Looking for some good over ear headphones for electronic music

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello, 

I need some help finding a good pair over ear headphones specifically for music genres such as electro, trap, drum and bass, and the like. My budget is $200-300.  I've looked at brands such as sony, sennheiser, and skullcandy,but I'm open to just about anything. Also, if anyone has any thoughts on the Sony X heaphones model number MDR-X10/BLK , particularly for the purposes I have stated, I would be very interested to hear. Thank you so much for your time, I truly do appreciate it.

If you go to Best Buy in-store, they have a deal on the UE6000 headphone for $99, and that that price for that sound quality, nothing else comes even vaguely close. No contest.

I've done some research on those. As a fan of edm, I cannot help but wonder, do they have well defined bass?

Bass is what they excel in. They're an excellent compliment to my Stax, which are bass-light.

What are the batteries for? Do the headphones require them?

The batteries are for the noise-cancelling function. Unlike Beats or other similar noise-cancelling headphones, you don't need to use batteries to use the headphone at all. Turning on the noise-cancelling function makes the headphone bassier and improves the noise cancellation, but they sound literally just as good without using batteries at all.
