what's the most neutral (balanced), detailed headphone, with fairly balanced and extended bass thats ideal for mixing/critical listening but also does not need an amp for the iPhone?
- Currently have the Shure SRH840 (studio recording work and general listening) - love the treble and mid detail, hate the non-detailed bass (closed sound?), and listening on it makes me feel like im distant from the performer.
- Have TF10 (for on stage work) - it does what I need it to do, lets me hear every instrument on stage well, from bass, bass drum to keys and electric..) not too impressed with the sound, just a really good all rounder.
- Alessandro MS1a - not happy with it, non balanced sound (boomy mid bass), but Adele's 21 album sounds amazing on it. So I bought it.
Recommendations? Dont care about closed/open - just care about the sound.
i like my dt880 32 ohm. the bass isn't very loud, but it sounds good all the way down to the subs. you will used to it's very VERY neutral sound overtime. And it's a highly rated headphone by a dude who has some of the top "flagship" headphones.

As for out of an iPhone, that's what I run mine out of, and the levels get loud enough, but not as loud as say beats by dre.
actually, I just bought the t5p so I may sell the 880 if you're interested
