Basically I just want something that I can casually listen to for hours on end and something I can commute with or use when I'm working in the school library without disturbing others.
I appreciate some of the suggestions I've been getting but with further research they end up not fitting my criteria. For example, the Shure SRH840s have complaints about being too heavy, light on the bass and sharp highs after burn-in.
I've been suggested the ATH M50s multiple times and have tried them out but I do not find them comfortable. I also do not like the fact that the cable is not removable.
Here is some additional info:
•Budget: $200 or less (I am on a strict budget so I am not willing to spend any more than this)
•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?)
•Tonal Balance: I would like an emphasized bass but I don't want anything else to be buried.
•Past headphones: Apple ear buds, Beats Studio model (I know they aren't great but they were a Christmas present)
•Preferred Music: I usually listen to indie (Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons), house/trance/etc (Infected Mushroom, Astrix), rock (Queen, Dropkick Murphys), and a little bit of jazz and rap.
My Beats are okay but too much sound leaks from them so I cannot use them in the library or when I commute.
I just want something that sounds decent with the music I enjoy, with zero leakage, decent isolation and is comfortable. Maybe I am asking too much and no such headphones exist.
