I need some new headphones and I am currently debating between:

 

•V-MODA Crossfade M-100 Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone (Shadow)

•Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, 80 ohms

•Beyerdynamic DT 990 Premium 32 ohm Headphones (I think these are open)

•Audio-Technica ATH-PRO700MK2 Professional DJ Monitor Headphones

 

I'm a bit new to this. If you can, please list the headphones from best to worst. Also, if any of these headphones need an amp, could you recommend one please? I will be purchasing these from amazon.

 

***Additional Info

 

•Budget: $200 or less (I know the V-Moda are out of my budget but if they truly are the best out of these then I am willing to spend an extra $100 but give an alternate suggestion in the event I cannot afford them)

•Source: I'll be plugging these into my ipod, laptop, etc.

•Isolation: I would like at least some isolation (so I guess I prefer closed headphones?)

•Type: Full-sized

•Tonal Balance: I would like an emphasized bass but I don't want anything else to be buried.

•Past headphones: Apple ear buds, Studio Beats (I know they aren't great but they were a Christmas present)

•Preferred Music: Honestly, I listen to almost every genre of music equally. (Jazz, House, Rock, etc)

 

I will be using these headphones on the train when I commute so I would prefer if the headphones don't have any leakage like the Beats do. I would also be using these for extended periods of time so they need to be comfortable as well.

 

If you have any other suggestions than what I listed above or need additional information then please let me know.

 

Thanks!!!

Another recommendation would be the Logitech UE 6000, yea it's MSRP $200 BUT honestly you can find it for around $115 or so. I enjoyed it very much, and the sound signiture of it is very versitile! Do give them a look :3
