Hello guys, sorry for bothering you again, but this is a site for headphones. For this third thread I will restart from the beginning so everyone know what I am looking for.
I am currently in High School (15) and I m looking for new headphones. The ones I am using now are the Sony MDR-ZX600. I've had these for I think 6 months now (since October 30th). I know they're not the best but loved the clarity of these headphones. The reason I want to change them is because the bass is not punchy enough for me, it's there but just not enough.
Now for the new headphones ( on/over-ear or IEMs, preferably on/over-ear), here are what you might need to know. I mostly listen to rap/hip hop and r&b, and from time to time listen to Jazz. S yes I like bass heavy headphones but I do not want to sacrifice sound quality for bass. I do not listen to rock. My budget for these headphones is $100 maximum, and I can maybe go up to $130. I would like for the headphones to be:
-Decent in looks
-Decent in build quality (I will be bringing them to school everyday)
-Not to bad for sports, as I like to listen to music when I go out for a run.
- My mom hates big headphones so please try to avoid huge headphones
-I will be using them on an Ipod Nano and a Samsung Galaxy s3
So far I've had my eyes on these headphones:
-JVC HA-S400 or S500
-Audio Technica ATH-WS55/WS55x
Do not base your opinions only on these three headphones because any other suggestion is supported and recommended for this thread.
Have a nice day guys.
GUYS MAJOR UPDATE, yet again
I have received a total of $150 on Sunday due to my Confirmation, so now I have a total of $310. However, I wish to not spend all of the money, so the minimum budget is $200, lower would still be good. If needed, I will go up to $300 for new headphones because my MDR-ZX600s broke (one earcup broke off the headband).
