I am looking for headphones that cover my ear and block out most of external sound. But I don't know which brand

I already have a great pair of in-ear ones and earbuds but need something clunky : )

My budget is under $150, will be used with my PB and iPod.

My main music interest is trance/techno so something with good bass would be nice.

Please help me buy good pair.

My work regulations do not allow earbuds so I have to get the big over the ear ones. I want to get ones that have good sound

debating between brands, need advice.

Sennheiser HD 280 Pro -- Don't buy if you have a big head!! (trust me, haha)

beyerdynamic DT 250-80 -- probably your best bet if you wont be using an amp.


Also, you may get better feedback at www.headfi.org

Brand wise, you'd probably be wise to stay with the big boys (sennheiser, AKG, Beyerdynamic, Grado)

Ok I checked that site out, thanks for the link.
I am overwhelmed by the choices and terminology...
I think I am going to go to the audio store tomorrow and try some out.

Thank you Jah...I'm so Blessed
I have a sony brand overhead.....it squeezes the matter out of your head...I can only stand the pain for like 10 minutes then I take it off.

I'm also in the market for some new ones...might have to check out ones that cost more than $19.99


Bless

Sennheiser HD 25s....if you have the cash. They are about £115 here in the UK. All the parts are individually replaceable (ear cups, headband, lead) and the sound quality and volume is fantastic.
