I am Abhisheak, I have been looking for a decent headphones from a very long time. But due to some constraints I was never able to buy one. But finally I have got a chance to buy a decent pair.
Frankly I have never been able to pamper my ears with quality sound, all the headphones I have used are so far cheap below ~$60 . So my experience in the world of audio is below par.
So coming on to the main topic, I will list my expectation/taste/preference (My language will be very noobish)
Genre I prefer to listen (I don't limit my self to any particular genre, but mainly I listen to these): EDM, Dance, Electro, House, Pop, Rock, R&B & Hip-Hop.
Edit: i like bass but the base shouldn't overpower/overshadow other instruments, it shouldn't be like after listening for 10 minutes I have to rest my ears, bass should be present and punchy but shouldn't over shadow vocals and other musicak instruments, bass should be there where it is require. It shouldn't sound like cheap skullcandy headphones.
Budget is around ~$200 (But I can extend if a better sounding can is available)
My age (if it matters): 21
The headphones recommended by you will be my only cans, so recommended a headphones which play well for most of the genre (I know there is no 1 headphone for all type of music).
One of the major problem in the country I live in is that there is no place to demo or return the headphones, so I have to buy the headphones blindly on the basis of recommendations.
Reading above you may have guessed that this is my first serious purchase of a music instrument.
