Overear headphone recommendation

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi there,
This is my first post on head-fi. Consider you guys are all audiophiles , could I please have some recommendation on Overear, noise canceling headphones with a price range of roughly $150 dollars?
Since I'm still in college at the moment , I really need some noise canceling/isolating headset to block out all the talking/shouting going around me when I'm trying to do work.
I'm into a wild range if music, mainly rock, hard rock.
Could anyone please take a listen at the links below and tell me what headphones might be good for this kind of music?

At the moment I'm considering the V-moda crossfade LP/LP2. (What are the difference of those 2 anyway, they are like 40 bucks apart). They are noise isolating would that be enough for a school/car environment? But consider they have heavy bass, it might not be the good choice for me. Well that will let experts like you decide :P

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate the time and effort you put in reading this thread.

Thanks for the insanely fast response. However I owned a pair of Skullcandy and they broke so now I'm thinking about upgrading to a better brand or something. Any other suggestions?

I am listening to the youtubes u put up...on my modded Mikros 90...
Sounds amazingly clear n thumping off my iPad.

It's about 60-70bucks on newegg..

Caveat...needs 100 hours burn in...
And the clamp will be more comfy after a few weeks..or some stretching.

Thanks dude, so i assume that this Mikros 90 will be better than the V-moda crossfade LP/LP2 i was looking at???? 

Also, does it block out noise alright? 

Cheers

Mikros is an on ear...the LPs u are lookg at are circumSIZED.
Mikros isolates well...i m in a BZ cafe now..outside sound quite muted..
But not noise cancellg of cos.
If u wan a total shut out..then bose qc15..find one on resale mkt to meet yur budget:)

I heard the LPs longtime ago...kinda loose on the bass.not impressed.
And for your kind of music..u need great seperation..clarity n textured bass.
All found in a....m i k r o s

The V MODA Crossfade LP/PL2 are better for electronic type music.

The bass is a bit heavy and the mids are a bit recessed, which isn't good for guitar work.

You would better of looking at Shure headphones. The Mikros are also a good option.

The LPs are more emphasised in bass so good for bass heavy music. The mids are a bit recessed
