Can an expert please point me to the best noise isolating headphone which has reasonable (i.e. not too high) bass?
I used to use noise cancelling headphones, a Bose QC15 and a Sony MD500, but I've been getting dizzy and I read that the noise cancelling feature could be disturbing the crystals in your ears that help you keep balance etc. So I would like to move to a manual noise cancelling headphone, that blocks out noise physically e.g. by having cups that go over your ears. I need noise cancelling because I use them when walking on a road next to cars etc.
My concern, however, is that I do not want too much bass. Even the Bose QC15 had a tiny bit too much bass for me (the Sony's didn't, though).
I see that the Audio Technica M50 have the physical noise cancelling feature I want, but then I saw that they have too much bass. Same for the Aiaiai TMA-1 and the V-Moda Crossfade 100. The Sennheiser HD 598 seem like they have reasonable bass but I don't know if they isolate noise, because e.g. they have a cloth pad.
Can someone just point me to the best manual/physical noise cancelling headphone with not too much bass? Thanks. I don't want to return anything and I would like to just buy something once and have it be right. So far I checked this list and amazon reviews http://reviews.cnet.com/best-over-the-ear-headphones/
