ok, ive been looking at mostly audio technica but am open to other brands.
budget is 300 but I would prefer to spend less....
will definitely spend the 3 for higher quality though. its worth it to me
I mostly listen to electronic so bass is important.


aaaaaand go!

I don't spend anywhere near that much for headphones, but my first thought is Beats by Dr Dre. They seem to be top of the line kinda stuff.

I'm sorry Beats by Dr Dre wasn't up to snuff for you.

over ear, wired because I don't need brain cancer to go with my deafness

only other one i can reccommend are a pair of Sony MDR-1R. i dont think you NEED an amp with the sennheisers although for headphones like these they are reccommended for sound quality it comes with both the 6.3 and 3.5mm lines.

edit: nvm
