I am looking for a cheap pair of full sized headphones, preferably around $70-$80, but will go up to $100. I listen to mainly Metal (Dream Theater, Metallica, Slipknot, Symphony X, ect.), rock (Twisted Sister, Guns N' Roses, Motley Crue, Pink Floyd), and punk (Casualties, Sum 41, Rise Against). I need a pair of headphones with an excellent, but not artificial, bass respnonse (not like those junky "Subwoofer" Skullcandy ones). I want a pair that has powerful mids and great hi's for those face melting solos. Also, I plan on using these cans with my iPod, not any fancy studio equipment. I'm not going to be using these for 8 hours a day, but i want a pair that doesn't scratch or hurt my ears. I'm not worried about how they look (if i was, i would get a pair of skullcandies) so any type will do. I don't travel much, so I don't care about noise cancellation (if it is, that's just a bonus). Also, i want a durable pair. If it's a foldable pair, so be it, but I would rather take years of usage over portability. I hope you can reply as soon as possible. Thank you!
