Studio Worthy Headphones ("Better" than the Sennheiser HD 595's) - Roughly $150-
So I recently made a purchase of the HD 595's and I was quite dissatisfied (review here: http://www.head-fi.org/products/sennheiser-hd-595-headphones/reviews#4540). I was thinking of returning them but considering I got them on sale, I'm not 100% sure what exactly is better of similar type for the value.
Basically, I'm looking for headphones I can listen to through my receiver for music, but more importantly really, for my recordings (guitar, keyboard, alto saxophone, vocals) often mixed with other backing tracks. Obviously, for such a purpose, the sound must be very balanced (which the 595's actually had covered, just nothing else) so that when trying to balance your own material, it'd be accurate. The bass though must really have the capability of being significantly amplified (not just louder but punchier/more assertive) from its more balanced default sound. As a matter of fact, I might actually prefer more powerful bass by default. Also, very important is that it has good sound isolation so that when recording, no additional sound leaks into the microphone.
I really enjoy the warmth level of the Brainwavz M2's (ViSang R03's), for those familiar; I find it to be perfect!
Thank you guys, sincerely.
PS- I would actually be willing to push the budget to $200, as the very limit, in extreme cases that are maybe well worth over anything cheaper. I'd also just like to mention that current and previous sales should be kept in mind; I might wait and come across it once more. Thanks again
EDIT: The headphones don't need to be "Studio Headphones", just worthy enough/acceptable for the purpose. They can be, but I'd still like them to have some excitement.
Update: The concern and the current issue at hand is stated on the 21st post where the thread was revived: http://www.head-fi.org/t/529104/studio-worthy-headphones-of-up-to-200-update-i-got-the-ath-m50s-i-hate-them-why-thoughts/15#post_7983214. Thanks in advance!
