Which is better? First time poster

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

First time poster here and i was hoping for some help on choosing some headphones!

I am currently a university student looking for his "first" high quality over the ear headphones to listen in the library, on the bus and maybe at home.

I listen to mostly

-  Rap/Hip-hop

- Electronic

- Indie

Im looking for (in this order of priority)

- Comfort (able to listen to multiple hours and have glasses on)

- Durability

- High Quality

- Fashionable

- Somewhat portable (carrying in bag)

- Detachable cord (I tend to break these somehow from bending so i would rather have a removable sound cable so i can replace it). 

I was currently looking at the:

- V-Moda M-100's but after reading several reviews on the forums they seem the music quality seems to be hyped up

http://v-moda.com/crossfade-m-100/

- AKG K545

http://us.akg.com/akg-product-detail_us/akg-545-orange.html

- Beyerdynamics Custom One Pro

http://north-america.beyerdynamic.com/shop/custom-one-pro.html

 

But I'm up for recommendations on different headphones that might suit my situation. My current budget is probably under $300 US

 

I was also wondering how often headphones are remodeled. I am worried that i'll buy one of these headphones posted above and they might make a new "better" model because the V Moda and Beyerdynamics are already a year old.

 

Any help on my situation would be greatly appreciated. Recommendation and guidance is welcomed! 

Thank you, Kiwifruit

Hi, I'm currently looking for new headphones as well. I've also been looking at the V Moda M100 and Beyerdynamics Custom One Pro.

A couple of other suggestions I could offer is:

Ultrasone HFI 780 (Ultrasone are apparently the best for most electronic or bass music).

Sony MDR-1RBT (These are Bluetooth with a battery life of up to 30 hours).
