Hi, I am new to this site. I see that there is a nice collection of threads covering many topics here and was hoping that this community could help me choose a pair of over-the-ear headphones.
I do have a pair of AKG K240. They are very nice, however the bass is weak and it is also a Semi-open construction. I want something closed, noise cancellation is not a must though.
I was reading about Shure, Audio Technica, Sennheiser and AKG. I was also looking at the Beats Studio because of the bass and the 50 Cent Streets & Ludacris Souls. I know that the Beats, Streets and Souls are all about marketing and hype, which is why I want to steer clear from them even though they look nice.
So basically the type of headphone I'm looking for is one with the BASS that can match or beat the Beats Studio but still having the ability for low-mids-highs. However, BASS is priority, my AKG K240 will cover everything else for me. I am looking for a headphone that will be used to play rap/hip-hop music.
Looking forward to reading your great responses.
Note: It would be great if the price stayed below the Beats Studio. :)
