Looking for an all-in-one mid-range headphone and amp setup

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have searched for quite a bit but cannot seem to find exactly what I am looking for. Let me preface this first. I am a College student on a college student budget. I like all sorts of music, but especially like electronic music (Trance, EDM, House, some Drum & Bass). I recently started doing some mixing on virtual DJ software, and plan on eventually buying a mixer. I do a couple of gigs here and there, but plan on expanding. As I mentioned before, I don't have enough money to buy multiple headphones. I am thinking maybe $200-$350 for the headphones. I also need an amp and can spend upto $150 on it.

 

I need a good mid-range headphone with clear, but not overpowering lows (nothing like Beats), decent mids and highs. Soundstage is also important as it helps me gauge how the music sounds on a proper speaker system. It also helps with layering music during mixing. 

The headphones need to portable and durable, as I will be carrying them and using them during the gigs. I also want to be able to listen to music casually using these headphones as well (From my Laptop or Android phone)

 

I am currently eyeing the V-moda Crossfade M-100s. They are durable, portable, and in every review i have read, are decent sounding. Is there a one-stop headphone that fits the bill?

The AKG Q701 are said to be wonderful for mixing and truly seems like a reference phone. Paired with an O2, you have a fair setup.

I like the Q701, but they look very big. Also a lot of the places say that they aren't really portable and leak a lot of sound. Is there another option, which is a bit more portable and has less sound leakage?

The vmoda m100s are a basshead can. If you dont want that much bass, it isn't for you.
Some other cans to check out:
Soundmagic hp100
Focal spirit professional
Nad viso hp50
Shure srh 940
Beyerdynamic dt 150
