Ok so I went ahead and ordered my player so my Cowon Z2 should be at my place middle of next week. Now I am trying to finalize my hedphone options
The list right now is comprised of:
Beyer DT 1350
Audio Technica ATHESW9A
Beyer DT 1350
Shure SRH 940
My listening needs are very broad. Anywhere from Metallica, Godsmack, All the Remains, To Classical Symphonies and violinsts, to a very Small number of country and pop, to Mariachi, to select rappers.
Each of which really emphasis different frequency ranges.
I will say the most common genre I listen to is rock such as metallica and Godsmack, and even when listening to rap I don't prefer my bass to be overpowering, I like the presence but to me it should not overpower or distort the vocalist
Perviously I had mentioned that noise cancelling is desired but not needed, but isolation is needed while leakage isn't a concern.
Which of the above list would meet my needs?
Also if I were to add am amplifier into the equation is there a much better option in the about 300 range?
Also if I were to lift the noise isolation requirement completely and want a second pair of IEMS that around below 150 would I get a much better full size head phone option?
Since the DT 1350 (which you list twice & which is on Tyll's Wall of Fame) is currently on closeout for $209, the decision should get easier:
