dubstep - not the super bass heavy kind
also listen to, not a priority:
desktop headphone jack
ipod (3G, yes old)
building a cmoy
next one will be a PIMETA v2
thinking about either:
Koss UR40 - like the mids and highs on these, lacking in bass a bit
Was looking at:
Audio Technica AD700
However, doing some reading here, I'm worried that those are not going to have enought bass for my taste and my music. I'm not looking for loud resonating drowning bass. I want to keep the detailed/forward mids and highs, but I also want to have punchy tight bass. I'm not interested in good bass for boom-boom-boom-boom dance music. But I do want that synth bass drum hit to have a lot of punch and have a tight hard hit to it.
The above may go against my desire for an open can, which I am ok with. If I can stay open I will, but I'll go closed if I must. I'm trying to avoid the 'pressure' feeling you can get with closed cans, this causes me fatigue.
I absolutely want to stay under $150.
I'm new to using vocabulary to describe what I hear, so bear with me =) Please, give me some recommendations.
