Hey everyone, I'm looking to enter the world of audiophiles like yourselves and listening to music how it should be heard. I'm looking for both an over ear set of cans and a pair of IEMs. I would prefer to keep the over-ears under $250 but I can probably stretch it to $275. I'd like to keep the IEMs under $125. I mainly listen to hip-hop/rap, and occasionally some rock or metal. What are your favorite or best(in your opinion) in these price ranges for both over-ear and IEMs? Thanks in advance.

I love to recommend the DT770 80 ohm (over ear) to anyone that likes bass. They are great for EDM and rock as well. You will probably have to snag an amplifier, a Fiio E6 will do just fine if you want to keep costs down (about $26 on Amazon, CHEAP). The DT770 isolates VERY well so nobody around you will be able to hear your music.
As for the IEMs, you can find a pair of VSonic GR07's (MKII or Bass Edition) for that price here in the FS forums. They're great all-rounders, especially for the price.
