Hi, this is my first post on this site. Over the past couple of weeks I have been here quite a bit to research what might be my best choice with my next headphone purchase. I feel like I have been lead in circles and haven't made a ton of progress on my own so I was hoping that I could receive more specific, direct help.
The pair of headphones I have now are the AD-700's. I purchased these for use in my own home for gaming and music listening, I am very happy with them. However, the AD-700's are completely abysmal for portable use. They are big, ugly, and leak sound. For listening on the go, at school, during transit, at the library ect., I need another pair.
So what I'm looking for is:
•Portability- I'd like to be able to fit them into my backpack although this isn't a deal breaker, I'll be listening on laptop and phones
•Style- I'd like for them to look decent(the Sennheiser momentums come across my mind as a very nicely deigned pair of headphones)
•Sound Quality- Primary I listen to a variety of music such as: Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative, Some/little electronic/EDM, A lot of my music has acoustic guitar with male vocals,
•Budget- my budget would be < or = 300$, saving money is a big plus
I wouldn't be against getting a pair of In-Ears, but I don't know what that would cost in terms of SQ.
Thank you for any and all help you can give.
