Ill simplify what Im looking for to keep it easy.
I want a comfortable pair of closed cans, but I want more stress put on the durability of them. Plastic is almost not an option unless its out of the ordinary.
I need over the ear closed for isolation and the environments I work in.
I want accurate punchy bass, as well as emphasis on not bleeding out into other frequencies.
Clear mids are a big point of contention, as well as highs that at least dont exhibit sibilance or hiss. Needless to say from that, I want good separation.
Also needs to be able to be driven by at most, a Fiio e07k dac/amp.
Beyond that, pluses if it has; detachable cable and/or some parts are easily replaceable. Also a plus if its foldable, but again I want durability first alongside sound quality. Big cans are no problem as long as theyre fine around an average neck/head.
Price range no more than 200
Some sets that came to mind and researched
ATH-m50s; seems too punchy and over-emphasized in bass for what Id like
ATH-PRO700mk2 seems too bass heavy and DJ oriented
DT880/770 out of my price range
Ultrasone HFI580/780 have recessed mids, although these get really close to what Im looking for.
KNK KNS8400 I would love to except its more neutral across all frequencies (being as their monitoring phones beyond anything), rather than playing back recordings with emphasis on what they intended. Ergo from what I read, it normalizes the frequencies rather than plays them back accurately as-is
Ultrasone Pro 750 just squeak into your budget. You're Fiio should probably drive them, but I can't say for sure.
