Looking for a pair of Headphones to replace my Samsom Sr850's
I listen to mostly Prog metal, Djent, alt rock, indie and a very small amount of Classical.
I would like a larger soundstage than the Sr850's
I like a fairly even response, dislike scooped mids, as I play guitar, so I like to really hear the guitars well.
Must be able to be driven from Mp3 player, Cdp, without an amp.
Must be circumaural (I can't stand on-ear)
Budget is £150. (If people insist on an amp to hear full SQ or properly drive them, include the amp as part of the budget)
How about moving up to an AKG K240? Great sound, and chances are you're already used to the fit...
It would help, but bass heavy headphones tend to have lower and midbass resonance which adds to that warm fuzzy sound but tends to leave the high end sharpness behind which is where your critical positional cues typically come from.
