    Allen Heath Xone XD-53's?

    I currently own a pair of AKG K271's but they're too big to wear in public (they look ridiculous) and I'm looking at the Allen Heath Xone XD-53's. I'm a drummer which would be the primary use of my headphones, and the AKG's did not stay on my head at all. My price range is around 150$ (I can get...

    m50 vs. hdj2000 vs. xone 53 vs. pro700mk2 vs. beyerdynamic 880? or wait for xb1000?

However, more bass is only good if it doesnt sacrifice too much of the rest of the sound. That being said, Im looking for...
