I'm new here and the best headphones I've had are $30 earbuds so I need help figuring out what I should buy. I was looking at beats pros at first but heard a lot of bad things, so I started looking elsewhere and found ATH M50s which seem very popular, but most people on these websites listen to rock and guitar things like that so obviously that would affect their answers. I need bass but not an overpowering amount, I want to hear all frequencies + can't I just use an equalizer if i want to change the sound to more bass?
Things to know:
Budget - $200
Music - Hip-Hop (Not ****ty rap though I i'll be listening to older artists and some new school examples; Mos def, fugees, 2pac, underachievers, flatbush zombies, pro era, talib kweli.)
Audio source: iPod Touch 4th gen, and PC (I don't have a special soundcard but I can get one.)
Type Of files: I have around 5,000 songs since I started downloading them 2 months ago and they are all Mp3's at 360kbps.
Other: If there are any headphones slightly over $200 but are very good feel free to recommend them.
Oh and one other thing is I was thinking about buying a record player like the at-lp60 idk how much that helps audio (im 17 so I don't know much about records)
