Okay. I've been looking for quite a while now, but I can't seem to find headphones that are not bulky, have an acoustic sound with good bass response, that is circumaural (around/over-ear) and has a detatchable cable. Portability is a priority right next to sound quality. I need help. I reeeaally like the V Modas because of their design and build quality, but the way people described the sound, it didn't seem like it was for me.
I listen to Jazz, Rock, Fusion, Funk, and a bit of electronic music (hip hop, k pop, etc.).
So the criteria here is:
- Acoustic tone
- Good bass response
- Detachable cable feature is a huuge plus
- Over Ear
- And of course, comfort
Oh, and I also want to be able to drive the headphones without an amp. But some headroom for one can't hurt. I guess I'm asking too much ha ha.. Hope you guys help me :)
There's the usual suspects for this. UE 6000, MDR-1R, Momentum. I'd leave the M100 out because that's definitely a basshead can where as the others listed have a generally good response through all of the frequencies. I suspect you'll like the UE 6000 or MDR-1R. If you don't mind true on-ear cans, check out the M80 as well.
