Hi everybody from Spain.
Firt of all, i'd like to thank ljokerl for its fantastics reviews which have been very helpful to me during the last months.
I'm looking for a pair of headphones and i´d like to ask for your advice.
I am gonna use them only on the road and on the library that's why i need then not to leek much sound. Isolation is very important too, but i live in a small city (70.000 people) where the traffic is not extremely noisy, so i don´t need them to be like iems.
I mainly listen to rock: Zeppelin, Rolling, Beatles, Sabbath, Allman, Alice Cooper, Aerostmith, BOC, Yes, Camel, King Crimson, Grunge, etc. so i don´t need them to be versatile. I need them to be rockers!
I have some Alessandro Ms1i and i love their sound, although i have never tried a different ones.
My alternatives are:
Ultrasone dj1, second hand, for 60 euros (81$).
Numark PHX pro DJ. On Amazon for 39 pounds (62$)
Shure SRH440, on Amazon.de for 82€ (110$)
Fischer Audio's FA-004, on gd-audiobase for 83$
I ruled the AKG 81dj out, as i heard they are unconfortable, and i think they are worst than the others.
And I cannot go for the M50s, HD25, etc, as they are very expensive to me.
At this moment I feel inclined to the Fischers as they may match the sound i like (at least one sound i like). They are BEAUTIFUL and reasonably cheap. The cutbacks are they are not really portable (not as portable as the others), and the isolation, which i heard is not great, although enough to use them on the library.
Numark would be second now, very closed to the Fischer, mainly because the price
I have heard wonders about the Shure but the price and size push me back a little.
I feel attracted to the Ultrasone because their asolation. I also think they must have a better sound than Numark and Fischer, although i don´t really know.
I forgot to say i own both e5 and e7 amps, so that wouldn´t be a problem, although they are not fine amps.
I am open to suggestions, but remember that here in Europe almost everything is more expensive, so i would have to make a desicion between these 4.
Thanks in advance (Especially to the ones who read it all, :-))
