Hey everyone, so I'm on a research mode lately on finding some good headphones to listen on my bus ride to school.

My genre of metal I listen too is:
Power Metal
Folk Metal
Black Metal
Death Metal
Doom Metal
Stoner Metal
Prog Metal/Rock
Thrash Metal/Speed Metal
and the list goes on and on...

For me when I'm wearing the headphone and put on the music is that I want to hear(and maybe feel the bass) but not too much bass, I was thinking on testing out the Audio Technica M50x and the Focal Listen Wireless at my local audiophile store.

What are your thoughts on noise cancelling headphones? are they good or are they ruining the music experience?

And also CES 2018 is coming on next week so maybe I should wait until I see some new products and what not.

Thank you for the help :)

I'm afraid my contribution to this topic will only include my personal experience. I bought the Sony MDR-7506 headphones roughly 10 years ago and use those same ones still. I've listened to just about any genre imaginable with them, as well as used them in music production, and they're excellent. And they haven't just been sitting in a studio either, they've taken on all the elements and prevailed. Their longevity speaks for itself, since they were introduced in 1991; this review dubbed them the world's favorite headphones.

I would argue you can't go wrong with them, but if you can actually test out stuff before buying, that's the way to go. I didn't, so these ended up being a completely uninformed, happy accident of a purchase.

Recently I got myself a really good Bluetooth noise cancelling headset, sony mdr-1000x.

Been using it pretty much anywhere. Even if the sound is not perfect due to the noise cancellation, the fact that not a single peep from outside gets through (well, close enough to it when listening to stuff) more then makes up for it.
