- $120-130: Solid bass that doesn't bleed into the mids; bass boost button for eXtra Bass
Designed more for Hip-Hop and Dubstep, but still sounds great for wide range of genres. 18-20hrs of battery and nice controls.
Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT
- $140 - 150: Most balanced sound with tight, controlled bass. Best for wide range of genres. Highs are a bit underwhelming but not a deal breaker. 23-25hrs of battery; controls similar to Sony's.
Skullcandy Crusher Wireless
- $150-170 - Probably my favorite looking of the 3. Primarily designed for bass, it features a bass slider that allows you to control the amount of bass, but you still get a nice punch without it. The sound isn't for everyone IMO, as the bass may sound somewhat artificial at even medium level on the slider, but the highs are sharp and overall soundstage is crisp. Outstanding battery life at 40hrs, with simple controls.
I use all 3 at different times. The Sony earcups are huuuge and look silly outdoors, but are stupid comfortable. They also don't fold and are not as portable as the others, so I use these exclusively at home.
The other 2 are both foldable and sleek looking. I usually use the skullcandy's more outdoors as I listen primarily to Hip-Hop, but again, the sennheiser's are very well balanced and a bit more clear and crisp. If you're looking for an emphasis on bass however, seek out the other 2 instead.
