    Should I worry about my purchase?

    I was lucky enough to nab the Audio-Technica M50 today for $100.  I will admit, I was in the need for some actual, (relatively more) audiophile headphones than the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7b noise-cancelling headphones I currently have, and with it being Black Friday and all, I jumped at the deal...

    Suggestions for a friend

    Ok so I'm not sure if this belongs in Headphones (fullsize) so if it does it can be moved. My friend wants to buy some headphones that are over-ear, closed, bass heavy and isolation to him doesn't matter too much, but he would prefer if he could get it. He listens to rap and hip-hop. Price range...
