I am relatively new to this. I am looking for a pair of headphones that's will be suitable for my listening needs.I like details, with smooth highs and midrange. Bigger soundstage with tight bass would be preferred. I listen predominantly to the following genres:
Jazz, instrumental, vocals, classical, fusion jazz, soft rock.
I am also looking for portability as I will be using it at home and at work. At home, I have a Peachtree Nova and a Rogue Cronus Magnum to drive the headphones but at work it's basically for now through the computer. I will probably invest in a portable headphone amp down the line but no budget for that now.
I did some research and am looking at something in the price range of the Sennheiser HD600, which I read maybe good for classical and jazz. I like natural voicing and also the fine details of instruments in music I listen to.
I know I cannot have all I am looking for in my price range, so would welcome suggestions to point me in the right direction. Thanks.
What is your exact budget?
Are you OK with open cans like the HD 600 (they leak sound)?
What is the format of your music and other sounds you will putting into these cans?
Do you plan to use them outside your home/office? If so, in what way & with what equipment?
