i think the first time i posted this it got lost in the mix, lemme try again before starting my own thread!
...and you're gonna love it! I'm looking to upgrade to some "audiophile" quality headphones from my...wait for it...BOSE TRI-PORTS! I've been aware how much these things 'actually suck' for a long time, however, I have gotten so much AMAZING listening time with these over the past 4 years, they will forever hold a special place in my ear. They enlightened me to quality sound, and I would not be here today if I didnt buy these 4 years ago before I studied abroad. So for what they were and the role they played in my evolution, I cant say much bad about them...my wallet maybe. I plan on giving them away to an unenlightened friend. Anyway...
- budget: ~$225, over the ear (circumaural?! see im catching on!)
- music: electronic (downtempo & ambient + tech/house & glitch)
- use: 80% iPhone/MacBook + 20% home stereo w/ vinyl setup
- qualities: im new to these headphone terms, but I know I pay attention to the soundstage of my music. I really notice when I feel "in" the music and it sounds 3D. I think this also relates to "imaging" which I constantly do when Im listening to music. So cans that emphasize these are ideal, which may lend to an open design..but i really want the closed so oh well.
rail on me for the bose comments, but im more interested in your rec's!
listen with your spirit!
