I have been doing extensive research for my perfect first "audiophile-level" headphones with no luck. I am a university student with a $300 budget that likes listening to Hip hop, Rap and sometimes electronic and indie. (I am a basshead)
I would like to use these mostly at home and in the library but many sometimes on the bus (usually use IEM's) and i would be playing music through my Macbook or my Note 3. I'm considering buying an portable amp in the future so having a amp driven headphone isnt that big of a deal.
So my current needs of headphones would be:
Comes with/has a hard case that i can buy to protect them.
I decided i was going to try the V Moda M100's but i heard that there are better headphones for the same price. After my plans of the M100's being shut down, i am considering the V Moda XS but i dont know how i feel about having an On ear headphone because that might effect the quality of the sound and leaking or maybe even the Beyerdynamics Custom One Pro.
I am hoping someone would help guide me or recommend me to a pair of headphones that would fit my needs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you
