Looking for slim/lightweight headphones for hip hop ($300)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I made an account just to get this question answered properly.  My budget is $300.  When I say slim, I'm talking about something like the ath m30, sony mdr 7506, or bose AE2.  I don't own any of the ones I just listed, but I believe they all have a pretty slim form factor.  I own a pair of ath m50 that I use for producing, but I want something lighter; they just aren't comfortable for me at all for enjoying music.  I listen to mostly old school hip-hop.

 

Suggestions please and thanks in advance!

Check into the SONY MDR-MA900. Considered some most uber lightweight headphones you can get can get. They are open headphones (no isolation) in case that is a problem. They also do not have much low sub bass impact (see measurements), but that's not a problem for old school hip hop, since that's mostly midbass.

MA900 or Sony mdr 1r.

+1 on mdr-1r. They are good with hip hop and are portable and super comfy.
