I lost the headphones I had, so it's time to bite the bullet and get a new pair.
I'm looking for a pair of on/over-ear headphones with very little noise leakage so I can turn it up without disturbing my workmates (I got complaints when I turned the volume all the way up on my old headphones)
Comfort is obviously also a big deal since I'll be wearing these all day every day. Can't have headphones that clamp down and crush my skull.
I mostly listen to Psytrance, Progressive, IDM, Glitch and Light Dub, with some occasional DnB, House, Electro, Techno, etc. so some cans with a good response curve for these types of music would be nice. I would love some headphones with good, punchy bass (I'd like to be able to *feel* the kick drums), but faithful reproduction and good separation are more important.
My budget is ~$200. I'd be willing to spend a little more (maybe up to $250) if it would make a big difference, and would prefer to spend less if I can do so and still get what I'm looking for.
So far the ones that seem to stand out to me the most are the Sony MDR-V6 and MDR-7506. I've also heard good things about ATH in terms of comfort, though I'm not sure which model would be best for me, or if I can get better value with them than I can with Sony (or someone else - there are so many options out there and so many conflicting opinions, I'm feeling a little lost)
