I've only used fairly cheap headphones before, but my latest pair is starting to bite the dust and I'm looking to get something nicer. I've done some searching, but can't seem to find quite what I want. The things I'm looking for seem to contradict each other a lot of the time. I've been getting really into drum and bass music recently, so I'd like good strong bass. On the other hand, I enjoy classical music, so a nice balanced sound is really important to me too. From what I've heard, the Koss Portapro headphones give good sound, but they also seem to leak a lot, which doesn't work for me. I've also been looking at the JVC HA S660s, but can't seem to find any detailed reviews. I wear glasses and have had problems in the past with uncomfortable headphones so I'm not sure if an over-ear pair would cause discomfort and leak sound.
Basically, I'm looking for:
- strong but not overwhelming bass
- good sound isolation
- a comfortable fit with eyeglasses
I'm on a tight budget, so anything I buy anytime soon would have to be around $50-60. Can I get what I'm looking for at that price, or am I better to make do until I can afford something more expensive?
