First I want to apologize for the unclarity in my previous posts. I wasn't really making clear what I wanted and I didn't really know to be honest. Now, let's start from scratch;
Usage: Music, melodeath only. I currently use Sennheiser PC350(primarily bought for gaming) and a PA2V2 pocket amp(it's my dad's but he never uses it so I thought I'd use it). These headphones sound good and all but they're made for gaming and lack a bit of bass. Of course I would like some more bass but not like the one in Sennheiser CX300-II precision as I also own.
Portability and durability: Not a main issue, wouldn't sacrifice SQ for this as they're pretty much only gonna be used at home and occasionally in a car.
Design: Preferably over-ear but on-ear would do as well. Closed or open back doesn't matter, my family members would if they heard some real music . I could alternatively sit in my room, all I want is the best SQ.
Budget: $300. I do as mentioned earlier have a PA2V2 pocket amp that would work with some of the lower impedance headphones but I could of course buy a decent amp too, as long as the headphone+amp doesn't cost more than $300, please keep this in mind.
Comfort: They should be comfortable enough to be used for many hours in a row. This is why Sennheiser HD25 aren't an option for me, I'm wearing glasses and they're supposed to clamp really hard then. I've previously owned AKG K518 and after a couple of hour with them it starts hurting up where the headband sits on the head. This is something I don't want to experience again but I most likely won't as most headphones have padded headbands, just wanted to throw it out there.
Sound Quality is the highest priority but they also have to be comfortable. As I in my first post didn't give much details on what I wanted, this should make this easier both for me to get relevant options and for you to suggest headphones that suit my needs.
Thanks in advance for any reply's.
