Hi, I'm new to these audio stuffs, and I'm looking for a "starting" pair of headphones.
Budget: under $200
Source: laptop and Android Phone (GNexus)
Music: mostly post metal, post rock (but also IDM, prog metal, ambient, breakcore..)
I'm mainly interested in isolation and I like a "smooth" sound, but I'm also looking for comfort for long-period listenings.. I hate sound leaks, I think nothing should be heard outside the headphones.
I see that here are massively suggested Audio Technica ATH-M50s, but I've found old threads, and I don't know if now are the most competitive ones.
What do you think about Yamaha HPH-PRO400 ? I'm in love with that design and I would find them at about the same price of the M50s, but I'm a bit scared about the comfort and sound leaks. Are these this better than m50s in sound quality?
Here in Italy we don't have your llarge selection, so please don't suggest me some unknown brands. Thanks. :)
