I need help choosing headphones

Found 31st Jan
I like bass. I already have cheap denon bass boosted headphones but they aren't that clear now I've been looking at either the skullcandy crushers, Sony mdr xb950bt or beats studio wireless (refurbished for beats though) want to spend £100 but willing to spend £150 which ones should I go for? or any other recommendations?

thanks in advance

Stay away from beats, they are overpriced crap.

Have a look here reddit.com/r/h…es/

Go into a shop and test them it's all down to personal taste and if you have any underlying hearing problems I personally wouldn't touch beats your paying for the brand not the actual technical capabilities of the headphones imo anyway

Most will deliever good deep Bass but it depends on the device driving them. Are you using a headphone Amp, running from a standard headphone out or just wireless ?

​They're good all rounders you'd have to try out a pair or try out some v moda crossfades or kefs m400s which do boost bass sounds

Look into ATH M50's. You can get them for around the £100 mark now.
Good sounds and good bass from them.
A good amp or DAC will help as well
