Hello Head-fi, I am quite new in the audiophile community. Currently looking for some headphones that can catch my interest. My current rig are, Headphone : ATH-ES7, Earphone : Fisher Audio Genesis, soundmagic PL-50, Denon c452, Player : Samsung Yp-Q2, Cowon J3, AMP : Go-vibe martini, Corda XXS
I have been using the ES7 for quite sometime and was very satisfied with the SQ. I did found threads that are similar to this current thead, but could not find any suitable answer or solution to my problems. In anycase, I have tried, M50, Grado Sr60, 80, shure 440 and ESW9. Other then grado sr80 which offers the closest to my needs, the rest isn't my cup of tea. So I was hopping that some experts could offer some assist in my quest.
These are the keys i am looking for:
Clarity - More on the vocal/diaphragm
Bass - punchy but NOT deep bass.
Mids - I love mids so looking for something that is nice.
High - a good level of high could be nice too.
Open/Close - Doesn't matter
Budget - Best if its from $100 - $150 (worst to worst $200)
Music preferences (Most listened to) - Classical>Jpop>blues>jazz (about the same amount of Classical and Jpops)
I do use headphones to game too....
Replies will be most appreciated. Thank you.
