Okay so I got caught up in the Beats fad about 2 years ago and with my 200 hundred dollar budget (regretfully) got the Solo HD's. This past week they finally broke, and needless to say I'm free now. The question is what do I get now? Reading all these forums there seems to be hundreds upon hundreds of options. After doing some research, however, I have came up with the Audio Technica ATH-M50x and the V-Moda Crossfade LP2. The M50x's seem like they are better overall sounding but lack bass, unlike the LP2's. My budget is again 200 dollar, with a little bit of wiggle room. I listen to 99% rap/hip-hop, but mostly only new stuff like G-Eazy, Logic, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Tyler, The Creator. , Childish Gambino, Eminem(new and old), new Jay-Z, Big Sean, Drake, etc. Anyways, I need some help in the right direction. Bass is a key choice but my Beats just drowned out the mids and highs and I wasn't a fan of that. I would also consider getting a "portable amp" as long as the two together are under 200, but I'd like to stay away from that. Portability and comfort are both key also because of traveling, and the buttons to control the music on the line are nice too. I will just be using an iPhone 6 Plus for the source, 64gb. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
