I'm planning on buying a bass-heavy headphones and, thanks to this site, I've learned a lot about cans and I made what I consider a pretty good list based on price (from 100 to 180€), quality, and type (I need bass-heavy closed cans).
Like I said, I need bass-heavy headphones to listen to Rap/R&B music but I dont want the bass to take over and "destroy" the mids/highs (That's why, basing on the reviews posted here, I'll avoid the V-Modas crossfade LP1) but I dont want a mid or high-heavy headphone nor a balanced one like the audio technica m-50 (of course I dont want the beats lol).
So, these are the ones that I think fit me best and I can afford: (If I make any mistake please correct me)
1.- Audio Technica ATHpro500 mkII: I think they have good bass, good mids and highs too, detachabe cable, durability, good isolation, and a price range from 120 to 140€.
2.- Adio technica ATHpro700MKII: could somebody please tell me the difference between this and the pro500mkII? the price for this one goes from 165 to 172€. If the difference is not that big I will buy the pro500mkII instead of this one.
3.- M-Audio Q40: I've heard great things bout this one but It's difficult to find it in Spain/Europe and the shipping costs would make it extremely expensive.
4.- V-Moda crossfade LP2: great style, durability, Bass, detachable cable, exoskeleton case, mids a bit recessed? (I dont care, unless they're extremely recessed), price around 190€.
5.- Audio technica Solid Bass w77: what's the difference between this and the pro500mkII (im talking extrictly about sound differences not construction, look, etc).
I cant afford the v-moda m-100 (215€), the ATH w99 (240€) , etc. I know they're pretty good but I cant buy em.
I hope you guys can help me with this one because Im a bit lost lol.
Thank you very much and excuse me if I made any mistake, english is not my first language.
PS: oh, and I wont be using an amp.
