Hey everyone. I'm a total noob when it comes to headphones. The first "expensive" headphones I bought were solo hd beats lol. They were ok. They sounded way better than the cheap earbuds I had but I hated how they sounded with rock music and their durability sucked. I sold them a couple months back and am in the market for some good quality headphones. I am still saving up so I will probably get them in the next couple months. I will be doing plenty of research but first I need someone to point me in the right direction. I listen to pretty much everything but 90% of the time I listen to hip-hop and rock. I will also use them often to watch movies and anime shows. I want on-ear or over-ear. I use them all day every day so they need to be comfortable and durable. I would also like them to be portable but I could sacrafice portability for sound quality. I don't want anything that needs an amp. I want ones with loud but good bass (not muddy) for hip-hop but they also have to sound good with rock. My budget is around $200-$300 range (I would like to stay closer to $200 but will go higher if they sound exceptionally good). Also, I kind of have a small head so the headphones can't be too big. As a reference, Dr. Dre studios are too big for me. They are loose and fall off my head when I move around.
Another question: What is your opinion on Audio-Technica m50s? Someone suggested them to me as good starter headphones.
