Cans with punchy but not overpowering bass

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all, this is my first post here. Nice to meet you all, I am Sam.

 

Any way on to the headphones, I am looking for a pair of headphones that have a bass that is clear and punchy but does not overpower the mids and highs.

 

Music:

-Metal

-Indie Folk

-Classical

-Classic Rock

 

Price:

$150-$300 but i would prefer them to be as cheep as possible but have the best sound quality in the price range I have specified.

 

Form:

I don't really care what type of headphone they are as long as they are comfortable but i want them to be at least a little pleasing to the eyes.

 

Amp:

I have an $80-ish, but it must be portable. Also I can take from the headphone budget if you think the improvement made by the amp would be better than a more expensive pair of cans.

The Sennheiser HD 25-1's are pretty punchy with good bass and balanced mids/highs, haven't tried many other headphones that are 'punchier' than that, and they go for about $200. It's a really nice sounding phone for rock/metal (double bass drumming sounds awesome on these), and it's super sturdy and small enough for convenient portable use as well.

If you aren't worried about sub-bass extension and want punchy bass, look into entry-level Grado cans.

I would recommend the Shure SRH750DJ's. They have a nice low end and a balanced top end. They come in well under your $150 budget.
