I am looking to buy a new closed headphone under $350. Bass and portability are the most important. Which are the recommended headphones?
Best portable and bass headphones under $350
Depending on the level of bass you would like, from least to most:
- NAD VISO HP50
- Focal Spirit Classic -or- Professional
- V-Moda M100
- Audio Technica ATH-Pro700MK2
From most neutral (not lacking in bass) to the occasional bass-heavy fun.
M100s isolate the least but still serve as a good portable. Won't be so comfortable if your ears are bigger.
ATH-M50 is overpriced. Besides, you can do better in your budget. Beats Studio, I don't recommend. Momentums aren't really that portable; they come with a hard-shell case, but you can't collapse or fold them. I can stand pretty confidently behind the V-Moda M100s if you want the bass emphasized.

The ath m50 is a good value if you can find it under 140
