Hey I'm a long time lurker but just made this account to ask my first question on here. I'm looking for a set of cans that will be good in the bass department without completely destroying all other areas. I mainly listen to hip hop and a little bit of electronic stuff, but I would also like something that is delicate enough to play some lighter music every once in a while and still be able to hear nice highs and mids. I've been looking into the Ultrasone brand and in particular the hifi 780's as well as the DJ1 pros. They are both around 150 currently on amazon and this is about top of my price range, possibly 200 if I find a really nice pair worth the extra cash. I will just be listening to these from my phone/laptop with no amp for the time being so I will need something that sounds good without the added amp, and preferably is at least somewhat plausible to be worn around my campus or in the library without looking completely absurd and awkwardly huge on my head. I was also looking at the SR80s from grado as possibly a nice entry-level set to compare the more expensive sets to and see if the extra cash is really worth it. Any input on ultrasones or Grados, or any other set that may be able to deliver nice bass with decent mids and highs as well for $100-200 would be greatly appreciated.
