I have decided I want over ear for more comfort on long trips. I also listen around people that don't want to hear my music so keeping the noise in is a almost a deal breaker to me.
I listen to basically everything except rap and country, with an emphasis in rock.
I like to hear base but I definitely don't want it overpowering because I love amazing vocals. I also like to listen to instrumentals in a lot of my music.
I basically need a headphone that can play many genres, and still sound good in all of them. If I understand correctly they are said to be a little on the punchy and harsh side but maybe something close to the sennheiser hd25 would work. The only problem is that I don't want on ear.
Right now I am looking at the sennheiser momentum. They are said to be uncomfortable on people with large ears but if I measured correctly my ears are 55mm which is way under average from what I've seen. So that shouldn't be a problem.
I guess what I want to know is am i making the right choice for what I need? I'm am open to suggestions, but from my research I'm not really interested in the vmoda or Sony mdr, unless someone could sway me.
I would like to keep the price under $300 but I will consider anything. I will be using an iPod touch with no amp, at least for a while, to play these. Sorry for the long post.
