Hey everyone, so I am looking for a nice pair of over-the-ears for around $150. I listen to hiphop/rap/rnb/reggae/dancehall/a bit of techno/dance. Any suggestions?
 
I've been looking into the AKG K701's, though they are a little higher than my budget. Thanks for any suggestions!

Are you going to be using them with an amp?
If not I'd suggest the Shure SRH-440. If you can find the SRH-840 for under $150 I'd get those instead. The SRH-440 is a better fit for many people, including me due to a smaller headband. Don't let anyone tell you the SRH-840 is bass light, because it's definitely not true. Maybe compared to the M50! The SRH-840 does have more bass then the 440 though.
 
The M50 would be another idea, but I ended up with the AKG k240 after selling them. Those are semi-open and another headphone to consider. They're not portable though. They have the best comfort out of any headphone under $150.
