I'm currently in college and really enjoy walking around campus with my music. I'm also really into music, and while I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile, I certainly appreciate quality sound. I'm looking for a portable set of headphones (NOT earbuds!!!) that I can carry around campus. I typically listen to metal (Progressive, Death, Djent, etc.) or big band Jazz (Sinatra, Nat King Cole, etc.). I'm looking for some cans that have a deep, rich bass while also not overpowering the mids and highs. I also am in college, so I'm trying to find something around the $50 range. I've looked at Sennheiser HD 439s and Audio Technica ATH-M20X, but can't really decide between the two. If someone could help me out with that decision, or even offer a better option, I would be extremely grateful!
