Now my work environment has changed I decided it's time to replace my Shures with something a tad more comfortable and perhaps with a tad more excitement to the sound signature.
I like the sound of the SRH840, don't get me wrong... they're fairly flat, smooth, not too analytical, but I never come away from a long listening session wowed by music (rock & electronic for the most part). Comfort wise they are not great for long sessions, and as quick-on'n'off 'phones for listening to the occasional youtube video at my desk they are clumsy and awkward.
So what are the alternatives folks would recommend? I used to have grados and their sound sig is not for me. I still want something fairly flat sounding... no boomy bass or shrill highs, but perhaps something a little less flat than the Shures with a little more energy and warmth to the sig at a similar price. Anything jump to mind? Beyers perhaps? AKG? Denon?
