Hey guys. I'm looking for a headphone in the range of $200-$300. My music tastes are really varied so I'm looking for something versatile. I've been using Sennheiser HD555's for the past 2 years and I like Sennheiser since they're headphones are so comfortable and I can literally wear them for the whole day without any discomfort. For open/closed, I'm planning to use them in a private environment so I'd like to stay with open. Since I don't really have THAT much money to spend, I'd prefer something that doesn't absolutely need a powerful amp, or if possible could be driven with a relatively cheap one that would keep me somewhere around my price range.
I thought Audio Technica AD900's would be a good idea since they're open, comfortable, pretty cheap, and don't really need an amp, but I've also heard they're quite lacking in bass which would kind of suck because I listen to quite a bit of drum and bass. However, if anyone has them and disagrees, please share. Other than those, I've taken a look at the AKG Q701 which sparked my interest, but those are kind of pushing my price range. Anyway, recommending an amp or dac with a model of headphones would be cool too. Thanks!
Sennheiser HD558, just remove the black rubber tape from inside each cups.
