First of all, thanks for taking the time to read/check up on my thread! Hopefully I'll receive some helpful advice and finally make my decision regarding this.

 

This will be my first time getting a pair of "real" headphones, to say, and of course I'm slightly unsure as to where to start looking or rather, what to look for, haha. I've done some researching of my own but in the end many of the terms used are pretty foreign to me, so in the end I decided to ask for some advice directly. That's about it, so well, here I am!

 

Well I think I've sort of narrowed it down a bit, but of course, I don't really know what to look for, thankfully there have been a few other similar threads in the past so I'm not all that lost, but yeah.

 

Budget is around ~$100 but I'm willing to spend a bit more if it's really worth it. Now, j-music is a pretty broad thing, so basically I'm kind of looking for headphones capable of sounding "ok" no matter what I listen to, but female vocals have priority of course. I also like j-core so some bass and the like would be nice to have I guess, but again, I don't really know what I should look for. I'll just post a few samples to give an idea of what I usually listen to:

Hopefully I'm not asking for the impossible with this budget, and I'm open for recommendations. Thread title lists what I consider would be ok with my current budget. I also had my eye on the Audio Technica ATH-AD700, but not sure if they would be ideal for what I want.
