Looking for a pair of headphones under <$80. Portability, good sound, decent bass, comfortable, modest isolation/leakage. I mainly listen to EDM (House/Techno/Trance/DnB), but also some Classical and Old School Rap/Hip Hop. These cans will be largely used on-the-go (buses, libraries, planes, walking outside). Sadly, I power these headphones only through my laptop, a LG G2 smartphone, and an old iPod Touch. In the future, I plan to purchase a FiiO.
I purchased the Sennheiser HD280 Pro's a few days ago for $67. The sound and bass is OK, isolation/leakage is great, durability is awesome, pretty comfortable, however they were very bulky and heavy especially when listening to music for a long period of time.
Open to any recommendations and suggestions.
One thing to note: I have big ears.
After browsing around the forums, I've made a list of which headphones appealed to me the most based on reviews:
-Creative Aurvana Live! (CAL!): $74
-Superlux HD681 Evo: $37
-Superlux HD668B: $39
-Gemini DJ HSR-1000: $55
-Sennheiser HD518: $80
-JVC HA-S680: $60
-Panasonic RP-HTF600: $30
-Takstar HI-2050: $46
