I'm really quite frustrated. I put a lot of research into the Monster Turbine Pro Copper earphones and I am still very impressed and pleased with them. But, sometimes, I just want the ease of popping some over the ear headphones on, but I can't go back to bad sounding cans. I've never had a REALLY good pair of headphones and I saw a review for the Audio Technica ATH-AD700 ($83 on Amazon btw), and have pretty much decided on those - as well as the open back variety (don't recommend closed please).
Well, I get on here, and open up the can of worms. I didn't want to, but I couldn't just buy something without knowing if there is better for the money. I'm willing to spend around the $100 price point (give or take $15 or so - $150 has to be REALLY good to go there). I would like to try the AKG K702, but I read that they need to be driven via amp and I don't want to delve into the amp business.
I just want, simple, balanced, modular headphones - I like treble though more than I do bass, and I want the treble to be accurate.
Another question... is the Audio Technica ATH-AD700 a modular headphone? Can you replace things easily (and upgrade?)?
Thanks in advance... and sorry for the newbie questions.
P.S. Keep in mind that although I don't want to amp now, if I were to go that route in the future, what headphones sound good without amping, but even better with amping? And, what would a inexpensive but effective amp be? This is more of a back-burner question, so don't it take center stage with regards to my OP.
I'm unfamiliar with how this forum responds to new posts, so if you feel inclined, email me at FliGuyRyan@yahoo.com Thanks!
