Best headphones for hip hop under $150

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey Im looking for  some over ear headphones that work well with hip hop/ rap on my iPhone. I like bass a lot, but not too much that it drowns out the mids and highs. I also want ones that dont leak too much and bother other people. I have been looking in the ATH M50s so far, but i was wondering if that was a good choice. Some people have a mentioned a fairly weak bass and some leakage.

What do you think?

These are designed to be studio monitors so they are pretty balanced.  That means the bass probably won't be as strong as you like it.  I tried some a few weeks ago and found that I really liked how musical they were, but decided that didn't deliver the bass that I crave.  The isolation was pretty good.

 

I've done some research cause i'm looking for a similar thing.  I'm looking at a pair of Sennheiser HD25-1-ii, which are the DJ standard.  I tried them when a mate had them a couple years ago and I remember they sounded incredible, very strong bass and good isolation, but they do leak quite bad.  You might want to take a look at them.  There's also the AKG K167 in that price range and i've seen good things about those, I was hoping someone could compare them for me in a thread I started, but i've had no replies.

Any idea on the Ultrasone Pro 550?
