Well, I currently own the dt880 250 ohm edition, and my previous headphones were the sr80i's. So hopefully you guys can guide me from here. I'm in the precess of building a millett minimax, so all of these impressions are unamped until it is built.
I LOVE the mids on the sr80, however the comfort and piercing highs leave a lot to be desired.
On the other hand, I LOVE the bass and comfort on the dt880, however the mids are recessed and lack sparkle. I have a feeling that some of the magic will come back when my amp (finally) gets built, however the mids are very recessed compared to my sr80i's that I feel are perfect.
I have a budget of ~$230 buying used, and my amp will (eventually) be the minimax. I don't really want to go grado because of comfort issues and I don't want closed headphones.
Are there any other options in this price range that fit my description?
