Okay so this is my first post. Been lurking for a while and picked up a few phones to try out based on reviews and suggestions. I currently own a nice pair of Senn HD580s and I run them through a Creek Audio OBH-11 amp. For my portable setup I picked up a Fiio E11 and I have a 160GB iPod that carries my entire music collection, currently using Senn PX100s and Senn earbuds with it. I'm looking for two sets of phones; another set for home and a nice set to use with my iPod. I mostly listen to classic rock, progressive rock, blues, reggae, jazz and some folk. I'm looking for cans that have a nice balance with a little more high and low end than the Senns have. I do not consider myself a basshead but i do like a nice tight bottom (who doesn't?). I've set my budget at $200 for the home phones and $100 max for the portables.
I am currently trying out a few bang for your buck phones:
Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Your 580 is better than all of these, with the possible exception of the 750. It will give the bass you seek if properly amped.
