Hi everyone, I've been lurking in this forum for a while, and I have to say that it provides me with extensive information about audio gears. I finally registered as I have some questions to ask regarding how the HD428 compares to SRH440.
I normally listens to J-Pop and K-Pop a lot, which consists of noisy rocky songs to slow ballads. Sometimes, when the mood changes, I would also listen to some audiophiles CDs like those by Emi Fujita and Olivia Ong (not sure if they are known here). I also love piano tracks, by artists like Yiruma (i.e. River Flows in You, Kiss the Rain, and many more). Occasionally, I would also listen to some orchestral music. Based on my self evaluation, I think I am looking for a all-rounder headphone, please correct me if I am wrong.
I am looking for a headphone that has adequate but not too boomy bass, and able to reproduce mids and highs with clarity. As I have not used any expensive audio gears before, I don't really know if the requirements I have mentioned is impossible to achieve in one headphone.
I hope someone who owns both of the cans, or have used them before can give some comments on them.
