    Hey!

    I was wondering if you guys know any great headphones around the $90-$180 range that's good for:

    1. Hip-hop (i.e. Epik High)
    2. Electronic (i.e. Daft Punk)
    3. Pop (i.e. Boys Like Girls)

    Im considering:

    1. Audiotechnica ATH-M50
    2. Denon AH-D1001

    However, i've heard the d1001 leak sound... which stinks.

    I like my headphones to have:

    1. Good looks (at least decent)
    2. Good bass (not too loud)
    3. Great (better than bass) mids and highs
    4. At least decent wire.
    5. No leaking of sound
    6. Good isolation

    Currently, I own the Klipsch Image S4, a great pair of earphones, but i dont own headphones.

    Suggestions?

    Your choices are excellent ones. M50's seem to have more bass than Denon's.

    derp.
