The only "real" headphones I own are Beats Studios. They aren't great and that's why I am here. One thing I do like about the Studios is that they are extremely comfortable for me but besides their cheap sound, they have a lot of sound leakage, limited isolation, and aren't very portable. I watched Head-Fi TV Episode 4 which compared the HDs and the DTs but I am still undecided as to which set to go with. I am looking for headphones that I can commute with on the train and when I am studying in the school library. The Studios are terrible for this because their sound leakage disturbs the people around me and I do not listen to them very loud. I have also never wore on-ear headphones before so I am unsure how comfortable they will be.
Here is some additional information:
•Budget: $200 or less
•Source: I'll be plugging these into my ipod, laptop, etc.
•Isolation: I would like a decent amount of isolation
•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.
***Also, I know the Senns have a removable cable but do the Beyers have one? I am not exactly fond of a permanent cable as these need to be portable and I sometimes catch on things.
