    These are the kinds of songs that I listen:
    The brand name that I'll be looking for is Sennheiser.

    The questions:
    • In which category do these songs fall in?
    • How do you decide which kind of music will be better served by which kind of headphone?
    • What do you look for in a headphone before purchasing?

    I previously owned Sennheiser PMX 200. Its coil broke off. It wasn't too comfortable since it was a neckband type. This time I'll prefer a headband.

    • The input device I have: iPod Nano 4th Gen.
    • The budget is <= $90.

    I have heard that Sennheisers do not have a good amount of "bass" in their headphones.
    I have no idea what does that mean and how does that effect the songs.

    This will be used while traveling in bus, so I would like to have a noise cancellation feature.

    I looked here
    http:// www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser...QN180"]Sennheiser HD215 Closed Back Headphone,
    but I am not sure if this is what I want!

    See what people are talking about this headphone:

    In what kind of songs do we "require" BASS?

    Does this problem apply to this HD 215 too?

    Yes buy the Sennhiser HD 215's.

    They will be good enough for the music your listening to.

    WOW. Why in the fuck do you post here and ask us about this? And why have you researched this so IN DEPTH if you don't know about bass? If you haven't studied frequencies, equalisation or about musical technology overall why have you gone this in depth I just can't compute.

    Just... Just test headphones with music you listen and your ipod and see which ones sound the best and yet has a good price that's my advice.

    Wrong wrong wrong, you gotta bring microphones and an oscilloscope into the headphones store with you. How else will you accurately measure the BASS

    I don't think BASS is required for the type of music you listen to. Just use your iPod headphones bro.

    if you just wanna listen to tunes and have nuff bass then spend 50 quid on some closed cups with a bass boost & you'll have bassy bus journey whilst your fellow bus takers know none the less.

    read the amazon reviews, they will probs help. peace peace
