So I really want a pair of good headphones. I just got a Clip+ and Rockboxed it to listen to FLAC files. I went with the Clip because FLAC and a ton of space. Now I really need a decent pair of headphones. I listen to mainly metal of sorts. Well using metal to describe what I listen to is the easy way.
Here are some examples of what I listen to:
Wolves in the Throne Room
Angel Eyes (from Chicago)
A forest of Stars
The music generally has a really wide range from double bass drums, guitar, and screaming to acoustic guitar, violin, piano, and melodic singing. There are a lot of long drawn out soundscapes as well with the musicians just jamming for 5 minutes or so. I really like anything that shows creativity on the harder, darker end of the spectrum.
Any advice for an IEM for around $200USD?
