Headphones for Epic/Orchestral Music Under/Around $300

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello all, I'm looking for some good headphones for approximately $300 (willing to go a little higher but not too much) for listening to "epic," orchestral music in general. I listen to Two Steps from Hell a lot, so songs like these...I'd want them to be portable with an iPod, but I can get an amp for that. One more thing, even though I kind of focus my music on the genre I mentioned, I would also like the headphones to play well (not excellent) with other genres as well. Thanks.

Interestingly enough, those were the two headphones I was paying attention to before starting this thread. How do they compare with each other? If someone could recommend similar closed headphones (looking for portability with amp), that would be appreciated as well. Thanks.

Just wanted to mention that I would want the most important aspect of the headphones to be a really musical and acoustic sound for classical and orchestral music (things like movie scores, and overall concert pieces). Just for reference, this is probably something I listen to for about 2 hours on around a daily basis:
