Looking for some recommendations on good cans. I'm not an audiophile by any means so if you need more information please be as descriptive as possible with what you would like to know and I will do my best to answer!
The genres of music I listen to vary greatly depending on my mood. Most of the time it is Rock and/or Metal but I'll also listen to classical, dubstep, and Pop (Coldplay, U2, etc).
I would prefer them to be closed as I do tend to listen to my music loudly sometimes and have roommates or would be listening to them outside in a public area and would not want the sound to leak. Isolation should be decent but as long as the noise isn't high enough to distract from the music then I don't really mind. Honestly for the most part I would be listening to them in my room but I'd like to avoid open if at all possible so I could listen to them in public without fear of someone asking me to turn it down.
Style is a good thing but it is not a necessity. If the best cans in the world looked like a shoe, I'd gladly have a shoe on my head for a better listening experience.
My price ceiling would be about $300.00
I would be open to using an amp; I *do* have an Astro MixAmp for my PC but would need one for portable use so if it is recommended, please recommend which one I should look into purchasing as I know nothing about amps either.
Thank you so much for providing me with information on this! Have a good day.
