Choosing between these two as portable headphone options. I realize they are in different price ranges but I can afford either.
I listen to very little pop or hip-hop.
More towards electronic sound, instrumentals (ie. soundtracks, orchestras).
Laura Stevenson, Passion Pit, C2C would be good examples.
Final Fantasy or Les Miserables fitting into the latter category.
Using these for commuting, so sturdiness is a big factor though I've heard both of them are quite well constructed.
