Im looking at getting a pair of closed cans, my budget is ~$200 USD.
I currently have a pair of grado sr80i and I LOVE them (Im considering getting the RS1i later on), but sadly they arent always ideal for out of home usage (I take them to uni, listen on the train, the bus, etc.).
I mostly listen to rock (Tool, Dream theater, Queen), a little electronic/techno and an even smaller amount of classical.
My only possible issue with the sr80i is the brightness in the highs, although it is less of an issue than it used to be, and can be easily fixed with some EQ.
The phones have to be powered of my clip+ or pc sound card (for work).
I have been looking at the audio technica M50 (coiled cable) and they are my current line of thought, if anyone has any opinions on alternatives or can compare these to the 'grado sound' it'd be awesome.
