear "caps" from my previous Seinheisser CX500). I currently use my ATH-AD700 headphones for at least 8 hours just on the computer--it can get pretty tiresome on the ears.
- Don't know if this is necessary to include, but must be compatible with Samsung Galaxy S3, iPhone devices, and PC.
I have absolutely no idea what I need in terms of base and other attributes based on what kind of music I listen to.
Right now, I'm thinking of
HiFiMan - RE-262 for $120
Klipsch Image x10 for $85
Thoughts/Recommendations? Warranty is important because I've been screwed over several times with the durability of the product.
