Alright, so I've got a buddy who's an acoustical engineer, and works for a hi-fi company. I asked him what good headphones I could get for around $150, give or take about 50 maybe. He told me to look at these:
I didn't really give him much information about what I'd be using them for or anything else, so I'll give you some stuff to consider.
-I only want over the ear headphones.
-I listen to music a lot on the go, but also at home. I've used bulky over-the-hear headphones on the go before, and they don't bother me as long as I'm careful and don't put my head through any walls or anything.
-I use headphones primarily for music, but occasionally for movies as well
-I try to use lossless files for my music as much as possible.
-I generally will listen to music through my iPod, or my Macbook Pro (2010 version)
-I listen to varieties of rock, metal, and hip-hop. I'd primarily want them to focus on the rock and metal, particularly things like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Russian Circles. Atmospheric rock as it were.
-Something not too leaky.
I don't really have any hi-fi or other audiophile equipment, hopefully that'll change in the future when I become a multi-millionaire.
I should also say that so far, the Sennheiser are looking to be my favourite, but that can change of course.
If you could suggest to me which of these would be best for me, or if there are others you think I should look at, I'll definitely give them a look.
Any other questions, feel free to ask.
