Hey guys, I'll try to keep this as brief as I can so it isn't too long of a read. \n \n Budget: ~$400 USD "max"\n Would like: Over ear, closed, comfortable, and portable-ish (subjective, I know). \n Music taste: Metal and rock. Occasionally EDM and classical. \n \n It seems people with my taste are recommended the Sony MDR-1R, Sennheiser Momentum, V-MODA M100 and some AKG models I know the least about.\n \n Right now I have Bose IE2's and they are what I am used to and I like them (but they're also all I know). Does that mean I like a little extra bass?\n \n If the MDR's are recommended by a land slide and I go with them, I have one question: these guys are $179 on amazon. Is there anything better since I can afford more?\n \n Music:\n \n Ice Nine Kills (metal): https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=9A0B11GKN5k\n \n Breaking Benjamin (amazing): https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=b2S5iNb-DTE\n \n Icon for Hire: https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=iS8sqgBgzG8\n \n Periphery (bair nair wer nerow weir) https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=CAq-xM3sK_I\n \n \n Hope this helps :)\n \n Thanks guys!
