Can i get a reccomendation? I listen to primarily house, electro house, dubstep, and drum and bass. I'm currently using the sony xb 500 and i dont really like them that much. I,m not using an amp with my portable device yet though so that could be why, but istill want to upgrad. I have a budget of $200, but i'm flexible. I'm looking for hearing my music the way that its supposed to be heard, but at the same time having a good amount of bass, and warm mids and highs.I'm just starting out so pleaseexcuse any incorrect terminology and i hope my details are clear. Thanks for your time.
Hi there. I suggest you look at something in the Ultrasone range. I would suggest the HFI-780. It has an excellent bass response, but at the same time the bass is extremely clear and it doesnt sacrifice any of the mids. Initially the highs can be a bit harsh, but after a nice long burn in, they settle down and you end up with a very refined sound. These cans are excellent for EDM. I have a pair that I use to listen to Trance and House with. You wouldnt need an amp with these, they would sound great coming just from your smartphone or portable music player.
