Hello Everybody, getting new headphones for rap/hip hop/tiny bit of trance type stuff need...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I'm ready to get some new headphones and don't know what my options are.

 

I listen to a lot of old and new hip hop/rap. That's my main genre I'd say.

 

Very lightly but in second is some edm/trance type music.

 

I don't need to get too crazy so I'm just looking for a good headphone that won't need an amp, preferably under $200. The less expensive the better. If I won't see enough improvement from say a 120$ one to a 180$ then of course I'll go the cheaper one:)

 

That's why I'm asking this as I'm not sure what my options are

 

Thanks everyone :)

 

 

figured I would update I'm currently looking at the Audio-Technica PRO700mk2. 

 

Good? Bad?

If you like bass, AT Pro700mk2 is good. V-Moda M-80 is also good if you don't mind them being on ears.

You're better off going with something like the V-Moda Crossfade LP2 if you're not planning to use an amp.

The PRO700 MK2 is great for rap but it needs an amp to shine.

I wouldn't be against an amp considering the reasonable price of the PRO700, I hadn't seen they are recommended to use an amp. 

 

I'd sometimes be using them on the go without an amp but mostly at home where I could be using one.
