Need a recommendation for a closed protable(ish) headphones under 200$

  1. SilenceFiction
    I would love to hear your recommendations for portable(ish), high quality headphones under 200$.
    My ideal pair would be a closed, high quality, over ear and kind of portable with good sound isolation so people won't hear what I am listening to on the train\bus\etc.
    Sound accuracy and bass are important for me, I want the bass to be accurate and punchy but not over the top and explosive.
    Also, over ear is important for me but i can do with on ear if its a must, never in ear though, can't seem to manage them ever.

    I thank you in advance for taking the time to read and respond to my thread :smile_phones:

    A used V-Moda M-100 fits your description well.

    +1 on the Vmoda but I'm still going to whine about how tacky they look. The MDR 1A may also work

    I considered the V-moda M-100 but how portable are they?
  5. cossix
    I've never heard them but people seem to love the bass and I see them everywhere on campus

    I'd love to hear more suggestions though.

    Also, does anyone know how reliable is the V-Moda?

    Well, as I am not a basshead like the comrades of the above comments, I recommend this, Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7:

    The V-moda appear to fit my needs a bit better. Also the V-moda looks like it is more on the portable side compared to the MSR7.
    Thank you or your suggestion though :)

    Both were made for portable use, but exactly how V-Moda is best for you ?

    The V-moda has a big advantage in the portability aspect, and since I study in college and they will be folded inside my backpack most of the time they must not take too much space.

    MSR7's most folded state:

    V-moda's most folded state:

    I personally find that headphones that fold flat like the ATs are easier to deal with than the way the VMs fold. They can just slip in along with books instead of bulking up in your bag. But, if you have room at the top of your bag or something like that, the VMs should be fine.

    I have a different compartment for my notebooks and for my headphones.
