I am looking for a good set of headphones for under $300 dollars.

Thread Starter 

HI I really don't know a whole lot about headphones. But, I am looking for a good set of cans for under $300 dollars. I listen to a lot of dubstep,,rap/hip hop,rock,and probably some more genres. They need to be comfortable because I will wear them for long periods of time. I don't just want the bass to sound good I want good clear mids and highs. They don't need to be noise canceling but if they could block out some noise that would be nice because I will wear them on the plane when I go to London England and my sister screams A LOT! And I will be listing on my iPhone,computer,and what ever else so if they don't need an amp that would be nice. deadhorse.gif

AKG K550 [Selling a pair my self ] are very nice cans, the bass is how ever very DEEP and has a nice tight kick, might not be what your used to while it is actually very nice. 

 

In addition the Ath a900x is another great can to give a listen to, in fact with both cans [if you buy them used] you would have enough left over to purchase an amp such as the Fiio e07 that amp would improve the sound of your iPhone and your computer, as it is a DAC [used with a computer] and a headphone amp [when used with computer and iPhone] it has bass and treble adjustments as well which would make a headphone like the 

 

Ath a900x or Akg K550 have more bass if you desired it!

Can I wear the AKG K550s out of the house or would I look like a retard? Also I heard they have a huge non-detachable cord which sucks.

Well I think you'd look like a baws with em outside your house lol

 

and yea the cable is big but you can braid it or you can do what I do which is to make it into 6 inch loops then secure the loops with a rubberband which makes it more manageable

I owned the xb 700 too much bass for me at the end of the day, the 1000 is equally as over bassy 

 

but if we r talking about fashion I wore my xb700s in public xD
