Looking to upgrade from my Panasonic headphones. I like the sound they have, but I'm wondering if I can't do better for less than 100$.
I use my headphones for listening to music mostly, with some gaming thrown in, primarily FPS.
I listen to all genres, but I am mostly interested in good sound for Symphonic Rock, Metal-Core, some Dubstep/Electronica.
I'm not sure how great the bass is rated for my current cans, but they have barely just enough for me to enjoy them, I'd really rather not drop below what these put out in terms of bass. I don't need to necessarily go subsonic in frequency, but I enjoy "feeling" the bass and having it prominent. I could do with more bass, though.
Circumaural only, please. I can't do on the ear and IEMs start to get a bit uncomfortable after a while.
I don't care whether or not they are noise cancelling, from what I understand, sound quality suffers. Either way, it's a non-issue.
I DO care about how much sound gets leaked to people around me. I don't want to bother people around me, especially when I am listening to Metal-Core, not many people appreciate that genre of music, haha.
Comfort is important, too. These headphones are the first ones that I've owned that I can wear for hours at a time... But that might be because all my previous "headphones" were actually headSETS.
