Hey guys, so I'm looking for some recommendations on portable over-the-ear headphones to work with my iPhone 5. Budget, no more than $500. I plan on using them at least an hour or two a day, longer on airplane trips, which is only 1-2 times year.
Has to have the following:
-excellent SQ, strong mids, good balance but fun somewhat of a basshead
-closed or open design is ok
-absoolutely no wireless technolgies (BT, WiFi, etc.), basically wired all the way
-must be portable
-100% use on iPhone 5 with AAC 256VBR files. I don't want to buy something that would take full advantage of it.
-listen mostly to heavy metal, but sometimes other genre's sneak in
I know it sounds a bit picky, but I figure if I list them, it would narrow down the choices.
