I'm glad to join this forum as i have been reading it a lot.
I got to the point that i want headphones, under 150-200$ (i am a student, end even that is kinda out of my budget) but i really want decent ones. One thing i know is that i love BASS, but i also love clean sound (non metal sound - as i refer to high treble). Speaking of my previous headphones i had cheap versions of gaming headsets and so on(had ones that i liked but died too soon, i knew there was something with ~60$ price xD). I have also used Bose Quiet Comfort 3 - they were really good, but i listened to guitar on them, and i usually listen to techno/pop/lounge music etc. primarily techno. : forgot to add that i use Creative ep-630 atm. And Beats Solo HD which i gifted to my sister as im highly disappointed in those (not to offend anyone).
Currently i have home theater that i also use for music which consists of Yamaha RX-V461, a Yamaha dvd(which is piece of junk btw), Mission mv-8 on front and m31i on mission floorstand, and Yamaha Subwoofer. It is decent system when playing music, and pretty ******* loud for not that big apartment.
p.s. i am not an audiophile by any means, from what i have read here. Have in mind when writing that i probably won't notice miniature differences in some headphones.
Well what i was looking into is as i said a decent pair of headphones. I was looking into V-Moda Crossfade LP's (what is the difference with LP2 anyway), Sennheiser HD 518, Sennheiser HD598(oh my god they look good, but heard that they aint that bassy and are pretty expensive), Sony MDR-X10/XB920 (I like those for looks, and what i have read from reviews about bass, though i don't like them scratching so easy), and some more like SHURE SRH750DJ and Audio Technica ATH M50x. Detachable cord and carrying pouch is a plus.
I will be listening to music (obviously), probably watching movies, and gaming on those. I will be using them inside and outside, well or you could suggest me some in ear buds that i can buy along with these so i dont have to take them outside always, as i put in ear buds wherever i walk (and i walk a lot). So i will be using them with phone and prolly laptop. (i might also get a Fiio e11 but thats just a maybe). But i wanted those over the ear to be all rounder, hope its possible. You guys suggest.
I wrote a huge article and i really hope someone will read and reply. If there is something that i haven't wrote, you ask :)
