I just created a profile on this site so that i could find some help in picking out headphones. I listen to hard rock and metal. I like Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, FFDP etc. I also like to listen to classic rock like Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin. I originally blindly bought Beats Studios. These are terrible headphones for any genre but especially metal. I sold them, but took a loss, and I want to make sure that doesn't happen again. There are a lot of headphones that I would like to try out, but they are not in stores around me. I'm looking for closed headphones that have good sound isolation (possibly noise cancelling), don't have rediculous amounts of bass, but better mids and highs for guitar distortion and clear vocals, and that i will be able to carry around with me without having to worry about them breaking. I've been doing a lot of research on this, and have seen that the beyerdynamic dt 770 and Audio Technica M50s are both good, and seem to fit my criteria. Any Suggestions? My top dollar price is $300(the price i paid for my Beats Studios).
Thanks for the help,
